Leonardia invited to Pacquiao‐Broner fight
Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia received an invitation from Senator Manny Pacquiao to join him during his World Boxing Association welterweight title fight next weekend against Adrien Broner in Las Vegas, Nevada in the United States.
The mayor was requested to carry the Philippine flag ahead of the fight.
“My inspiration to do my best comes when I can feel the support of my fellow Filipinos and especially my family and friends,” the senator wrote.
In an interview with Leonardia last Tuesday, he revealed senatorial candidate, former Philippine National Police Director-General Ronald ‘Bato’ dela Rosa, would also be part of Pacquiao’s entourage and would be carrying the boxer’s title belt.
