Pacquiao’s victory inspires
boxers seeking title defense

The latest success of world champion Manny Pacquiao over Adrien Broner in their “Return to Vegas” title fight last Sunday provides inspiration to Filipino boxers to train longer, work harder, and fight better to achieve their dreams of bringing honor to the country.

World Boxing Council (WBC) Asia super featherweight titlist Al “The Rock” Toyogon and World Boxing Association (WBA) Asia bantamweight champion Carl Jammes “Wonder Boy” Martin said they will do their best like Pacquiao in their coming title fights against highly-rated foreign opponents.

The two young but talented Filipino fighters made the assurance during their appearance in the 7th “Usapang Sports” presented by the Tabloid Organization in Philippine Sports (TOPS) at the National Press Club in Intramuros on Thursday.
