MORE lawmakers, both administration and opposition, wished boxing champion and Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao a good fight and victory over American boxer Chris Algieri today at the Venetian Hotel in Macau.
The solons believe that with his speed, stamina, power, and determination, Pacquiao will win this match and bring pride to the country.
The two boxers will fight for the World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight belt.
House Deputy Speaker and Isabela Rep. Giorgidi Aggabao said that Pacquiao is very calculating and aggressive, good traits that can make him a victor. “He is a very wise fighter. He analyzes well his opponent, thus he knows when and how to attack, and eventually subdue his foe using his dominant punches,” Aggabao said.
He added the Filipino nation would again be united in cheering and praying for Pacquiao whose resilience and determination are worth emulating. “We wish Manny good luck, and we are confident about his victory over a younger opponent. Manny has more experience, speed and stamina. We pray for his personal safety and his victory for our entire nation,” Aggabao said.
Isabela Rep. Rodolfo T. Albano III, Deputy Minority Leader, said that there is no doubt Pacquiao will once again emerge the winner in the boxing fight because of experience, rigid training, a well-prepared plan, and strong determination. “Algieri may be younger and taller but Manny is stronger, faster and wiser. Even Manny’s past opponents attest to his greater powers. To Manny, we wish you the best and the whole nation once again will be united in praying for your safety and victory. We are proud of you,” Albano said.
Romblon Rep. Eleandro Jesus Madrona, chairman of the Committee on Accounts, expressed confidence that a 39th knockout victory for the Filipino boxing icon is highly possible. “Algieri’s overconfidence is a big mistake because Manny will surely defeat him. Manny has never underestimated any of his opponents, be his rival younger, older, taller or bigger than him. He always takes his rigid training seriously. No wonder his speed and stamina has been unmatched over the years. A knockout victory is very possible,” Madrona said.
Abakada Rep. Jonathan Dela Cruz also wished Pacquiao the best during his fight with Algieri and expressed confidence that he can make it. “I can only wish Rep. Pacquiao good luck. I am sure his athleticity and spirituality will carry him to victory. He deserves our best wishes. The entire nation will be praying for his victory,” Dela Cruz, a member of the House Independent Minority bloc, led by Leyte Rep. Martin Romualdez, said.
Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo added that Pacquiao’s courage, strength and discipline are the key factors to his expected victory. “Manny is very disciplined in sticking to his training regimen. And when he is in the boxing ring, he executes well the game plan against his opponent,” he said.
