Manny Pacquiao at Seventeen

Freddie_Roach_-_Manny_PacquiaoManny Pacquiao might be currently be the world’s most famous Filipino, but before he could train with well known trainers like Freddie Roach (shown here to the left), he was an unknown skinny 17 year old who had run away from home because his mother did not have enough money to raise him and his 5 other siblings.  This sequence of 18 photos from Gerhard Joren shows the young Pacquiao at working out at the LM Gym in Manila.
