Alberto Dapidran "Bobby" Pacquiao is a retired Filipino professional boxer.[1] He is the younger brother of Manny Pacquiao.

Boxing career[edit]

Pacquiao turned professional in 1997. He won the Philippine super featherweight title four times in years 2002 and 2004.

He began fighting in the United States, where his career picked up. On June 17, 2005 in Cabazon, California, he defeated Carlos Navarro for the WBC Continental Americas super featherweight title by a 7th round technical knockout.

On June 10, 2006, he defended his title against former WBC featherweight titlist Kevin Kelley.

In a match held on November 16, 2006 to defend his title against Hector Velazquez, Bobby Pacquiao was stripped of his title for being three pounds over the weight limit. The fight was derided for careless performances from both Velazquez and Pacquiao. Referee Kenny Bayless warned Bobby Pacquiao ten times for performing too many low blows before he disqualified him in the eleventh round. As a result, Hector was rushed to the hospital after the fight.

Bobby Pacquiao made his debut at lightweight on June 9, 2007 where he fought soon-to-be WBC super featherweight champion Humberto Soto in a 10-round bout. After sustaining a wound that impaired his vision, he was downed in the 7th round and never rose.

Following three bouts in that division, Bobby Pacquiao knocked out Decho Bankluaygym in eight rounds on August 2, 2008 for the WBO Asia-Pacific lightweight title. [2]

On November 19, 2008 (Philippine time), he lost by unanimous decision to NABA champ Robert Frankel.[3]
