Don't Blow Up 'Child Support' Issue, Appeals Pe?alosa

Newly-crowned World Boxing Organization (WBO) bantamweight champion Gerry 'Fearless' Pe?alosa has appealed to all the concerned parties not to blow up the 'child support' issue thrown at him from a previous marriage.
Pe?alosa made this request after his daughter from his first wife, in an interview with local radio station dyAB Abante Bisaya recently, aired his gripes regarding his failure to provide them the necessary financial assistance.
Pe?alosa said he loved his children so much that he would never turn his back away from them.
"Mahal ko yung mga anak ko eh. Dahil baga yung pagsisikap ko, yung mga paghihirap ko, para ho sa kanila. Kaya sana po tigilan na po yung mga nagpapalaki nga isyu dahil nasisira po yung mga bata," said Pe?alosa when interviewed by Dyan Castillejo of > ABS-CBN.
Pe?alosa said he kept on boxing despite his age because of his children and that he shared with them parcel of his earnings from his fights.
"Ang makaya kung gawin ay talagang ginagawa ko para sa kanila. Yung pagboboksing ko, nagiging inspirasyon ko sila," said Pe?alosa.
When pressed by Castillejo if what he gave is sufficient enough for the needs of his children, Pe?alosa answered: "Di ko alam kung sabihin nila nagkukulang po ako pero ginagawa ko yung lahat ng makakaya ko dahil mahal ko talaga sila."
Pe?alosa hopes and pray this issue will be stopped because his children are in the losing end here, even as he vowed to do everything to provide a better and decent living for his children.
"Sana mahinto na po itong issue ng child support dahil wala, ang ending nito walang mananalo. Kawawa po yung bata. Mahal ko po sila. Hindi ko po sila pababayaan. Yung lahat ng mga anak ko, talagang mahal ko po sila. Inspirasyon ko po sila," said Pe?alosa.
