Newly crowned WBA regular welterweight champion Senator Manny Pacquiao fought Lucas Matthysse with a congenital heart condition. Despite being diagnosed with the heart condition one week before the bout, the fighting senator put his life on the line and captured the crown from Matthysse.
In a report by Chino Trinidad on DZBB 594, Manny experienced difficulty in breathing and underwent an angiogram procedure. This new development put Pacquiao’s fighting career in question if the senator will still be allowed to climb the ring and fight again.
