My dad is a boxing aficionado. Boxing's the only sport he watches. We are a family who roots for Pacquiao. His loss yesterday felt so tragic that I wanted to cry.
This is all I have to say:
You are a champion and will always be one. In this day and age when people get to where they are by sucking up, by putting forth mediocre wok, by taking short cuts and by being ungrateful to the people who helped them in the first place, you simply did it by showing sheer perseverance, hard work and heart.
I am proud. I will always be!
