Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao Sr, more famously known as Manny Pacquiao, is a Filipino politician and former professional boxer and is considered one of the greatest professional boxers of all time. His nickname is ‘PacMan’ and he previously served as a Senator of the Philippines from 2016 to 2022.
He is the only eight-division world champion in the history of boxing and has won 12 prestigious world titles. He was also the first boxer to win the lineal championship in five different weight classes, the first to win major titles in four of the eight ‘glamour divisions’ and is the only boxer to hold championships across four decades in the 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and 2020s.
Manny will be touring across the UK next year where there will be exclusive interviews with the boxing star as well as a three-course meal, an orchestra performance and an auction. During this event, visitors will learn all about his life story: “When I was younger, I became a fighter because I had to survive. I had nothing. I had no one to depend on except myself. I realised that boxing was something I was good at, and I trained hard so that I could keep myself and my family alive.”
