Manny Pacquiao in Readers Digest Cover

You know I’m far from exaggerating when I say that the World is waiting for the Dec. 6 (Dec 7. in the Philippines) fight between the Best Pound for Pound Boxer and reigning World Boxing Council (WBC) lightweight champion; Manny “The Pacman” Pacquiao, and the Living Legend of the Boxing World, Oscar “Golden Boy” DeLa Hoya.

But it won’t be until a week from now, so here’s a little suggestion. Grab a copy of the latest issue of Readers Digest Asia with our favorite Manny “The Pacman” Pacquiao on the covers, released last monday (in the Philippines).

The issue (with Pacquiao at the cover) will only be circulated in the Philippines, but his seven page story – written by none other than Readers Digest‘s editor-in-chief Jim Plousse will be read throughout Asia.

The seven-page article is said to cover highlights of Pacquiao’s iconic rise from his humble “young boxer” beginnings in General Santos City to becoming one (if not) of the greatest boxer in the world today.

Editor-in-chief Jim Plousse, and the rest of Readers Digest Asia says they hope that Pacquiao’s story will somehow become a source of inspiration to many, as he has shown how hard work (even in struggles) can do.

3 Critical:

  1. An Honor – having one iconic Filipino yet again in Readers Digest (one of my favorite magazines) is really an honor for Manny and the rest of the Filipinos.
  2. Proud 2 B Pinoy!!! – I am and always will be.
  3. Just Maybe – maybe DeLa Hoya has a Readers Digest cover issue in Mexico too… it would be cool.
