Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Manny Pacquiao has taken his brand name to a new cologne called MP8: Scent of a Champion, expanding his global presence and giving you a chance to apparently smell like the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

The $55 cologne is described as "A top front punch of fresh bergamot, lemon, and citrus followed by combination punches of lavender, sage, vetiver, and a jab of nutmeg at the bottom."

Pacquiao also recently signed an endorsement deal with Hewlett-Packard.

Our friend Luke Thomas of SB Nation MMA offers this thought:

This is the sort of product you launch towards the tail end of your athletic glory years. Coincidentally, it's the last moment to take advantage of elite levels of fame and grift the last remnants of disposable income from adoring fans before they realize buying cologne endorsed by and imaged after an athlete is idiotic.

I couldn't disagree more. Currently, I smell like a loser with a blog. To smell like a winner, I will definitely be buying MP8: Scent of a Champion.*

* No, not really.**

**That was not enough space for an asterisk joke to have full impact.
