Emmanuel Pacquiao Jr. or Jimuel as he is fondly known is the eldest son of Senator Manny Pacquiao and Jinkee Pacquiao.
Recently, Jimuel fought out a draw with his classmate Lucas Carson in a contest boasting headguards. Although not yet a polished boxer, Jimuel was able to knock down Carson in the 2-round bout.
Jimuel began his boxing training while his father was still preparing for his world welterweight title defense against Adrien Broner back in January.
In an Instagram post by Dylan Castillejo, Pacquiao Jr. was seen wobbling his opponent, who then touched the canvas for a knockdown.
Both fighters continued swinging for the duration in a fight taking place in front of a small crowd of family and friends.
Tiring late on, Jimuel seemed to struggle with the pace despite the fight only being two rounds.
Failing to stay on his feet towards the end, Pacman’s son got a first-hand taste of his dad’s full-time job.
Manny was not around to coach or even cheer but he talked with Jimuel on video call just before the match took place.
Jimuel has spent some time preparing for the bout at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles.
