Manny Pacquiao finally got the better of Floyd Mayweather Jr.

A little over four years ago Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. finally stepped into the ring. Mayweather got the better of Pacquaio that day but Pacquaio maintains that he won that fight. There were talks of a rematch but it never came together. Now it looks like Pacquiao has finally beaten Mayweather. But this time outside the ring.

The 40-year-old part-time Philippines senator/part-time boxer went on social media to announce he earned a bachelor of arts degree in political science. Pacquiao got his degree from the University of Makati, he said in his post.

“Let us engrave this is in our hearts: It is never too late to dream bigger dreams,” he said. “It is never too late to accomplish our dreams.”

Pacquiao said that earning his bachelor’s degree was his “most meaningful” achievement.

One wonders if he would have said the same thing if he beat Mayweather.

Pacquiao added, “Let the victory outside the boxing ring serve as an inspiration for people who are struggling to fight, to rise above adversity, to conquer and to embrace life and all its difficulties.”

Let us engrave this in our hearts: It is never too late to dream bigger dreams. It is never too late to accomplish our dreams. LIVE YOUR PASSION, not just for yourself, but for your family and for our country. I am grateful to the Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP) of the Philippine Councilors League-Legislative Academy (PCCLA) which gives chance to qualified Filipinos to attain College degree/diploma- Filipinos who wish to complete college through informal education. The enriching learning program was in partnership with the University of Makati College of Continuing, Advanced and Professional Studies, the Development Academy of the Philippines, and the Philippine Society for Public Administration. I will always remember the key lessons that I learned and the insights that I gained from all of you! I will always cherish the excitement that I experienced during the entire learning process leading to the exit conference, the final requirement that I needed to complete in order to earn a degree in Bachelor of Arts in Political Science- Local Government Administration. I am excited to receive my diploma and display it on the wall. I dedicate this to my very beautiful and very supportive wife, Jinkee, and to our amazing children, Jimuel, Michael, Princess, Queenie, and Israel. I will also show this diploma to my Mommy Dionisia, my Dad, and my siblings and remind them of God’s faithfulness. Among my achievements, this will be the most meaningful. Let this victory outside the boxing ring serve as an inspiration for people who are struggling to fight, to rise above adversity, to conquer and to embrace life and all its difficulties. Emmanuel D. Pacquiao Bachelor of Arts in Political Science- Local Government Administration Class of 2019, University of Makati

Manny Pacquiao is truly an inspiration. This is a victory that Floyd will never achieve. Who needs a rematch when you can have a bachelor’s degree in political science? Great job Pacquiao! Luckily your shoulder wasn’t injured which would have prevented you from taking your tests.
