Manny Pacquiao defends his title, seeks another: politician

The World

This Saturday night, boxing sensation Manny Pacquiao will defend his WBO Welterweight title in Texas. And his chances are pretty good. Meanwhile, back in his home country, the Philippines, he’s chasing a long shot chance to win another fight. He’s running for political office.

It’s just one of the champ’s many non-pugilistic interests, which have already included acting and singing. Steve Farhood, Showtime boxing analyst, previews Pacquiao’s chances in and out of the ring and explains Manny’s eccentric ways.
