Leonardia’s statement runs in full below
While we are stunned by the unexpected result of the fight of our Adopted Son, Senator Manny Pacquiao, in his WBA title bout earlier today, August 22, we saw that he put up a gallant fight worthy of respect and admiration by boxing followers around the world.
Inspite of this, the fact remains that his unequaled eight-division world titles has made him a living legend in the sport. What he has achieved in boxing is something no other has ever done.
And come what may, he is already immortalized among the greatest boxers ever.
Mabuhay ka Senator Manny Pacquiao!
