By Prince Golez
Malacanang is wishing Filipino boxing icon and Senator Manny Pacquiao luck ahead of his WBA welterweight title boxing match against American boxer Keith Thurman in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday.
“We wish him the best of luck in the world,” said Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo in a media briefing on Thursday.
“I’ve seen the fights of Thurman, magaling din e, bata pa, Yung ating boxer magaling din,” Panelo added.
Thirty-year-old Thurman is unbeaten at 29-0 with 22 knockouts while Pacquiao claims a record of 61-7-2.
In January, Pacquiao successfully defended his WBA (Regular) welterweight title against Adrien Broner with a unanimous decision.
