MANILA, Philippines–Filipinos need not to look any further for the next Pacquiao in boxing when ring legend Manny Pacquiao finally decides to hang up his gloves for good.

Emmanuel Pacquiao Jr. or known more by his nickname Jimuel, the eldest among Manny’s five children, appears to be on his way to following his father’s footsteps.

There have been several videos on social media showing the 18-year-old Jimuel displaying his boxing skills.

Another clip was uploaded Saturday on Joven Sports Promotions’ Facebook page showing Jimuel sparring for two rounds against another aspiring boxer in Lucas Carson.

The name isn’t the only thing the two share.

Just like his dad, Jimuel also has the same relentlessness in the ring as he kept charging his opponent.

The eight-division champion, who had said he won’t discourage Jimuel from becoming a boxer, wasn’t physically there but he didn’t miss any minute of the fight as he saw it through video call.
