Pacquiao avoids talking politics, focuses on Hatton fight

MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao had a busy Thursday schedule, making sure that he finished all his commitments before leaving the country to begin the promo tour for his upcoming fight against British boxer Ricky Hatton.

From morning until late in the afternoon, Pacquiao shot his latest commercial for Nike then held a press conference at the New World Hotel in Makati where he pleaded for the holding of a clean and honest election in 2010.

Asked if he’s going to seek public office again, Pacquiao neither confirmed it nor denied.
“Pag-usapan muna natin ‘yung coming fight ko kasi mas malapit na ito kaysa sa election, e next year pa naman ito. Yung fight ko three months na lang (Let’s talk about my coming fight since it is much nearer than next year’s election. My fight is three months away)."

“Malapit na ‘yung laban ko kay Hatton kaya mas focus ako dito (My fight against Hatton is near so I am focused with it right now)," added Pacquiao, who was joined in the mini-press conference by election lawyer and close friend Atty. Romulo Macalintal.

Pacquiao ran for a seat in the House of Representatives in the first district of South Cotabato and General Santos City, but lost badly against incumbent Darlene Antonino-Custodio.

On Hatton, Pacquiao briefly said he respects the former world light welterweight and welterweight champion whom he added is a great fighter. “Si Hatton magaling na boksingero at malakas, kaya hindi natin puwedeng i-underestimate (You can not underestimate Hatton. He is a great and strong boxer)."

“Dalawang buwan akong magte-training (I would train for two months) and I think that is enough to prepare myself against him," Pacquiao added

Late Thursday night, a sendoff party for Pacquiao was held at the posh Shangrila Hotel in Makati. – GMANews.TV
