"Manny" opens in select theaters and VOD on Friday, January 23. The 36-year-old Filipino pugilist took to the red carpet to talk about the documentary and his possible upcoming match with Floyd Meayweather, Jr. Pacquiao arrived at the Chinese Theater with an entourage comprised of his wife Jinkee, other family members, and his regular boxing crew.
