Pacquiao Promoted To Colonel
Manny Pacquiao has a new title to add, as the former world champion and senator has announced he has been promoted to the role of colonel in the Philippines Army.
The 38-year-old Filipino, who is in the army reserves, previously held the role of lieutenant colonel. The new colonel posted a series of pictures yesterday on Instagram in his army fatigues.
“Today, I successfully defended my commandant’s paper to be promoted to a full Colonel,” Pacquiao stated
Pacquiao, a senator in the Philippines, lost his WBO world welterweight title in a shock defeat to undefeated Australian Jeff Horn in July before a crowd of over 51,000 at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.
Pacquiao adds an additional responsibility on his plate, which includes the deal with Dancing Sports to bring boxing events to China.
