Manny Pacquiao TIME Cover

The likes of Boxing greats Joe Louis, Max Schmeling, Sugar Ray Robinson, Joe Frazier, Cassius Clay aka Muhammad Ali were once the cover of TIME Magazine.

And now is Manny Pacquiao's turn..... This Filipino ring icon is the latest boxer to make it to the list of professional boxers to be featured in the cover of this well-respected magazine... And also Manny Pacquiao is the second non-heavyweight fighter to do so. He is also the second Filipino to grace Time’s cover after the late former President Corazon Aquino, who was named the magazine’s "Woman of the Year" in 1986.

In its latest Asia edition issue, Time pays tribute to PACMAN in a story titled “The Meaning of Manny,” which branded the Filipino spitfire as “the latest savior of boxing.” The story delves into Pacquiao’s stature as the Philippines’ favorite son, his humble beginnings, recent ring accomplishments, and many others. Previously, TIME also included PACMAN in its list of 100 most influential people in the world, with former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis providing a brief write-up on him.

I can't wait to watch his next fight, PACQUIAO vs COTTO... '
