This brings us to today's final press conference for the much awaited fight happening on May 3 (Manila time).

People's champ Manny Pacquiao and the soon-to-be-beaten unbeaten Floyd Mayweather (ahem!) again had a face off. However, unlike the Pacman of the previous presser, our Pambansang Kamao broke into his normal pre-fight smile. Mayweather, on the other hand, still behaved rather uncharacteristically.

Bob Arum, who obviously adores Manny as much as we do, took time to tell the story about his goodness. He shared how Pacquiao succeeded in saving the life of Mary Jane Veloso, the Filipina who was supposed to be executed for drug smuggling, by writing a letter to Indonesia President Joko Widodo.

He also acknowledged the presence of the “two principal members” of Team Pacquiao–Freddie Roach and Michael Koncz. And because the old man was too nice to cause offense, he also introduced former Ilocos Sur Governor Luis "Chavit" Singson to the crowd.

“Look who’s [also] sitting there. The man who has become one of my dearest friends,” said Arum.

It came as no surprise to Filipinos that Gov. Chavit was in Las Vegas to support Manny. But it shocked everyone when the 73-year-old politician was summoned to the podium.

“He is a former governor in the Philippines. He’s Manny’s great friend and supporter. He’s a great, great guy I’ll attest to it because I visited the Philippines now many times," continued Arum, the founder and CEO of Top Rank, Manny's promoter. "He’s become a very good friend of mine. Please welcome, Governor Chavit Singson.”

Chavit in blue checkered polo, grey tuxedo, and orange tinted sunglasses then took the platform.

Here is his complete "speech": “Distinguished friends, guests, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you Bob for this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you especially the media, MGM, and Mr. Mayweather Promotions, Bob Arum, Shutaym Showtime and HBO, and everybody. Without all of you we’ll not be here today. Thank you so much!”

Unlike the Pambansang Kamao, though, netizens weren't as pleased with the Ilokano politician. Their main beef being: WTF is Chavit doing there? Below are the best (read: funniest slash angriest) tweets we found!
