Senator Manny Pacquiao, who is a boxer, said that he is not afraid to die while defending and serving his country amidst the coronavirus outbreak.
Pacman, who is the only 8 division champion in boxing, entered the political arena in 2010 and is currently a senator in the Philippines.
Pacman made his huge fortune and name as a fighter, where he is considered by many as the best fighter of our generation.
Explaining his will to sacrifice himself for his country, he said, “If you are a leader, you have to be a front-liner. You have to lead people and let people see that you are with them. I grew up poor. I know what they feel.”
