According to the official Manny Pacquiao movie Facebook page, the film narrated by Academy Award nominee Liam Neeson, “MANNY” chronicles the untold story of Manny Pacquiao– from his impoverished childhood years in war-torn Mindanao, his struggle to survive in Manila by working in construction sites and warehouses after running away from home at the age of 14– to his dramatic rise as a ten-time boxing world champion.

The synopsis of the film is as follows:

From abject poverty to becoming a ten time boxing world champion, congressman, and international icon, Manny Pacquiao is the true definition of a Cinderella-man story.

In the Philippines, he first entered the ring as a sixteen year old weighing ninety-eight pounds with the goal of earning money to feed his family. Now, almost twenty-years later, when he fights, the country of 100 million people comes to a complete standstill to watch. The army and the rebels cease-fire. There are no cars in the street. There is zero crime. An entire country becomes united.

Regarded for his ability to bring people together, Pacquiao entered the political arena in 2010. As history’s first boxing congressman, Pacquiao now fights for his people both inside and outside of the ring. Now at the height of his career, he is faced with maneuvering an unscrupulous sport and maintaining his political duties, while still supporting his family and sustaining a personal life. The question now is, what bridge is too far for Manny Pacquiao to cross?

The film will make it’s global debut at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas (March 7-15).

    Mayweather used to have the boxing world in the palm of his hand.. he became spoiled, he became hard to deal with. he became a Diva. THEN, Manny Pacquiao Came to the picture Stole his Thunder… Became Better than him and messed up his place in boxing history…Hence, the immediate anger of Floyd against Pacquiao… Hence, all the bad mouthing , all the discrediting , all the downplaying of Pacquiao’s achievements.

    Floyd’s reaction to Pacquiao’s Success was Envy. His damage control solution is to discredit Pacquiao as much as possible while avoiding to fight him as well.
    ( hence, the sudden racist rants. hence, the childish tantrums, all negative about Pacquiao) and people have take notice of that.

    Floyd’s Hates the attention Pacquiao gets in America… Floyd Hates he is overshadowed by a foreigner in his own country.
