Why Some Fans Are Sick of Pac-Man Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao

Not all boxing fans are Manny Pacquiao’s fans. But according to most Internet opinion polls, most of these fans are supporters or followers of the Filipino boxing superstar. Yet a good number of these boxing fans are sick and tired of a mere mention of the pound-for-pound king’s name.

There are a thousand and one reasons for loving or hating Manny Pacquiao. But the real reasons for hating him are few and even understandable, to say the least. On the flip side of things, the reasons for loving him are far greater than the reasons cited by those who hate him.

Boxing fans who are mesmerized by Pacquiao’s meteoric rise to greatness are saying the Filipino boxing superstar is beyond compare in many ways.

These diehard fans say there is little reason why some boxing fans should hate him. It seems only those who are envious of his success find him not worthy of their support.

Family-oriented boxing fans say they find Manny Pacquiao a real good role model to their growing kids who are into sports in general and into boxing in particular.

But why is he considered by many as a good role model?

In one of the social functions where Pacquiao was conferred a special award for his concern about cancer-inflicted people, a couple who had three teenage kids was asked by a broadcast journalist why they were supporting Manny Pacquiao.

“Who would not support Manny Pacquiao?,” the family head asked. “He was once a poor kid but managed to rise above poverty through sheer determination and hard work. He was almost illiterate but he later pursued education, got a high school diploma and later went to college. And now he is an elected congressman representing his district in Southern Philippines.”

“Now that he is a millionaire many times over, he gives up a large chunk of his wealth to poor but deserving countrymen. He supports charitable institutions that help the poor and the sick, grants scholarship to poor but deserving students and shares his winnings to just about anyone who needs help and assistance,” the family man said.

“Certainly he is a good example for the youth of today,” he added.

Boxing critics are saying Pacquiao is nothing but a media creation. And a good number of boxing fans hate him for a number of reasons.

To the Pacquiao haters, just a mere mention of his name will almost instantly trigger a heated and lengthy debate.

In some debates, Pacquiao haters would almost zero in on the boxer’s alleged use of performance enhancing drugs, cherry-picking opponents and womanizing, among other things.

They are sick and tired of Pacquiao’s continued rejection of Floyd Mayweather‘s demand for a random blood test and point to it as the main reason why the long-awaited Pacquiao-Mayweather fight would not happen.

They are likewise sick and tired of Pacquiao’s continued practice of cherry-picking his opponents to assure his victory in every fight. A case in point they said is the upcoming Pacquiao vs. Mosley fight which recently created a media frenzy when boxing fans called for a boycott to the fight recently.

Pacquiao haters claimed the Filipino boxer knew Mosley is past his prime and the pound-for-pound king should not have agreed to the fight.

Boxing fans who hate Manny Pacquiao agree the popular boxer is nothing but a media creation. They said Pacquiao has to take on real opponent such as Tim Bradley, Andre Berto, Sergio Martinez, among others, to prove his widely admired boxing skill.

Still some boxing fans are sick and tired of Pacquiao’s womanizing despite media’s alleged cover-up. They asked why Pacquiao has been tagged as a good role model for the youth when he is setting a bad example by having relationship with other women outside of his marriage.

Boxing fans have a lot of different reasons for hating or loving Manny Pacquiao. But some boxing fans say they are sick and tired of the PacMan.

Are you sick and tired of Manny Pacquiao?

    No I’m not sick of Manny. I know he’s not perfect, no body is. He has a good heart, he treats people well, he takes care of his family and he’s an asset to his country and to boxing.
