MANILA, Philippines—Manny Pacquiao and wife Jinkee arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport early Wednesday via Philippine Airlines flight 103 from Los Angeles, California, following the boxing superstar’s second defeat for the year.

The couple intended to arrive Wednesday for the birthday of their son, Michael.

Pacquiao fell to a sixth-round loss to archnemesis Juan Manuel Marquez in their fourth encounter last Sunday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Despite the loss, Pacquiao said he was satisfied he was able to give the fans an explosive fight.

“We will rise again,” Pacquiao said in his arrival speech.

On Dec. 17, Pacquiao will turn 34 and celebrations are scheduled in General Santos City and Sarangani province, where he’s running unopposed for a second term as congressman.

    nakakatawa nga yung sinasabi nung isang pastor na nang maging christian kuno daw si paqsiw e di na ito nambabae at nagsugal! e nasa tao naman talaga pagbabago. kahit na ano relihiyon mo, katoliko, protestante, iglesia kung ayaw mo talaga mambabae o magsugal di mo gagawin yun!

       true that is not on religion. kung ‘ayaw’ mo talaga mambabae, di mo gagawin yun. pero natututunan din ang pag-ayaw and people cannot claim full credit on that since we are influenced by everything around us. quitting also depends on the kind of people you are with. kaya nga may word na ‘hawa’ di ba. decisions are made by yourself. How you arrive at the decision also is another story.

    if paquiao is really a changed man, him and this pastor soriano should have decided long ago to abandon boxing. the trouble is, they both are using each other. soriano milking paquiao and paquiao trying to get more media mileage to hid his vices and erroneous ways.

    ba’t umuwi pa itong paksiw na ito?! pati si justin bieber pinagtawanan si manny paksiw. angyabang kasi! bible bible study pa gabi gabi, nauto ni pastor soriano! buti nga at na knock out ni marquez!


      alam mo ba ang sinasabi mo? natalo si Manny dahil sa sobrang kumpiansa hindi dahil nagpalit ng relihiyon….nung ma-knockout siya ni torrecampo ano ang relihiyon niya? Sasabihin mo ba na kaya nangyari iyon ay dahil sa relihiyon? Hindi ba dahil sa kumpiansa, sa sobrang pagtitiwala? Matapos ilagay ni Manny sa mapa ang Pilipinas at bigyan tayo ng karangalan ay tinatawag mo siya ngayon na PAKSIW. Shame on you…Matuto ka ng pagtanaw ng utang na loob….mag-aral ka kay Buboy.
      Sa muling pagbangon ni Manny kasama niya ang buong Pilipinas, maliban sa iyo at sa marami pang gaya mo. Wala kang puso..puro ka nguso!!!!!!

    Place the blame on PASTOR JERIC SORIANO, the guy that brainwashed manny into not doing the sign of the cross and wearing a rosary before entering the ring. This guy is nothing but a smooth talker and responsible for pacquiaos downfall. Why would he tell him to stop doing those routines (rosary and sign of the cross) when it’s what got him to the top. His strong catholic faith and humble beginnings. Why try to fix something that isnt broken? These are the type of people that go after people that are going through a hard time in life. And the ones brainwashed always say the same thing, “u know i was going through a hard time in life, then i found the bible and now im happy” i feel sorry for those brainwashed idiots. Dont they realize they sound weak and stupid when they say that???? i hope karma hits this pastor harder than the marquez punch.

      SORRY JAMES, for you’re still blind to understand the Holy Word of God – The Bible. i know you believe & have faith in God. but you’ve started in a very wrong foot to step in knowing God. please try to start reading the Bible & to pray to God to give you wisdom to  know HIS Words. stop blaming others everytime you encountered problems or crisis in life. conversion of manny into born again christian was not the work of Pastor Jeric Soriano, it was the work of the Holy Spirit, through believing in Christ Jesus.

        I do read the bible and was born a catholic and die a catholic. Im strong enough to not fall for these ‘stalker pastors’.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/GX2VB2JC2OJMIKTNARPG5S2OCQ james

        And manny always believed in Jesus. Its just these stalker pastors are giving him the wrong information about thr bible. They dont care about manny but his money, FACT

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/GX2VB2JC2OJMIKTNARPG5S2OCQ james

        If these demonyo pastors are true to their word then they shouldnt ask for a single centavo from Pacquiao. Lets wait and see what happens and if the stalker pastors prove me wrong….. Doubt it

      James, i’m sorry but you really don’t know what you’re talking about…when Manny lost by knockout to Torrecampo what was his religion? So pls. stop blaming religion….
