Boxing trainer and Manny Pacquiao’s boxing buddy Buboy Fernandez maintains his lead in the vice-mayor race in Polangui, Albay while congressmen Mikee Romero and Eric are heading for a term extension with 1Pacman on track to winning them seats.     Just like in sports, some were not as lucky.

Olympian Monsour del Rosario bowed down to incumbent Makati vice mayor Monique Lagdameo, Don Allado failed to get a seat in San Juan City council while Peter Aguilar, former Ginebra player and father of current Gin Kings player and national team member Japeth, failed to get a seat as vice mayor of Sasmuan, Pampanga.    .....»»
