The first major biography of Manny "Pac-Man" Pacquiao--the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world and the only boxer to ever win seven world championships
From the Publisher:
Manny Pacquiao, 31, was recently named “Fighter of the Decade” by the Boxing Writers’ Association and is the only fighter ever to capture seven championship belts in seven different weight classes. But few could have imagined that Pacquiao would have ever reached the pinnacle of his sport, considering his background. He ran away from home—a cardboard shack in General Santos City in the Philippines—at age fourteen. After making his way to Manila, and eventually the United States, Pacquiao hooked up with trainer Freddie Roach in 2001, and, from there, his fighting career took off.

Named one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” last year, the aptly nicknamed Pac-Man is a fascinating figure who will go down as one of the greatest boxers in history.

Annotation:
Manny Pacquiao, at 32, has already accomplished something no one else in boxing has ever achieved: ten world titles in eight different weight divisions. As a boxing icon, he inhabits the rarified atmosphere of past giants such as Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson, and Roberto Duran (no one shares the air that Muhammed Ali breathes). By no means the only fighter to have gone from poverty to prominence, the Pacman stands out because he has continually assumed responsibilities far beyond his age, from helping to support his family in the Philippines by working even as a young child to serving as a role model through his work ethic and charitable activities. His story is both heartfelt and inspiring.
