Manny Pacquiao next fight!

The Pride of the Philippines, Manny Pacquiao‘s last loss was against future Hall-of-Famer Erik Morales.

That was more than 5 years ago in March 19, 2005.

He has since avenged that defeat, twice and currently, Pacquiao is on a 12-fight winning streak.

Along the way, the Pacman has gobbled up his opponents with his lightning speed quickness, cat-like reflexes and brute strength with eight of those fights ending by way of knockout; a testament to his power.

It’s also amazing to know that in the process, he has won titles in a record seven weight divisions from 112 to 147 pounds beating men bigger and taller than him.

Reigning supreme at the featherweight limit for years, he started his ascent up the weight ladder with a Lightweight matchup against David Diaz whom he dispatched in nine rounds.

At his next fight, coming up as a 2-1 underdog because of the 4-inches height differential, he made Oscar dela Hoya quit in his stool after eight rounds of pummeling the Golden Boy which he calls his idol.

He then made quick work of the charging Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton with a 2nd Round knockout capturing the Briton’s IBO and The Ring Light Welterweight World Titles.

Next was Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico and his WBO Welterweight World Title. The fight was stopped by the referee in Round 12 as Cotto was clearly outclassed with his face a bloody mess.

Pacquiao’s latest victim was the tough as nails Joshua Clottey who did nothing but cover up to avoid an embarrassing knockout. Pacquiao won via total domination.

For his achievements, Pacquiao was named as the 2000-09 Boxing Writers Association Of America Fighter of the Decade, one of the highest honors a boxer can be bestowed upon.

Currently, the Filipino icon is rated as the #1 pound-for-pound best boxer in the world by several sporting news and boxing websites, including The Ring, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, NBC Sports, Yahoo! Sports and About.com.

Yes, Manny Pacquiao is clearly at the top of his game and shows no sign of slowing down.

    Mexicutioner! I kinda like that title for Manny.

    If he extinguishes more of the likes of Hatton, he’d be ‘Britextinguisher’. :)

    Haha, that’s funny. But there are no more Brits worthy of Pacquiao in his division.

    Except maybe for Amir Khan but I doubt they’ll ever fight in a professional boxing match because they are sparring partners and have the same trainer in Freddie Roach.

    We’ll never know. Manny fought with his ‘idol’ de la Hoya. For the sake of the art (or science) of boxing and for the love of money, sparring partners may still fight, when the clamor and the time is right.

    I agree. Besides, Pacquiao is not known to back out from any opponent. He will face anyone who is willing to face him.

    How many times do we hear Manny can’t beat his opponent, because of these and that factors. I guess every time he fights, and this time is no different, Manny will continue to prove that he is still the #1 boxer, and probably most outstanding congressman, is there such? hehe

    LOL! Before Mayweather started talking about that shit, no one brought up that issue and questioned Manny Pacquiao about it.

    It’s just one of Mayweather’s ploy in dodging Manny Pacquiao.
