Editor's Note: After defeating American boxing legend Golden Boy Oscar De La Hoya in the welterweight "Dream Match," the Philippines' People's Champ, Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao came home to Manila to a more subdued hero's welcome than previous ones. But his countrymen were no less jubilant. Philippine media confirm that he attended a thanksgiving mass, visited the House of Representatives and capped his homecoming day with his traditional courtesy call to Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

This special collaboration video report from NAM's "New America Now" TV program and daily English newscast "Balitang America" (News From America), of ABS-CBN Global The Filipino Channel -- highlights Filipino, Latino and other fight fans who watched the action, as well as Pacquiao's interview in Las Vegas right after the fight.

This is a streaming MP4 video - you'll need Quicktime 6 or later to view it.

Odette Keeley hosts and produces video for New America Media's TV program on COMCAST ON DEMAND, "New America Now." Victor Petersen, Mike Siv, Josue Rojas and Jonathan Sanchez are video producers for NAM. Regina Reyes is the North America News Bureau Chief for ABS-CBN Global The Filipino Channel.
