COTABATO CITY, Philippines – Minutes after his idol lost in his fight, an ailing fan of Manny Pacquiao died of heart attack, Sunday, his relatives said.

Henry Macion, chairman of Barangay Rosary Heights 4, said Bienvenido Perez, 59, suffered a heart attack and died before reaching the hospital minutes after Pacquiao lost to American challenger Timothy Bradley in a split decision.

Macion said when the ring announcer revealed the results, everybody was dismayed and they noticed Perez gasping for breath.

“He was so disappointed with his idol’s loss,” he said.

“He has a heart problem but the boxing result worsened his situation,” Macion said, adding that his last words was “gitikasan si Manny (Manny was cheated).”

During the Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez fight, Perez, then already nursing a heart problem, was overjoyed when his idol won the fight.

“He was so happy then when Pacquiao won over Marquez, now he was so disappointed and thus the heart attack,” Macion said.

    Bob is to blame. To Bradley, yeah right, as you were saying before this rigged bout, you shocked the world big time, so this is it a rigged one ha? – So shocking indeed that even killed a fan for disbelief. If you still have even a bit conscience, return the belt so Manny will pray that you’ll be forgiven! RIP Mang Bienvenido.

    Wala ba siyang maintenance medicine? dapat may naka redi siyang nitroglycerine or isordil sublingual ung nilalagay under the tongue during heart attack,. It will open his blood vessels so that his blood can flow smoothly. Clopidogrel to prevent blood clot,  captopril and metoprolol to lower his blood pressure.
