Default WAR! (The Manny Pacquiao Tribute)

Below is an entertaining compilation video of one of the most exciting fighters in recent history, Manny Pacquiao…

Pacquiao’s success is obviously impressive, but it is even more impressive when you consider the impoverished world that he lived in as a youngster.

As quoted from a past LA Weekly article:

+++++

“The floor of his house was made of dirt. The walls were thatched. His entire family of seven squatted in the house, small as a prison cell, sleeping on cardboard boxes…

Pacquiao dropped out of elementary school to sell doughnuts, ice water and fish he caught from the sea. One day in 1990, watching television, he saw the invincible Mike Tyson fall to James “Buster” Douglas, and fell in love with boxing. The underdog can win, he learned. He punched a rubber flip-flop tied around the trunk of a palm tree. He imagined himself a champion. He was 11 years old.

At 14, he ran away from home, from sleepy General Santos City in the lawless southern tip of the Philippines, a rusty, run-down town lost in time. He stowed away on a ship bound for the megacity Manila. Before boxing training in the afternoon, he welded steel at a factory, then used his weekly pay to buy flowers, which he would sell on the streets for twice the price. At 16, he turned pro, a gangly 106 pounds. He fought like a mad dog, wild and out of control.”

+++++

If there was ever a rags to riches story in boxing, Manny Pacquiao’s name should be at the top of the list.
