Happy birthday Manny Pacquiao!

By Vitali Shaposhnikov: Thirty two years ago, in Kibawe, Bukidnon, Philippines, a legend was born to parents Rosalio Pacquiao and Dionesia Dapidran-Pacquiao. Born Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao, he was later dubbed Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao. His latest political success added yet another professional name to his achievements: Congressman Pacquiao.

Little did his family know in 1978, that their baby boy was to become an eight division world boxing champion, fighter of the decade, and The Ring magazine fighter of the year. Rated number one pound-for-pound boxer in the world, Manny is also a singer, producer, actor, and a politician. Amongst everything that is going on in his professional life, Pacquiao is also a husband to Maria Geraldine “Jinkee” Jamora, and an outstanding father to his four kids.

He has achieved a lot in his thirty two years, and I think he is far from being done. His political career has only begun, while his boxing career is going steadily growing. With his exceptional drive for perfection, and his unrelenting work rate, I can safely say we have yet to see this man peak in his life achievements.

Let’s wish Congressman Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao a great birthday celebration, and thank him for everything that he has done for his family, fans, and country. Happy Birthday Manny!
