Ang Pambansang Kamao or “The National Fist” arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport fresh from his record-breaking fight against Floyd Mayweather on 2 May 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. He, his family and his team were escorted directly to Dusit Thani Manila, an official partner of Pacquiao’s Homecoming Party.
