SUPORTADO ng mga kongresista ang rematch nina pambansang kamao at Sen. Manny Pacquiao at Floyd Mayweather.
Pero sana daw ay huwag ‘hug and runaway’ ang maging taktika ni Mayweather kung muli silang maghaharap ni Pacquiao, ayon kay Eastern Samar Rep. Ben Evardone.
“I hope he will really face Manny Pacquiao as a boxer. Many fans were disappointed the last time he faced Manny because he keeps on running inside the ring. Manny should take that challenge and prepare for the biggest fight of his career,” ani Evardone.
Ganito rin ang sinabi ni Surigao del Norte Rep. Ace Barbers.
“Mayweather should show a class of a real boxer like what Sen. Pacquiao has been showing in his fights.”
Ayon naman kay House Deputy Speaker Raneo Abu sana ay gawing ‘exciting’ ni Mayweather ang laban. “We expect Mayweather to make an exciting fight with our People’s Champion by avoiding hugging and running.”
Pabor din sa muling paghaharap ng dalawa sina Quezon City Rep. Winnie Castelo, Parañaque City Rep. Gus Tambunting, Negros Occidental Rep. Albee Benitez, at Puwersa ng Bayaning Atleta Rep. Jericho Nograles.
“Let the true champion be known. This is a welcome development to the boxing world to settle once and for all the controversial issue,” ani Castelo.
Naniniwala naman ni Tambunting na hindi na tanong kung gusto ni Pacquiao na lumaban, ang tanong ay kung tatanggapin ito ni Mayweather.
Sa kanyang Instagram post sinabi ni Mayweather na handa siyang bumalik sa ring para laban si Pacquiao.
“I’m coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year another nine figure pay day on the way @mayweatherpromotions,” saad ng post.
