Knocked-Out Pacquiao Shocked Fans in Talakag
Bukidnon 1st District Congressman Jess Paras and his wife didn’t disappoint the Talakagnons when he and his caravan comprising a giant TV screen, complete with a generator managed to cross the temporary bridge at Ugiaban and arrived Talakag this morning intent on showing (via satellite) the rematch between Manny Pacquaio and Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas.
Shocked fans witnessed Pacquiao as he got knocked-out by Marquez on the 6th Round. It may have been a disappointing result for the fans here in Talakag but nonetheless they were grateful for Congressman Paras’ generosity.For them, the show was still a welcomed diversion (even if just for the day) from the recent crisis and inconveniences brought about by Typhoon Pablo.
