By

Manny Pacquiao’s reported amateur boxing record is 60-4 with most of those fights happening in Manila after he relocated there as a 14-year-old and was living on the streets.

Jay Dayupay, a reporter for TV Patrol Socsksargen in Pacquiao’s hometown of General Santos City, has been reporting on Pacquiao’s relatives and supporters in his hometown and found the photo above. He says it’s a photo of Pacquiao as a 12-year-old after he beat a 16-year-old in his first bout in General Santos.

Pacquiao faces the biggest bout of his pro career Saturday night against Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas.
