The tension is high between Pacquiao and Mayweather. Today (Apr. 13), Pacquiao took to a nationalistic approach to reveal how he’s preparing for the fight, with a self-directed video tribute to his Pinoy people in the Philippines. “Lalaban Ako Para Sa Filipino,” translating to “I Am Going to Fight for Filipinos,” is the fighter’s display of his humanitarian side and his devotion to his people.
In the (somewhat hilarious) video, Pac-man sings his heart out over an uplifting, but painfully slow, instrumental. The electric guitar and subtle flute tempering the silent video clips are also pretty laughable. We do love what Manny is doing, though.
We hope to see how this song works out for him come May 2nd. Maybe he’ll perform it for the crowd before the fight. – Olivia Jade Khoury
