MOMMY DIONISIA SINGING "RIKING BULL" SENDS NETIZENS ABLAZE

During the show “Gandang Gabi Vice,” Mommy Dionisia performed the Miley Cyrus’ song “Wrecking Ball,” sending netizens rolling in laughter. As it turned out, the Pacquiao matriarch was singing it as “Riking Bull,” immediately setting a trend on Twitter. Her son reclaimed the welterweight throne once again, and she has promptly claimed social media prominence. Heck, she may even be called Queen D. After Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao won back the World Boxing Organization Welterweight belt against Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley Sunday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Dionisia Pacquiao quickly approached the fallen American. Mommy D, as she is fondly called, was probably the first to console Bradley from the Pacquiao camp, giving the American some motherly love.

WBO Welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao now faces P2.56-billion in tax deficiencies after Sunday's match, Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Commissioner Kim Henares said. In an interview over dzMM on Monday, Henares added up Pacquiao's guaranteed $20 million purse from his rematch with Timothy Bradley to his alleged back taxes of P1.1 billion from 2008 to 2009 and interests. "December 2012 'yun, remember, may 2013 may 20 percent na 'yun at ngayong April, so may addition na six [to] seven percent po 'yan," she said. The People's Champion can settle the liabilities in the United States where his last fight was held and organized. Henares said, however, that the US Internal Revenue Service demands a 40 percent tax contribution from Pacquiao's earnings, while the BIR only asks for 32 percent.

After his victory last Sunday over American Timothy Bradley, Filipino boxing idol and Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao has nothing else to prove and should retire, his wife Jinkee said yesterday. “I think Manny has nothing more to prove,” Jinkee said. “He is the best fighter of his time. He’s already 35 years old and he’s not getting younger.” The Sarangani vice governor said she “really felt nervous while watching him exchange punches with Bradley.” Jinkee is seven months pregnant with their fifth child. Pacquiao’s two sons Jemuel, 13, and Michael, 12, told reporters they would also appeal to their father to retire from boxing after defeating Bradley. “If I were to decide, it’s better that my dad retire from boxing,” said Jemuel, who faced the media after his father’s victory. “I felt nervous while watching the fight. That is why we will be appealing to him to retire from boxing,” Michael said. But they said they would continue to support their father if he decides against retirement. Meanwhile, local officials in Sarangani and General Santos City are preparing a hero’s welcome for the fighting congressman. Sarangani Gov. Steve Solon said the province was jubilant over Pacquiao’s victory against the previously undefeated Bradley.

MANILA, Philippines — WBO Welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao now faces P2.56-billion in tax deficiencies after Sunday's match, Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Commissioner Kim Henares said.

In an interview over dzMM on Monday, Henares added up Pacquiao's guaranteed $20 million purse from his rematch with Timothy Bradley to his alleged back taxes of P1.1 billion from 2008 to 2009 and interests.

"December 2012 'yun, remember, may 2013 may 20 percent na 'yun at ngayong April, so may addition na six [to] seven percent po 'yan," she said.

The People's Champion can settle the liabilities in the United States where his last fight was held and organized.

Update: Palace: BIR chief not offending Pacquiao, spoiling victory

Henares said, however, that the US Internal Revenue Service demands a 40 percent tax contribution from Pacquiao's earnings, while the BIR only asks for 32 percent.

"Kung gagawin niya 'yung tama, palagay ko wala ho tayong makokolekta doon kung gagawin niya 'yung tama pero kung hindi pa rin niya gagawin 'yung tama, may problema na naman ho siya," she said.

Henares also reminded the boxer to document his US tax settlements and report to the BIR to avoid being levied twice.

Pacquiao has been embroiled in a tax trouble with the BIR and the US Internal Revenue Service.

Last Thursday, Henares advised Pacquiao in jest not to think about her in the ring during his April 13 fight and wished him luck. She also said she does not intend to nag him about his tax woes.

"Hindi naman ho ako nagre-remind sa kanya, tinatanong lang ako [ng media]. Kung tama ang gagawin n'ya, baka wala naman siyang babayaran sa Pilipinas kasi baka mas mataas ang babayaran n'ya sa Amerika," Henares said. —Camille Diola
