Manny Pacquiao meets up with Deus Fight
Posted: Apr 16 2016
Deus Fight had the opportunity to meet up with the great Manny Pacquiao while he was in Los Angeles this past weekend. Among other things he was impressed that there was a Christian Brand focused on the jiu jitsu, mixed martial arts and boxing market. He is quite the person. He understands what it means to be a spiritual warrior, not just a great fighter. He was super humble and his family is amazing. We were able to get a few shots of him with our gloves and he liked them so much, he kept a pair for himself. He asked for some additional shirts and other products, so if you see Manny wearing Deus Fight at some point, don't be surprised.
Manny “Pacman” Pacquaio is a Filipino professional boxer and politician. He is the first eight-division world champion with six world titles on his belt, as well as the first lineal championship in four different weight classes. He was named “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000s by the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA), and is also a three-time The Ring and BWAA “Fighter of the Year”, for the years 2006, 2008, and 2009.
As he sets his sights on retirement, he's realized that there is more to life then just boxing. The road of a high profile boxer is one filled with many struggles and temptations. He has and continues to work hard to live a life of Faith and be an example to others. While none of us are perfect, it's always great to see role models express their Faith and do what they can to be an example for others. His story is certainly not done, it's only beginning.
