Senator Pacquiao story was from rugs to riches unlike Senator Villar who was well off from the start.
Pacquiao started off as an amateur boxer who was able to beat up every opponent he faced. From then, he was able to turn his life as a school dropout to an amateur boxer. He eventually moved to Manila and continued joining boxing matches there and got a job at local gym.
His boxing career got more serious as he beat other boxers from around the world at a very young age.
His perseverance and hard work brought him to where he is now and many called him the "Mexicutioner" for dominating in fights versus Mexican fighters.
