Jinkee Pacquiao took to Instagram to immediately congratulate her husband, Senator Manny Pacquiao, for his victory against Jessie Vargas, making him the first active senator to win a world boxing championship.

Posting a photo of them right after the fight, Jinkee lauded her husband and said that his win is an answered prayer.

“Congratulations my babe! God is good always. I thank the Lord for an answered prayer, for granting us the victory. Indeed, we are victorious through Him who loved us! I love you. I joice with you. God is awesome,” she wrote.

In another post, Jinkee thanked everyone who cheered for her husband, especially Filipinos across the globe.

“Salamat sa lahat ng suporta ninyo, pagmamahal, at lalong lalo na sa dasal ninyong lahat mga kababayan! To God be all the glory,” she said.

On Sunday (Manila time), the 37-year-old Pacquiao overpowered the younger Jessie Vargas in 12 rounds. 

He showed off his still remarkable speed and accuracy and flashed his punching power in front of a sellout crowd at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
