The new WBO Welterweight Champion, Senator Manny Pacquiao, paid a courtesy call on President Rodrigo Duterte at the Malacañang Palace on Monday after a successful fight against American boxer Jessie Vargas in Las Vegas on November 6.

The president congratulated the “pambansang kamao” who gave honor to the country once again.

Pacquiao gave a black and gold shirt to Duterte who in turn commended the boxer for defending PNP Chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa regarding the free boxing tickets and all-expense paid trip to Las Vegas that he received from the people’s champ.

“You were right in defending Bato. What you donated [was] your skill. It is a donation…And you can afford to pay the expenses, it is commensurate with your wealth. There is no criminal liability,” Duterte told Pacquiao.  — UNTV News and Rescue
