Happy Birthday, America this 4th of July 2019!!!
Philippine Senator and WBA world welterweight Champion Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao shares a light moment at the Wild Card boxing gym in Hollywood, California.
Filipino and American fight fans, surely, appreciate his efforts in singing the national anthem of the United States of America.
“I will legally light firecrackers tonight and celebrate with friends and family. However, I am reserving the fireworks for July 20th against Keith Thurman in Las Vegas,” the good Senator from the Philippines intimated with a handful of friends and reporters at Freddie Roach’s gym.
