Sor Rungvisai admitted that he admires Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao, who is the sport’s only eight-division world champion and was long rated as the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world by most sporting news outfits and boxing websites.

“Manny Pacquiao is my hero. He is my idol. It’s always a treat to watch him fight in the ring. Obviously, we’re both southpaws. Other than that, I respect him for what he has done for his family through boxing,” he shared.

Pacquiao and Sor Rungvisai have striking similarities as both men had tough beginnings with barely anything to start out with—from penniless homes to underprivileged surroundings.

The proud son of General Santos City, Philippines grew up with his family in a shanty area of the town, sleeping on cardboard boxes, buying doughnuts and then selling them for a penny more to eke out a living.

At 12 years old, Pacquiao ran away from home, living on the streets of Manila while working as a gardener and a construction worker.

Meanwhile, Sor Rungvisai left his hometown of Sisaket at the age of 13 to look for odd jobs in Thailand's capital of Bangkok.

Sor Rungvisai initially worked as a security guard, but when the money was not enough to buy food, he searched for leftover food from the trash that he collected at a nearby department store.

In order to support their own families, Pacquiao and Sor Rungvisai dabbled into boxing, seeing it as their only escape from poverty.

Squeezing through the eye of a needle to survive, Pacquiao and Sor Rungvisai conquered difficult odds and established themselves among the best and the brightest athletes of professional boxing.

Despite their respective successes inside the ring, Pacquiao and Sor Rungvisai remained humble as the two highly-decorated pugilists preferred not to scowl and flaunt what they have achieved.

“It’s important to be humble. I’ve been trying to follow him (Pacquiao) by learning great things from him, not only inside the ring but also outside the squared-circle. He has impressed me in many ways,” Sor Rungvisai disclosed.

As Pacquiao’s inevitable exit from boxing looms, it appears that his successor will be in the person of Sor Rungvisai as the Thai’s international popularity widens akin to the Filipino’s meteoric rise to fame in the early 2000’s.

Should Pacquiao pass the baton to the celebrated Thai slugger as the next standard bearer of the Asian boxing scene, Sor Rungvisai assured that he is up to the responsibility.

“It’s truly an honor to be recognized around the globe. I am ready to be at my best and represent Asia the best I can,” he declared.

Sor Rungvisai returns to action on October 6, putting his WBC Super Flyweight World Championship on the line against Mexican challenger Iran “MagnifiKO” Diaz in the main event of ONE: KINGDOM OF HEROES.

“I am honored to be in this position, and I know millions of fans will be watching, which is why I have to give my best performance,” he said. “I can’t wait to climb into the ring again and showcase my talent in front of the whole world.”

GAB to get tough on Pacquiao

October 02, 2018

 

By

Ed Andaya

 

People's Tonight

WORLD boxing champion Manny Pacquiao will have to pass the necessary medical clearance before he can fight again.

Games and Amusement Board (GAB) Chairman Abraham "Baham" Mitra said Pacquiao, like all other professional boxers, will be asked  to submit a cardio-clearance from a reputable hospital before he can climb the ring again

"GAB, as  the government supervising and regulatory body, is mandated to check the phycical condition of the boxer and determine if he is fit to fight,” said  Mitra during his monthly session with officers of the Tabloid Organization in Philippine Sports (TOPS) at the GAB office in Makati.

“Wala pong exception dito. Lahat ng ating mga boxers ay sumasailalim sa nasabing proseso,” added Mitra.

"In case of Sen. Pacquiao, the  GAB will have to make sure he is fit to fight again since   “he  himself  admitted he underwent medical check up at the Cardinal Santos Hospital  due to shortness of breath just before his July 15 fight against Lucas Matthysse of Argentina.:

GAB Medical Department head  Dr. Redentor Viernes said GAB will ask for Pacquiao's permission to check   his  medical   record at the Cardinal Santos “since this is private in nature.”

“Nakagugulat talaga na inborn yung sakit ni Sen. Pacquiao. Sa tagal niya sa boksing,  na kung saan may halos 60 fights,  hindi mo iisipin na may ganun  siyang  sakit. Kailangan talaga masuri ng maigi,: said Dr. Viernes

No less than Pacquiao's two biggest allies --  President Duterte and  Ilocos Sur Gov. Chavit Singson--  have urged him  to seriously consider retirement soon, especially after reports of his heart condition surfaced.

Pacquiao is reportedly set to fight again either before the end of the year or early part of 2019 against a still-unnamed opponent.

Another report said the Filipino boxing legend is eyeing a rematch against undefeated American champion Floyd Mayweather before he finally hang up his gloves.

“Yung Pacquiao-Mayweather rematch -- maganda ito para sa boxing. Maganda ito para kay Pacquiao at sa ating bansa. Pero dapat matiyak muna  natin na maganda pa ang kanyang kundisyon at hindi sya malagay sa panganib,” added Mitra.

“Right now, Philippine boxing is doing well. We have regular meetings with  matchmakers and promoters. We are  discussing ways and means to  better uplift  the welfare of   boxers and  their families. And  aside from  Sen. Pacquiao, we have world-class fighters like Jerwin Ancajas, Donnie Nietes and Michael Dasmarinas.”

A Pay-Per-View rematch between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao is a very real prospect, according to Showtime boss Stephen Espinoza.

Despite media columns toning down coverage since Mayweather attempted to steal the spotlight from Canelo Alvarez v Gennady Golovkin during fight week, the fight is set to go down in the coming months.
