This Illustration of Lapu Lapu, the first Philippine hero, is one of the most popular illustrations by Francisco Coching. A prolific Filipino Illustrator and artist. Coching wrote and drew a Lapu Lapu komiks novel in 1955 that was later made into a movie.
Our illustration by our designer Adam Jackson, pays tribute to Coching’s famous piece while putting our own IM KING spin on things. It shows Manny as Lapu Lapu taking on a nameless boxer which represents his struggle to keep his title as the best pound for pound fighter in the world.

The IM king “Pound4Pound” design is an inspiration based off Chief Datu Lapu-Lapu, who back in the 16th Century fought back against Spanish Conquistador, Ferdinand Magellan, and successfully defended his village and fellow Filipinos. Pacquiao actually portrayed the legendary country hero in an annual re-enactment held in Cebu City, Philippines, as he is the perfect modern day example of Lapu-Lapu as a national hero. It is Pacquiao's Filipino Fighting spirit and an inspiration to the people to make it out of adversity and never let anything stop your dreams . It didn't take long for the design concept to materialize between IMKing's Creative Designer, Brian Tampol, and Mass Hysteria Werx's CEO, Brian Ortencio, who are both of Filipino backgrounds.
