Dela Rosa was asked during an interview who among the presidential candidates he feels would be the toughest to beat in a debate.

Among the big names Dela Rosa will be competing against are Pacquiao, Senator Panfilo Lacson, former Senator Bongbong Marcos, Manila City Mayor “Isko Moreno” Domagoso, Vice President Leni Robredo and Labor leader Leody de Guzman.

The former PNP chief expressed his confidence in Pacquiao's intelligence despite his educational attainment. According to Dela Rosa, Pacquiao may appear weak compared to their rivals in terms of public speaking but he has a far higher IQ than them.

Dela Rosa remarked, "Like for example, baka sabihin ninyo weakest na kadebate si Senator Manny Pacquiao dahil nga pag binabasehan natin palagi yung educational attainment nung tao pero hindi mo ba alam na napakataas ng IQ ni Senator Pacquiao."

"Napakagaling po nyan. Hindi po yan basta basta matatalo sa debate. Trust me, pag nandyan sa debate si Senator Pacquiao marami yang ilalampaso dyan. Mataas ang IQ nyan," he continued.

Dela Rosa added it is unfair that people mock Pacquiao because of his English-speaking skills but clarified that it is not the basis of one's intelligence.

"Siguro lang pagtatawanan natin minsan yung, pagtatawanan ng iba yung kanyang English pero English is just a language, hindi ‘yan measure ng katalinuhan ng tao. Ang katalinuhan ng tao name-measure sa IQ. And trust me, Sen. Pacquiao has a very high IQ,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Commission of Election already announced that there will be three presidential debates. It will be face to face for the candidates while the audience will join virtually.
