SCHAAP: Roach has said you've become more religious, and he's concerned that will affect the way you fight. How do you respond to that concern?
PACQUIAO: It doesn't bother my boxing.
SCHAAP: You're the same boxer you were?
SCHAAP: Why did you become more religious?
PACQUIAO: Because I'm reading the manual to life, which is the Bible, and I learn a lot of things there -- how to obey the law and the commandments of God and how to have eternal life.
SCHAAP: What was your life like before you found God?
PACQUIAO: I'm always praying, but it's not enough. I was drinking, committing adultery, sexual immorality, everything like that. Gambling. Careless words come out of my mouth. The Bible says we'll be judged for everything we do.
SCHAAP: You're a different man?
PACQUIAO: Yes. Whatever happens after our life here in this world, I know where I'm going. I have eternal life.
SCHAAP: And you have recommitted yourself to your marriage?
PACQUIAO: Yes, yes. It's important to be united.
