Guys, I still remember when Manny fought Ledwaba, His alias was still THE DESTROYER..?

I know someone here in PACLAND knows who really gave Manny the nickname PACMAN.....

Let us do the reserch guys... We, Paclanders should know it...

I hope Pareng Brad C. can help us ?

And our idol should provide a prize to the paclander who can give the correct answer.

Something like a trivia contest?

Peace.

It was the American media (not sure exactly which) or Buffer. They gave the nick to Pac when they were still having a hard time pronouncing Pacquaio.

I will give my wild guess, BUFFER.

I hope somebody close to the Pacman read this tread and whoever got the correct answer should be given a prize like a PACLAND t-shirt or a Pacman Jacket or a boxing glove with the signature of our idol Manny Pacquiao....

What do you think guys?
