Like father Manny Pacquiao, Jimuel’s passion is boxing

Published

on

Manny Pacquiao will be headlining one of the biggest fight nights of the year as he clashes with undefeated American foe Keith Thurman Jr. at the MGM Grand Las Vegas on July the 20th. 

But before we see another titular affair from the Pacman, now 40-years-old and still looking sharp, another Pacquiao has traced his father’s footsteps, and who knows, maybe even outgrow his father’s enormous shadow. Jimuel Pacquiao, eldest son of the Pacman is now undefeated after hurdling a litmus test in Darel Marquez, but was good enough to come out with a victory after three rounds at the RNJ Gym in Muntinlupa recently.Mommy Dionisia was there to support the younger Pacquiao whose father is here in the United States to finish a six-week training camp heading into the July 20 card. The unanimous decision win is a definite boost to the aspiring boxer who fought, and won, all his fights in 2019.

“I trained for this. I can take the shots. But I need to work harder,” he said in an interview with Dyan Castillejo. Could we be seeing another Pacquiao dominate the boxing scene in the near future? If you ask the legend himself, Manny is the first to dial down the hype, and says he even tries to discourage his firs born son in taking up the gloves. But the eight-division world champion admits he can only do so much.“That\’s what he wants. We already advised him that boxing is so difficult, hard. You have to undergo hard work, training, discipline,” Pacquiao told Yahoo! Sports\’ Kevin Iole.“We discouraged him. (I told him) ‘I think you have to go to school, manage the business that we have,” he added.Pacquiao, whose storied career involved enduring hardships early in his career, did not want the same fate for his son. “(Jimuel) said, ‘What I\’m gonna do? Boxing is my passion?’” Pacquiao recalled. “I said, ‘That\’s my line.’”Indeed, boxing is a familial affair for the Pacquiaos, and us fans won’t regret ever seeing another one like Manny grace the squared circle. More importantly if its his own flesh and blood.

a reality.
Garcia made the announcement on Thursday that he and Davis would square off in Las
Vegas in 2023. When Davis enters the ring on January 7 to face a yet-to-be-determined
opponent, he will declare the fight “done deal.”
“I’m so pumped this fight is finally in place I want it more than anything right now,”

be the biggest boxer in the world. That legacy starts today.”

their perseverance in making the bout materialize despite obstacles.

and Showtime broadcasts his fights.
Garcia is being managed by Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions, and DAZN is
airing his fights.
The two teams have been at odds for a while, but they have finally come to an
understanding and put their differences aside to engage in combat.

Pacquiao-Mayweather 2 officially in talks?

Pacquiao-Mayweather 2 officially in talks?

It has been made known that FLOYD MAYWEATHER is formally in discussions to face
Manny Pacquiao again in Las Vegas the following year with his record on the line.
After waiting for the two superstar adversaries to come to terms for half a decade, the
American defeated Pacquiao in 2015 over the course of 12 rounds.
But after eight years, the two boxing greats plan to resume their fight for a sequel to
their £500 million box office hit.
The negotiations between the two camps are being facilitated by Global Titans, who are
marketing Mayweather’s upcoming exhibition fight in Dubai.
We’re already working on Floyd and Manny Pacquaio, their CEO Uday Singh told
SunSport.
And a huge fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao might be announced
as early as December. A second match, not a demonstration.
After defeating former UFC champion Conor McGregor, 34, in 2017, Mayweather, 45,
decided to retire. Since then, he has fought four exhibition matches.
Additionally, he has never discussed going back to the ring to defend his pristine 50-0
record, especially versus Pacquiao, 43.
However, Mayweather’s perspective was altered after meeting Singh in Vegas prior to
his exhibition match with YouTuber Deji on November 13.
Since Manny Pacquiao was initially hesitant as well, Singh stated: “I’ve already had the
first meeting with Manny Pacquiao.
“It’s just egos, nothing else. But at the end of the day, Floyd’s a good guy, he’s a good
fighter.
“Once you’ve satisfied him with his purse, he’s happy to fight whoever. But it’s to his
interest as well, he said, ‘Why not? Let’s do it.’
“He hasn’t had a real proper fight since 2017, the last one was with Conor McGregor.”
Singh admitted he initially faced a fight to get Mayweather to agree to a pro bout
opposed to an exhibition, but won him over eventually.
He said: “Yeah, it was hard. But then again, at the end of the day he knows what people
want and he’s an entertainer.

Ruiz downs Ortiz in heavyweight title eliminator

Andy Ruiz Jr. is slowly getting back as a heavyweight title contender after dominating Luis Ortiz.

The former unified heavyweight world champion knocked down “King Kong” Ortiz thrice to win via unanimous decision.

Next in line for the boxer who had one of the greatest upsets in boxing history is to face the former WBC king Deontay Wilder.

Wilder, who has been out of the picture since being destroyed by Tyson Fury in their rematch, will make a return to face Robert Helenius before eventually fighting the Mexican Ortiz.

The Ruiz-Wilder bout is a big chance to happen as both heavyweights are under the boxing promoter Al Haymon.

“We’re always looking for great exciting fights we love to give the fans,” said Wilder, who was on ringside during the Ruiz-Ortiz clash.

“So if that’s what is lined up next, I’ve got to handle business and after that, we can get it on.”
