This time, the millionaire and businessman helped his fellow Filipinos. He knows too well about inequality and enormous hardships that the representatives of the lower classes go through in the Southeast Asian country - where he was born.

Emmanuel 'Manny' Pacquiao grew up in extreme poverty to become a sports idol winning 8 world championships.

His success as an athlete and businessman allowed Mr. Pacquiao to help Kibawe, his native town, with about 1,000 houses.

I’m so happy giving these houses free to my constituents in the Sarangani Province from my own pocket – more than thousand families are the beneficiaries.

The most peculiar thing is that almost all the money used to finance housing came from just one fight, the well-known 'Fight of the Century' he had against Floyd Mayweather in 2015.

The Filipino boxer says he never forgets where he came from and often thanks God for his achievements, sharing his most 'spiritual' moments with his followers. Manny Pacquiao likes to inspire.
