WATCH: Pacquiao son shows off boxing chops
Although still unrefined, Jimuel Pacquiao displays the fearlessness his father Manny possessed

MANILA, Philippines – There could be another boxer from the Pacquiao family.

Emmanuel “Jimuel” Pacquiao Jr, the eldest among Filipino boxing icon Manny’s brood of 5, looks to be following his father’s footsteps after seeing action in a two-round bout.

Battling budding fighter Lucas Carson, the 18-year-old flaunted his boxing chops by pulling off a knockdown in the 1st round.

Although obviously still unrefined, Jimuel displayed the fearlessness his father possessed on the way to becoming the sport’s only eight-division world champion.

Manny was not in attendance during the fight, but the video posted by Joven Sports Promotions showed he witnessed his son’s bout through video call.

The older Pacquiao is coming off a dominant unanimous decision win over Adrien Broner to defend his World Boxing Association regular welterweight belt in January. –
