Bob Arum confirmed that congressman Manny Pacquiao cancelled his check-up with Neal ElAttrache, his surgeon at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles last July 4 according to Inquirer.net’s report. Arum was upset that Pacquiao did not push through with the said check-up but Manny was confident that his therapy locally is good enough and that he’s feeling a lot better according to his interview with GMA News.
It has been reported that Pacquiao traveled to Indonesia just days after the scheduled check-up to visit a Filipina who was imprisoned for allegedly being a drug mule – who is now on death row. This was where Manny and his wife Jinkee were seen praying over Mary Jane Veloso. They believe that Mary Jane is innocent and only a victim of human trafficking which Manny advocates to topple.
Here’s CNN Philippine’s coverage on the prioritized visit:
