    ‘Pacquiao rises from defeat to victory’

     
    PHILIPPINE lawmakers on Monday said Rep. Manny Pacquiao of Sarangani Province attributed his rematch triumph over Timothy Bradley mainly to his good preparation, hard work and perseverance to rise from defeat to victory.
    "As we watched every punch he absorbed, we could feel the pain and his sacrifices for the country. His ability to inspire is truly unparalleled. He is truly a national treasure," Marikina City Rep. Miro Quimbo said.
    Valenzuela City Rep. Magtanggol Gunigundo said Pacquiao won because he came fully prepared for the bout against Bradley.
    Parañaque City Rep. Gus Tambunting said their colleague’s courage and perseverance largely contributed to his victory.
    "I congratulate my colleague and party mate in the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) Rep. Manny Pacquiao. You have shown the world that the Filipino is always up to the challenge and has a 'never say die' attitude," Tambunting said.
    Rep. Jonathan dela Cruz of the independent minority bloc said Pacquiao had all the necessary assets that steered him to victory against Bradley.
    "Manny deserved it. To God be the glory. He had focus, preparation and determination," said dela Cruz.
