Boxer meets boxer: Ping poses for photo with WBO champ Magsayo at Senate


Boxing may well be the bond that ties WBO International Featherweight champ Mark “Magnifico” Magsuyo and Sen. Panfilo Lacson.

Lacson, who engaged in boxing while studying at the Philippine Military Academy before graduating in 1971, posed for a photo with Magsayo at the Senate Tuesday.

Joining them at the photo opportunity, taken before the start of the Senate’s regular session, were Magsayo’s wife Frances and Tagbilaran (Bohol) First Lady Jane Yap.

Last Nov. 25, Magsayo defeated Shota Hayashi during their bout in Bohol.

Featherweight champ Mark “Magnifico” Magsuyo paid Sen. Panfilo Lacson a courtesy call.
