New job for boxer-solon: Pacquiao is new face of PH tourism

Image

MANILA – It's more fun in the Philippines—and it will soon be up to boxing icon and lawmaker Manny Pacquiao to prove it to foreign tourists.

The House Committee on Tourism on Thursday approved a proposal to designate the boxer-senator as spokesperson for the Department of Tourism's (DOT) upcoming campaign to promote Philippine attractions here and abroad.

"Senator Pacquiao's international stature is a big boost to the tourism industry of the country. His endorsement would create a lot of impact, especially in the social media," said 1-PACMAN Representative Enrico Pineda in a statement.

Professional fights

Image

Light flyweight

In 1995, the death of a young aspiring boxer and close friend, Eugene Barutag, spurred the young Pacquiao to pursue a professional boxing career. Pacquiao started his professional boxing career when he was just 16 years old, stood at 4'11'' and weighed 98 pounds (7 pounds under the minimumweightdivision).

He admitted before American media that he put weights in his pockets to make the 105-pound weight limit.  His early light flyweight division fights took place in small local venues and were shown on Vintage Sports' Blow by Blow, an evening boxing show. His professional debut was a four-round bout against Edmund "Enting" Ignacio, on January 22, 1995. Weighed just 106 pounds, Pacquiao won via a unanimous decision, becoming an instant star of the program.

Pacquiao's name was so accustomed to the viewers not only because of his aggressive, go-for-broke kamikaze-style of fighting, but also of his unique looks and catchy surname.

Flyweight

Image

Pacquiao's weight increased from 106 to 113 pounds before losing in his 12th bout against Rustico Torrecampo via a third-roundknockout, he was caught with a looping left hand flush on the chin which he couldn't get up from. Pacquiao failed to make the required weight, so he was forced to use heavier gloves than Torrecampo, thereby putting him at a disadvantage.

Following the Torrecampo fight, Pacquiao continued undefeated for his next 15 fights. He went on another unbeaten run that saw him take on the more experienced Chokchai Chockvivat in flyweight division. Pacquiao knocked out Chockvivat in the fifth round and took the OPBF Flyweight title. After one official defense and two non-title bouts, Pacquiao got his first opportunity to fight for a world title.

Pacquiao vs. Sasakul

Pacquiao captured the WBC and lineal flyweight titles (his first major boxing world title) over Chatchai Sasakul by way of knockout in the eighth round.  He defended the titles successfully against MexicanGabriel Mira via a fourth-round technical knockout. However, Pacquiao lost the lineal title in his second defense against Medgoen Singsurat, also known as Medgoen 3K Battery, via a third-round knockout. The bout was held in Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand. Singsurat got Pacquiao on the ropes and landed a flush straight right to the body, coiling Pacquiao over and keeping him there. Prior to the fight Pacquiao lost the WBC title at the scales, as he surpassed the weight limit of 112 pounds.

Super bantamweight

Following his loss to Singsurat, Pacquiao gained weight and skipped the super flyweight and bantamweight divisions. This time, Pacquiao went to super bantamweight, or junior featherweight, division of 122 pounds, where he picked up the WBC International Super Bantamweight title. He defended this title five times before his chance for a world title fight came.

Pacquiao vs. Ledwaba

Pacquiao's big break came on June 23, 2001, against IBF Super Bantamweight title holderLehlohonolo Ledwaba. Pacquiao stepped into the fight as a late replacement on two weeks' notice but won the fight by technical knockout to win the title, his second major boxing world title. The bout was held at theMGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas,Nevada. Pacquiao went on to defend this title four times under head trainer Freddie Roach, owner of the Wild Card Gym in West Hollywood.

Manny Pacquiao Floyd Mayweather Jr. Rematch Hints! Boxers in an Instagram Feud?

Image

Manny Pacquiao Floyd Mayweather Jr. rematch– Last May 2, 2015, we have witnessed the toe-to-toe fight of the two juggernauts in the boxing world. Many called the Pacquiao and Mayweather bout, the “fight of the century”, despite the criticism of how the fight ended on both sides.  Both of them met and fought in the same squared-circle and broke every record in the book known to man.

Furthermore, the two have been making buzzes from their controversial Instagram posts. Mayweather Jr. boasted his whopping $100M checque, as Pacman posted a bible verse. Rumors say it’s a response to the undefeated boxer’s wealth bragging.

Pacquiao vs. Barrera I

Image

On November 15, 2003, Pacquiao facedMarco Antonio Barrera at the Alamodome,San Antonio, Texas, in a fight that many consider to have defined his career.

Pacquiao, who was fighting at featherweightfor the first time, brought his power with him and defeated Barrera via technical knockout in the eleventh round, only the second knockout loss in Barrera's career, and won The Ring and lineal featherweight championships, making him the first Filipino and Asian to become a three-division world champion, a fighter who won world titles in three different weight divisions. He defended the title twice before relinquishing it in 2005.

Pacquiao vs. Márquez I

Image

Six months after the fight with Barrera, Pacquiao challenged Juan Manuel Márquez, who at the time held both the WBA and IBF Featherweight titles. The fight took place at the MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas, on May 8, 2004.

In the first round, Márquez was caught cold, as he was knocked down three times by Pacquiao. However, Márquez showed great heart to recover from the early knockdowns and went on to win the majority of rounds thereafter. This was largely due to Márquez's counterpunch style, which he managed to effectively utilize against the aggressive style of Pacquiao. At the end of a very close fight, both boxers felt they had done enough to win the fight. The bout was scored a draw, which proved to be a controversial decision.

The final scores were 115–110 for Márquez, 115–110 for Pacquiao and 113–113. The judge who scored the bout 113–113 admitted to making an error on the scorecards, having scored the first round as 10–7 in favor of Pacquiao instead of the standard 10–6 for a three-knockdown round. If he had scored the round 10–6 for Pacquiao (as the other two judges did), the result would have been a split decision in favor of Pacquiao. However,ESPN reported that some pundits are also scored the fight in favor of Márquez.

Luke 16:19-31 
The Rich Man proclaimed his wealth to all the world. But Lazarus the Poor Man was the winner at the end. What does it profit a man to be very rich and never help the poor? Let this be a reminder to us all that God gives us our riches to help the poor.

2016 THE WORLD'S HIGHEST-PAID ATHLETES EARNINGS $24 Million


Image


Manny Pacquiao earned more than $500 million during this career from purses, pay-per-view and endorsements. Pacquiao was elected to the Filipino Senate in May after first being elected to the House of Representatives. He was once a marketing darling with companies like Nike, Foot Locker, Hewlett-Packard and Nestle, but companies avoided the eight division world champ after his 2016 comments comparing gay people to animals. Pacquiao's fight with Floyd Mayweather in May 2015 set every financial record in the history of boxing, including PPV buys (4.6 million), gate ($73 million) and total revenue ($600 million), and rewarded him with a $125 million payday.
