Senator Richard Gordon today hailed Manny Pacquiao for an admirable fight at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas saying that the young boxer has once again boosted the Filipinos’ image abroad.

“Manny made us all proud,” said Gordon, adding that Pacquiao may have lost inside the ring by decision but he is a winner in every Filipino’s heart as he showed a venerable performance and earned the world’s respect.

Gordon commended Pacquiao for finishing the course with his head up high. “All Filipinos should salute him. He played fair and demonstrated confidence that did not make Morales’ victory easy,” said Gordon.

Gordon said Pacquaio promoted abroad the image of the Filipinos as he ascertained the Filipinos as a strong contender in the field of sports. According to him, the enormous HBO sales established the strong Filipino market in the US considering that it was a non-title fight. He added that this phenomenon would recognize the Filipino market as an important constituency in the US and in the whole world.

Gordon urged the Filipinos to unite and make this event a catalyst to national change so that despite our lack of resources, we can attain our goals. Gordon emphasized that with Pacquiao’s admirable fight in the international limelight, the world once again recognized us as a potent force both in economic and political terms.
