Manny Pacquaio React To Kenneth Egano’s Death

KENNETH EGANO DEAD – Boxing Legend Manny Pacquiao reacted to Kenneth Egano’s death.

The 22-year-old boxer named Kenneth Egano defeated Jason Facularin in an eight-round fight in Cavite, Philippines. However, he was unable to hear his name announced as the winner.

Before the ring announcer could announce the result, Egano passed out in the ring and had to be helped out of the arena. When it was finally revealed that he had won the match, he was already being taken to the hospital, where a brain hemorrhage later caused him to fall into a coma.

According to reports, Manny Pacquiao instructed his staff to ensure that Kenneth Egano had all the necessary medical care. “There is nothing more precious than human life,” he said when agreeing to pay for Egano’s medical bills.

“Boxing is truly a dangerous sport and the boxers deserve nothing but respect as they put their lives on the line. Other sports you play, but you don’t play boxing,” he added.
