Per an interview with Yahoo! Sport, Manny Pacquiao ran away from home at the age of 12 because he caught his father eating his pet dog, this according to his trainer Freddie Roach. Manny's family was so poor they needed the food.

"He slept in a cardboard box. He fought his way through all this, turned pro at 14, and look at the man he is today,"
That's rough stuff.

His dad was just raising the dog to eat. Not his dads fault that Manny thought the dog was a pet.

Good. Trying to maintain a pet while your family is starving is pretty shitty.

It's hard not to root for him. Especially in the upcoming fight against a POS like Mayweather

Good for Manny. One of a million reasons I'll root for him over Floyd Mayweather. Also, what an awful dad that guy is, eating your kid's pet is funny on The League but a real dick move in real life.
