Is it over for Manny Pacquiao inside the boxing ring?

MANNY PACQUIAO – Monico Puentevella, the spokesperson of the senator and boxing champ, said that the Pambansang Kamao is not yet retiring from boxing.

According to him, although the boxing icon will be busy from his presidential bid in the 2022 elections, that doesn’t mean that he will hang his gloves for good.

“[He’s] not yet [retiring from boxing] because he doesn’t talk about boxing anymore,” his spokesman said.

The eight-division world champion came from an upset defeat with Cuban fighter Yordenis Ugas via WBA welterweight title match last August 22. He lost to Ugas through a Unanimous decision (115-113, 116-112, 116-112) after 12 rounds of boxing.

His loss was then followed by questions about his retirement. However, Pacquiao has not given any definite answer about his boxing career.

Pacquiao accepted his party’s nomination to be their presidential candidate for the upcoming elections almost a month after his bout with Ugas.

At the time, Toni Gonzaga uploaded on her YouTube channel an interview between her and PacMan wherein he said that his boxing career was over.

But Puentevella, a former mayor of Bacolod City and chief of the country’s weightlifting association thinks that if he could be the next president, his bout against Ugas would be his last fight.

It was on Sunday, September 20, Manny Pacquiao, a boxer-turned-politician announced his presidential bid under the PDP-Laban party.

His announcement to run for president in the upcoming polls earned mixed reactions.

Among those who are considered top candidates in the presidential elections are incumbent Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, Senator-boxing champ Manny Pacquiao, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, Vice-President Leni Robredo, and former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. However, the aforementioned politicians are yet to confirm if they are running for the said position or not.
