The Olympic Games competition is the ultimate dream of every athlete who wishes to experience it once in their lifetime!!!
“Manney Pacquiao,” the legendary boxer at 44 years of age, who has won world professional boxing championships in 8 weight classes and has become a “legendary boxer.” No boxer has been able to erase the history of “Pacquiao” from this page.
However, “Pacquiao” has never had the opportunity to participate in the Olympic Games, even though it’s another dream of his, to step into the ring and win a gold medal as a representative of the Philippines.
Recently, the boxing scene, a famous news site in the boxing world, reported that the Philippines Olympic Committee has submitted a “special request” letter to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to allow Pacquiao to compete in the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, despite the age requirement that athletes must be born between January 1, 1980, and December 31, 2001, as per the Tokyo 2020 Games (Age Requirements: Athletes must be born between 1 January 1980 and 31 December 2001).
Abraham Tolentino, the President of the Philippines Olympic Committee, submitted a letter to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) two weeks ago, requesting a “universality place” for Pacquiao, who narrowly lost to Yordenis Ugas in 2021.
However, because Pacquiao is about to have a legendary fight with the Thai boxing legend, “Buakaw Banchamek,” he is confident that Pacquiao is in top physical condition for both of these great matches.
For the “universality place,” which is the right given to athletes from countries that cannot qualify for the Olympic Games through normal channels, boxing will receive 9 quota places in total, including 4 men (57 kg, 63.5 kg, 71 kg, 80 kg) and 5 women (50 kg, 54 kg, 57 kg, 60 kg, 66 kg). The names are expected to be announced on June 7th next year.”
