Boxing website fightnews.com reported that Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao is on the cover of TIME Magazine's Asia edition.
The magazine will be out on newsstands starting this weekend.
"I absolutely had no idea that when I started my career in boxing, to provide a better life for myself and my family, that I would now be where I am today and on the cover of TIME Magazine," the news site quoted Pacquiao as saying.
The Filipino said being featured in the magazine is the "most humbling experience" in his boxing career.
He said "it is a great honor for me to be the face of my people and let everyone know we are a small but mighty country."
Pacquiao will be at the cover of TIME Asia but his five-page feature story will be published in all editions.
