Manny Pacquiao Birthday is Today

Emmanuel “Manny” Dapidran Pacquiao was born December 17, 1978 in Kibawe, Bukidnon and resides in General Santos City. Christian belief holds that Emmanuel means the “Messiah” and he was born just eight days before Christmas, thus he was named as such. True to his name Emmanuel, Manny is the “Messiah” to the deteriorating Philippine sports. He is the “Messiah” to the boxing world whose popularity is dwindling due to the rising costs of pay-per-view shows and the evident lack of talents. Today Manny will celebrate his 31st birthday in General Santos City in the same venue where he commemorated his 30th birthday last year. It serves also a victory party for his convincing win over Miguel Cotto. Last year during his 30th birthday bash, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo led the guests which include Freddie Roach and Bob Arum. It capped his upset win over the legendary Golden Boy Oscar de la Hoya.
