YOKOHAMA, Japan, Nov. 14 — President Benigno S. Aquino III congratulates boxing icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, who once again won the admiration of his countrymen in pulling off another convincing win over Mexican boxer Antonio Margarito.

After meeting with some 1,000 members of the Filipino community at the Yokohama Futaba High School on Sunday afternoon here, the President said he was able to talk and congratulate Pacquiao shortly after the fight at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

“Pinuri natin sa ipinamalas niya kanina dahil pinahanga na naman niya ang mga Pilipino,” the President said.
