According to the world champion who doubles as a lawmaker, being born into poverty is not a choice and he and his siblings grew up with nothing and his family was on the line ,so he had to fight.

Being born into poverty is not a choice.
My siblings and I grew up with nothing. No food, no shelter, not knowing if we could survive another day without food. That did not stop me though. I always believed and still believe today that with hard work, determination, and perseverance you can defeat whatever obstacle is in front of you. I didn’t have time to be lazy. My family’s life was on the line. I could not just stand by and do nothing. I had to fight!”

In July 2019, Pacquiao became the oldest welterweight world champion in the history of boxing after defeating Keith Thurman to win the WBA (Super) welterweight title at the age of 40.
