Pacquiao’s Hero’s Welcome all set!

Barring any unforeseen circumstance, 8-Division World Boxing Champion and Sarangani Province Congressman Manny Pacquiao who just defended his World Welterweight title against Shane Mosley is set to arrive tomorrow afternoon, May 15th via a chartered plane from Manila to another hero’s welcome at the General Santos City International Airport.

The office of City Mayor Darlene Antonino Custodio has confirmed to newsmen that instead of the original schedule of his arrival in the morning via PAL, he will be flying in later during the day since he is still set to guest at GMA-7′s Sunday variety noontime show, Party Pilipinas. The bigwigs of GMA will provide him with a private plane.

Just like his last year’s homecoming after his victorious fight against Miguel Cotto, Mayor Custodio will be meeting him at the tarmac of the aiport once it has landed.

Then both will be riding the same float that Ms. Pilipinas-Universe and another general, Shamcey Supsup rode during her motorcade last April 2011.

The route for the motorcade which will start hopefully by 4:30pm is this:  Airport Road (Fatima Highway) – Calumpang Highway – Labangal – Silway – Pedro Acharon Boulevard – Santiago Boulevard – Jose Catolico Avenue – Robinsons Place.

At Robinsons Place, international recording artist Manny Pacquiao will transfer to a private car.  He will then be whisked off to the Sarangani Capitol where a short program awaits him.

Later in the evening, the world’s #1 pound-for-pound boxer will grace the 62nd Birthday Party of his mom, Dionisia Pacquiao at his sparklingly new P30million Pacquiao Gymnasium at Barangay Tambler.

Welcome Home Champ!!! Hope to see more of you in these parts.

    US$30million Pacquiao Gymnasium at Barangay Tambler, is this amount correct? @ a currect exchange rate mahigit 1 bilyong piso ang budget for a gymnasium?

    Sir, I hope you can Enlighten us on the progress of the renovation of our International Airport premises @ a cost of 100M budget? Perhaps our lovely Mayor can do something na maging presentable naman ang airport especially nowadays na were having alot of visitors from other parts of the globe.
