Dressed in a bright magenta dress, Catriona Gray the reigning Miss Universe proudly waved the Philippine flag as Filipino boxing champ Manny Pacquiao defeated Keith Thurman for the World Boxing Association super welterweight belt of Saturday, July 20 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The 25-year-old beauty queen, Gray represented the Filipino people to the universe with grace and stunning beauty as she ushered the Filipino boxing icon during his entrance and joined him while being awarded the victor’s belt.
Most netizens took notice of Gray’s presence adding majesty to the Filipino delegation. Gray was in the news recently due to her Twitter post about bullying and body-shaming. “Body-shaming is hurtful and (should) never be tolerated. If anyone reading this too has been body-shamed, I know how it feels. I’m sorry you’ve had to experience that. But know that you are more than your appearance,” she said in a post.
It seems both Filipino icons are well loved not only for their accomplishments but more so for the personal values and humanitarian causes they are fighting for.
