Manny Pacquiao has gone through lots of struggles prior to gaining his superstar status in boxing today. This is the very reason why he became the darling of the oppressed. He serves as an inspiration to those people living positively despite serious difficulties. Tough life in the sense that there’s no assurance when’s the next meal is going to be. How much more getting the appropriate boxing gear?
Liam Neeson’s narration on his true to life documentary film depicts Manny Pacquaio’s humility even after amassing substantial wealth by continuously winning in such dangerous sports here and abroad. Debut showing for this inspirational movie was March 12, 2014 in selected theatres. This is not about the technicalities of boxing – but the humble life of the boxer himself. He might have the killer punch but his attitude remains angelic that made him the ultimate pride of Filipinos aside from his boxing prowess.
There were incidents that he had to fight an opponent who was way beyond his league. Not a lot of choices for the stowaway minor from Gensan – who had to survive by doing petty jobs in a boxing gym. Yes, of all places, that was where Manny was brought by destiny. Getting the training necessary to excel in his field came in handy and he was smart enough to make the most out of it. This literally meant, fighting his way to stardom. Not having the opportunity to have a sponsor or government support to enhance his capabilities, his faith guided him through the right place and people. Obviously, he was brave enough to take chances. Get inspired by his story when you get the chance of watching Manny Pacquaio’s documentary film.
