CO-SPONSORSHIP REMARKS – Inserted into Records
Proposed Senate Resolution No. 587 of Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” T. Go
Resolution Commending and Congratulating Marlon Tapales for Winning the World Boxing Association (WBA) and International Boxing Federation (IBF) World Super Bantamweight Titles (Sen. Go)
10 May 2023
This representation would like to be associated with Senate Resolution No. 587 commending and congratulating Marlon Tapales for winning the World Boxing Association (WBA) and the International Boxing Federation (IBF) World Super Bantamweight titles.
Isa na naman pong Pilipino ang nag-wagayway ng bandila ng Pilipinas sa international boxing arena at nagpatunay ng gilas, puso, tapang, at lakas ng Pinoy. Isang undefeated champion po mula sa bansang Uzbekistan qang naka-tikim ng kanyang unang pagkatalo mula sa kamao ng ating kababayan. Gaya ng kanyang alias na “Nightmare,” bangungot na maituturing ang inabot na pagka-sawi ng kanyang nakalaban sa boxing ring.
Isang malaking karangalan po ang naiuwi ni Marlon Tapales, na tubong Lanao del Norte, and it is fitting that this August chamber confers him with highest distinction.
I would like to express my admiration for our rising boxing star, who is set to join the pantheon of Filipino boxing heroes who throughout the years brought great pride and honor to our country. Sa edad na 31, tiyak na malayo pa po ang mararating ng ating bagong kampyon. I hope that he sustains the fire, passion, discipline, and hard work in order to attain more championship belts in the future and inspire more young athletes and fellow Filipinos to follow the path of excellence.
As a sports afficionado myself and as a proud Filipino, I respectfully ask the good author, Sen. Bong Go, to be a co-sponsor of this resolution.
Thank you, Mr. President.
