In a press briefing on Tuesday, Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque wished boxer-turned-senator Pacquiao luck on his upcoming fight with Errol Spence in August.

We wish all Filipinos the best of luck in whatever they do best, and pagdating kay Manny Pacquiao, he’s best in the boxing ring, and probably not as good elsewhere,” Roque said.

The administration was currently at odds with Senator Pacquiao after the senator started to criticize the government, recently accusing it of corruption.

Responing to President Rodrigo Duterte’s challenge to name corruption-hit government agencies, Senator Pacquiao named the Department of Health (DOH), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

Senator Pacquiao claimed that he had documents to prove corruption in several government agencies and also said that he would refer those documents to the Senate Blue Ribbon committee for investigation.

On Monday, Roque dismissed Senator Pacquiao’s corruption allegations as “worthless”, calling it “watusi” since the supposed revelations were only generalized and weren’t backed by evidence.

Roque also chided Senator Pacquiao for initiating an investigation when he wouldn’t be present during the investigation.

Gaya nga po ng sinabi ni Senator [Richard] Gordon, paano naman yan, magpapaimbestiga siya sa Senado pero wala yung proponent? Sino yung magtatanong? Hindi po ganyan ang trabaho ng Senado. Dapat po ayusin muna ang trabaho niya bilang isang senador. Patunayan ang kanyang mga paratang dahil kung hindi po, pulitika lang po talaga ang mga pinagsasasabi ni Senator Pacquiao,” Roque said.
