Manny Pacquiao is without question one of the greatest boxers of all time. His body of work spanning over two decades of excellence is legendary. From beginning his career as a scrawny flyweight to defeating Antonio Margarito for the Super Welterweight World Title, Pacquiao’s meteoric rise through eight weight divisions is well documented.
In many of Pacquiao’s spectacular performances, the prevalent theme has always been his speed and power. Featuring a thunderous left straight that has downed many opponents, Pacquiao was known as a devastating knockout puncher and a relentless storm of offense that opponents simply could not keep up with.

The last time I wrote about training for real-world self-defense, I upset a few martial arts practitioners. But the evidence for my message is obvious: all you have to do is watch actual footage of people involved in violent conflict to see that most martial arts training doesn’t translate to real-world self-defense.
