Jinkee, who had been married to Manny for more than two decades now, said in her Instagram post that she couldn’t help but take a trip down memory lane upon watching her husband’s retirement video.

She reminisced about all the nerves of having to watch Manny slug it out in the ring and also lauded her husband for weathering all the challenges in his career.

After watching your Goobye Boxing video, naalala ko gaano ako nag-aalala on each and every one of your fights, especially kapag malaki at matangkad ang nakakalaban mo. But you were always full of faith and faced your opponents with courage,” Jinkee wrote in her Instagram post.

Jinkee also said that she thanked the Lord every day for keeping Manny safe and blessing him with success in his career.

Manny formalized his boxing retirement in a 14-minute video as he ended his career with a 62-8-2 win-loss-draw record.

As I hang up my boxing gloves, I would like to thank the world, especially the Filipino people for supporting Manny Pacquiao. Goodbye, boxing. I will never forget what I have done and accomplished in my life. I just heard the final bell, I am done with boxing,” Manny said.

Manny’s announcement came after he accepted the nomination to be the presidential candidate of Partido Demokratiko Pilipino – Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) in the upcoming 2022 elections in the Philippines.

According to Ron Munsayac, the executive director of Pacquiao-led PDP-Laban, the boxer-turned-lawmaker will make his 2022 run for president official on the first day of COC (certificate of candidacy) filing, which was set from October 1-8, 2021.
