Sen. Manny Pacquiao went home with twin victories last Sunday (July 21) when he clinched the WBA world welterweight division title and his fight became the most-watched program during the entire weekend with a national TV rating of 34.8% based on data from Kantar Media, covering both urban and rural areas.
The “Fighting Senator,” who now has a record of 62 wins, 7 losses, and 2 draws with 39 knockouts, did not disappoint his supporters and countrymen, who were able to catch the fight exclusively on ABS-CBN platforms. Apart from its telecast on Channel 2, “Pacquiao vs Thurman” also aired on S+A, and was viewed live without commercials and on high-definition via SKY Sports PPV, with a blow-by-blow coverage on DZMM Radyo Patrol 630 with sports anchor Dyan Castillejo and analyst Quinito Henson.
Senator Pacquaio’s big day was made even more special with the launch of ABS-CBN’s National Cheer Campaign featuring the theme “Isigaw Mo Galing Natin Ito” sang by 27 Kapamilya artists and OPM singers.
