Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla asks: Boxing or Cooking Show?

Jul 3, 2017 @ 11:08

Senator Manny Pacquiao’s comeback on the boxing ring was highly anticipated by the Filipinos–citizens and Politikos alike. This is why many were disappointed when the People’s Champ failed to defend his title, despite the great performance he gave.

One of the frustrated Pinoys is Bacoor City Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla, who claimed the fight was determined by other factors rather than punches and jabs alone. On her Twitter account, the Politiko wrote: “Luto…#PacquiaoHorn Manny Should have won…”

Many supporters have agreed. She also retweeted a post by Sports Illustrated, featuring a piece from Teddy Atlas, a boxing trainer and professional commentator, who believes Pacquiao should have won. Mayor Lani also reposted a tweet from the account named A Windy City, showing an interview of Stephen A. Smith, calling out the judges of the Pacquiao/Horn fight.

The Politiko must’ve been this frustrated, as she let out another thought out loud, tweeting a plausible conspiracy theory. “Look at this picture.It seems this is the reason why the tape in Horn’s gloves get loose. To scratch Manny Pacqiao’ s face.”

We are all Mayor Lani right now.
