The People's Champ Manny Pacquiao has graciously accepted defeat against Darlene Antonino-Custodio in the last elections. Some say he was too confident as the people around him kept saying that there's no way he can lose. If there's anything valuable in this experience, it was for Pacquiao to ultimately realize who his friends are and who are there to merely take advantage of his resources. It is still uncertain whether he will pursue legal action against those who abused his resources then. Efforts are also being pursued to patch up the relationship turned sour between Pacquiao and ABS-CBN.
Concerned friends are encouraging Pacquiao to get out of the country for now, stay away from discussing his political defeat, and re-focus himself to boxing and prepare for his October fight. On June 8, Manny Pacquiao is also about to receive his fighter of the year award.
