Nesthy Petecio is a Filipina boxer. She has won a gold medal at the 2019 AIBA Women's World Boxing Championships.
Meanwhile, Hidilyn Diaz, will not only come home with an Olympic gold medal but will be met with well-deserved rewards. She will be receiving P40.5M cash as pledged by government and private entities. The Olympian would also be the owner of several real estate properties. Foton also promised to give her a van and Phoenix also gave her free fuel for life.
Jinkee Pacquiao, who was really happy about Diaz's win, took to Instagram to show how proud she was of Hidilyn. She shared the awarding of Hidilyn Diaz who won the gold in the weightlifting 55kg in the recently concluded Olympics. The wife of Sen. Manny Pacquiao, for unknown reasons yet, perhaps out of haste, posted the wrong PH flag emoji. She used the emoji of Sint Maarten, a small country in the Carribean.
