I eat the same foods almost every day. I have my favorites like Filipino beef broth, chicken soup with lots and lots of rice.
I have to give people time to take a picture, and sign autographs. I have to be generous to people. It is in my heart. Without that, I would not be Manny Pacquiao.
Only in death will I relinquish my belts.
My #1 driving force is my lord and savior Jesus Christ. Also my family, my wife and children.
Boxing is a sport. We allow each other to hit each other, but I'm not treating my opponent like my enemy. We're doing a job to entertain people.
Being a public servant, this is a serious job, not like a boxer, you're entertaining people.
I've worked in construction, in a factory sewing clothes. I also sold flowers and doughnuts - just odd jobs to try to make 10 pesos, which is equivalent to 20 cents.
I'm just a regular person who believes life is simple, and I like a simple life.
I remember as a little boy I ate one meal a day and sometimes slept in the street. I will never forget that and it inspires me to fight hard, stay strong and remember all the people of my country, trying to achieve better for themselves.
I've always fought for my country, in my own way, showing that Filipinos are a strong people and can do anything that they put their minds to.
