Featured Profile: Jinkee Pacquiao

1 Comment

Jinkee Pacquiao, wife of pinoy boxing champ Manny Pacquiao, has already established her name not only as the wife of a renowned boxer but as Jinkee herself—an endorser, TV and print ad commercial model, a mother of four children, and a woman who would let no ‘other woman’ come between her and her husband, Manny.

We have seen Jinkee evolved from a woman who used to be contented behind her husband’s shadow and being the wife who cheers for her husband’s success in the boxing ring to a woman who projects herself as strong, independent, and ready to fight to keep her family intact. She is Manny’s no. 1 supporter, be it inside the boxing ring or political arena.

Recent events and issues on Manny Pacquiao’s rumored affairs have somehow rocked her marriage with the pound for pound king. Jinkee, on the other hand, didn’t allow such issues to easily ruin her family and her relationship with Manny.

Jinkee and Manny met each other through Jinkee’s uncle, Reynaldo Jamora. At that time, Manny was still establishing his career as a boxer. On May 10, 2000, Jinkee and Manny got married.

Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez

The latest Hollywood celebrity to admit that he is a Pacquiao fan is the hunk Australian actor-producer Hugh Jackman. Hugh became known for his role as wolverine.

In one of his interviews, Jackman admittedly said, “Pacquiao is the biggest star in boxing right now.”

He further added, “I have seen him fight and I am a big fan. Can you please make the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight happen?”

It seems that even popular Hollywood stars are eager to see the much anticipated Pacquiao-Mayweather fight come to reality. If it happens, this could be one of the biggest phenomenons in boxing history—a spectacular boxing event that would shake the boxing arena.

Indeed, Manny Pacquiao is one of today’s most popular and well-known personalities in boxing. It can’t be denied that he is in the forefront of his boxing career. His fortune and popularity has really soared high that even famous celebrities want to meet him up close and personal, to shake hands with him, and just to have a brief moment with the pound for pound king, Manny Pacquiao.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao continues to train for his fight against Marquez which is just 6 weeks away from the scheduled fight—November 12, 2011 at MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas.

Along with Pacquiao, we will also see other Filipino boxers in the undercard like WBO Oriental featherweight titlist Lorenzo Villanueva, welterweight champion Dennis Laurente, and junior bantamweight Fernando Lumacad.
