Juan Manuel Marquez pinuri rin sa Senado
HINDI lamang si Saranggi Rep. Manny Pacquiao ang pinuri sa Senado kundi maging ang Mehikanong si Juan Manuel Marquez na natalo sa pamamagitan ng majority decision ng hukom sa World Boxing Organization na ginanap sa Las Vegas, Nevada kahapon (Linggo, Nobyembre 13).
“Manny Pacquiao will always be the People’s Champ. As an athlete, I’m sure he would have wanted a more decisive win. Victory is always sweeter that way,” ayon kay Cayetano.
“But Juan Manuel Marquez also fought well, and since the fight was fierce and close up to the last second, and without anyone scoring a knockdown, this is one of those close fights where people will have differing opinions on who fought better,” dagdadg ng senador.
Aniya, kapwa isang magaling na boksingero sina Paqcquiao at Marquez na dapat parangalan at respetuhin at naipakita ni Pacquiao ang kanyang kakayahan bilang isang atleta na nagbibigay ng karangalan sa ating bansa.
“Still, both are world-class fighters who deserve our admiration and respect. And every Filipino knows that as an athlete, Manny has proven time and again that he trains hard and fights hard and continues to bring honor to our country,” ayon kay Cayetano.
