Brownout woes better be fixed before Pacquiao mega-fight, senator says

Senator Ralph Recto on Wednesday warned the Department of Energy (DOE) of a public backlash if it fails to solve the rotating power outages before May 3, the scheduled mega-fight between boxing champ Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather.

In fact, Recto had advised Energy officials to ensure the date is a “National No Brownout Day” saying an outage at the time of Pacquiao’s fight will turn them into “punching bags” by the public.

The mega-fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather is set for May 2 (May 3 in the Philippines) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“I think one promissory note we should be asking from the Department of Energy (DOE) is that there will be adequate supply of electricity on the day of the Pacquiao-Mayweather bout. If the people won’t be able to cheer Manny because power is out, they will jeer the government,” Recto said.

The Senate and the House of Representatives are scheduled to sit down on Monday, March 2, for the bicameral conference committee discussion on President Benigno Aquino III’s request for emergency powers to contract additional capacity to avert an impending power crunch.

“You have the powers, you will have hundreds of millions of pesos, you have the time, so please see to it that there will be no brownout not only on May 3 but throughout summer,” Recto said.
