Just like his dad Manny Pacquiao, Jimuel Pacquiao is into boxing–and he’s good at it. At a very young age, he has trained as hard as his dad did as a boxer, catapulting him into the limelight as more and more people are expecting the next Manny Pacquiao soon. But aside from becoming a boxer, Jimuel shares another passion his dad has–a love for cars.
Manny is known to have owned luxury cars such as a Ferrari 458 Italia and a Mercedes-Benz SL550. Jimuel on the other hand, was too young when he first had an interest in cars. However, soon after Jimuel got his driving license and his birthday was coming up, Manny had a very shocking surprise that will Jimuel will definitely never forget as long as he lives.
While other kids his age would probably get a gadget at the most, Jimuel received a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with a Torch Red exterior finish. Apparently, Jimuel has been eyeing the said car, and has been expressing for his interest in having one of his own in the future. Now, his dad made his dream come true.
When Manny Pacquiao’s 41st birthday was approaching fast, Jimuel thought of surprising his dad–in a rather funny but touching way. During the boxing champion’s birthday bash, Jimuel approached his dad and gave him a key to a Corvette! Was Jimuel giving his dad a car too? But instead of getting surprised, Manny was rather confused. He must be wondering how his young son was able to buy the same
car he gave, when it was worth a whopping 8.5 million pesos?
Apparently, Jimuel just wanted to get his dad’s attention through pranking him, but his real intention was to tell his dad how he really felt. “If i had the money, I would give everything to my dad because he gave everything for us,” Jimuel said on his vlog. Netizens were touched by the video, saying they are both lucky to have each other.
