Monico Puentevella and Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas.* Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said he would like to see Senator Manny Pacquiao win the first boxing gold for the Philippines in the 2024 Olympics in Paris. If ever Pacquiao considers fighting again, Lacson said he hopes it will be in the Olympics that now allows professional boxers to join. In the Olympics he will only have to fight three rounds, Lacson said, when it was pointed out that the boxing icon would be 45 by then. Pacquiao, 42, was defeated by Cuba’s Yordenis Ugas, 35, during their WBA welterweight title fight in Las Vegas, Nevada, Sunday. “I think it was convincing win for Ugas,” Lacson said. Lacson said maybe the senator will consider hanging up his gloves, but if he decides to fight again he...

Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao, who was defeated by Cuba’s Yordenis Ugas during their WBA welterweight title fight in Las Vegas, Nevada, “will always be our people’s champ”, Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said Sunday, August 22.
