The first installment of the documentary, which was aired last week, focused on the rags to riches story of Pacquiao with a strong focus on the country's economic and religious background.
The second part of the documentary highlighted Pacquiao's entry to Philippine politics. The BBC presenter interviewed university professors like Winnie Monsod, Alex Magno and politicians like Rasul, Roman Romulo and Dimaporo, a prominent personality from Sarangani, where Pacquiao won a seat in the House of Representatives.
Of all the politicians interviewed, Economists Winnie Monsod expressed concerns on the boxers entry into government. She said:
" that Pacquiao only comes into the horizon when he boxes, I wont forgive any mistakes that he makes. He certainly has a steep learning curve.He has been a big flop when it comes to his films and concerts. His effectiveness in the political arena remains to be seen."
Pacquiao's opening speech in the House of Reprentatives can be heard in the documentary. Many people expressed great concerns on how Pacquiao will deal with the corruption in the government. Pacquiao is certainly there to make a change. His response to the corruption issue says something of the straighforwardness of the person. He says that he does not need to be corrupt in order to serve people. Of course, he does not need to. He definitely gets more millions boxing than being corrupt.
