The Greatness of Manny Pacquaio
A star has risen and fallen within the last few years and shown us how to be human and how to rise above also.
Pacquaio was not just a great fighter, he overcame so many obstacles in his life to become the inspiration that he is to so many people from so many backgrounds. He is living proof that greatness and class can come together in one package, and that it is possible to rise above your lot even in the stifling poverty from where he came from.
He lost last night in devastating fashion to another great fighter but he will forever be remembered not just in boxing but by the millions of people who used his inspiration to better themselves.
