The boxing trunks worn by Sen. Manny Pacquiao against his fight with Keith Thurman were finally sold for $24,000 or P1.2 million pesos in a charity auction.

The high bid will benefit a group of non-profit organizations fighting against Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), brought together through the Jimmy Kimmel Live team and Charitybuzz.

ALS is amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or also known as motor neuron disease that causes the death of neurons controlling voluntary muscles.

Before his fight with Thurman, Pacquiao had an interview with Kimmel where the fighting senator promised to put his boxing trunks up for sale at the Charity Buzz website./ with reports from Bombo Bam Orpilla; edited by Bombo Sol Marquez.
