The young boxing star began his professional career against his father’s original wishes. He triumphed with ease in his first three amateur fights, all of them in front of big crowds.
However, At San Francisco’s Irish Center, Chris Smith, a professional debutant, has now defeated Pacquiao Jr., ending his unbeaten streak. He put up a good fight and engaged in several brutal exchanges, but he was unable to win the decision when the final buzzer rang.
When the decision was announced, Smith raised both fists in the air before exploding in euphoric celebration in front of the shocked audience. The boxing legend’s son’s most recent bout drew a significant crowd to the arena, which had an impact on the fight’s context.
“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. sadi to abs-cbn.com. “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.”
