#SugodManny: 7 Moments That Had Us Cheering for Pacquiao
Now's the time to cheer your loudest for the People's Champ.
Let’s admit it: We Pinoys are rabid boxing fans. And anything our People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao does inside the ring and even off of it is reason enough for us to shout our loudest cheers. Manny’s forthcoming megafight against Floyd Mayweather—as early as when we first confirmed it—has had us rooting for our own more than ever.
If Manny's recent accomplishments are any indication, it looks like everything is in his favor on Sunday, May 3rd. But until the fight is done and a decision is made, here are seven moments in Manny’s career that have had us shouting #SugodManny! Consider these our rehearsal for his victory.
1. When Manny and Floyd Mayweather appeared at their fight's press conference and gave us a preview of what boxing fans the world over have been clamoring all along.
2. When Manny made beating Chris Algieri to the ground look like child's play. The ring is indeed his playground.
3. When Manny added another feather in his cap and played professional basketball. You gotta admit the excitement you felt as he entered the court.
4. When Manny fought pillow-style with former Miss USA Erin Brady. The tough champion has a soft side, after all. (#SugodJinkee!)
5. When Manny made an impact on Ricky Hatton with a full-on KO in the second round!
6. When Manny was finally able to avenge his 2012 loss to Timothy Bradley—a fight many believe he won in the first place. Every jab in that rematch felt more special.
7. When Manny and Mayweather faced each other for the first time this year. You really cannot help but shout #SugodManny!
