Manny Pacquiao likely to finish at 7th spot in Phil senate polls

Filipino boxing icon and congressman Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao likely to finish 7th spot in the Philippine senate polls

Pacquiao garnered 15,584,906 votes as of 6:45 PM, Friday, 13 May 2016 (Manila time) representing 96.04 percent of the election returns. These are unofficial results posted on the GMA website. With less than four percent remaining of the election returns to count, it is safe to say that Pacquiao is going to the Philippine senate.

Pacquiao entered at the ninth spot in the early start of the counting after the election closed at 5:00 PM on May 9. Now, he's currently at number seven and has over three million votes ahead of ranked number 13.

Bob Arum, Pacquiao's promoter said that "any Pacquiao fight is out the window," when asked by Fight Hub about a fight with Mexican star Saul Canelo Alvarez who just won via knockout last weekend against Amir Khan.

"Manny is not a fighter anymore, he's a senator from the Philippines. It's a big role for him," said Arum.
