Manny Pacquiao

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao was born on December 17, 1978 in Kibawe, Bukidnon, Philippines. He currently carries a record of 57-5-2 with 38 knockouts.


“Pacman” was the first boxer in history to win eight titles throughout eight different weight divisions. He was named "Fighter of the Decade" for the 2000’s by the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA). He is also a three-time BWAA and The Ring "Fighter of the Year" in 2006, 2008 and 2009.


Aside from being a boxer, Pacquiao has participated in acting, music recording and politics. In May of 2010, Pacquiao was elected to the House of Representatives in the 15th Congress of the Philippines, representing the province of Sarangani.


Pacquiao began his pro career in January of 1995, officially weighing at the junior flyweight level (106-108 pounds). He lost for the first time in his 12th bout by knockout to Rustico Torrecampo.


In his 27th bout, in December of ’98, Pacquiao won his first world title, the WBC flyweight belt, knocking out Chatchai Sasakul. Less than a year later, he would suffer his second loss to Medgoen Singsurat by knockout, losing his world title.


Pacquiao jumped up to super bantamweight where he would win the WBC International title. He made five successful defenses before winning the IBF super bantamweight belt in June of 2001 against Lehlohonolo Ledwaba by knockout.


In November of ’03, Pacquiao moved up to featherweight to take on Marco Antonio Barrera. Pacquiao’s career took off as he stopped the world’s top featherweight while taking The Ring Magazine world title.


In his next bout, in April of ’04, Pacquiao faced Juan Manuel Marquez for the WBA and IBF featherweight belts. The contest ended in a controversial twelve-round draw which enraged both camps.


In March of ’05, Pacquiao took on Erik Morales in a super featherweight contest, but he lost by a unanimous decision. The loss was avenged ten months later by knockout. Another ten months later, they fought a third time, and Pacquiao scored another knockout.


A year later, in October of ’07, Pacquiao faced Barrera in a rematch and won by a clear unanimous decision.


In March of ’08, Pacquiao faced Marquez in a rematch, this time for the WBC super featherweight title. Pacquiao won by a controversial split decision.


Next, Pacquiao went up to lightweight and faced WBC champ David Diaz. Pacquiao battered Diaz en route to a knockout victory.


In December of ’08, Pacquiao moved up to welterweight and stopped Oscar De La Hoya.


Then, in May of ’09, Pacquiao faced top junior welterweight Ricky Hatton and won by a brutal second-round knockout.


In November of ’09, Pacquiao went back to welterweight where he stopped Miguel Cotto to win the WBO welterweight belt.


Pacquiao defended the WBO title in March of ‘10 as he defeated Joshua Clottey by a dull one-sided unanimous decision.


Then, in November of ‘10, Pacquiao defeated Antonio Margarito to win the WBC super welterweight belt.


In May of ‘11, Pacquiao retained his WBO 147-pound belt by defeating Shane Mosley in a dull one-sided bout that ended as a unanimous decision. Like Clottey in March of last year, Mosley remained on defense for the majority of the contest.


Next, in November of ‘11, Pacquiao faced Marquez for a third time in hopes of finally putting an end to all the controversy stemming from their previous bouts. Instead, Pacquiao would walk away with a highly controversial majority decision win.


Pacquiao faced top junior welterweight Tim Bradley in June of ‘12. Despite being in command through most of the contest, Pacquiao lost by a highly controversial split decision.


In December of ’12, in a fourth meeting with Juan Manuel Marquez, Pacquiao was knocked out in the 6th round.


Pacquiao rebounded from two consecutive losses in November of ‘13 by easily defeating Brandon Rios via unanimous decision.


In April of ‘14, Pacquiao faced Tim Bradley in a rematch and defeated him by a unanimous decision to regain his WBO welterweight title.


Last November, Pacquiao defeated Chris Algieri to retain his WBO belt.
