MANILA, Philippines – Venues in typhoon-battered Tacloban City are being readied for the free screening of the boxing match between Filipino Manny Pacquiao and Mexican-American Brandon Rios.

“We would like to announce that live streaming of the match on Sunday is now being set up in the airport, city hall and the astrodome in Tacloban for the residents there,” National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council executive director Eduardo del Rosario said on Friday.

The live streaming is seen to boost the morale of the residents of the Tacloban, one of the areas devastated by Supertyphoon “Yolanda” (international name Haiyan).
