    Pacquiao’s House colleagues want next fight in Manila

    Pacquiao’s House colleagues want next fight in Manila

    Several congressmen in the House of Representatives are urging Saranggani Rep. Manny Pacquiao to hold his next fight live in Manila.
    The lawmakers’ appeal was apparently in reaction to the reported claim of Michael Koncz, Pacquiao’s adviser, that the Filipino boxing icon prefers his next fight outside the US with China’s gambling resort, Macau as a primary choice.
    Fight promoter Bob Arum reportedly agreed with Koncz as he noted that the US would impose hefty tax on the Filipino champ’s possible $25 million earning. Aside from Macau, holding the fight in Singapore could give Pacquiao a bigger share of the purse.
    Pacquiao is running for re-election as Saranggani province congressman. He is reportedly amenable to fight before his adoring fans in the Philippines.
