Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao, professionally known as Manny Pacquiao is a 40-year old politician and professional boxer. He had given a lot of recognitions in the Philippines as one of the greatest professional boxers of all time according to many boxing historians. He is the only eight-division world champion in the history of boxing, having won twelve major world titles, as well as being the first boxer to win the lineal championship in five different weight classes. He is also the first boxer in history to win major world titles in four of the eight “glamour divisions” of boxing: flyweight, featherweight, lightweight, and welterweight.
No wonder that a lot of people really admire him so much because of his amazing skills and generosity to many people. As a matter of fact, the boxing trunks that he used on his victorious fight with the American boxer Keith Thurman last July 20 for the WBA welterweight title. Pacquiao’s trunk was sold at an auction for almost P1.3 million pesos!
He dedicated his fight for ALS awareness or those people experiencing Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. That is why his white boxing trunks was recently auctioned and sold for a charity cause.
It was last on last Thursday, August 1 when Charity Buzz and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” held the auction for the Philippine’s pride Manny Pacquiao and they were able to raise the bid up to almost P1.3 million peso or $24,750. The money that will be collected from the said auction will be given to a non-profit organization fighting agaisnt ALS.
Before Manny’s fight he had also posted on his social media account in July 19 that he will be dedicating his fight for the ALS awareness of people. Now that he had won over the American boxer, he is now recognized as the oldest man to win the welterweight world title. He was known to be very generous and kind-hearted and very eager to help those people in need. That is why he even ventured into politics to help many people and for public service as well.
