Manny - The amazing voice!!!

He was born on December 17th, 1978. We can't begin telling the story of Manny Pacquiao without examining the hard life of Manny Pacquiao. Manny worked in construction and also in the gym where he trained doing odd jobs which included janitor. Manny was undeterred and reeled of an eleven fight winning streak before tasting defeat for the very first time in 1996 vs Rustico Torrecampo who knocked Manny Pacquiao out. Finally Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao had reached one of his goals and it seemed his career was about to take off. He successfully defended his crown in the very next fight but his stint as flyweight champion was short lived as he got knocked out by Medgoen Singsurat in his second title defense. Marques was dropped three times in the first round and fought valiantly to get a draw. In the rematch Pacquiao was awarded what many considered a controversial win.

But the road to greatness is a rare opportunity and it is not paved without enormous sacrifice and dedication to one's prime goal in life.

That is what we want to learn from the life of Manny Pacquaio, whose greatness has truly become a source of permeating inspiration to people in the Philippines. It is easy to admire Manny because his boxing exploits have a global appeal. He is not just popular in Philippine islands, Manny is definitely a sport icon to the rest of the world.

Becoming like Manny is no easy dream. To even think of it is a painstaking mental process. Many of us aspire to be great. That is what we want to learn from the life of Manny Pacquaio, whose greatness has truly become a source of permeating inspiration to people in the Philippines. Becoming like Manny is no easy dream. To even think of it is a painstaking mental process. How could one achieve what our boxing hero has achieved? Manny's attitude can unlock the secrets of his greatness. A frightening face is what you see in most boxing champions whenever they climb up the ring. But that is not what we see in Manny's. Despite his unprecedented stature and despite the fact that he is tremendously adored and feared of, Manny never loses the face of a happy schoolboy.

Before all the glory and riches were ever bestowed upon the star boxer, this ambitious young man who would one day become the Philippines's most iconic figure was simply a young boy looking to survive the streets that brought him into this world. As a young boy, Pacquiao was already learning how to fight for his life, not in the ring but in the streets. His early childhood was not about winning boxing matches, becoming a world champion, or rising to become the Philippines most endearing and beloved iconic figure. Humbled by poverty, he always held a tight bond with his family and his devotion to God as a Roman Catholic to help him survive through the early years of hardship and hunger. Rising from humble beginnings, Manny used to sell a Filipino bread name pandesal in street corners to help his family survive starvation.

His mother Dionisia raised Manny, after his father left them along with 5 other children, and two of them were from his mother's previous marriage.
