While Cheng was the brains behind this collab, he organized and worked with his team of in-house artists, including Danwin Bringas and Christian Azaña, as well as with Ivan Tracy Pastoler, head of Pacman Design Team.
“I’ve always wanted to do a collab with Manny and after eight years, finally he agreed,” Cheng told Esquire Philippines.

Manny “the Pacman” Pacquiao is recognized as the greatest pound-for-pound fighter by numerous news and boxing sites including ESPN, Sports Illustrated and The Ring and is seeded by Ranker’s list as the best boxer of the 21st century. He is the first fighter to ever win world titles in 8 weight divisions with 12 major world titles.
Cheng made a name in the streetwear scene for his massive limited edition shoe and apparel collection. He is also an avid collector of modern as well as rare vinyl toys, has a large social media following, and uses his influence to help restaurants out who need a push in promoting their businesses online during the start of the pandemic.

Secret Fresh started off as a “toys for Bigboy” passion project catering to collectors of limited edition and artist vinyl toys that are highly sought-after in a very niche toy market. The passion for collecting led Cheng to do collaborations with artists that became a serious undertaking from a childhood pastime to become a hub for developing talent. Secret Fresh then branched out to curating some of the hardest-to-find streetwear brands and labels and also began collaborating with various iconic brands and artists.
Cheng eventually put up Secret Fresh Gallery, a serious modern art space, and started working with the biggest names in the art scene like BenCab and Ronald Ventura. Located in a building that he owns along Ortigas Avenue called the Ronac Art Center, the gallery has become the epicenter for contemporary street fashion, design and lifestyle, and the building itself is a landmark of innovative architecture.
