Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao
30, Boxer

"Manny has two advantages over his opponents: He's in better shape, and he'll take a punch. He averages 3,000 sit-ups and 44 sparring rounds per day; he runs about eight miles every other morning, uphill. I don't know what it is, but there's something inside of him. When he gets hit, he taps his gloves together as if to say, 'Here I come.' He gets after an opponent after he takes a shot, as if he liked it."

-Freddie Roach, Trainer
It's about time we all stepped our game up.

Part of ESPN the Magazine's Body Issue. Meant to compete with Sports Illustrated's Swim Suit Issue. Professional athletes sort-of naked.
