In a report by ABS-CBN News, Rasheda Ali says that Manny Pacquiao is just like her own father, boxing great Muhammad Ali.

Rasheda Ali states:

Manny reminds me of my dad.  He is a very generous person, a very loving person.  He takes the celebrity status and gives it back to the community.  That’s what my dad has done.”

Manny Pacquiao was in the United States to provide a deposition for his court case against fellow boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr.  Pacquiao attended Ali’s 70th birthday gala in Las Vegas.  Although a month late from his actual birthday, this star-studded charity event included Stevie Wonder and other actors, musicians, and athletes.

This event had a price tag of $1,500 per plate and all proceeds will be donated to the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain health located in Muhammad Ali’s hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.

Ali suffers from Parkinson’s Disease.
