Jimuel Pacquiao wants to follow dad\’s footsteps.

No matter how Manny Pacquiao tried, he couldn\’t get knockout the desire of his son Jimuel to do boxing.

The eight-division world champion wants to keep his son away from the sports because he knows how dangerous it is, but his passion for the sport is passed down to Jimuel, who is trying to pursue a boxing career.

\”Kung ako tatanungin mo, ayaw ko, kasi hindi ko kayang panoorin \’yung anak kong lumalaban,\” Manny said in an interview with Rappler Talk.

\”Kaya lang sa tuwing sinasabi ko sa kanya, binabalik niya, \’Daddy \’di ba, boxing is your passion? Same with me, like you, boxing is my passion also. So what are we going to do?\’ Tameme ako, hindi ako makapagsalita.\”

His son is training in the United States and is having Jonas Sultan, a former world title contender, as his sparring partner.

Will Jimuel pursue a professional career in boxing soon?

It is not very far from reality as he already made some matches back home in the Philippines. And with Pacquiao conceding on the thought of stopping his son, will he now teach the younger Pacquiao to become fantastic just like him?

Pacquiao-Mayweather 2 officially in talks?

The US jury voted against Manny Pacquiao in his Paradigm Sports Management Civil Lawsuit.

Boxing’s only eight-division world champion has been ordered to pay $5.1 million for the damages and the advance money Paradigm Sports had given him.

The Management filed breach of contract against the Filipino icon in his deal two years ago.

Despite losing the case, Pacquiao is confident that the decision can still be shifted to his camp’s favor.

Conor McGregor who is also under the PSM tweeted that Pacquiao should not let it happen again.

‘Manny owes 8 in all. 5.1 he owes and then 2.1 in legal costs. Legal fees are heavy but that’s what we do. Heavy weight operations,’ the Irishman said on a now deleted separate tweet.

It’s just a week away from the highly anticipated showdown inside the boxing ring, and Ryan Garcia is confident that he can surprise the champion, Gervonta Davis, and the entire boxing community.

Despite putting on weight, Garcia still possesses his lightning-fast speed, and he claims that he is not intimidated by Davis.

“He’s nothing scary. He’s just a guy that’s trying his best to climb to the top as well, and we’re just meeting at a big event. That’s it.”

Considered the underdog in the fight, Garcia has the support of other boxers like Jermall Charlo, who even bet $10,000 on Garcia.

Boxing legend “Sugar” Shane Mosley is also rooting for Garcia, as well as Mario Barrios and boxing promoter Eddie Hearn.

Tank Davis Mimics Mike Tyson to defeat Ryan Garcia

After a devastating 7th round KO, Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis fans saw a Mike Tyson blows Ryan Garcia with a twist in T Mobile Arena, April 22.

“Tank is very comfortable fighting taller people because when he fights he catapults himself, and pushes himself in the air, so it makes it very difficult to stop his attack cause it’s very awkward when you’re in the air, normally you have no power. But, the way which he catapults himself, it’s almost like a gun being fired. He flies right into you with every ounce of power.” Tyson said in an interview.

Meanwhile, a fan said “What the commentators didn’t mention is that this was a Mike Tyson style body blow which was generated from tank being in that crouched position, the upward motion generated much more from the legs and hips, plus being accurate and well timed, well played from tank.”

Davis got 58 total score from the judges while Garcia got 55. Tank Davis dominated Garcia in almost all rounds except round 1 and 6.

Boxing fans noticed the perfect timing and patience of Davis on the 7th round as he landed a liver blow that led Ryan Garcia to kneel down with pain.

According to the Way of Martial Arts, just as a shot to the chest area can leave you without air for a while or a dangerous shot to the head could render you unconscious, a liver shot can be just as painful and just as dangerous.

It can be recalled that Tank Davis has been compared to Mike Tyson due to their common styles. Although, Mike rejects that similarity except with Tanks Police issues.
