Default Pacquiao: Former Kickboxer - Rumor or Fact?

In Pacquiao's most recent HBO Highlight reel, Jim Lampley mentions that Pacquiao went from "Tiny Kickboxer to Flyweight boxer". Does anyone know if this true? I haven't seen any concrete evidence of this.

Yeah I believe it's just a rumor. He might have practiced it before but there is no concrete proof that he fought as a kickboxer. This isn't even mentioned in his biography. It just mentions that Pac started boxing at a really young age and used it to get by.

Manny has openly said he wasn't, I believe its in his bio too.

I believe it all stemmed from a reality show in Philippines called Extra Challenge.




Here is the video from the show
