Pacman in TIME's '100 Most Influential' poll.

Filipino pride and boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao is again included in TIME Magazine’s poll for the 100 most influential people in the world for the year 2010.

The poll has Pacquiao joining global personalities like US President Barack Obama, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Oprah Winfrey in the list. The poll is currently being dominated by celebrities like Lady Gaga, Conan ‘O Brien, Rain and Robert Pattinson.

As of writing, Pacquiao is ranked No. 20 behind satire host John Stewart. He has garnered a total number of 5,437 votes with an average rating of 90. This is the boxer’s second appearance on the list. He finished No. 20 in TIME Magazine's list of most influential “Heroes & Icons” last year.

Pacquiao, the reigning World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight king and 7-division champion is currently running for the lone congressional seat of Sarangani province in Mindanao.

“For now, the Filipino, a champion in seven weight classes, is focusing on a prize he has tried but failed to win before: a seat in his country's legislature,” the article added.

Hi,Leomar! Our very own Manny has really gone a long way in giving us pride as Filipinos. Kudos to him!
Hey, may I ask which call center you're with? I'm in a company in Eastwood.

Thanks for the comment, Rochelle. I have been with Sykes Asia for the longest time, 3 years and a half and I can't see myself leaving the company in the immediate future.
