The Filipino boxing legend, Manny Pacquiao adds to his legacy and fuels hopes for a rematch with Floyd Mayweather. This is after outboxing Broner over 12 rounds. His defeat versus the latter was so controversial that this would garner more cash. Pacquiao already has the honor for being a great fighter. On top of that, a Chinese brand Anta Sports provides the boxing champ his attire. The logo is obvious during his every fight since their deal becomes final in November 2016. The Chinese brand certainly has a pretty good week right after that match. Back home, the great pride of the Philippines speaks in favor of medical marijuana that some Filipinos are still not ready to take. z

Not Just the Waray Connection

Pacquiao and Bongbong Marcos who is the VP Protestant against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo have something else in common besides bearing the banner of the Nacionalista Party when the Senator joins the party in 2019 to 2010. They both trace their roots to Leyte . Their respective moms, Aling Dionisia Pacquiao, and former First Lady Imelda Romualdez-Marcos are proud Warays. Rumors have it that Pacquiao is also a top contender for Philippine presidential election, 2022 just like Marcos. President Rodrigo Duterte separately said that he intends to make either of them as his successor. The two politicians are also pro-Arroyo. So, it is unlikely that they would ever run against each other.

Mayweather Crosses Paths with Mayweather

It might be a coincidence that Manny Pacquiao always crosses paths with retired American boxer Floyd Mayweather. The first one was during the clash between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers on January 22. Pacquiao and Mayweather met again the US this 2019. Last January 9, the two boxers met in the NBA’s Filipino Heritage Night. In Las Vegas, the American paid the Filipino boxer a visit ahead of his fight against 4-division world champion Adrien Broner. Mayweather also managed to watch his former opponent retain his World Boxing Association regular welterweight belt.

Medical Marijuana is Okay

President Du30 will support any bill that will seek the legalization of medical marijuana. Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo notes that Du30 has already made his stand on several instances favoring the legalization of medical marijuana. This goes the same with Pacquiao too who has nothing against it for as long as it is for medical .use.

Better Off Staying Retired

Pacquiao just unloads a verbal left straight on Mayweather’s jaw. With Mayweather still receiving harsh criticisms for feasting on a hapless and inexperienced Tenshin Nasukawa. This is during their exhibition bout last December. Meanwhile, Pacquiao impressively dispatched Broner, a fighter 11 years younger and a former four-division boxing champion. Pacquiao basically stated that he can still take on top-level opposition and that Mayweather is better off staying retired if he will just pick on newspaper boys.

Cash and Honor

Senator Pacquaio might like to prove that his previous defeat against Mayweather was unfair to him but he also can’t deny that loads of cash are at stake should a rematch realizes between them. The money from endorsements and other sponsorships may not be able to match that. On the other hand, Pacquiao remains honorable even without such an exhibition. He is one boxing icon that many professionals in his field support. As what his wife, Jinkee Pacquiao discloses, the possibility for both to be facing each other again inside the ring is only 5 between 1 to 10.

Bongbong Marcos Celebrates Manny Pacquiao’s Victory as he Stays Healthy for the Election Campaigns

Bongbong Marcos explains that health must be the priority on a daily basis and not just a mere New Year’s resolution. He cites Manny Pacquiao’s victory as an example of never-fading healthcare through exercises on a separate post. This is after receiving compliments from people saying that he looks younger than his age. He jokingly said that he carefully chooses his parents to remain youthful. Marcos insinuates that following his father’s advice, he stays healthy to be fit in facilitating election campaigns and in fulfilling his destiny to lead in the near future. z

[VIDEO]: 5 BBM Tips for a Healthy Life

Celebrating Manny Pacquiao’s Victory

Marcos said that he is happy to shout the name of Manny Pacquiao because of his recent win. WBA welterweight champion, Pacquiao delivers a dominant performance to earn a unanimous decision victory over Adrien Broner in Las Vegas recently. The 40-year-old Filipino multiple world champion was quicker and more accurate. He controlled each round and cruised to the triumph over Broner, 29, who fought gamely and stayed upright despite being hit with several heavy combinations. Retired great Floyd Mayweather attended the fight. It fuels speculation of a rematch against Pacquiao. Undefeated Mayweather beat Pacquiao in 2015.

Pacquiao’s Call to Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather ignores Pacquiao’s call for a rematch after watching the Filipino coast to victory over Adrien Broner. Mayweather is linked with another nine-figure payday against Pacquiao. The latter rebounds after his defeat to Jeff Horn, dispatching Lucas Matthysse and Broner with relative ease. Pacquiao immediately delivers a message to Mayweather after the judges the unanimous points victory. “Tell him to come back to the ring and then we can fight,” he said.

Continuous Healthy Training

Just like Pacquiao, BBM, as he is fondly called, makes sure that he hits the gym at least 4 to 5 times a week. It stays in his memory what his late father said about exercise. It is vital for not just the body but also the mind to function properly especially when working for the welfare of the Filipino people. That is the secret of Marcos’ youthful and healthy look.

Shield Against High Blood Pressure

The VP Protestant also mentions that having close ties with family members can alleviate or prevent high blood pressure. He admits that his son, Sandro, and nephew Borgy had the time of their life when he was under their makeover scheme. He swears that when his eldest son is back from England, he would surely organize a healthy makeover for him too.

Election Campaigns for 2019 and 2022?

There is no sign at all that Marcos worries about the electoral protest against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo. There may be some truth about what the President said that Robredo will finish her term as Vice President. That being said, the former senator is very visible nowadays. He swears to do strenuous election campaigns perhaps for his sister, Imee Marcos who is running for Senator in 2019. This would make him very visible towards the possible 2022 presidential poll. Why not? He’s definitely someone that many people look up to as the possible new leader of the country after Du30.
