ABBI CHENG, YouTube Review

President Gloria Arroyo lauded the victory of Filipino boxing icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao over Mexican American Oscar “The Golden Boy” de la Hoya in a welterweight bout billed as “The Dream Match” at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada Saturday (Sunday in the Philippines).

“The President and the Filipino people would like to extend our profound congratulations to Manny Pacquiao,” said Malacañang Deputy Spokesperson Lorelei Fajardo in a statement released shortly after the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world beat 10-time world champion De la Hoya.

”His boxing feat is testament to the spirit of the Filipino – our resiliency and strength to face the challenges that come our way,” Fajardo said.

”Pacquiao has proven once again: Magaling ang Pinoy at bayani ang Pinoy!” she said, adding: “Our congratulations, too, to Team Pacquiao. Their commitment to face the challenge of a tough fight has proven that teamwork is a big boost to a collective effort to win a fight.”

“We must as a nation work together as Team Philippines to face the challenges of the world economic downturn,” Fajardo said.

”Filipinos everywhere around the world cheered for Manny who emerged victorious and once again gave glory to our country,” she said.

Pacquiao was declared winner when De la Hoya refused to come out of his corner after he got a flurry of punches from the  reigning WBC Lightweight Champion at the end of the eight round.
