Early life and amateur career

[19] His parents separated when he was in sixth grade, after his father had an affair. [19] He is the fourth of six siblings, one of whom, Alberto "Bobby" Pacquiao, is also a politician and former professional boxer.

Pacquiao completed his elementary education at Saavedra Saway Elementary School in General Santos City, but dropped out of high school due to extreme poverty. [20] At the age of 12, Pacquiao was introduced to boxing a by his maternal uncle Sardo Mejia. According to his autobiography, Pacquiao said watching Mike Tyson's defeat to James "Buster" Douglas in 1990 with his Uncle Sardo as an experience that, "changed my life forever." His early interest in combat sports was also inspired by martial-artist Bruce Lee and the boxer Muhammad Ali. [21] [22]

In 1990, Mejia began training his nephew in a makeshift home gym. After 6 months of training, Pacquiao began boxing in a park in General Santos eventually traveling to other cities to fight higher-ranked opponents. By age 15, he was considered the best junior boxer in the southern Philippines. [23] At the age of 15, he moved to Manila. In January 1995, at the age of 16, he made his professional boxing debut as a junior flyweight. [24]

In February 2007, Pacquiao took and passed a high school equivalency exam, and was awarded with a high school diploma by the Department of Education. [25]

Early years

Pacquiao was introduced to boxing at the age of 12 by his maternal Uncle Sardo Mejia. According to his autobiography, Pacquiao said watching Mike Tyson's defeat of James "Buster" Douglas in 1990 with his Uncle Sardo as an experience that, "changed my life forever." Mejia began training his nephew in a makeshift home gym. After 6 months of training, Pacquiao began boxing in a park in General Santos eventually traveling to other cities to fight higher-ranked opponents.

In January 1995, at the age of 16, he made his professional boxing debut as a junior flyweight. [24]

Pacquiao stated of his early years, "Many of you know me as a legendary boxer, and I'm proud of that. However, that journey was not always easy. 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 realized that boxing was something I was good at, and I trained hard so that I could keep myself and my family alive." [32]

On December 4, 1998, at the age of 19, he won his first major title, the World Boxing Council (WBC) flyweight title. [24]

House of Representatives

On February 12, 2007, Pacquiao announced his campaign for a seat in the Philippine House of Representatives to represent the 1st District of South Cotabato province running as a candidate of the Liberal Party faction under Manila mayor Lito Atienza. [40] Pacquiao, said he was persuaded to run by the local officials of General Santos City, hoping he would act as a bridge between their interests and the national government. [40] Ultimately Pacquiao was forced to run under the Kabalikat ng Malayang Pilipino (KAMPI), a pro-Arroyo political party by the courts. Pacquiao was defeated in the election by incumbent Rep. Darlene Antonino-Custodio of the Nationalist People's Coalition (NPC), who said, "More than anything, I think, people weren't prepared to lose him as their boxing icon." [41]

In preparation for his political career in the Filipino House of Representatives, Pacquiao enrolled in the Certificate Course in Development, Legislation, and Governance at the Development Academy of the Philippines – Graduate School of Public and Development Management (DAP-GSPDM). [42]

[53] [54] De Lima has been a member of the opposition in the Senate of the 17th and 18th Congress of the Philippines and a critic of Duterte, investigating Duterte of suspected extrajudicial killings in his War on Drugs prior to her arrest. [54] Meanwhile, in another Senate hearing, Pacquiao defended then-Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte from allegations of having a part, along with his alleged drinking buddy Charlie Tan and Kenneth Dong, in a 2017 seized 6.4-billion shipment of illegal drugs from Xiamen, China into the Philippines. [55]

During the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak of 2020, Pacquiao teamed up with Alibaba Group co-founder Jack Ma to help bring some much-needed relief to the Philippines. [56] The Bureau of Customs has facilitated the release of more than 50,000 COVID-19 test kits from the charity foundations of the two. [57]

Pacquiao has endorsed politicians outside the Philippines, in particular his secondary home country in the United States, as he endorsed Nevada senator Harry Reid and California governor Jerry Brown in November 2010. [58] Pacquiao also endorsed Republican Duke Aiona for Hawaii governor in 2014. [59]

[78] Pacquiao was also included by Forbes in its annual Celebrity 100 list for the year 2009, joining Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie and fellow athletes Woods and Bryant. [79]

Forbes also listed Pacquiao as the world's equal sixth highest paid athlete, with a total of $40 million or 2 billion pesos (₱2,000,000,000.00) from the second half of 2008 to the first half of 2009.

He leaves the Philippines to make it even bigger, conquering the world again and again to bring back riches to his family and friends." [84] Pacquiao became the eighth Filipino to grace the cover of the prestigious magazine, after former Philippine presidents Manuel L. Quezon, Ramon Magsaysay, Ferdinand Marcos, Corazon Aquino, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III and Filipino actress and environmentalist Chin Chin Gutierrez. Pacquiao was also featured on the cover of Reader's Digest Asia, where a seven-page story was written about the Filipino boxing superstar. The issue came out in November 2008, before Pacquiao's epic match against De La Hoya.

Pacquiao is also mentioned in some hip hop tracks including Kool A.D.'s song entitled "Manny Pacquiao" on his mixtape, 51 . A few notable ones are Pitbull's "Get It Started", A$AP Rocky's "Phoenix", Bad Meets Evil and Bruno Mars' "Lighters", Eminem and Skylar Grey's "Asshole", Future's "Never Gon' Lose", Migos' "Chinatown", Nicki Minaj and Ciara's "I'm Legit" and Rick Ross's "High Definition", to name a few. [85]

Controversies

Tax evasion

On November 26, 2013, a few days after Pacquiao's victory over Brandon Ríos, the Philippine Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) issued a freeze order on all of Pacquiao's Philippine bank accounts due to his alleged failure to pay ₱2.2 billion in taxes for earnings he made in his fights in the United States from 2008 to 2009. A day after the bank account freeze, the BIR also issued an order to freeze all of Pacquiao's Philippine properties, whereupon Pacquiao presented documents to the press showing the income tax for non-resident alien payment by his promoter to the BIR's US counterpart, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), as well as a letter from Bob Arum. [86] In April 2017, Pacquiao, now a senator, approached Philippine authorities in an attempt to settle the case. The BIR had maintained that taxes were due even if all taxes had been paid to the IRS in the first place. [87]

Homosexuality comments

In February 2016, Pacquiao, in a video statement posted by TV5, made a comment on the issue of same-sex marriage. Pacquiao, in vernacular, described people in same-sex marriages as behaving worse than animals because, he said, animals generally do not have same-sex mating. [88] LGBT celebrities including comedian Vice Ganda, singer Aiza Seguerra, TV host Boy Abunda and the party-list Ladlad criticized the statements of the senatorial candidate. Pacquiao later apologized and stated that while, as a Christian, he is still against same-sex marriage, which he said is against Biblical teachings, he did not condemn gay people themselves. [89] Nike ended their longtime partnership with Pacquiao, stating his comments against gay people were abhorrent. [90] The Grove at Farmers Market in Los Angeles also banned Pacquiao from the shopping mall. [91]

Towards the end of the video, Pacquiao clarified that he is not condemning gay people.

...but I am not condemning them, just the marriage which is a sin against God.

Continuation of Manny Pacquiao's stand on same-sex marriage in a video statement by TV5 posted later on February 19, 2016. [92]

Disclosure of injury

It was revealed following Mayweather vs. Pacquiao that Pacquiao had sustained an undisclosed injury to his right shoulder while training and that while it had healed in time for the fight, he re-injured it during the 4th round. As of 2015, Pacquiao is currently facing a lawsuit of 5 million dollars filed against him by two fans for failing to disclose the shoulder injury in the lead up to his bout with Floyd Mayweather. [93] Pacquiao failed to disclose the injury to the Nevada State Athletic Commission in the pre-fight injury evaluation. [94] [95] The commission did a standard injury report with Pacquiao filling out the form saying that he had no injuries heading into the bout. Pacquiao said he had sustained the injury weeks out from the fight against Mayweather. However, after the lawsuit from the two fans was filed against him, Pacquiao has since said that he sustained the injury during the fight in which it flared up in the 3rd round. [96]

The Nevada State Athletic Commission stated at the post fight press conference that they had only just found out about Pacquiao's injury that evening at the post fight press conference. Speculation arose that the injury was an excuse for the loss to Mayweather because Pacquiao did not mention an injury in the post fight interview with Max Kellerman. Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum stated that Pacquiao suffered the injury back in 2008, causing even more confusion as Pacquiao, now facing a lawsuit, had just previously stated that he suffered the injury during the fight. [97]

Personal life

Pacquiao married Jinkee Jamora on May 10, 1999. [2] Together, they have five children, Emmanuel Jr. (Jimuel), Michael Stephen, Mary Divine Grace (Princess), Queen Elizabeth (Queenie) and Israel. His first son, Jimuel, is an amateur boxer, [98] while his second son, Michael, is a rapper. [99] His daughter, Queenie, was born in the United States. He resides in his hometown of General Santos City, South Cotabato, Philippines. [100] However, as a congressman of the lone district of Sarangani, he is officially residing in Kiamba, Sarangani, the hometown of his wife.

On December 11, 2019, Pacquiao graduated from University of Makati with a bachelor's degree in political science; majoring in local government administration through the Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP) of the Philippine Councilors League-Legislative Academy (PCCLA) which allows qualified Filipinos to complete a collegiate-level education via informal education system. [101] [102]

Raised in the Catholic faith, [103] Pacquiao is currently a practicing Evangelical Protestant. [104] [105] [106] Pacquiao said he once had a dream where he saw a pair of angels and heard the voice of God this dream convinced him to become a devout believer. [107]

In April 2021, Pacquiao spoke out about the ongoing racially-motivated attacks on Asian-Americans in the United States and challenged those who engaged in racist attacks to fight him instead of their victims. He went on to state that "[We] have one color in our Blood! ( sic ). Stop discriminating!" and finalized his statement with capitalized "Peace and love to everyone." [108]

Awards and recognitions

On February 18, 2009, Pacquiao was conferred the Honorary Degree of Doctor of Humanities (Honoris Causa) by Southwestern University (SWU) at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel & Casino in Lahug, Cebu City in recognition of his boxing achievements and humanitarian work. [109]
