This is Pacquiao’s 3rd defense of his IBF Super Bantamweight title. Only, it will be a boxing clash against the mandatory challenger, Fahprakorb Rakkiatgym . The fight was held in Pacquiao’s country at Rizal Memorial College Gym, Davao City, Davao Del Sur, Philippines October 26, 2002.
As usual, Manny went on with his style of fighting. He immediately intimidated his opponent. With a series of explosive shots he had his rival sit in the canvas. Rakkiatgym was defenseless when Pacman lorded over the switching of jabs. When Fahprakorb fell again the crowd went frenzy.
Pacquiao eventually had Fahprakorb Rakkiatgym down thrice already early in the 1st round, before the latter collapsed in the floor. He had to be taken to the hospital afterwards.
