MANILA, Philippines—“Don’t worry, we will rise again.”

Those were Manny Pacquiao’s words when he returned to the Philippines on Wednesday from his fight with Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas, Nevada last Sunday.

“Babangon tayo ulit [We will rise again],” he repeated during a televised press conference at the airport.

Pacquiao said he would not retire yet from boxing even after his stunning defeat to Marquez.

“Yes lalaban ulit ako. Hindi pa naman tapos ang laban [I will fight again. The fight is not yet over],” he said.

“Hindi pa ako magreretiro [I will not retire yet],” he added.

Vice President Jejomar Binay and several congressmen were among those who welcomed Pacquiao at the airport.

Pacquiao said he will rest for five months before going back to the ring.

Government officials and fans carrying signs that read “you’re still our greatest champion and hero” welcomed Pacquiao and his wife Jinkee at the airport.

Pacquiao, who was knocked out by Mexico’s Marquez in the sixth round last weekend in Las Vegas, is scheduled to attend a concert for his fans later in the day. With a report from AP

    Manny, I heard the news that you’re going to Israel for the Christmas break. Please visit some Messianic churches there. I hope the meeting of Gentiles and Messianic Christians will bring more blessings to you and your family. What a wonderful sight to the eyes of God. Prophetic verses now being fulfilled.  I think this is the key to ‘we will rise again’ that you are saying.

    “Pacquiao: We will rise again”

    sabi ni Lord: “Apart from me you can do nothing”

    Manny, magbalik loob ka na sa Dyos… iwanan mo na ang kultong born again… pera lang habol nila sayo..

    Mukhang hindi pa magreretiro si PacMan sa boxing. Ikaw ba naman, 8-division world champion ka, papayag ka na ang huling laban mo eh hindi ka lang basta natalo, umembang kapa sa lona? Iba ang mentality ng mga boksingero, palaban hanggat kaya pa-just how it’s supposed to be.

    ~But then I hope Manny will finally quit boxing. Everytime na nakikita ko ang pagmumukha ni Arum sa TV gusto kong suntukin yung screen.

      • cruel168

Una, pumasok sa pulitika, pangalawa nag showbiz, pangatlo nag born again christsham, what is next? for senator? sige iboto nyo at ng pagtawanan kayo ng buong mundo! hahahaha, trntdo ka 

      • AlzheimersC

        Manny is a great entertainer at may puso sa masa kaya siya ibinoto ng masa…so sa haba ng kaligayahan na naibigay, isang paraan ito as payback sa lahat ng naibigay nya…

        So wala kang malasakit kasi anak ka ng mexicano mas matutuwa ka pang matalo si Pacquiao.

        May nangengganyo sa kanya para pumasok sa politika at showbiz…ikaw hindi ka pwede kasi wala kang K…tarantado ka kasi

        Itinakwil ko na pagiging pilipino ko bugok! nakakahiya maging pilipino kasi mga bobo kayo! Kaya wala ng pupuntahan ang pilipinas dahil sa mga katulad mo.Mang-mang at isip primitibo baboy.

      • gilrene

        sa tingin ko hindi mo pa tinakwil pagka Pilipino mo dahil tagalog pa rin message mo. Peace!

      • marlon aclan

         Putang ina mo.. Ikaw cguro yung baboy nanapak ng traffic enforcer ano?? Wala kang good manners eh.. Baboy..

      • cruel168

        Putang ina mo rin marlon aclan! bakit nakikialam ka sa usapan namin!

    what comes up must come down. pareho ng pag natulog ka gigising ka ulit. si manny natulog at gumising na. pero ngayon hindi hindi na s’ya matutulog dahil walang tulugan sa bible study.
    kaya sabi ni aling dionisia: “pesteng yawang mga pastor!!”

  • poltergeist_fuhrer

    pacquiao is going down

    the ship is now sinking…

    mauuna bang tatalon ang mga pastor…

    • bugabee

      sigurado. ganyan ang mga daga.

      • poltergeist_fuhrer

        haha…linta na naging daga

  • melbourne333

    Hindi pa natutuyo ang pintura at heto na naman si Bob Arum. Big fight ang number five.
    Mabuti pa siya. Kumikita pero walang suntok na nararamdaman. Siguro maganda pasok sa
    takilya at walang puknat ang promotion. Pati mga sports writers sa amerika. Parang mga palakang kukak. Tayo din naging mga boxing analyst na din. Lalong tumapang noong natalo.
    Ganyan ang pinoy lalong bumabangis!
