There's no blood relation between the two, I don't even think Manny idolized Elorde because of the age gap between the two. In an interview Pacman said, "Becoming the first Asian boxer to win four titles should be enough to inspire me". Pacquiao should also emphasize that he is to become the first Filipino to win the 135 lb championship after the failed attempts of especially the great Flash Elorde. If Manny succeds in this one as we all know he would, he will do a favor to Elorde and his fans, and to all Filipinos for finally getting that coveted and prestigious belt fo the country...
