After Abraham Tolentino, the President of the Philippine Olympic Committee, sent a letter to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) seeking special permission to include the legendary world-class boxer, Manny Pacquiao, in the men’s boxing competition at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, France, fans of the sport, especially those hailing from “Tagalog,” hope to witness their legendary boxer in action in two monumental matches, namely “The Match of Legends” and the 2024 Olympics. If Pacquiao is granted the opportunity, this would mark his first appearance in the Olympic Games.
Currently, Manny Pacquiao and the Philippine Olympic Committee are eagerly awaiting a response from the International Olympic Committee to determine whether the wildcard request will be accepted or rejected. In the interim, Pacquiao is demonstrating his physical fitness and readiness for the two significant fights scheduled for 2024.
Observing his physical condition, it is evident that Pacquiao remains in excellent shape and continues to carry his familiar athleticism. He asserts that he feels as if he is only 28-30 years old, given his rigorous and authentic training regimen, even though he may miss the 2024 Olympics. However, he still has the opportunity for the legendary “The Match of Legends,” where he must prepare his physique to go head-to-head with “Buakaw Banchamek,” the ultimate Thai boxing legend.
