Default Pacquiao mulls retirement from boxing

Pacquiao mulls retirement from boxing

Filipino boxing icon Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao is seriously considering permanently retiring from the ring to concentrate on his role as representative of the lone district of Sarangani in the House of Representatives.

Wearing a crisp Barong Tagalog during the orientation for neophyte congressmen on Thursday morning, Pacquiao disclosed his plan to have his last boxing bout with undefeated American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. this year.

“It depends. But this may be my last (fight) so we can focus on giving service,” Pacquiao told reporters, expressing excitement that he could excel in the legislative process just as he excelled in the boxing ring.

“As a congressman, it is my mission to fulfill and help the people that have been longing assistance from the government. This is my mission and dream. I dreamt of becoming a world champion, now I dream of becoming a good leader and public servant of Sarangani,” he said.

Pacquaio, a Hall of Famer in Ring Magazine, has already filed a bill seeking the creation of a provincial hospital, a college, and livelihood programs for the province of Sarangani.

He said his career of being a boxer and a congressman is only a matter of time management. He vowed to be present in all congressional sessions, promising to lessen personal engagements from now on.

Meanwhile, the boxing champion noted that his friendship with his former partymates in the Lakas-Kampi-CMD, like former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, will not affect his current standing as a member of the Liberal Party.

The neophyte congressman said he is looking forward to his first privilege speech on July 28 or two days after the opening of the 15th Congress this month.

If Pacquiao retires in his prime I will personally fly to the Philippines and punch him in the balls. After that, I probably won't be returning, so I leave my entire estate to LukeO.


And my car to mrtony80.

He can't beat Mayweather without an inside game.

Smart move. He is just giving Floyd an ultimatum. Either fight me and we can make the most revenue for a fight ever or keep stalling because of doubts and I will retire without fighting you.

Just days ago Arum was saying Pac will continue to fight at least 3 more times seeing that the revenue earned could be of good use for his political contributions. You hear different things everyday. I don't put too much faith in Arum but what he stated does make sense. In any case, I'm tired of nonsense and can't wait 'til next weekend to find out if we'll get the fight or not. Maybe Mayweather will pull a Lebron move and set up a 1 hr special event for his decision. That would be laughing material.
