Manny Pacquiao Bio
Manny Pacquiao was born in Kibawe, Bukidnon, Philippines in 1978. After experiencing extreme poverty for much of his childhood, he relocated to Manila when he was 14 and found a spot on the Philippine national amateur boxing ream and compiled a record of 60-4. He began his professional career just two years later and captured the lineal and WBC Flyweight titles against Chatchai Sasakul to earn his first major boxing world title. Standing at just 4-feet-11-inches and 98 pounds, Pacquiao strapped weights to himself in early fights to make the minimum weight of 105 pounds.
Since beginning his professional boxing career two decades ago, Pacquiao has compiled a 57-5-2 record with 38 of those wins coming by way of KO. The southpaw is now listed at 5-feet-6-inches and weighs 144 pounds. Much like his superstar counterpart Floyd Mayweather, Pacquiao has fought the majority of his latest bots at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Since 2008, eight of his last 12 fights have been held in Vegas, with his upcoming fight against Mayweather listed as the “Fight of the Century” in May.
Pacquiao has had 20 of his professional fights broadcasted on pay-per-view and six of them have garnered at least 1.1 million buys. He is in contractual agreement with HBO, which has televised 17 of those 20 fights.
Aside from boxing, Pacquiao has been involved in basketball, acting, singing and has been a member of the Philippine House of Representatives since 2010. A landslide victory over Roy Chiongbiang elected him as congressman of Sarangani in 2010, and his second term in 2013 was unopposed. In 2014, he was drafted by the Kia basketball team of the PBA and became the oldest rookie ever drafted in the league at 35.
Pacquiao will go down in history as one of the most influential boxers in the history of the sport when he decides to hang up his gloves for good. He’ll have plenty of post-boxing activity lined up when that time comes, too, as he continues to add to his extensive resume.
