manny pacquiao

Two years ago today, the Philippines came to a halt once again.

Two years ago today, Manny Pacquiao earned the distinction of becoming the very first boxer to hold titles in seven separate weight divisions in his whole career. He defeated Miguel Cotto today via a technical knockout in the 12th round for the WBO welterweight division title.

About a week ago before that, he managed to be the second Filipino to ever grace the cover of TIME magazine and only the second boxer after 20 years since Mike Tyson.
Man, does time fly…
