Manny ‘Pac-Man’ Pacquiao is an iconic boxer and one of the most well known champions in history. He has been a world champion eight different categories, setting records for his achievements at every turn. In 2019 he became the oldest welterweight world boxing championship ever achieved by defeating Keith Thurman to put himself on top as pound-for-pound best fighter in all of boxing today!
Manny Pacquiao has been a fighter for over thirty years and despite his tumultuous upbringing, he is now one of the most successful fighters in history. He was born to an impoverished family that had immigrated from General Santos City in the Philippines with nothing left but their belongings when they arrived at Manila Airport. Manny’s father abandoned them shortly thereafter leaving him as head of household while raising all seven siblings by himself through hard work on carabao farms earning about 40 cents per day which meant having no money for food or clothes; so instead, they would pick up stones along roadsides and sell it back home where people were making concrete blocks out of those rocks They sold every last rock until there weren’t any more left to find anywhere around town
Manny (62-7-2,39KOs), however, shocked the world on Friday afternoon when he took to his Twitter account to announce that his bout versus Errol Spence (27-0, 21KOs) had been set for August 21st in Las Vegas. Source confirmed the announcement with the managers of both boxers, making this one of the best boxing bouts the boxing calendar will ever have. The magnitude of the fight between two of the world’s best fighters crowns everything as elite and must-watch.
That said, Manny has been in inactivity since defeating Keith Thurman in 2019. This saw WBA strip him off his WBA super welterweight title due to inactivity, and to claim that back, he would have to get back into the ring again. Standing on his way will be Errol Spence, ranked 4th by ESPN among the best pound-for-pound boxers.
This fight will be an excellent test for Manny since Spence is the current unified WBC and IBF titleholder who has never lost a bout after ripping Kell Brook’s face to clinch the WBC title.
Pacquiao, 42, is known for never shying away from any opponent since starting his boxing career. He remains the personification of all contradictions in boxing embodied in one person by beating the favorite opponents more than many times in his career.
