Hit Maker


In a week filled with political events and news, there sure has been an awful lot of talk about boxing champion Manny Pacquiao. No, there’s no big fight coming up. The excitement is over PacMan: Behind the Scenes with Manny Pacquiao, The Greatest Pound-for-Pound Fighter in the World, a biography by L.A.-based sports writer Gary Andrew Poole hitting stores November 13.

The feature, which ran in our March 2010 issue, goes behind the scenes of the welterweight champ’s training sessions in Hollywood leading up to his spring match against Joshua Clottey.
