Boxing: Pacquiao allowed to leave hospital
Wednesday 26 May 2010
The seven-times world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao checked out from a private hospital in the Philippines capital yesterday, two days after he was admitted suffering from stomach pains and fatigue.
"I'm OK," Pacquiao said as he walked out of Manila's Cardinal Santos Memorial Hospital with his family. "I was advised to take my medication and not to skip any meal. Nothing to worry about," said Pacquiao, who won a seat in the national Congress in the elections on 10 May.
On Saturday night, Pacquiao complained of severe stomach pain. Doctors said he could be suffering from ulcers and advised the boxer to rest for two days.
Pacquiao last week agreed to undergo random drug testing in order to help negotiations to set up a fight with the undefeated American Floyd Mayweather.
