Watchmen Daily Journal - - SPORTS - By Do­minique Gabriel G. Bañaga

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.
