Heaven Peralejo nervously cheers for boyfriend during his match against Lucas Carson.
Jimuel Pacquiao beat his schoolmate Lucas Carson in a boxing rematch on Saturday, April 27. In a video posted by ABS-CBN News reporter Dyan Castillejo, Jimuel could be seen having an intense boxing match versus his opponent.
Heaven Peralejo, Jimuel's girlfriend, was present during the match and nervously cheered for the young Pacquiao ringside as shown in Dyan's Twitter video.
It can be recalled that boxing champion Manny Pacquiao revealed that his son Jimuel wants to follow in his footsteps as a boxer. Pacman remarked that he and wife Jinkee actually didn't want their son to do the sport but Jimuel insisted that it is his passion.
"I said to him that boxing is tough, that training is tough, everything is tough. But he said, 'daddy, boxing is my passion'," Manny said in an interview with Rappler.
Meanwhile, Jinkee admitted that she could not help but be emotional over the decision of her son.
In an Instagram post this month, Jinkee admitted that she was emotional while watching her son train for boxing.
"Gatan-aw ko nila pero kahilakon nako kaayo. 😔😢Ang akong anak gusto gyud mag-boxing! Ang amahan niingon intawon nga 'Babe, naa na gyud tay boxer" dili man gyud papugong!( I am watching them but I am already about to cry. My son really wants to do boxing. The dad said, 'Babe, we already have a boxer." We could not stop him.) Oh, Lord, Your Will be done in my son's life! I know he can do all things through You who strengthens him. 🙏❤️ To God be all the glory!," she stated.
