Manny Pacquiao finally admits in a recent interview that Gov.Imee Marcos who runs for Senator in the upcoming election is included in their line up. Pacquiao is the campaign manager of PDP-Laban. Marcos joins her co-Nacionalista party members, Cynthia Villar, and Pia Cayetano to complete the magic 12 of the great boxer’s party. This is contrary to the rumors earlier saying the visuals of Pacquiao’s endorsement of Marcos were fake. z

[VIDEO]: Senator Manny Pacquiao Confirms that as PDP-Laban’s campaign manager, Gov. Imee Marcos is included in their political sorties.

Let the Laws Take Care of Alleged Corruption Issues

Pacquiao is smart enough to answer the interviewer’s question about how he feels when it comes to Marcos’ family issues of corruption. He said that the country has laws that deal with those. Guilty or not, it has nothing to do with her political platform that is in line with the administration’s quest.

The Count is Just Right

The Filipino legend endorses candidates outside the 5-member slate of the ruling party. Pacquiao enumerated the names of senatorial bets he endorses. They are 12 candidates in total. 7 of them are from other parties. Which 3 of them are from the Nacionalista party.

5 MaBaGoKoTo Bets

Pacquiao enumerates the names of senatorial bets he endorses. There are a total of 13 candidates. more than the number of seats up for grabs. These include the 5 PDP-Laban bets called MaBaGoKoTo: – Former top cop Ronald dela Rosa – Duterte’s close aide Bong Go – Maguindanao 2nd District Representative Zajid Mangudadatu – Senator Aquilino Pimentel III – Former presidential political adviser Francis Tolentino

8 or 7 from Other Parties?

Pacquiao also endorses these 8 other candidates outside of his party slate: – Jinggoy Estrada – Bong Revilla – Grace Poe – Cynthia Villar – JV EJercito – Sonny Angara – Pia Cayetano and – Imee Marcos

Not Debunking Imee Marcos’ Endorsement for Senator

Both Du30 and Pacquiao support Marcos. Not to mention the President’s daughter, Sara Du30-Carpio who organizes Hugpong ng Pagbabago. There are obvious overlappings in some of the candidates like in Gov. Marcos’ case. However, this is not an issue for Pacquiao. They just have to prioritize their own candidates. Although recently in Cebu, the endorsement of Pacquiao for Marcos was very notable.

Netizens are disgusted on a TV anchor’s line of questioning, boxing legend, Manny Pacquiao. They said that she intends to intimidate Pacquiao on his possible plan to run for a higher office. Is a college degree important for a president? He solemnly agrees that it is indeed necessary for such a position. Then he added that he is actually finishing a college degree from a local university that he cannot disclose for the time being. z

[VIDEO]: Pacquiao reveals he is finishing a college degree

Not Just Good in Boxing

The Filipino hero and Senator explains during the interview that although he succeeds in boxing, he also ventures in other sports like basketball. He continues by saying that it is the same in his political career. He does not stop to improve himself that’s why he continues his education despite the many things he has to do. It does not mean that he is eyeing for the presidency. In fact, he does not have any plans to run for a higher office right now.

Bongbong Marcos’ Vice President?

In one of Bongbong Marcos’ vlogs, he floats the idea that the Marcos-Pacquiao tandem in 2022 is possible. He answers this query after a question was posted online. Marcos added that they are both good friends so, if the right time for him to run for the country’s top leader comes, Pacquiao can be his Vice President. They can always talk about it.

Honorary Degree

Manny Pacquiao is actually a doctor (Ph.D.) when it comes to education. Southwestern University in Cebu, Philippines confers an honorary doctorate degree in humanities to the Pacman. It acknowledges his contribution to giving the country great honors through sports. Some things can’t just be possible through college but as the great boxer said; from the University of Experience.

CHED Controversy

Amidst controversy and criticism from some sectors, Southwestern University President, Eldigario Gonzales, said that they are thankful that the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) allows them to confer the honorary degree to Manny Pacquiao. Earlier, the commission (CHED) disagrees with the conferment of an honorary degree in human kinetics. Gonzales said that an honorary degree in human kinetics should be more appropriate. Since kinetics is the science of sports, physical activities and recreation. Pacquiao expresses his gratitude to SWU for taking notice of his achievement. Harvard lawyer and Top Rank president Bob Arum was a special guest during the event.

The University of Experience by Manny Pacquiao

Like his compatriot, Bongbong Marcos, Pacquiao never grows bitter when it comes to criticisms thrown against him. He simply laughs them off. The pride of the Philippines is so secure that nothing can bring him down even such senseless questioning of a TV personality. Pacquiao’s University of Experience really polishes him to not just become a successful human being but a remarkable leader free from hate but full of love for his countrymen.

Cash and Honor: Manny Pacquiao on Mayweather and Medical Marijuana

cash
By: Elena Grace Flores

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

[VIDEO]: The Filipino boxing champ insinuates that his and Floyd Mayweather’s paths always crosses and that he has no problem with medical marijuana.

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

By: Elena Grace Flores

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.

OFW Installment for Bongbong Marcos-Manny Pacquiao Tandem for 2022

installment
By: Elena Grace Flores

The long inactivity with regards to Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo triggers many loyalists to divert to the elections 2022 instead of the upcoming midterm elections for 2019. The first OFW instalment comes in a form of a social media comment that suggests Marcos’ tandem with Senator Manny Pacquiao. BBM welcomes this option wholeheartedly a he and the boxing legend are good friends. z

YouTube video byBongbong Marcos

[VIDEO]: The boys and I had a great time reading through your comments! We thank you for your kind words and we hope you keep them coming!

Learning from History

“Those who do not learn from history are damned to repeat it, and we do not want that, said Bongbong Marcos once. The whole point is to move forward. That’s why you address the problems of today with the available solutions that you have today, not what happened two generations ago,” he emphasized. Marcos said this to address the issue of his late father’s regime. Pacquiao previously defended him saying that he is not his father.

The Same Political Enemies

Marcos previously slams human rights groups and the Aquino administration for their calls to his family to apologize over the atrocities that allegedly took place under the leadership of the Marcos patriarch. He might have run together with the late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago but it was obvious that his team was in cahoots with then-Mayor Rodrigo Du30. Pacquiao on the other hand, ran under the picket of former VP Jejomar Binay when Du30 was hesitant in running for the Presidential race in 2016. Du30, Binay, Pacquiao and Marcos detest the human rights groups and the Aquinos for that matter.

Social Media Engagements

Marcos and his sons took the time to reply to some social media comments at their online pages. Since the Filipino electorates are personality-based, it is crucial for Marcos to update his supporters with regards to their daily undertakings for the people’s welfare. According to the head researcher of Pulse Asia, most people voted for Marcos in 2016 because of the concrete evidence of his achievements and the useful infrastructure projects of his parents during the golden age.

A Long Way to Go After ther First Installment

The OFW First Installment video where BBM mentions his possible tandem with Pacquiao serves as a teaser for the 2022 elections. Both are not part of the 2019 midterm poll. However, Marcos’ sister, Imee Marcos makes it to the magic 12 during recent surveys. It would be the 2019 Senatorial race first prior to the 2022 Presidential and Vice Presidential elections.

Right Time

Facebook that is the major social media medium in the country. It conducts an anti-spam campaign at their popular site recently. Many group pages that do multiple postings are temporarily suspended. The aim is good but the abrupt penalty made the pro-Du30 faction believes otherwise. That FB tries to suppress their freedom of expression. In reality, when things are quiet, then it is not yet the time for BBM to emerge victoriously.
