Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao aka Manny Pacquiao as he is known worldwide is currently the only boxer to win nine world titles in seven different weight divisions. He has given pride and glory to the Philippines for winning against much greater opponents in the boxing ring. He started as an underdog and rose to be the No. 1 Boxer in the World today. He has been named "Fighter of the Decade" by the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) and also "Fighter of the Year" in 2006, 2008, and 2009 by BWAA and Ring Magazine.
He has done a lot of public service in his hometown before he decided to enter politics. Now as congressman of Sarangani Province, he will have the change again to prove his worth as an idol to many Filipinos. And now he has to face again a challenge in his life in order to uphold the pride of the Philippines. He may have to fight harder in achieving this goal against a much bigger opponent Antonio Margarito. Margarito is taller at 5'11" with a 73 inch reach against Pacquiao who is at 5'6" with 67 inch reach. Clearly Margarito has this advantage but know for sure Pacquiao has a few tricks up on his sleeves (or gloves for this matter).
Good luck to the World's No. 1 Boxer and Idol of us Filipinos. You make us proud!
