Michael Pacquiao, the 20-year-old son of Boxing legend Manny Pacquiao is set to have his boxing debut this October.
In a special bout in Kamao ng Kabataan Paranaque Edition, Michael Pacquiao will be participating in an amateur debut fight against Nathaniel Ruiz. The fight is organized by KSK Promotions and is an event made for amateur fighters to showcase their talents.
The Kamao ng Kabataan: Paranaque Edition will happen on October 9 at 1 pm at the BF Homes Phase 1 Gym. The event will also feature a WBA Asia South Title fight, PBF Championship, and 50 of the top Elite Amateur Boxers in the Philippines. A weight-in will also happen for the title fights on October 8, 8 am at Rue Bourbon Paranaque. The event will also be sanctioned by the Games and Amusement Board for proper monitoring and evaluation.
The event is by private organizations, gym owners, lawyers, and volunteers who want to strengthen communities through sports, develop athletes, and help the youth discover their potential through sports. KSK Promotions also organized a similar event earlier this year in Poblacion Makati, La Union, and other provinces.
Michael Pacquiao also ventured into the music industry in 2020 where he also won Best New Artist of the Year from the 2020 Annual Aliw Awards. He recently released his latest song ‘Put Your Body On Me’ last September
