Photos: Pacquiao Victory Celebrated By The Philippines

MANILA - The Philippines united in celebration on Sunday as its boxing hero Manny Pacquiao cemented his comeback by avenging his 2012 loss to American Timothy Bradley to regain the World Boxing Organization welterweight world title.

Crowds watching the fight, which was broadcast live from Las Vegas in several parks, squares and public stadiums around the archipelago, erupted in cheers as Pacquiao was declared winner in a unanimous 12-round decision.

"The people of the nation are united in cheering on the victory of the nation's fist, Congressman Manny Pacquiao. He is the symbol of the excellence of the Filipino in all endeavours," said President Benigno Aquino's spokesman Herminio Coloma shortly after the victory.

He said Pacquiao's latest victory was symbolic of the way Filipinos can recover from the worst disasters, an apparent reference to Super Typhoon Haiyan and the earthquake that struck the country last year, killing thousands.
