Manny Pacquiao shares incredible skinny throwback picture

Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao shared an incredible throwback photo of himself to his social media accounts on Wednesday.

The 39-year-old Filipino senator announced this week that he will face Lucas Matthysse in Malaysia in July. Then he shared a photo which shows how far he’s come. Take a look at how skinny he was in this one:

Compare that to the photo he used to promote his fight with Matthysse:

Indeed, Pacquiao has come a long way. He began his career as a light flyweight, which has a limit of 108 pounds. These days he fights at welterweight with a limit of 147 pounds — an increase of 36 percent of his weight. Back when he began his career, Pacquiao was malnourished and often ate just one meal a day, which helps explain why he was so small. That was because he ran away from home after this awful story. When he began his pro career at 16, he was 4-foot-11 and weighed 98 pounds. To be as filled out and muscular as he is now is a huge change and represents his success.
