Pacquiao, who enjoys a pleasant vacation with his family, is said to be very happy during his first visit to our country where he is an idol and where he and his family have been showered with hospitality.


 
"It's my first time in Mexico and although I have to leave, I eager to return and enjoy Mexico, its places and its people are the best," Pacquiao said wearing the jersey of the Mexican national soccer team.


 
Nayarit Governor stressed that the beauty of the beaches in Nayarit Rieves have aroused worldwide interest from great stars like Manny, who was recognized as a distinguished guest.


 
The promoter Fernando Beltran said there are joint plans to have Manny on board doing shows in Mexico and the Philippines, testing the talents of both countries.


 
Manny will return home this week to make everything ready to take his political post in his native Philippines Sarangani and take a prominent political career.

"I'm happy to be first in Mexico, a great country full of culture and beautiful traditions is an honor to be here and accept an invitation from my friend and partner Fernando Beltran and received by the Governor Gonzalez and Tourism Minister Nayarit, we're happy my family and me" said Pacquiao.

In a press conference organized by the Government of Nayarit and Zanfer, Pacquiao said he wants the fight against Floyd Mayweather in November.

And everything is in the hands of its promoter Bob Arum, president of Top Rank.

"Mr. Arum is my promoter and he will do everything to ensure that the [Mayweather] fight is done. For me I have no problem whatsoever. Arum says we will be ready to fight in November," said the best fighter, pound for pound.

Wearing the jersey of the Mexican soccer, Pacquiao said he is sure that the Mexican team will play a big role in the World Cup that starts this Friday.

"My favorite team is Mexico, and I will be cheering. Mexico is like my second country, the Mexican fans have always supported me in my great battles and the least that I can do is thank them and support Mexico," said Pacquiao
