Pacquiao Jr. loses 4th amateur bout to SF Bay Area boxer
SAN FRANCISCO – Amateur boxer Manny Pacquiao Jr., lost to hometown boxer Chris Smith on Saturday night, June 25 at the United Irish Cultural Center in San Francisco.
A packed crowd watched Pacquiao Jr.’s fourth amateur bout. He came with a 3-0 record.
Pacquiao Jr., 21, debuted in San Diego in March, according to Ring Magazine, months after his father lost to then-welterweight champion Yordenis Ugás before announcing his retirement.
He was training last October with Mexican undisputed super middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez, according to the World Boxing Council (WBC).
His father, Manny Sr. initially opposed his entry into boxing. Manny Jr. has pursued the sport for only two years.
