TUNYING WITH ZARDO MEJIA, PACQUIAO’S UNCLE WHO FIRST GAVE THE CHAMP HIS OWN BOXING GLOVES

First to buy him a pair of boxing gloves is Manny’s uncle, Zardo Mejia who would later guide him during his initial amateur bouts. Zardo has wisely kept Manny’s first boxing gloves. “Importante sa akin ito kasi may sentimental value ito kasi ito ang unang gloves na binili ko na ginamit ni Manny. Hindi ko akalain na siya ay magiging sobrang sikat na at saka naging congressman pa,” Zardo says while showing his prized items.

Kuya Tunying also interviewed this author’s nephew, Michael Bren Manansala Evangelio, Manny’s congressional chief-of-staff, about the boxing champion’s work ethic, and  Manny’s spiritual counsel Pastor Jeric Soriano about Manny’s big spiritual transformation.

Watch “Tapatan ni Tunying” tomorrow (May 1), 4:30 PM on ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Gold. For updates, follow the programs social media accounts www.Twitter.com/TNTunying, www.Instagram.com/TNTunying, and www.facebook.com/TNTunying.
