The Philippines rejoiced Sunday at the victory of boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao over his Mexican opponent in Texas, with even political rivals promising him a "hero's welcome" upon his return.
The fight was aired live on giant television screens in various parts of the country, including the southern city of General Santos where Pacquiao is using his boxing fame to run for a congressional seat.
Manny Pacquiao unleashed a lethal right-left combination punch to knock out the erstwhile unbeaten Jorge Solis of Mexico in Round 8 and defend his World Boxing Council International superfeatherweight crown at the Aladome, San Antonio, Texas.
He stepped up his aggressive attack in the seventh and sent his Mexican opponent down at 1:16 in the eighth, when referee Vic Drakulich counted Solis out.
