Eight-division World Boxing Champion Manny Pacquiao is on the cover of the first issue of the Philippine edition of Esquire Magazine which just came out this month of October.  Esquire Magazine is a legendary American men’s mag which has been in publication since 1932.

The cover lensed by photographer Roy Macam features Congressman Manny Pacquiao in a tuxedo minus a tie, looking every inch the politician that he is.

Inside, the new magazine features a five-part cover story on Pacquiao, one written by his “unauthorized” biographer Gary Andrew Poole who published “PacMan: Behind the Scenes with Manny Pacquiao–the Greatest Pound-for-Pound Fighter in the World“, the book which has earned the ire of what Poole said is his “bloated entourage“.

This time, Poole’s article is entitled, “Maturation of Manny Pacquiao“.  Read excerpt by clicking here.
