You Gotta Lose Sometime...

Ever thought in your whole lifetime that you pwned someone you never thought would be one of the greatest of all time? Here's a video showing that...Rustico Torrecampo, also an amateur boxer, did something that he can proudly say..."I KO'ed the PACMAN"

Early years at Light Flyweight division

In 1995, the death of a young aspiring boxer and close friend Eugene Barutag spurred the young Manny Pacquiao to pursue a professional boxing career.[19] Pacquiao started his professional boxing career when he was just 16 years of age, stood at 4'11'', and weighed 106 pounds (1 pound above the minimumweight division). His early light flyweight division fights took place in small local venues and were shown on Vintage Sports' Blow by Blow, an evening boxing show. His professional debut was a four round bout against Edmund "Enting" Ignacio, on January 22, 1995, which Pacquiao won via decision, becoming an instant star of the program.
Pacquiao's weight increased from 106 to 113 pounds before losing in his 12th bout against Rustico Torrecampo via a third round knockout. Pacquiao failed to make the required weight, so he was forced to use heavier gloves than Torrecampo, thereby putting him at a disadvantage
