“Sumali ako dahil gusto kong disiplinahin ‘yong mga tao. Pagdating sa korapsyon, gusto kong sugpuin ‘yong korapsyon and then gusto kong umunland ‘yong bansa namin,” he said .
Host and comedian Kim Yongchul then asked the boxing legend if he has any plans to run again. Pacquiao replied, “Mayroon pa rin. Nandiyan ‘yong passion kong makatulong sa tao.”
