Manny Pacquiao The Only Eight-Divison Champion In Boxing History Will Be Missed.
Manny Pacquiao has decided to retire from professional boxing. The boxing star made the announcement on Tuesday night that he would no again compete in the sport.
On his YouTube and other social media pages, Pacquiao shared the news in an emotional video in which he thanked his family, friends, trainers, and everyone else who had supported him on his path to becoming one of the best fighters of all time. Pacquiao is considered one of the greatest fighters of all time.
Pacquiao has dominated in the ring from the day he competed in his first professional bout in 1995, and he finished his career with a stellar record of 68-8-2 to cap off a remarkable career.
His 26 years in the sport have resulted in wins against men like Keith Thurman, Adrien Broner, Shane Mosley, Oscar De La Hoya, and a long list of other notable opponents.
With his newfound freedom comes the ability to devote his whole attention to his political career, which he hopes will culminate in his being president of the Philippines in the not-too-distant future. He is 42 years old and is now serving as a senator in the Philippines.
“Goodbye, boxing,” Pacquiao added in his video Tuesday. “Thank you for changing my life.”
