One of the most, if not the most awaited meet ups in boxing for this year, Manny Pacquiao vs Ricky Hatton is closing in. May 2 is the date dedicated to the Pacquiao-Hatton bout, one of the toughest fights for Pacquiao ever. Accompanying him during this occasion for the singing of the Philippine National Anthem will be Martin Nievera to voice out to the world our very own Lupang Hinirang.Martin Nievera

Pacquiao played the underdog in recent matches but slowly draws attention from the crowd aside from his Filipino supporters. He loves being the underdog because at most occasions when he was the underdog, he succeeded, will he succeed again this time?

Fans of Charice Pempengco are astound with the fact that she will not be the one to lead the Philippine National Anthem, Lupang Hinirang. Maybe in an upcoming bout of Manny Pacquiao, she’ll be given the honor and the chance to present herself to the world, which she’s obviously done over and over again these past months.

Once again, it will be Martin Nievera to sing Lupang Hinirang during the Pacquiao vs Hatton bout.
