Report: Manny Pacquiao wins congressional race in landslide

Manny Pacquiao defeated heavily favored Roy Chiongbian in an easy win, according to Aol Boxing FanHouse.

Voting wasn't completed, but as of 10 p.m. Monday night, Pacquiao reportedly had 90,000 of a possible 125,000 votes, making it impossible for his opponent to win the race. Pacquiao, 31, is believed to be the only boxer to hold public office while still an active fighter.

It is not believed that Pacquiao's position in politics will effect his training. In fact, Top Rank boss Bob Arum said Pacquiao will be back in the ring on November 13, according to AOL Boxing FanHouse.

Obviously everyone is hoping his opponent will be Floyd Mayweather Jr. But Arum wouldn't say.

Pacquiao will be sworn into office in June.
