    MALACANANG on Sunday commended the victory of Manny Pacquiao against Brandon Rios which came in the wake of two devastating calamities that struck the country.

    Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said Pacquiao showed the true Filipino spirit by coming back from adversity and beating Rios in Macau after suffering  losses in his last two doubts.

    Pacquiao had lost to Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez before a rousing unanimous-decision victory over a tough but clearly overmatched Rios in Macau.

    Pacquiao’s win came after thousands were killed due to super typhoon ‘Yolanda’ and a magnitude 7.2 earthquake in Bohol.

    They Said It!

    “Ang pagwawagi ni Manny sa labang ito ay nagsisilbing bukal ng lakas at inspirasyon ng buong sambayanan matapos hagupitin ng bagyong Yolanda ang malaking bahagi ng Kabisayaan." - Part of the statement from Malacanang Palace 

    “Ang pagwawagi ni Manny sa labang ito ay nagsisilbing bukal ng lakas at inspirasyon ng buong sambayanan matapos hagupitin ng bagyong Yolanda ang malaking bahagi ng Kabisayaan."

    “Nawa’y hindi magbago ang prinsipyong gumagabay sa kanya bawat laban: na bawat suntok na kaniyang binibitawan ay suntok para sa dangal ng ating lahi,” Lacierda said.

    The entire statement of Malacanang is as follows:

    Nagbubunyi ang sambayanang Pilipino sa panibagong tagumpay ni Congressman Manny Pacquiao sa kaniyang pagwagi ng WBO International Welterweight Belt kontra kay Brandon Rios. Sa loob ng 12 rounds, nagpakita ng hindi matatawarang bilis at lakas ang ating pambansang kamao upang magapi ang kaniyang kalaban, at muling makamit ang tagumpay sa loob ng ring.

    Ang pagwawagi ni Manny sa labang ito ay nagsisilbing bukal ng lakas at inspirasyon ng buong sambayanan matapos hagupitin ng bagyong Yolanda ang malaking bahagi ng Kabisayaan. Nawa’y hindi magbago ang prinsipyong gumagabay sa kanyang bawat laban: na bawat suntok na kaniyang binibitawan ay suntok para sa dangal ng ating lahi.
