Manny Pacquiao’s son recorded his first amateur fight victory
“PacMan” retired from the sport of boxing in 2021 after a loss to Yordenis Ugas. However, Pacquiao’s name is set to carry on in the sport for years to come, thanks to his son who recently made his debut.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Pacquiao Jr. recently launched his amateur career with a victory. The 43-year-old son made his debut in a three-round 140-pound (junior welterweight) contest.
The youngster’s career took off a bit slowly, however, all of his hard work was on display when he picked up a hard-fought victory in his maiden fight. Pacquiao Jr. also showed a lot of resemblance to his father in his moves.
After his son’s win, “PacMan” took to Instagram to celebrate. The 43-year-old praised his son for his fine performance and noted how proud he was. He said:
“Congratulations to my son @pacquiao.emmanuel for fighting and winning his first American amateur fight at junior welterweight! I’m so proud of you. #TeamPacquiao”
