Although Pacquaio himself has yet to address the student body, he has released a statement promising to “fight for growth and topple barriers to success” for the university. He also promised to install his loyal trainer, Freddie Roach, in the newly-created role of Vice President for Athletics.

The boxer pledged an undisclosed sum to completely renovate the university’s gymnasium and install a state-of-the-art boxing ring in a bid to revolutionize the athletics offerings of the school. He added that “any injuries resulting from student boxing training can easily be treated at our new College of Medicine.”
