With the November 14, 2009 MGM Grand Las Vegas fight between Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto drawing near, do you think Pacman will now acknowledge the Municipality of Kibawe as his birthplace? I remember that he carried Kibawe in his fights several years ago. Do you think he’ll do the same on November or will he now bring Sarangani (or perhaps General Santos City)? Pacquiao, after all, has signified his plans to run as congressman of Sarangani Province in next year’s national elections.
Also, I remember writing a newspaper article years ago about Manny Pacquiao being born in Kibawe, Bukidnon. So now I’m curious…do the people of Kibawe “feel bad” that Manny is now more “recognized” as a son of GenSan? Or do they still feel happy for Manny’s success in the field of boxing?
What do you think?
