predicting

end
up

Manny
Pacquiao:
The
final
chapters
of
a
storied
boxing
career

The
former
eight-weight
world
champion
told
Toni
Talks
that
he
is
done
with
boxing.

“My
boxing
career
is
already
over,”
Pacquiao
said.

“It’s
done
because
I’ve
been
in
boxing
for
a
long
time
and
my
family
says
that
it
is
enough.”

However,
Pacquiao’s
head
of
promotions
Sean
Gibbons
moved
to
water
down
any
retirement
talk
just
yet.

“The
Senator
is
a
presidential
candidate
and
has
made
no
decision
on
his
boxing
career
yet,”
Gibbons
told
Yahoo
Sports.

“He
will
in
the
next
few
weeks
make
a
final
decision
whether
to
have
one
more
or
retire.”

Pacquiao
had
not
fought
competitively
for
more
than
two
years
prior
to
last
month’s
WBA
welterweight
defeat
to
Ugas.

The
Filipino
has
a
62-8-2
professional
boxing
record,
with
39
wins
by
knockout.
