Manny Pacquiao gets own Madame Tussauds wax figure

 

HONG KONG – Boxing icon Manny Pacquiao finally got his own wax figure at Madame Tussauds, with the lifelike waxwork unveiled in Hong Kong on Tuesday (November 23).

Pacquiao is the second Filipino to get his own Madame Tussauds waxwork, after Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach’s wax figure was unveiled in 2019.

“I am amazed at the final product. It looks so much like me,” Pacquiao said.

“I am excited for my fans to see this and get to take pictures. It’s like being together in the boxing ring. I’m honoured to be chosen for this opportunity, and grateful to Madame Tussauds for their wonderful work on my wax figure,” he added.

Pacquiao’s wax figure stands on a ring and is dressed in full boxing gear that was donated by the retired boxer himself.

After traveling to Hong Kong, Pacquiao reportedly spent more than six hours for fittings and measurements for the wax figure.

Pacquiao, who is running for president in the 2022 Philippine elections, is the only boxer in history to win 12 major titles in eight divisions. He is also the first to hold world championships for four decades.
