Manny Pacquiao is a man who wears many hats (and of course, many gloves). He’s won international acclaim on the professional boxing circuit. He was dubbed the “Fighter of the Decade” by the sports media and world boxing associations, has won over 10 world boxing titles, and according to Forbes magazine, was the 14th highest paid athlete in the world as of 2013. Just last month, he garnered international acclaim when he won a highly anticipated rematch against Timothy Bradley Jr. in the WBO welterweight fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
But what many don’t realize is how active Pacquiao is outside the boxing ring. Back in his native Philippines, he’s not only a prominent humanitarian, he’s an elected official, having been an elected member of the House of Representatives in the Philippines since 2010. He is also admired by many as an entrepreneurial leader, making him an ideal ambassador for the entrepreneurial spirit of Organo Gold.
Organo Gold was so proud to announce their partnership with this much-admired boxer, politician and philanthropic leader back in April 2014, and look forward to many successful events and ventures with Pacquiao at our side. With his success in sports and his philanthropic efforts in the Philippines and beyond, he truly embodies the spirit of Organo Gold, and is a great fit for OG’s knockout combination of people and products.
