Congressman and boxing icon Manny Pacquiao disappointed fans who had been waiting for him to grace the opening of the Palarong Bicol 2014 in Catanduanes this morning.

Allegedly, Pacquiao had been invited by Catanduanes Rep. Cesar Sarmiento, who is said to be a good friend of the boxing champion.

Pacquiao, however, supposedly could not make it to the said opening event because of an urgent meeting in the United States regarding his upcoming fight with Timothy Bradley.

It was reported that there was a long line of spectators at the opening program’s venue.


Said fans were dismayed, however, when an announcement that Pacquiao would not be attending the rites was made.
