Filipinos remembered Muhammad Ali as the tough-talking boxing champ who was the talk of the town in 1975 – when he fought Joe Frazier in Manila where the match gained presidential honors from former President Ferdinand Marcos and first lady, Imelda Romualdez Marcos.
Now Senator Manny Pacquiao as per his Facebook post expressed his sorrow on Muhammad Ali’s death saying; “We lost a giant today,” offering prayers to Ali’s family.
