Congressman Celso L. Lobregat is sponsoring the “live” showing of the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight of the century here in Zamboanga City.

Giant screens were installed, one inside the Southern City Colleges building and another at the Western Mindanao State University gym,  which will enable boxing fans to watch the historic bout as it happens and where it happens at the MGM Grand at Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Congressman Lobregat said complimentary tickets are being distributed that allows ticket holders  admission to either of the two venues.

The tickets come in different colors so as to guide ticket holders on their designated seats.

As added feature, starting yesterday morning, radio and television stations have been running TRIVIAS on-the-air about the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight and callers or texters who answer correctly get to win complimentary tickets as prizes.

Lobregat said he decided to provide the facilities for the live showing considering that this fight is a once in a lifetime event in the world’s boxing history.

“Ta man sponsor quita este espectaculo como ofrecimiento para el di aton heroe si Manny Pacquiao y como ofrecimiento y dale alegria con el maga vivientes de Zamboanga,” stated Lobregat.

The District I congressman will be shuttling from one venue to the other to join Zamboanguenos in this very special event.

He expressed his thanks to the management of the Southern City Colleges and Western Mindanao State University for the use of their facilities and G-SAT for the live feed tomorrow. — Jubels Santos
