A terminology popularized during last month’s Winter Olympics, though the most accurate reference of a “Cinderella Story” in the sporting world would be that of boxer Manny Pacquiao. Born into immense poverty, the Fighting Pride of the Philippines overcame countless odds, only to attain another impossible challenge, the first boxer to win 7 world titles in 7 different weight divisions.
Now as the fighter prepares to defend his WBO Welterweight Title against Joshua Clottey on March 13th, Pacquiao’s long time support, Nike, is issuing a selective line based the fighter’s training regime, including a set of AW77 Hoodie. Created in 1977 for Nike’s exclusive Athletics West training program, the AW77 Hoodie was intended to be lightweight yet sturdy enough to hold back the unpredictable climate of Pacific Northwest. Created in 100% French looped organic cotton, the fully lined hoodie hold its shape in any condition. Embroidered upfront is the unique Manny Pacquiao emblem, the boxer’s initials with five-pointed golden star found on the Filipino flag. Below the emblem are 7 stars, each marking Pacquiao’s 7 fight titles.
