Introducing: Manny Pacquiao look-alike! (Pictures, videos)
May 8, 2011
A few hours from now, we’ll know the results of the much-anticipated Manny Pacquiao – Sugar Shane Mosley boxing fight. Regardless if Pacquiao wins or loses, he’ll no doubt be remembered in the Philippines — and perhaps the world — as a famous celebrity and sports icon.
Riding in that popularity is Allan Rivera Manuel, aka Manuel Pacquiao, impersonator and look-alike of the Filipino boxer.
Manuel Pacquiao’s resemblance to the real Manny Pacquiao is uncanny. The hair, the shades — the American English accent aside — make him the best Pacquiao look-alike at present.
In fact, this 26-year-old Filipino-American from Houston, Texas has already duped several people into believing he was the true Pacquiao, including American boxer Roy Jones Jr. and Mexican-American boxer Antonio Margarito.
“Margarito was playing blackjack when he saw me and he dropped his stack of chips. He couldn’t tell at all,” Manuel told Yahoo! Sports in an interview.
“It is the same everywhere, the response is amazing. I have had paparazzi chasing me, people trying to grab me. This time I had to come with bodyguards.”
If he can improve his imitation of Manny Pacquiao’s English accent, “Manuel Pacquiao” can surely have a long career ahead of him as impersonator of the great Filipino boxing icon.
