It looks like the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ detractors were so keen on burying the lies they spread to demonize him by spreading rumors that the Bongbong Marcos we see now is just a clone. DNA testing can easily prove it these days. However, the son of the great Filipino leader finds it unnecessary. At a glance, he certainly has the Marcos traits inside and out.

Nature of Speculated Death
There are two rumors about how the younger Marcos apparently died. One said that he was killed in a bar by a foreign national in London after a fight. The second one was by car accident both locally and in London. The former Senator even jokes about it and shares his experience how he was asked by classmates – if he really is the real Bongbong Marcos.
Clone Story is Political in Nature
The late President Marcos’ supremacy during his time cannot be fathomed by his enemies. They suspect that his first lady, Imelda Marcos takes over after his reign. The son can only be his possible heir because his sisters had other interests previously. Not unless he’s already dead. People can have second thoughts on voting for an alleged clone.
The Truth Hunts Detractors
The challenger for the VP race gives, even more, reasons for his detractors to discredit him using fake news. He is about to win it given the number of credible witnesses of alleged election fraud in 2016. The hairline lead of VP Leni Robredo can easily be surpassed through the recount for his pilot provinces come February 2018.
Australia’s third-largest city, Brisbane secures the rights to host Pacquiao-Horn boxing rematch in November. It beats major cities such as Sydney and Melbourne. The guarantee to pay Manny Pacquiao’s talent fee win or lose was its packed 55,000-seat Suncorp Stadium last July 2. However, Department of Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo said that they have an agreement with MP Productions to hold the event at the Philippine Arena in December.

[VIDEO]: The new WBO world welterweight champion Jeff Horn received a ticker tape parade and was presented with the key to the city in Brisbane on Thursday (6th July).
The DOT eyes December 9 as the fight date. It is a week before the birthday of the boxing legend. It agrees with the MP Productions thereby disputing Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk’s announcement that the boxing rematch for Brisbane is on in November.
“I have had a meeting earlier today which has confirmed that Manny Pacquiao will definitely be in Brisbane this year for a rematch with Jeff Horn,” Quirk had said. Quirk added that Brisbane Marketing, the city council’s major events subsidiary negotiations with promoters Top Rank and Duco Events.
Beating a Boxing Legend
Horn shocks the world with a controversial victory over the heavily-favored Pacquiao last July 2. The former eight division champion and Senator is referred to as the nice guy of the boxing arena. Even the audience in Brisbane applauded him when he accepts his defeat like a gentleman contrary to the complaints made by many boxing experts that he should have won.
Nothing More to Prove
Horn’s camp may be right saying that you have to be a legend to beat one. Can’t please everybody. All they need to do is to prepare for the next big event. The Senator has reached a point that he does not have to prove himself anymore as a boxer. Perhaps, just to say that despite his retiring age in the ring, he is still on par with the rising new generation champions.
