Do you have what it takes to spar with Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao? At Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, you can at least take a photo while trying because the Filipino boxing legend now has his own wax figure inside this iconic wax attraction. 

Pacquiao is the first male Filipino wax figure ever to be unveiled at Madame Tussauds. He’s joining the ranks of Hollywood stars like Angelina Jolie and Benedict Cumberbatch, award-winning artists like Lady Gaga, and Ariana Grande, beloved Korean actors like Kim Soo-Hyun and Suzy Bae, and the first Filipina and Miss Universe wax figure, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.

In 2019, Pacquiao went through the rigorous process of getting the right measurements, skin tone, hair and eye colors, and the perfect pose needed to create his lifelike wax figure. 

“We put great effort in accurate detailing to bring an unmatched experience for fans of the global icons we have at Madame Tussauds. Our team is proud to launch such an iconic athlete at Madame Tussauds and we can’t wait for Pacquiao’s Filipino and global fans to see him in action at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong,” said Eric Mak, General Manager, Hong Kong Cluster.

Now, you’ll find the final form of Pacquiao’s wax figure inside a boxing ring, in his signature fighting stance, ready to spar with anyone who will dare go near him.

Unlike other wax attractions, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong allows visitors to touch and interact with the wax figures. While inside, you can do the most creative poses that you can think of – even try and spar with Pacquiao using the boxing gear which you can also wear – while you take photos and videos with the boxing champ, in wax of course. 

So if you’re a Filipino in Hong Kong or anywhere around the world and you haven’t been home for a while and want to pay our famous kababayan a visit, then head over to Madame Tussauds and get a warm Pacman welcome.

For the rest who are simply planning to go to Hong Kong, make sure to add Madame Tussauds to your itinerary once the restrictions ease up and we can safely travel again. It’s a unique experience that’s waiting for you as you arrive at The Victoria Peak after an exciting tram ride.
