Aquino elated over Pacquiao victory

Liberal Party standard bearer Benigno Simeon "Noynoy" Aquino III was elated over the victory of Manny Pacquiao over Joshua Clottey in Arlington, Texas, last Sunday, saying that the pound-for-pound king is one of many reasons why Filipinos all around the world are proud of their heritage.

"Binabati ko po si Manny Pacquiao sa kanyang muling ipinamalas na kakayahan at tagumpay," said Aquino. "Isa itong malaking karangalan sa ating bansa. Patunay ito na kayang-kaya ng Pilipinong makipagsapalaran, magtagumpay at makilala sa buong mundo."

"It doesn't matter what color of t-shirt he chooses to wear outside of the ring," Aquino added. "When he is in the ring doing what he does best, the colors I see are red, blue, white, and yellow. He should be an inspiration to all of us."
