Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao, PLH (/ˈpæki/ PAK-ee-ow; Tagalog: [pɐkˈjaʊ]; born December 17, 1978) is a Filipino professional boxer and politician.

Pacquiao was born in Kibawe, Bukidnon, Philippines. He studied at Notre Dame of Dadiangas University.

He is the only eight-division world champion in the history of boxing.[5] He won eleven major world titles, as well as being the first boxer to win the lineal championship in five different weight classes.[6][7][8] Pacquiao is also the first boxer in history to win major world titles in four of the original eight weight classes of boxing: flyweight, featherweight, lightweight, and welterweight.[9][10][11]

Pacquiao has generated about 19.6 million in pay-per-view buys and $1.2 billion in revenue from his 24 pay-per-view bouts.[12] According to Forbes, he was the second highest paid athlete in the world as of 2015.[13]

In May 2010, Pacquiao was elected to the House of Representatives representing the province of Sarangani. He was re-elected in 2013.[14] In June 2016, Pacquiao was elected as a senator and will serve a six-year term until 2022.[15]

Pacquiao was a top candidate for President of the Philippines in the 2022 presidential election. At first President Rodrigo Duterte said in December 2016 and December 2017 that he wants to make Pacquiao his replacement.[16] In September 2021, Pacquiao announced his presidential candidacy in the 2022 election.[17] He lost the election in May 2022.
