Manny Pacquiao - The Filipino Whose Heart Beats With Love
For His Country and His Countrymen
Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao (born December 17, 1978), known simply as Manny Pacquiao, is a Filipino musician, actor, host and professional boxer. He was born in Kibawe, Bukidnon, Mindanao and resides in his hometown of Gen. Santos City, Philippines. He is currently the WBC Lightweight champion. He was also the former WBC Super Featherweight champion, Ring Magazine's super featherweight and featherweight champion, world champion at IBF Superbantamweight, and WBC Flyweight divisions. Manny is the first Filipino and Asian boxer to win four world titles in different weight divisions. He took over as the Ring Magazine pound for pound number one ranked boxer in the world on June 9, 2008 after Floyd Mayweather, Jr. announced his retirement from boxing. Pacquiao is scheduled to face Oscar de la Hoya on Saturday, December 6, 2008 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Manny Pacquiao is a lesson in humility. He never forgets about his humble beginnings and shares with his countrymen the blessings that the Lord has so graciously showered on him. He is also very religious, donning a rosary on his neck in every fight and kneels down and prays before every fight. He is courageous beyond compare and has a shark's instinct in going for the kill. As merciless as he is atop the ring, he is a gentle and kind person away from it, offering words of comfort and encouragement to those he had vanquished. That is the reason why all his opponents whom he has defeated have only kind words for him.
Manny Pacquiao is a modern day phenomena in the Philippines, a heaven sent rain to this spiritually drought stricken country. He galvanizes the entire nation during his fights- from the President of the country down to the least street cobbler and the indefatigable peasant at his farm. The world is at a standstill in the Philippines whenever Manny Pacquiao fights and a cascading multitude of prayers bombard heaven's gates from the hopeful Filipino nation.
Manny Pacquiao- the man of destiny because of his abject humility and his open declaration of God's glory.
