Manny Pacquiao has celebrated his 25years of his boxing career with a long touching thank you message to everyone who supported him.
“January 22, 1995
25 years ago today, I started my professional boxing career. I never imagined life would bring me to where I am now. I never dreamed of all the accomplishments my future would hold.
Boxing changed my life forever. It lifted my family and I out of poverty, brought me places I never dreamed I would be, and provided me the opportunities to help others along the way.
However, I would not be where I am today if it were not for my family, who always stood beside me through the ups and downs;
my coaches and team, who worked tirelessly to get us where we needed to be;
my countrymen, who encouraged me and allowed me the privilege to represent our beloved country – the Philippines;
and to all my fans around the world, who continually cheered me on and supported me.
Manny Pac-Man Pacquiao has made it this far because of you, so I dedicate this day to all of you that have been there for me these past 25 years.
Thank you all so much and may God bless!”
