The April 9 fight against Timothy Bradley will be Manny Pacquiao’s last outing in the rings. The eight-time welterweight champion Pacquiao has finally decided to hang his gloves.
Pacquiao lost the fight of his life against Floyd Mayweather last year. The aspiring politician is confident about winning a senate seat in May after his third match with Bradley in April. The 37-year-old dismissed reports saying he won’t quit before he has another bout with Floyd Mayweather, who also has retired after beating Pacquiao.
“I did not say anything like that. Nobody interviewed me about that. I will retire after my April 9 fight,” clarified Pacquiao.
And the ace Filipino pugilist also pointed out that he wants to concentrate on politics after retiring from boxing. “I am retiring from boxing to concentrate on my political career. My fight with Timothy Bradley will be my last,” revealed Pacquiao.
Pacquiao has won 57 fights including 38 knockouts, and lost six. He also registered two draws in his career which spans over 20 years.
