Manny Pacquiao Worlds 2nd Greatest Ever Boxer celebrates 31st Birthday

This afternoon, Manny Pacquiao will throw a party as he celebrates his 31st birthday. The special event will be held in General Santos city, Philippines where he is also set to run for Congress in the Philippine Election 2010.

It is expected to have 2,000 visitors including friends from local show business, boxing, and politics. This of course will include his coach mentor Freddie Roach, while Miguel Cotto and Riky Hatton who both lost from Pacquiao were also invited.

As an additional birthday gift, Pacquiao was chosen as the Worlds 2nd Greatest Ever Boxer which was made through online voting.

The late Sugar Ray Robinson, who was the first fighter in history to win five divisional world championships in the 1950s landed in the first place.

As announced yesterday, online voters picked Pacquiao next after Robinson (175-19-6, 109 KOs) in the greatest ever list, one notch ahead of the legendary Muhammad Ali.

Although Pacquiao now campaigns at welterweight, he earned his nomination in the featherweight division, owing to his career-making triumphs over future Hall of Famers Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales, and Juan Manuel Marquez in the 126-lb wars.
