Manny Pacquiao Says He Fights "Because it's God's will."

There's a film documentary about Manny Pacquiao set to be released probably this year. I'm aware of it because I'm a huge fan of boxing. Narrated by the well-known actor Liam Neeson, the documentary takes on the early life of the popular prizefighter and his rise to global stardom.

The official trailer for the film is now out and at the end of it, Pacquiao proclaims that he boxes "because it's God's will".

I like the man a lot because of what he brings into the ring and his humility, among other things. I can't doubt even for a little bit his sincerity when it comes to his religious beliefs. However, I'm also saddened by it. He has fully put himself in the hands of the imaginary entity he worships. Everything that happens to him and the things he does are God's will.

I would like to ask Mr. Pacquiao, when he got knocked out cold by Juan Manual Marquez during their last encounter, was that God's will as well?

I may not share Pacquiao's religious beliefs, I still am a fan. And I'll be tuning in when the documentary comes out. Here's the trailer:
