Manny Pacquiao says Miss Philippines winning Miss Universe is revenge for his loss to Floyd Mayweather

While the whole world including host Steve Harvey crumbled during Sunday night's Miss Universe debacle, Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach remained cool, calm and collected. And after the initial confusion, she was announced the new queen, ending a 42-year Miss Universe drought for the Philippines, something boxer Manny Pacquiao feels is the perfect revenge for his loss in his fight with Floyd Mayweather earlier this year.
Speaking to philboxing.com, Pacquiao said
"Courage is grace under pressure. This is what Pia showed in the middle of the confusion and controversy that marked her coronation as the new Miss Universe. Remember, when I lost to Floyd last May, she made a promise to all of us Filipinos that she will avenge that defeat come the Miss Universe pageant, which she just has fulfilled. I intend to use [that] as an inspiration and additional motivation for me in my next fight." Pacquiao said
