Sen. Nancy Binay congratulated Representative Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao of Sarangani for his victory against American Chris Algieri.
“Again he showed us why he ranks among the best boxers in the world,” she said in a statement on Sunday, November 23.

“Manny, saludo kami sa panibago mong tagumpay….isa kang inspirasyon sa ating mga kababayan. Patunay ka na kahit anumang pagsubok ang harapin, ito’y mapagtatagumpayan sa tulong ng pagtitiyaga; dedikasyon; at pananalig at pagtitiwala sa sariling kakayahan at sa Maykapal,”she added.
