Statement on Pacquiao's win

I join Filipinos around the world in celebrating the win of Sen. Manny Pacquiao over Argentine boxer Lucas Matthysse.

Manny, in winning the World Boxing Association Welterweight belt, has shown to us once more that nothing is impossible if you put your heart and mind in achieving a goal.

He has proven his critics wrong and in the process, continue to inspire our youth to never stop trying even in the face of overwhelming odds.

I thank Manny for fighting hard and for making the Filipino a proud race.
