Manny Pacquiao, or ‘Pac-Man’ as he’s affectionately known, was recognized as The Fighter of the Decade from 2000-2010, and is the first and only boxer in history to win a world championship in 8 different weight classes. With a career record of 57 wins and 38 knockouts, it goes without saying that ORGANO™ is very excited to be fighting alongside one of boxing’s most celebrated champions, and reflecting back on one of the most epic Milestones and Memories of 2015 – Manny’s acclaimed Fight of the Century!
The Fight of the Century or The Battle of Greatness: The most recent professional boxing match between eight-division world champion, Manny Pacquiao and undefeated five-division world champion, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. was billed as the ‘Fight of the Century’ in 2015, and was also the highest grossing fighting match of all time. It took five years to negotiate, and months of intense buildup, for the highly anticipated fight between the world’s two leading” pound-for-pound” boxers to happen. The long-anticipated event took place on May 2, 2015, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The match ultimately ended up with; Pacquiao remaining the “People’s Champion”, while Mayweather was named the “Judges’ Champion” by a unanimous decision.
An Athlete for the Ages: Even with his many accomplishments as a globally-acclaimed boxer, Manny devotes plenty of his time and efforts to helping others in need. He believes in returning to humble roots to appreciate how far he’s grown and to show others what is possible. When he isn’t shining in the spotlight as a boxer, Manny can be found back home fulfilling his political career as an elected Congressman in the Philippine House of Representatives, building new centers for underprivileged youth as an Ambassador for Habitat for Humanity, or serving as a player-coach for a local professional basketball team.
Team OG and Team Pacquiao: When ORGANO™ talks about Family, it’s because we know it takes a group of people to help individuals reach their dreams. As each individual succeeds, they help others achieve their own dreams. It’s all part of our culture of giving back and leading by example. One of the best examples of this philosophy today is none other than our very own OG Champion, Manny Pacquiao. Recently, Manny added yet another milestone to his storied career by becoming an OG Diamond. This latest achievement shows his belief and commitment to our mission of “Bringing the Treasures of the Earth to the People of the World”. As a Diamond, Manny has become an inspiration to people worldwide.
Widely considered as one of the greatest fighters in the history of boxing, Manny isn’t simply just an amazing athlete – his many roles include being a father, politician, entertainer, ambassador, humanitarian, and coach. And, his relentless pursuit towards helping others achieve their dreams, is why ORGANO™ and Manny Pacquiao have enjoyed such a close relationship – and why Manny is truly deserving of the title of “OG Champion and Diamond”!
