MAKATI CITY –  Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao, fresh from his knockout win over Argentinian champion Lucas Matthysse in Kuala Lumpur, seems to be still in cloud nine.

 

This as he disclosed acquiring a new multi-million peso mansion in another posh village in Makati City.

 

The fighting senator, who years ago acquired his first mansion in Forbes Park, the home of the country’s wealthiest and elite also in Makati for over P500 million, gave a preview of his new home with a tour accompanied by his wife Jinkee and their children.

 

According to reports, the second Pacquiao mansion in Makati is located in Dasmarinas Village which is adjacent to Forbes Park.

 

A video of the Pacquiao family’s tour of their mansion has gone viral, it was reported.

 

Pacquiao, the only boxer with eight different divisions world title, appeared very happy with his wife Jinkee and children at their new home, as blessings just keep on coming for the family, KAMI reported.

 

KAMI reported that the tour of the mansion came just a few weeks after Pacquiao won his boxing match in Kuala Lumpur.
 

In a recent report by KAMI, Manny took his family to play and have fun at the arcade, with his son Jimuel impressing him with his punching power.

 

Pacquiao  won his fight against  Matthysse with a seventh-round TKO victory. With this win, he also captured the WBA Welterweight Title and his 60th victory as a professional boxer.

 

The fighters that he could possibly fight next are Terrence Crawford, Vasyl Lomachenko, Mikey Garcia and Amir Khan.

 

Earlier, Pacquiao, who is also an actor, turned to showbiz again.

 

This time, however, Pacquiao entertained his supporters by appearing in the country’s top noontime shows – “It’s Showtime” on ABS-CBN and “Eat Bulaga” on the GMA Network – and exchanged jokes with the hosts.

 

Both networks later played up their reports on the world boxing icon’s visit which took place on the same day, July 24.

 

At GMA, “Eat Bulaga” mainstays Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon welcomed the fighting senator. Pauleen Luna-Sotto and Pia Guanio were also there, among others.

 

Sen. Vicente Sotto has taken a leave from the show since assuming the presidency in the Senate and so he was not in the show during the world champion’s visit.

 

"Maraming-maraming salamat sa inyong lahat sa walang-sawang pagsuporta, lalong-lalo na sa pagsuporta ninyo sa Eat Bulaga," Pacquiao told his audience and followed it with a joke thathe will be replacing his fellow senator in the show.

 

"Sabi ni Tito Sen, 'Ikaw na muna ang papalit sa akin.' Manny, Vic and Joey!" he said as reported by GMA News..

 

Before guesting in “It’s Showtime,” Pacquiao met with ABS-CBN officials as he visited the network’s facilities.

 

 In “It’s Showtime,” the fighting senator noted his guesting experience seemed to have been incomplete as he was not able to meet his favorite host, Vice Ganda. 

 

Pacquiao said he had hoped to meet Vice Ganda who, he said, he and wife Jinkee follow everyday in the show.

 

 “May kulang kayo na gusto ko makita. May gusto ako makita at ma-meet,” Pacquiao told the show’s hosts. 

 

The studio audience easily got who the “People’s Champ” was referring to and shouted Vice Ganda’s name.

 

“Ako at saka ‘yung asawa kong si Jinkee, lagi kami nanonood, araw araw,” Pacquiao admitted. 

 

Karylle explained that Vice Ganda was not feeling well so he was not at the show when Pacquiao came in. 

 

Pacquiao then asked that he be invited him again when Vice Ganda is feeling better. 

 

During the show, the boxing champ gamely showed his funny side as he exchanged banters with Ryan Bang, who was tapped by the new WBA welterweight champion to be his translator when he visited Korea, ABS-CBN reported.

 

Pacquiao was then asked by Vhong Navarro if he understood Bang's translations.

 

“Minsan,” Pacquiao said in laughter. “Minsan sabihin ko na lang sa kaniya, i-English mo na lang.”

 

Bang also didn’t miss the chance to invite Pacquiao to be his special guest for this year's Magpasikat Week. 

 

“Lahat nanalo. Ako ni isang beses hindi pa. Malas [ako]. Pero sana, sama kayo para manalo ako,” Bang told Pacquiao. 

 

The eight division world champion, however, declined the Korean’s request. “Kinabahan ako kasi baka masama ako sa talo,” Pacquiao said in jest. 

 

On the same day later, the Senate formally congratulated Senator Pacquiao for defeating World Boxing Association welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia last July 15.

 

The Senate commendation was expressed through Senate Resolution No. 788, authored by Senate President Vicente Sotto III, in consideration of Senate Resolution No. 789, introduced by Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri, and Senate Resolution 799, which was introduced by Senator Juan Edgardo Angara.

 

According to Sotto, Pacquiao displayed prowess in the boxing ring despite the undisputed record of his younger opponent, who held a total of 39 wins, 36 of which were knockouts.

 

On the other hand, Pacquiao has 59 wins, six losses and two draws.

 

The Filipino ring icon defeated his Argentinian opponent by knocking the latter down three times, which earned him the WBA welterweight crown and his 11th world championship title.

 

"In his entire professional career in international boxing, Sen. Pacquiao was able to capture championship title belts in different weight divisions such as the WBC Flyweight, WBC Super Welterweight, IBF Super Bantamweight, Ring Featherweight, WBC Lightweight, IBO Light Welterweight, WBO Welterweight and WBC Super Featherweight," Sotto said in his resolution.

 

The resolution also noted that aside from boxing, Pacquiao also displayed his leadership in public service, "where he upholds in the highest esteem his constitutional duties as an elected legislator, for productively steering his chaired committees and actively participating in various committee hearings and plenary deliberation."

 

"The astounding feat of Filipino boxing great Sen. Manny Pacquiao over Matthysse, has once again delivered pride, joy and glory to the hearts of the Filipino people cheering in the midst of the economic and political turmoil," Sotto said.

 

For his part, Zubiri said Pacquiao was the only boxer in history, who holds the distinction of having world titles in eight different weight divisions, and the first boxer to win the lineal championship in five different weight classes.

 

"By winning this fight, Pacquiao has once again reminded the world the indomitable spirit of the Filipino. He deserves to be recognized and commended for bringing honor, pride and inspiration to the Filipino people," Zubiri said in his resolution.

 

Meanwhile, Angara said Pacquiao's latest accomplishment “was even more astonishing" given that Matthysse was a younger, taller and heavier fighter with a penchant for stopping bouts early.

 

"Despite the obvious advantages of the Argentinian boxer, it posed no threat to Pacquiao as he put on display his veteran experience. This victory, a testament to the grit, perseverance and indomitable spirit of Pacquiao serves as an inspiration, not just to our country's boxers and athletes, but also to all Filipinos to persevere and work hard for a better future, especially in these trying times," Angara said in his resolution.
