Even for non-boxing fans an interesting documentary to watch
Interesting sport documentary about the famous Philipino boxer Manny Pacquiao alias Pac Man. Even for people that are not really into boxing or sports in general it's a well done and easy to watch biography of a great champion. It tells the story from his young age as a poor kid in a family that didn't have food on the table every day to the champion he became after fighting his way to the top. He defeated almost everybody in a lot of different categories and earns much respect for the way he did it. Always humble and looking like he's not worried about a fight he has that charming look that makes you interested in his story. The only down point to me is his strong beliefs in a God. If he's a world champion it has absolutely nothing to do with a God, it's because he's the best and that's it. Manny "Pac Man" Pacquiao will definitely go in the list of greatest boxers all time.
