He debuted as a professional in the year 1995.

The kernel to the fruits of his success is that he’s the only fighter in the history of boxing who’s been an eight-division champion, and he’s still an active battler.

Manny is ranked as one of the greatest boxers of all time!

Currently in light training, Pacquiao is due to face Lucas Matthysse on June 23 in Malaysia.
