Pacman a big draw among Filipinos

KUALA LUMPUR: Politician and pugilist Manny Pacquiao’s slugfest is the big draw – but there is a more diplomatic meeting planned for Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to greet tough-talking Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte here.

Nicknamed “The Punisher” for the way he has managed the war on drugs in his country since taking office in 2016, Duterte is said to be looking forward to the meeting scheduled for tomorrow afternoon in Putrajaya.
