Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao sports the shoulders of a modern fistic giant for which future generations of Filipino boxers wish to stand on. From selling cigarettes in the streets as a youngster and having his family threatened by Islamic radicals, to becoming a venerable icon who transcended the sport which catapulted his career. A father, husband, boxer, basketball player, businessman, actor, musician, politician and more–few modern boxers…scratch that, few modern athletes have stood so isolated and downtrodden at the foothills of the Mountain of Success, only to conquer its weary trails and emerge atop the peak to soak in its majestic views.
The “Pac Man’s” savagery and Reznick’s production combine for a short but fantastic tale of an astonishing career.
