“Mr. Montes if you are watching the video, I hope you do, I really hope you do, this is my offer to you. Obviously hindi mo tinuturuan properly ang mga kids mo, so this is what I’m gonna do to you, I’m challenging you into a fight, tayong dalawa, kung gusto mo sa harap pa ng kids mo,” he said.
“Name me the time, the place, I’ll be there,” he added.
He also said that he’s ready to give 100,000 pesos if he loses against the father Montes, however, if he wins, Mr. Montes must apologize publicly for what their son did to other students of Ateneo.
