Overview

Pound for pound, Manny is the best boxer in the world, but even more important than holding that distinction, Manny has connected with the people of his home country, the Philippines, to the point where he is almost like a god. --Lennox Lewis, former heavyweight boxer and HBO commentator Pacman is Manny's miracle story - his autobiography. Born and raised in an impoverished village in the Philippines, Manny began his life on the ropes. He provided for his family of five in his pre-boxing life by selling practically anything and everything on the streets just to help his family survive. The hard work, determination, and sheer grit that would characterize him as a boxer showed through in a big way during these early years. Though he dreamed of being a priest, his mother could not afford the education, so he soon found another way to move heaven and earth: boxing. According to the New York Times, Manny is pound-for-pound the best fighter in the world today. His rags-to-riches story will inspire you.

    Chapter 1 dairy of david kingman

    Dear diary.
    It is the end of the weekend of mourning for aunt ruth.but it is thankfully christmas break at school so I do not have to go.I do love school,I really do,but after break we are moving to roundrock,texas. I bet the nake fun of jews there. We are moving into a mansion instead of our cramped apartment.see,my dad came up with a sort of a tablet that can be whatever size so you can put a laptop in your pocket.it hass some cool games to.but now we are moving away from our city,away from the memories of aunt ruth and aaway from the statue of the horse.Away from my friends away from nice temples away from my bedroom,the walls that had been drawn on so long ago.And I knoe its a mansion but this apartment has memories and I love memories.I carry them with me on my heart,and the small pictures in my wallet of so long ago.before I knew about death,before I knew about how hard it is to be a jew,before I knew about drunkards.Before I knew that it didnt matter who or where you were,people like the taxi driver are always there.But I know diary,that you are bot drunk.you would never betray me for beer.you wouldnt kill anyone,especially aunt ruth

    Bye
    David kingman

    I'm a FILIPINO, and Manny Pacman Pacquaio has always been an inspiration to most of us.
    His faith to God an determination always inspire the Filipino Youth to hold on despite of  the poverty they are going through.
    Pacquiao isn't just a boxer here. Infact, he is a Congressman of his province too; the province where his experiences built the
    "BEST BOXER OF THE WORLD". A must read for the OPTIMISTIC people to be inpipred more (You'll appreciate this) and mostly to the
    PESSIMISTIC people so that you'll have something to hope for. Proud to be Filipino, Proud to be Pinoy.
