JUST IN: Pacquiao donates WBO welterweight belt to the Senate

Senator Manny Pacquiao donated to the Senate the WBO welterweight belt he won in his boxing match against Jessie Vargas. 

“To manifest my heartfelt thanksgiving, I would like to donate my WBO welterweight belt to the Senate of the Philippines. The honor does not belong to me alone but to every Filipino,” Pacquiao said. 

“May it serve as an inspiration for everyone to pursue excellence and to continue fighting for our nation’s sovereignty,” he added.

Pacquiao made the statement after the Senate adopted a resolution commending the eight-division world champion for defeating Vargas in Las Vegas, Nevada over the weekend.  [source]
