GENERAL SANTOS CITY, South Cotabato – Puspusan na ang paghahanda ni People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao para sa laban nila ng Mexican boxer na si Juan Manuel Marquez sa darating na Disyembre.

Ayon kay Manny, magiging mas agresibo siya sa kanilang ika-apat na paghaharap ng Mexican four-division king sa MGM Grand sa Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nais ng pambansang kamao na mabura ang duda ng ilan sa kanyang major decision win laban kay Marquez noong November 12, 2011.

Bukod sa pagsasanay sa People’s Champ Gym, madalas din ang outdoor training ni Pacquiao.

“Yung footwork kailangan nating dagdagan pa, kasi sa mga prevoius fight natin, yun ang nakikita namin na nabawasan sa atin,” pahayag ng trainor ni Pacquiao na si Boboy Fernandez.

Ayon sa Team Paquiao, mas pinili nilang sa General Santos City magsanay para mas makapag-focus si Manny.

“Sa Gensan kasi mas mako-control mo ang crowd, sa Baguio magandang training din naman, pero di natin maiwasan na yung mga kaibigan natin bibisita sa Baguio. Dito na muna sa Gensan then tuloy na sa states,” dagdag pa ni Fernandez.

Kampante naman ang pound-for-pound king na kaya nitong pagsabayin ang training at ang pag-aasikaso sa kanyang kandidatura.

“Hindi naman magulo ang politIka sa aming probinsya, wala naman akung kalaban, so walang problema,” maikling pahayag ni Manny. (Ritchie Tongo/Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

Pacquiao urges PDP-Laban members to set aside politics for now, focus on solving problems

Senator Manny Pacquiao


MANILA, Philippines – Senator Manny Pacquiao, who serves as acting national president of political party PDP-Laban, called on his party-mates to focus more on solving the country’s problems and not politics.

Pacquiao made the call on Friday in response to reports that some PDP-Laban members are urging President Rodrigo Duterte to run as vice president in 2022.

The senator said the move is not sanctioned by the party’s leadership and he stressed that the focus of the party now is to help the public deal with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

“As party president, I have the responsibility to enforce the rules, promote cooperation, insist on civility and respect, and most of all, to remind you that we are one team, because it is only when we are united that we can stand strong to weather any storm and to face the greatest dangers,” Pacquiao said in a statement.

On Thursday, House deputy speaker Eric Martinez revealed that some members of PDP-Laban are circulating a resolution urging  the president to run for vice president in the 2022 elections for continuity’s sake.

But Pacquiao said now is not the time for politics and that party members should prioritize the needs and lives of Filipinos amid the public health crisis.

“God destined us to be leaders to our respective constituents, and by showing them by example that we know our priorities we are sending a strong message that we value them, that we are aware of their needs and we give them hope,” he said.

“I, therefore, call upon all our party members to focus more on the opportunity to serve. Our countrymen need us now more than ever. There will be a time for politics, but for now, the lives and wellbeing of our countrymen should be our utmost priority,” he added.
