MANNY PACQUIAO: boxing versus politics.........
March 15, 2007 2:43am CST
I assumed every one of us knows about Manny Pacquiao, the super boxer. Well, we just live in the same place here in Gensan, Philippines. For the benefit of those who don’t know about him, he’s now the phenomenal titleholder of WBC super featherweight boxing champion who twice defeated Erik Morales of Mexico. By education, he had just recently passed and received his high school diploma through placement test program of the Dept. of Education Culture and Sports. He’s decision is now final to run for the congress for the first district of South Cotabato that comprises our city and 4 other municipalities. In his TV interviews and appearances he keeps on saying he wanted to help his “kababayan” (fellowmen). The issue here is, how will a high school graduate PACMAN deals with the debates of national concern in the congress? What will happen to his boxing career, which is now at its peak? I beg you all to advise Pacman on what to do and the voters in our district whom to give there votes….
