The Filipino boxers gave a strong showing at this year’s Olympics.
No doubt about it.
A nation not just with a strong tradition in amateur boxing but also at the highest level of the sport — in world championship professional boxing.
None more so accomplished then Senator Manny Pacquiao of course.
He lead the calls of praise for the nation’s amateur boxers this year:
Manny Pacquiao on Twitter: “Congratulations to all the Filipino athletes for their excellent performance in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games! We salute your commitment and determination to bring honor to our country. Mabuhay! 🇵🇭 https://t.co/tFbsnDoUNn” / Twitter
Pacquiao returns to action this month against Errol Spence on August 21st.
