MANILA, Philippines - Dionesia Pacquiao cried in anguish after watching her son’s heartbreaking loss to Mexican fighter Juan Manuel Marquez.

Immediately after seeing her son knocked out, Mommy D – as she is called – pleaded that he already stop from the sport that brought them out of poverty. Manny’s sister, Lisa, also asked that he retire from boxing.

Even the people of General Santos City, from where the boxing icon hails, could not believe what they saw.

Immediately after Pacquiao was knocked out in the sixth round, they began leaving the stadium and only a deafening silence can be heard. – from a report by Jay Dayupay, dzMM
