An Autographed Glove from The Pacman and Freddie

Whether he wins or lose in his next fight, Pacquiao has already established himself as one of the greatest boxers of all time. It is not the number or quality of the fighters he defeated that made him great but the way he demolished these fighters. Any memorabilia from this great warrior would surely become a cherished possession in the not so distant future. Our children would be very thankful on inheriting something from "The Man" from Gensan. Thus, it was a pleasant surprise that Jinky, a college friend based in the United States who had friends close to Manny, volunteered (thru Facebook) to have an Everlast glove autographed during Pacman's pre-Hatton fight propaganda in Las Vegas. Here in this picture, is Jinky with Freddie Roach signing the glove and with Manny in a group picture. Thanks Jinks, I will never forget to tell my grandchildren you were the one who had the gloved signed.

A win against Shane Mosley in his possible next fight would earn him a record seven belts in different weight classes. Then an encounter and subsequent demolition of "Pretty Boy" Floyd Mayweather would forever cement his status as one of the greatest, if not the greatest pound-for-pound fighter of all time. Good luck Manny! I hope you'll come visit us soon so you can sign my Pacman Stamp.
