Pacman Did It Again!

Manny Pacquaio once again did the country proud today as he battled it out with Miguel Cotto, and won the match. The nation watched in awe as the world stood in amazement.

The phenomenal rise of Pacman, as he fondly called, is not only because of his skill as a boxer but also as a great influencer. Everything stands still every time he has a fight.

Thus, it’s good to remember how Pacman became what he is today. Thanks to Time Magazine for putting out The Rise of Manny Pacquiao.
