After compiling an impressive amateur record (reportedly 60-4), Pacquiao turned pro when he was only 16 years old and very small, 4’11” and 98 pounds. Beginning in 1995, Pacquiao won his first 11 fights over a year until he lost to in 1996 in a fight where he was forced to use heavy gloves because he failed to make the required weight. He would then go on a 15-bout win streak on his way to winning his first title.
