The photographer was with the Pambansang Kamao all throughout his quest – from the start of the latter’s rigorous training in Gensan and Sarangani and up to the ringside in Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, recording the final moments leading to his knockout victory against his younger opponent. This book therefore, enables the reader to get an intimate peek into the Pacman psyche, his motivation and his unbridled faith in his Creator that eventually led to his triumph in the ring after a long dry spell.
