Emmanuel, son of legendary boxer Manny Pacquiao, dropped his first defeat in boxing last weekend. 

The amateur boxer would enter his fourth fight at Fire in the Ring’s Amateur Fight Night 2 on Saturday in San Francisco. Unfortunately for the 3-0 Pacquiao, he wouldn’t leave the ring with his undefeated record intact. 

It would be a hard-fought battle, Pacquiao would ultimately lose his fourth fight to professional debutant Chris Smith. The boxing bout would reach the distance, with the judges scorecards being in favor of Smith.

Competing under the last name of Pacquiao, Emmanuel has a lot to live up to. Continuing in his father Manny’s footsteps is a tall task, which includes a lot of pressure. 

Emmanuel Pacquiao says he’ll have to get used to it.

“At first, I was just quietly going into it and stuff, but I guess it’s unavoidable. I’m trying my best. I have to get used to it,” Pacquiao Jr. told abs-cbn.com (h/t: Daily Mirror). “I’ve constantly been training. I’ve been training for months [in the US], and this is all I want: get more experience, get better. “I think we’ll see in the future whether I will turn professional. Right now, I’m just trying to get better, to get more amateur fights, bring my record so we’ll see in the future.”

Pacquiao will look to rebound from his first loss in his return to the ring.
