Retired boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. said he was impressed by entrepreneurs who established health and beauty products company Frontrow.
Mayweather, who retired undefeated with 50 victories under his name, visited Manila to attend the inauguration of Frontrow’s new main office.
He praised Frontrow bosses, Tutok to win Party-list Rep. Sam Verzosa Jr. and RS Francisco, for their thrust to help the underprivileged through “Frontrow Cares.”
Another prime example of a Filipino whose heart is close to the masses, he said, is his former rival former senator Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather said he understands the situation of the poor since he used to be one of the underprivileged before becoming a boxing superstar.
The American boxer believes Verzosa will also be able to help the poor as he represents them in Congress.
