She regretted, though that her husband Richard Gutierrez was not present to accompany her, their children and her in-laws as he was taping his action eries “The Iron Heart”.

Together with Lahbati to watch Pacquiao’s match in South Korea was her son Zion. “It was so exciting. I was so happy that Pacquiao won. So, now I’ll always gonna watch his fights,” he said.

Just as excited as Lahbati was Arci Munoz, who said it was her second time to watch the Pambansang Kamao fight.

“I saw him during his last fight in (Las) Vegas. But I’m excited because it’s my first time to see him in an exhibition fight,” she said in the video.

Meanwhile, veteran actor Eddie Gutierrez expressed admiration towards the actor-politician-boxer.

“You know, there are two idols in my life. One is Elvis Presley and the other one is Manny Pacquiao. Manny Pacquiao has brought prestige to our country that’s why I love him,” Gutierrez said.

Young actress Francine Diaz who watched Pacquiao fight live for the first time said, “Kanina sinabi ko na iba po ‘yung feeling na face to face kong makita and sobrang nakaka-proud po pala. Nakaka-happy na natsi-cheer ko po siya in person kasi dati laging sa TV lang, eh.” (A while ago I said that it’s a different feeling to see him face to face and it makes you so proud. It is a happy experience to cheer for him in person because I was then watching him on television only.)

Other celebrities who joined the Pacquiao entourage was Anabelle Rama, wife of Eddie Gutierrez, who is also a boxing afficionado. EDV
