'''Manny Pacquiao''', sometimes known simply as "Pac Man," began his professional career in 1995 at the age of 16. He won his first eleven fights before running into [[Rustico Torrecampo]], who scored a [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Rustico Torrecampo|third-round KO]] over Pacquiao. In his 21st fight, Pacquiao knocked out [[Chokchai Chockvivat]] to win the [[OPBF]] flyweight title. In December of 1998, Pacquiao fought [[WBC]] flyweight champion [[Chatchai Sasakul]]. The champion, an elusive boxer and a good counter puncher, was knocked out by Pacquiao in round eight. Sasakul did not get up for several minutes. Pacquiao lost the title when he failed to make weight for his fight against [[Medgoen Singsurat]], which was to be his second title defense. Pacquiao went ahead with the fight but was [[Medgoen Singsurat vs. Manny Pacquiao|knocked out in the third round]] by Singsurat.
  
'''Manny Pacquiao''', sometimes known simply as "Pac Man," began his career in 1995, at age 16. He won his first couple of fights, before bumping into [[Rustico Torrecampo]], who scored a [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Rustico Torrecampo|third-round KO]] over Pacquiao. Pacquiao went forward with his career, before fighting [[Chokchai Chockvivat]] for the [[OPBF]] flyweight title. A few fights later in December of 1998, Pacquiao fought [[WBC]] flyweight champion [[Chatchai Sasakul]]. The bout was very even, the champion being elusive and a good counter puncher. Pacquiao won by KO in round eight, after which Sasakul did not get up for a few minutes. Pacquiao's next noteworthy assignment came when he fought [[Lehlohonolo Ledwaba]] for the [[IBF]] [[IBF Super Bantamweight Champion|122 lb title]]. Pacquiao came as a late sub on a few weeks notice and dominated the fight, [[Lehlohonolo Ledwaba vs. Manny Pacquiao|knocking out the champ in six rounds]]. Pacquiao made a string of IBF title defenses before moving up in weight and fighting [[Marco Antonio Barrera]]. Pacquiao boxed well and his southpaw style seemed to be troubling Barrera. Pacquiao knocked down Barrera three times in [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Marco Antonio Barrera (1st meeting)|this fight]]. Next Pacquiao fought [[Juan Manuel Marquez]]. Marquez was down three times in the first round. However, Marquez did come back to win many of the latter rounds and secure a [[Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Manny Pacquiao (1st meeting)|draw]]. Pacquiao was then signed for a match with [[Erik Morales]], at 130 pounds after a rematch with Marquez never materialized, because of Marquez demanding far too much money. In a candidate for Fight of the Year, Morales won a slim [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Erik Morales (1st meeting)|decision]] against Pacquiao, winning on all three judges scorecards by scores of 115-113.
+
Pacquiao moved up three weight classes to the 122-pound division. After six straight wins, he fought [[Lehlohonolo Ledwaba]] for the [[IBF]] [[IBF Super Bantamweight Champion|junior featherweight title]] in June of 2001. Pacquiao, a late substitute opponent, dominated Ledwaba, knocking out the champ in [[Lehlohonolo Ledwaba vs. Manny Pacquiao|six rounds]]. Pacquiao's next fight was a unification fight against WBO champion [[Agapito Sanchez]], which ended in a [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Agapito Sanchez|six-round technical decision draw]].  
  
He came back from the Morales defeat to [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Hector Velazquez|knockout]] [[Hector Velazquez]] in six rounds. In January 2006, Pacquiao scored one of the biggest victories of his career, when he stopped Erik Morales in the 10th round of their [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Erik Morales (2nd meeting)|rematch]], the first stoppage loss of Morales career.
+
In November 2003, Pacquiao moved up in weight and fought [[Marco Antonio Barrera]] for [[The Ring Magazine]] featherweight title. Pacquiao dropped Barrera three times in route to an [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Marco Antonio Barrera (1st meeting)|eleventh round TKO]]. Pacquiao next fought WBA/IBF featherweight champion [[Juan Manuel Marquez]]. Marquez was down three times in the first round. However, Marquez came back to win many of the later rounds and secure a [[Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Manny Pacquiao (1st meeting)|draw]]. Marquez turned down a rematch because he didn't like the purse he was offered, so Pacquiao moved up to the 130-pound division and fought [[Erik Morales]] in March of 2005. In a candidate for Fight of the Year, Morales won by a close [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Erik Morales (1st meeting)|decision]]. All three official judges scored the fight 115-113 for Morales. Pacquaio fought Morales twice in 2006, winning by a [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Erik Morales (2nd meeting)|tenth-round KO]] and a [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Erik Morales (3rd meeting)|third-round KO]], respectively. Pacquiao was named the 2008 Fighter of the Year by The Ring and [[Boxing Writers Association of America|BWAA]]. After winning a [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Marco Antonio Barrera (2nd meeting)|rematch]] with Barrera, Pacquiao fought Marquez for the WBC super featherweight title. In another great fight, Pacquiao won by a [[Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Manny Pacquiao (2nd meeting)|split decision]].  
  
Pacquiao is extraordinarily popular in the Philippines, where he is currently the most popular athlete in his country. Pacquiao has branched into acting in Filipino movies and various business ventures as well, including a number of commercial endorsements, seen almost everyday on local TV. Pacquiao carried his country's flag at the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympic games.
+
Pacquiao [[David Diaz vs. Manny Pacquiao|knocked out]] [[David Diaz]] in his next fight to win the WBC lightweight title and then moved up to welterweight to [[Oscar De La Hoya vs. Manny Pacquiao|fight]] [[Oscar De La Hoya]]. Pacquiao dominated De La Hoya, and the fight stopped after the eighth round. Pacquiao was again named Fighter of the Year by The Ring and BWAA. In 2009, Pacquiao [[Ricky Hatton vs. Manny Pacquiao|knocked out]] [[Ricky Hatton]] to win The Ring junior welterweight title and [[Miguel Angel Cotto vs. Manny Pacquiao|stopped]] [[Miguel Cotto]] to win the WBO welterweight title. Once again, he was named Fighter of the Year by The Ring and BWAA.

 +
Pacquiao became the first fighter to win world titles in eight weight divisions when he defeated [[Antonio Margarito]] by a one-sided [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Antonio Margarito|unanimous decision]] to win the vacant WBC super welterweight title in November of 2010. Pacquaio never defended the title. He vacated it and defended his WBO welterweight title with a lopsided [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Shane Mosley|unanimous decision]] against [[Shane Mosley]].

In November of 2011, Pacquaio had a rubber match with Marquez, winning by a close and controversial [[Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez (3rd meeting)|majority decision]].  In his next fight, Pacquiao was on the other end of a controversial decision, losing the WBO welterweight title to [[Timothy Bradley]] by a highly controversial [[split-decision]].

Professional Career

Manny Pacquiao, sometimes known simply as "Pac Man," began his professional career in 1995 at the age of 16. He won his first eleven fights before running into Rustico Torrecampo, who scored a third-round KO over Pacquiao. In his 21st fight, Pacquiao knocked out Chokchai Chockvivat to win the OPBF flyweight title. In December of 1998, Pacquiao fought WBC flyweight champion Chatchai Sasakul. The champion, an elusive boxer and a good counter puncher, was knocked out by Pacquiao in round eight. Sasakul did not get up for several minutes. Pacquiao lost the title when he failed to make weight for his fight against Medgoen Singsurat, which was to be his second title defense. Pacquiao went ahead with the fight but was knocked out in the third round by Singsurat.

Pacquiao moved up three weight classes to the 122-pound division. After six straight wins, he fought Lehlohonolo Ledwaba for the IBF junior featherweight title in June of 2001. Pacquiao, a late substitute opponent, dominated Ledwaba, knocking out the champ in six rounds. Pacquiao's next fight was a unification fight against WBO champion Agapito Sanchez, which ended in a six-round technical decision draw.

In November 2003, Pacquiao moved up in weight and fought Marco Antonio Barrera for The Ring Magazine featherweight title. Pacquiao dropped Barrera three times in route to an eleventh round TKO. Pacquiao next fought WBA/IBF featherweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez. Marquez was down three times in the first round. However, Marquez came back to win many of the later rounds and secure a draw. Marquez turned down a rematch because he didn't like the purse he was offered, so Pacquiao moved up to the 130-pound division and fought Erik Morales in March of 2005. In a candidate for Fight of the Year, Morales won by a close decision. All three official judges scored the fight 115-113 for Morales. Pacquaio fought Morales twice in 2006, winning by a tenth-round KO and a third-round KO, respectively. Pacquiao was named the 2008 Fighter of the Year by The Ring and BWAA. After winning a rematch with Barrera, Pacquiao fought Marquez for the WBC super featherweight title. In another great fight, Pacquiao won by a split decision.

Pacquiao knocked out David Diaz in his next fight to win the WBC lightweight title and then moved up to welterweight to fight Oscar De La Hoya. Pacquiao dominated De La Hoya, and the fight stopped after the eighth round. Pacquiao was again named Fighter of the Year by The Ring and BWAA. In 2009, Pacquiao knocked out Ricky Hatton to win The Ring junior welterweight title and stopped Miguel Cotto to win the WBO welterweight title. Once again, he was named Fighter of the Year by The Ring and BWAA.

Pacquiao became the first fighter to win world titles in eight weight divisions when he defeated Antonio Margarito by a one-sided unanimous decision to win the vacant WBC super welterweight title in November of 2010. Pacquaio never defended the title. He vacated it and defended his WBO welterweight title with a lopsided unanimous decision against Shane Mosley.

In November of 2011, Pacquaio had a rubber match with Marquez, winning by a close and controversial majority decision. In his next fight, Pacquiao was on the other end of a controversial decision, losing the WBO welterweight title to Timothy Bradley by a highly controversial split-decision.

Pacquiao fought Marquez for a fourth time in December of 2012. After being dropped in the third round, Pacquiao came back to drop Marquez in the fifth round. Pacquiao was winning the sixth round when he got nailed with a perfect right to the head. He went down to the canvas and was out cold. After three close fights, Marquez finally got a win in their great four-fight series.
