Reactions from Philippines after Pacquiao lost to Mayweather in Las Vegas

The 'big money fight' in Las Vegas was decided in favour of American Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. But Pacquiao's supporter feel cheated.

In General Santos city, fans cried saying Pacman deserved to win the bout in Las Vegas because he was the aggressor and chased Mayweather around the ring.

"Its a home-town decision," said Karlo Alexei Nograles, a lawmaker from Davao City. "Manny should have won. He had Mayweather running and cornered on the ropes. Manny did not disappoint Filipinos, he gave it his all."

President Benigno Aquino thanked Pacquiao for inspiring his countrymen to strive for better lives.

"He fought for respect, not points," Edwin Lacierda, the President's spokesman said. "He won the hearts of the world."
