Pambansang Kamao Manny Pacquiao reacted to the Jeff Horn undercard fight offer to him with his statement, “insulto naman ‘yun”.
Senator Manny Pacquiao, who is considered to be the ‘Pambansang Kamao’ of the whole Philippines, reacted to the offer to him to play the undercard fight for Jeff Horn.
It can be recalled that the Filipino boxer previously was defeated during their fight last year.
Now that Jeff Horn is set to encounter Terence Crawford this coming April 14 in the United States of America, the camp of the ‘Pambansang Kamao’ turned down the offer.
Based on the article recently published in Pilipino Star Ngayon, Manny Pacquiao will just set his feet on the boxing ring in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia wherein he is the main attraction of the fight.
If his plan to fight in Malaysia will push through, then it will be his first time to fight in the said country which will also happen in April or May this year.
However, the Filipino boxer has a negative reaction to the Terence Crawford-Jeff Horn undercard fight in Las Vegas.
“Insulto naman ‘yun,” the Senator/boxer expressed when he was asked about it.
That was the offer for him that came from Top Rank chief Bob Arum. On the other hand, the disposition of Manny to the undercard fight offer to him is something inappropriate to the current status of his boxing career.
Meanwhile, he said that he will still have enough time for his preparation and training for his plan to fight in Kuala Lumpur.
“Hindi pa naman late. Puwede pa sa April or May. Pwede na ako mag-training,” said the ‘Pambansang Kamao’ who is an eight division champion.
The last boxing fight which Manny Pacquiao did was in July 2017 wherein the WBO welterweight title was taken from him by Jeff Horn, based on the article.
The boxing champion from Saranggani is considered to be one of the Filipinos who has given pride to the country.
