World boxing champion Manny “Pac- Man” Pacquiao is tapping his relatives in creating a political clan to rival families like those of President Benigno Aquino that have ruled the Philippines for decades.
Philippine President Benigno Aquino defeated the Catholic Church and the tobacco lobby by using his popularity to push through twin laws to provide free condoms to the poor and boost taxes on cigarette and liquor.
Boxing champion Manny Pacquiao will probably face Floyd Mayweather Jr . or another fighter in November, whether he wins or loses his bid for a seat in Congress in today’s Philippine election, promoter Bob Arum said.
Philippine President Benigno Aquino defeated a former world boxing champion and leaders of the Catholic Church yesterday as lawmakers chose to advance 14-year- old legislation to fund free family planning.
