"Manny": A Documentary about Boxing's First Eight-Division World Champion

Manny Pacquiao, boxing's first eight-division world champion, is the subject of the upcoming documentary Manny. The documentary, which is narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Liam Neeson, chronicles the rise of Pacquiao from poverty to boxing superstardom and politics.

The official world premiere of this documentary will be held sometime in March during the 2014 SXSW Festival. The documentary would be a good promotional move for Pacquiao's upcoming fight against Timothy Bradley in April.

Based on the trailer, Manny depicts Pacquiao as a "Cinderella Man" who not just provided for his family through his boxing fortunes: Pacquiao is also a fighter who unites the nation, sort of a standard bearer who elevates the country in the global stage.
