Para Sa 'Yo Ang Laban Na Ito (lit. This Fight Is For You) is a Filipino television inspirational talk show and self-help drama produced by GMA Network and presented by Manny Pacquiao and Jean Garcia. The show premiered February 3, 2013 on the network's Sunday late night block and February 10, 2013 worldwide via GMA Pinoy TV.
On March 23, 2013, show moves to new timeslot--from Sundays to Saturdays night at 10 p.m. slot. The show concluded on April 20, 2013 after 11 episodes.
The show is dubbed as GMA Network's very first "self-help" drama. It hosted by world boxing icon Manny Pacquiao and actress Jean Garcia, the show features real people with parallel life stories but have different endings. The show presented every life story via a short film and starred by some of the network's talents. Also in each episode, Pacquiao will share his own personal challenges and how he survived them with a series of difficult choices.
Following the show's main objective, Pacquiao and Garcia serve as coaches, helping and encouraging people to keep the faith, discover and believe in themselves, look straight, stand up and fight life's challenges.
With the battle cry, "Ang pagbabago ay magmumula sa desisyon mo..." (Change begins in your decision...), the hosts will challenge their guests to fight life's battle. Thus, they ask their guests this question: "Palaban ka ba?" (Are you a fighter?).
- The pilot episode (February 3, 2013) featured the story of two mothers who were abandoned by their husbands and were left to raise their children alone. It is a topic close to Pacquiao's heart because he grew up with the same situation.
- The premiere episode (March 23, 2013) of the show for its new timeslot (the show moves from Sundays to Saturdays night timeslot) features the life story of Ivy Bascogin, an 18 year-old girl whose dream of being a teacher was suddenly hindered when her father has to stop from being a tricycle driver because of pneumonia. Meanwhile, her mother only earns five hundred pesos per week as a laundress. Because of poverty, Ivy was unable to continue her studies and chose to work in a small canteen as an all-around helper with a salary of one hundred per day.
- This episode (April 20, 2013) serves as the show's farewell episode. Joey de Leon guests as co-host to Jean Garcia. He also reminisces his and his mother's struggle when his father left them, and their reunion after two decades.
