The heavy rainfall could not stop the fans from greeting a hero's welcome to eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao when he arrived at General Santos City after his victorious victory against Lucas Matthysse.

He was greeted with loud screams from his fans with music played by the band when it arrived at GenSan Airport.

When the plane landed, the rain poured down at the same time.

The Pinoy ring icon is wearing a black polo shirt.

First came down were some relatives and followed by Manny and Jinkee couples with their children.

From the airport, Pacquiao immediately rides on his hummer to go straight to a mall where a presscon will take place.

The original plan is no longer followed by giving a military honor to the "National Fist" and it does not even ride the prepared float for a motorcade that will go around different parts of the city.

Meanwhile, boxing fans saw "fresh-looking" Manny Pacquiao, as if it did not come from the fight.


Good to be back Manny. Even though you were not able to go around the different parts of the city with your fans, they still love and honor you as a hero. People understand that you have many important errands to attend and we support you on that. I think retiring is still not on his mind because he loves boxing. He enjoys boxing and it is his passion. Stay strong and stay in good shape, Manny. Thank you
