Manny Pacquiao may have tried so hard to keep his promise in beating his record for being an habitual absentee when he was still a congressman now that he’s already a senator but it seems that he is not off from that yet because no one prohibits him from doing that anyway.
Manny always make it a point however that he is doing his job to the highest of his ability – but cannot guarantee his number of days present in the senate sessions. Since there’s no law prohibiting this yet, Senator Pacquaio may be off the hook this time but people will not forget that he promised to concentrate on his job as law maker.
His comeback fight may also disappoint supporters who believed in his words that he would retire from boxing – tentatively scheduled for November 5 but of course, they knew that being an athlete – turning his back from the sports that he loves most would make his life incomplete. So, many are still hoping that aside from him scheduling his fights during senate breaks – that he would not succumb to injuries that would prevent him from functioning as senator of the Philippines.
