About MANNY PACQUIAO:

Arguably one of the greatest boxers of all time, and certainly the greatest fighter ever from the Philippines and Asia, Manny Pacquiao has cemented his place in history as the only world champion to hold titles in eight weight divisions. He delivered some of history’s most memorable performances in the boxing ring and more recently, at the age of 40, became the oldest fighter in boxing history to win a major welterweight title.

Pacquiao’s influence transcends the boxing world. He has vowed to give back to the people of the Philippines, serving first as a Congressman and currently as a senator. His Pacquiao Foundation has been hard at work to help those affected by natural disasters and the current pandemic. Furthermore, he has selflessly given out financial aid to those in need.

Pacquiao is known worldwide as a statesman, an athlete, and a man of good character. His story is inspiring to all those dreaming of a better life. More importantly, Manny Pacquiao is not done yet. He is still an active boxer, active public servant and philanthropist. His legend continues.
