Statement of Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. on the victory of Rep. Manny Pacquiao over Bradley

10 April 2016

Congratulations to Manny Paquiao, our “Pambansang kamao” for winning against Timothy Bradley!

Once again, and as expected, the fighting congressman from Sarangani has given the Filipino people a new radiating source of honor and pride.

Manny has shown to the world that the spirit to overcome challenges defines our character as a Filipino.

Now, as in the past, Manny proves that the Filipinos are resilient in the face of odds, united for a common goal, and humble in victory.

The deeper meaning of his win over Bradley is a message of our ability to prevail once we put our heart, mind, and soul to whatever test we are facing.

Let us all translate our joy for the “Pacman’s” triumph into actual solidarity and strong faith as a nation and pursue concrete actions that will emerge us victorious against vicious troubles that try to knock down our country.
