Fresh from his latest win against former WBA welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse in Malaysia, Pacquiao as well gave warm acknowledgement to the local government for rescheduling the affair’s finale, to enable him to be the guest of honor and keynote speaker in the most awaited yearly event.
“No matter where I travel and what I could accomplish, I will always look at Malungon as my home,” said the Senator who looked at the place as his strongest bailiwick ever, even during the time that he was not yet a Congressman of Sarangani.

A voiced compliment that was answered well by the local government who have ever since looked at the Senator as a most reliable official that have had dedicated almost all, for the good of not only fellow Sarangans, but the entire Filipino nation.
