IMAGES of Manny Pacquiao training with his dog, Pacman, are splashed all over media in anticipation of his fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 2 (today, May 3, Manila time), what’s being touted as the greatest boxing match of this generation. (Best of luck to you, Manny!)
The Pacquiao family has stayed close to the champ’s side, however, with wife Jinkee appearing occasionally on Instagram, including one photo in which the couple posed with actor Keanu Reeves.
Many are quietly wondering, how do Jinkee and the kids feel about the big fight?
“Kami ang nagbibigay ng inspirasyon kay Manny para sa fight,” she told Inquirer Lifestyle. “More than one month na kami ng mga anak ko rito sa LA, at masaya kaming buong family. Kaya kahit gaano ka-challenging ang training ni Manny, pag-uwi niya, andun kami lahat para suportahan siya.”
What’s their day like in LA? “Pumasyal kaming mag-anak sa Disneyland at Universal City!” Jinkee said. “But importante rin ’yung every day, the whole family prays together, worships the Lord and does Bible reading. Masaya kami ng mga bata at buong pamilya at magkakasama kami mag-bonding.”
We’re pretty sure that Manny will, indeed, be drawing a lot of strength from his loved ones.
