World boxing champ Manny Pacquiao is motivated to win after Pia’s success in the Miss Universe pageant.
After Philippines’ representative Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach won the crown as Miss Universe 2015 last December 21, netizens remembered her prophetic tweet when world boxing champ Manny Pacquiao lost to Floyd Mayweather last May 2.
Now that Pia has fulfilled her promise, Manny shared in an interview with Philboxing.com’s Eddie Alinea that he is motivated by Pia’s win and he will also use that as an inspiration on his next fight this April 2016.
“Courage is grace under pressure. This is what Pia showed in the middle of the confusion and controversy that marked her coronation as the new Miss Universe, remember when I lost to Floyd last May, she made a promise to all of us Filipinos that she will avenge that defeat come the Miss Universe pageant which she just fulfilled,” Manny said.
He then said that he would dedicate his next fight to Pia and to the Filipinos.
"Ipinangako niya yun at tinupad niya. Ang masabi ko lang ay tatandaan ko ang mga yun which I intend to use as an inspiration and additional motivation for me in my next fight, kung kaya nga't ipinangangako ko rin sa kanya na iniaalay ko sa kanya at sa mga kababayan natin ang susunod kong laban at pipilitin ko ring ipanalo alang-alang sa bayan,” Manny remarked.
