Gary Valenciano pays tribute to Manny Pacquiao as a boxer

Gary Valenciano recognizes the contributions of Manny Pacquiao to the country and hopes that the Filipinos will recognize this in spite of his past mistakes.


Isang madamdaming mensahe ang ipinost ni Gary Valenciano sa kanyang Instagram account bago naganap ang laban ni Manny Pacquiao kay Timothy Bradley sa MGM Grand Garden Arena sa Las Vegas, Nevada, nitong Linggo, April 10, sa Pilipinas.

Nanalo ang Pambansang Kamao via unanimous decision.

Ito rin ang huling laban ni Manny bilang professional boxer dahil magreretiro na siya.

Ipinaalala ni Mr. Pure Energy sa kanyang followers na ang buong Pilipinas ang bitbit ni Manny sa tuwing sasabak ito sa isang laban.

Dahil din kay Manny, ayon kay Gary, ay nagkaroon ng interes ang ibang lahi sa mga Pilipino.

“For years he has fought the fights. He's won some and lost some. But every time he stood on that ring, he carried an entire country on his shoulders.

“Some from around the world have even come to find interest in us just because of him.”

Binanggit din ng singer na, bilang tao, may mga pagkakamali si Manny na kanya ring pinagbayaran.

Pero idiniin niyang lahat ng paghihirap ni Manny sa kanyang laban ay para sa mga kababayan niya.  

“Like us he's made mistakes...of which he's had to dreadfully pay for. But always for us, he's trained, and fought, and bled, and won many crucial battles.”

Nitong February, nasangkot sa kontrobersiya si Manny matapos niyang ihalintulad ang pakikipagrelasyon ng same sex sa hayop.

Umasa rin si Gary na sa huling laban ni Manny ay magkakaisa ang mga Pilipino para sa boksingero.

“Today he will stand in that ring again, and fight.

“And perhaps for one final battle, he will once more unite a nation. Even those who may hold a grudge against him, will somehow be drawn to the screen as they see him try to win again...for them.”

Nagpasalamat din si Gary kay Manny dahil sa inspirasyong ibinigay nito, sa tagumpay man o kabiguan.

“Thank you Manny Pacquiao...for the courage, the encouragement, the inspiration, the strength, the passion, the faith, the victories, and even the losses that have taught you valuable lessons in and out of that ring.

“Today with God in your heart He will once again show us all that even if this career didn't start with Him, it will end with Him. And for me this is what makes you a true champion; our champion...His champion. God bless you Manny Pacquiao.”

Binati naman ni Gary si Manny sa kanyang pagkapanalo via Instagram din at sinabing saludo siya sa hangarin ng boxer-turned-politician na tumigil sa pagbu-boxing at magpokus sa pagiging pulitiko.

Very well done...WE WON!!!! ?????????????
