Pacquiao eyes congress seat!

By Nick Giongco

It's green and go for Manny Pacquiao's plan to run as congressman in his home province of South Cotabato on May 14. "There's nor turning back for me," said Pacquiao on Monday morning after meeting with local leaders here over the weekend.

Pacquiao will be up against incumbent Darlene Antonino-Custodio and political analysts believe the star boxer will be up against a brick wall. Pacquiao is also revving up for an April 14 clash with unbeaten Jorge Solis of Mexico in San Antonio, Texas. Pacquiao says he will fly to the US on Friday or Saturday.
