A “transcript” of interview between Manny Pacquiao and veteran broadcast-journalist Karen Davila has been circulating and making noise recently on social media.

KAMI learned that the Senator previously served as the guest on “Headstart,” a program that airs on ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC) and is hosted by the said reporter.

Their conversation on-air became controversial after the journalist asked Manny if he has a college degree and if he thinks it is necessary for a politician to have a diploma.

Karen’s questions offended the fans of the boxing champion, but the politician cleared several days later that he took no offense of what transpired during the interview.

However, in a viral post showing the “transcript” of their discussion, the 8-division world champion asked the host if she has a college degree and how much she is earning.

It was also written in the controversial post that Manny told Karen that he is earning more than 1 Billion from his experience even if he has no college degree.
