People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao has been named as the newest ambassador of the popular game “Mobile Legends.” In fact, the boxing champion and senator will also be having his own in-game hero named “Paquito.”
On a YouTube video, Mobile Legends showed a game play of Paquito, where the hero is depicted in boxer shorts and red gloves — not unlike the senator in the boxing ring.
Last Saturday, through a press conference, Manny said he feels honored to be named a Mobile Legends ambassador, and to have a hero made after him.
“It is an amazing experience I have seen how much the esports community in the Philippines has and how much the gaming community has embraced Mobile Legends Bang Bang skills,” he said.
Prior to its launch, Mobile Legends posted a teaser video of the newest hero coming to Mobile Legends last week.
Aside from having a Mobile Legends hero named after him, Pacquiao recently made another milestone getting his own Madame Tussaud’s wax figure in Hong Kong.
He is the first Filipino male personality to have a Madame Tussaud’s wax figure. Meanwhile, beauty queens Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray are the only Filipinas to have wax figures.
