Buboy Fernandez and a longtime friend of Manny currently holds the position of Vice Mayor/Deputy Mayor of Polangui town, Albay. Moreover, Pacquiao currently holds the position of Senator of the Philippines and is serving a 6-year term, which began in 2016.

The middleweight champion is the only boxer to become an eight-division champion in the history of boxing. However, Pacquiao’s work outside of the ring is equally commendable.
