Pacman 2.0?

By now, it's no secret that Jimuel Pacquiao, the eldest son of eight-division world champion and current reigning WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao has every intention of following in his father's footsteps. 

The 18-year old Jimuel is undefeated in three amateur bouts this year, and is showing a lot of potential inside the ring. 

During Manny's training camp for his upcoming title bout against reigning WBA (Super) Welterweight World Champion Keith Thurman, Jimuel was able to join in on one of the training sessions and hit the mitts with veteran coach Marvin Somodio as head trainers Buboy Fernandez and Freddie Roach looked on. 

Jimuel was also able to get some pointers from his old man. Manny said that he would train Jimuel himself and mold his son into a champion. 

With Pacquiao's boxing career likely winding down soon, it looks like there will be another "Pacman" in the making who's ready to carry on the Pinoy boxing great's legacy inside the ring.
