During the said interview, Padilla confessed to cheating to help Pacquiao defeat Australian fighter Nadal Hussein in 2000.

According to Padilla, he deliberately prolonged the count to ten when Pacquiao got knocked down in the fourth round by Hussein.

“So, you know the opponent, Hussein, or whatever his name was. He is taller, younger, stronger and a dirty fighter, managed by Jeff Fenech. So in the [fourth round], Manny got knocked down, I thought he was going to get up, but his eyes were cross-eyed.
“I am Filipino, and everybody watching the fight is Filipino, so I prolonged the count. I know how to do it. When he got up, I told him, ‘Hey, are you okay?’ Still prolonging the fight. ‘Are you okay?’ ‘Okay, fight.’”
“[B]ecause Manny was not like Manny is now, he wasn’t trained by Freddie Roach yet, he holds on for his dear life, and [Hussein] throws him, and he went down again. I said to the opponent, ‘Hey, you don’t do this.’ You know, I was prolonging the fight. ‘You don’t do that. Okay, judges, [point] deduction,’” Padilla recalled.

Furthermore, the retired referee admitted that Pacquiao won by TKO because he ruled the Filipino boxer’s head butt as a punch. Although that head butt resulted in a cut, Padilla said that he also exaggerated the severity of the wound to have a stoppage win in favor of Pacquiao, who has not yet addressed Padilla’s comments as of this writing.

“[B]ecause he is shorter he headbutted the other guy and there is a cut, but I declared it a punch. If there is a headbutt you have to stop the fight and declare to the judges a point deduction, but I didn’t do that, meaning the fight could continue. [The cut] is not really big—but I never got the doctor to check it [because] I want to see it serious,” Padilla said.

Manny Pacquiao is an eight-division world boxing champion, considered one of the greatest boxers in history. He is married to Jinkee Pacquiao, whom he called his best friend. Jinkee and the boxing legend have five children – Emmanuel Jr. (Jimuel), Michael Stephen, Mary Divine Grace (Princess), Queen Elizabeth (Queenie), and Israel.

As previously reported by KAMI, Manny Pacquiao finally earned his master's degree from the Philippine Christian University. Earlier this week, the PCU held its 79th commencement exercises at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC). Aside from Manny, about 30 other senate employees received their master's degrees and even took photos with him.

Meanwhile, Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao flew to Germany together with their kids. On Instagram, the couple shared several photos and videos they took during the trip. Aside from visiting Germany, the Pacquiao family also decided to travel to Switzerland as well. Jinkee also took the time and effort to share some of the breathtaking landscapes they saw.
