Malacañan Palace
21 April 2014

President Benigno S. Aquino III received Sarangani Representative Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao a week after his match in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A.

After the courtesy call, the President and the new World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight champion had a private friendly conversation.

Malacañang was one of the many who congratulated the country’s “national treasure in global sports” for his triumph via unanimous decision against Timothy Bradley, Jr.
