MANILA -- Malacanang is anticipating another zero crime rate on Sunday as pound-for-pound Filipino fighter Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao battles with African boxer Joshua Clottey.
Chief Presidential spokesperson Ricardo Saludo, in radio interview Saturday, said they are positive that the usual byproduct of Pacquiao’s boxing match will again prevail in the entire country.
“Tomorrow (Sunday), crimes, violence, and conflicts in the country will stop during the fight of (Manny) Pacquiao and (Joshua) Clottey,” Saludo said.
During the previous fights of Pacquiao, very low crime or no crime at all was recorded by the Philippine National Police.
Road traffic was also reduced as most people preferred to stay home, avail pay-per-view, or join free viewing offered by some government officials and offices.
