On December 17, 1978, Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao was born to Dionesia Dapidran-Pacquiao and Rosalio Pacquiao. He was raised in Kibawe, which is located in Mindanao’s Bukidnon province.
Pacquiao left his family as a teenager and boarded a ship to Manila, Philippines, in the hopes of training as a boxer and launching a career in the sport. Soon after, in January 1995, he stepped into the ring for his first professional fight, against Edmund Ignacio, at the age of 16. Pacquiao won the fight by unanimous decision after four rounds. The victory launched him on a successful boxing career that lasted nearly two decades.
Pacquiao defeated Chatchai Sasakul of Thailand in December 1998 to win the World Boxing Council flyweight title, his first major championship. Moving up in weight, he won the International Boxing Federation junior featherweight title in 2001 with a sixth-round technical knockout of Lehlo Ledwaba. In the years since, he has won several high-profile fights, claiming world titles in a total of eight different weight divisions.
Ten years after his victory over Sasakul, Pacquiao was declared the winner of an eight-round non-title welterweight bout against famed American boxer Oscar De La Hoya in December 2008. The fight generated nearly $70 million in revenue from pay-per-view viewers, which has been the broadcasting format for the majority of Pacquiao’s fights since the early 2000s.
Pacquiao went on to fight Ricky Hatton of the United Kingdom in a light welterweight division bout in Las Vegas in May 2009. Pacquiao won by knockout in the second round, capturing The Ring’s junior welterweight title. Later that year, in November, he defeated Puerto Rico’s Miguel Cotto in a 12-round fight for the World Boxing Organization welterweight title, which he defended in 2010, when he outlasted Ghanaian boxer Joshua Clottey.
Pacquiao was defeated by American boxer Timothy Bradley in a 12-round fight on June 9, 2012, by a 115-113 decision by three judges. Pacquiao had won seven rounds to Bradley’s five in the fight, which was a huge upset for boxing fans. Thousands of fans worldwide tuned in to watch the fight, which was broadcast on pay-per-view. The judges’ decision sparked widespread debate, with both critics and fans arguing that Pacquiao should have been declared the winner.
Pacquiao was defeated again in December of that year. Juan Manuel Marquez knocked him out in the sixth round of their welterweight fight in Las Vegas. According to the New York Daily News, Pacquiao explained his defeat by saying, “I just got hit by a punch I didn’t see.”
Pacquiao’s flawless footwork, speed, and lightning-fast jabs have kept boxing fans on their feet. And his endearing smile, charm, and chiseled physique have only added to his popularity. He was named Person of the Year in the Philippines in 2003, defeating President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. Among other honors, he was named “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000s by the Boxing Writers Association of America.
Following a victory over Brandon Rios in November 2013, Pacquiao defeated Bradley in an April 2014 rematch to reclaim the WBO welterweight title. In November, he defeated Chris Algieri for his third consecutive victory.
Pacquiao was scheduled to fight undefeated American Floyd Mayweather on May 2, 2015, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The long-awaited bout between the era’s two signature boxers, billed as the “Fight of the Century,” brought in a record purse via gate receipts and pay-per-view purchases. Pacquiao battled Mayweather despite an injured right shoulder, but was unable to land many effective punches. He was defeated unanimously, bringing his record to 57-6-2.
Following another defeat to Australia’s Jeff Horn in July 2017, it appeared that the former champion’s boxing career was coming to an end. Pacquiao, however, returned to the ring after a year off with a seventh-round knockout of Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse, demonstrating that he remained a formidable presence in the ring.
Politics and Entertainment
Pacquiao made his first foray into politics in 2007, when he ran for a seat in the Philippine House of Representatives. He was defeated by incumbent Rep. Darlene Antonino-Custodio and has since returned to his full-time boxing career. Pacquiao, on the other hand, formed a new Filipino political party, the People’s Champ Movement, and ran for a legislative seat again in 2009. In May 2010, he easily defeated opponent Roy Chiongbian to become the Sarangani province representative.
Pacquiao won a second term three years later after running unopposed for reelection, and in 2016, the boxing legend used his popularity to win a seat as a senator in the Philippines.
Pacquiao has demonstrated his vocal abilities in addition to his athletic and political careers by releasing two albums and collaborating on other tracks. He has appeared in several films and was the star of the Philippine sitcom Show Me Da Manny from 2009 to 2011. Manny, a documentary about his life, premiered in the United States in early 2015.
Jinkee Pacquiao, Pacquiao’s wife, was elected vice governor of Sarangani in 2013. They have a total of five children.
