Pacquiao's son Jimuel shows his own boxing moves in exhibition match

Jimuel Pacquiao, son of eight-division world boxing champ and incumbent senator Manny Pacquiao, showed the stuff he's made of in an exhibition boxing match on Saturday, according to a report on GMA News' Unang Balita on Monday by Mav Gonzales.

At the warm-up, bystanders could not help but notice the son doing the same moves as his father would.

Before the match, Jimuel talked with Manny via Facetime with the latter giving his son pointers.

Inside the ring, Jimuel hit his opponent Lucas Carson right away, causing the latter to fall on his knees.

Jimuel also unleashed a series of punches and hit his gloves the way Manny would during his fights.

Carson also tried hitting Jimuel especially during the latter part of the match.

Manny watched the entire match via Facetime.

"It was good. I just ran out of gas... Oh Lucas is tough," Jimuel said.

His opponent Carson acknowledged that Jimuel was good.

"Emmanuel did really good, right? I was definitely knocked so many times. It hurt a lot but I wanted to keep going and have a good match in the end," Carson said. —KG, GMA News
