There has been much speculation and many stories written on the superstar Manny Pacquiao. Will your bet be safe on him to be the world’s boxing champion one day? What are his business dealings and does he have a criminal record? I will answer these questions and many others as you read this.
In the last six years, there have been many articles about Manny Pacquiao. He is on the Howard Stern Show and many other talk shows and the amount of press he receives continues to grow every year.
Although he did not compete in a fight for six years, he has not appeared in a television fight in over a decade. He is not a professional fighter or even a professional boxer. However, he has made a name for himself as an actor and celebrity.
Acting Business Superstar
It is believed that before he entered the acting business, he became a boxer and won the WBO title. The WBO is the WBC world championship and is the only world title he is in with. He then hosts his own reality show, “The Contender.” While this was well received by the boxing public, it did not do him any good in his career.
The next step in the Manny Pacquiao story is to find out what his involvement with the boxing world was. Many of his movies, such as “Rumble in the Bronx”, helps some of the best trainers in the business. However, if you search for his records you will see that all of his boxing accomplishments are successful after he came into the boxing world.
One question that may pop up in your mind is why does he keep his name out there and give out these stories to the public if he is not really a boxer? The reason is that he has been a successful actor and celebrity and continues to use his name as a marketing tool to promote his upcoming movie “Aquaman.”
This goes back to his use of his name as a marketing tool and gives him the right to promote himself, his image, and his brand. Just like a car salesman will use his name in the car salespeople and promotions and like any other businessman who uses his name.
Another question people have about Manny Pacquiao and his career is how long did he train for the Olympics? His training took a couple of years and he only managed to win one medal. He was disqualified for what appears to be using illegal methods in his attempts to throw his opponents off balance.
While he is the champ of his weight class and all fighters agree that it took a long time to get the “know-how” to beat his opponents, many also believe that Manny Pacquiao’s conditioning was extremely poor. His coach, Freddie Roach was so disappointed with the way he trained that he resigned himself to losing and leaving the team.
If you go online and take a look at the interview I did with Manny Pacquiao, you will learn many of the things that people are unaware of in his career. One thing that you will hear is that he actually lived with his mother and played baseball in school.
His trainer and mentor from college are calling Freddie Roach and he actually lives close to the home of Manny Pacquiao. Manny spends time working with Roach and actually trains with the team.
When you read all the articles written about the superstar Manny Pacquiao and other people say that he has had a rocky career, but it is too bad because he is a great athlete and I believe that he can become the greatest boxer that ever lived. He could make his dreams come true and possibly become the world’s boxing champion someday.
