Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao is an eight-division world champion, the first boxer in history to win ten world titles in eight different weight divisions. He is also the first boxer in history to win the lineal championship in four different weight classes. He was named “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000’s by the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA). He is also a three-time The Ring “Fighter of the Year”, winning the award in 2006, 2008, and 2009. At the age of 14, Pacquiao moved to Manila and lived, for a time, on the streets. He started boxing and made the Philippine national amateur boxing team where his room and board were paid for by the government. Pacquiao reportedly had an amateur record of 64 fights (60–4). After two years, Pacquiao made his pro boxing debut at the age of 16. At the age of 32, Manny is a 16-year pro – he made his debut at 16. Boxing’s biggest and brightest star, he has been fighting at the top levels of competition and given some of the most

sensational performances in the ring in recent years. He has won world titles at 112, 122, 126, 130, 135, 140, 147, and 154 pounds. Not only has Manny won against bigger men, but he has defeated the very best of each division such as: Marco Anonio Barrera, Juan Manuel Marquez, Erik Morales, Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Miguel Cotto, and Antonio Margarito. Manny is not only recognized by most observers as the best fighter at any weight in the ring today – the best “Pound for Pound” – but is also considered one of the sport’s all-time greats. He is the national hero of his native Philippines – the entire country of over 96 million people comes to a virtual standstill to watch whenever he fights. He was elected last year as a Congressman in the Sarangani province in the Philippines. He is also a recording artist and an action-movie star in his home country.
