Nobody stays forever. We all live our previous life to purchase a new one. That’s a way of life work. We did well in someplace, we achieved the best award and recognition, and then the job is done. We started to look for something new, something to fight again. The World’s greatest boxer Manny Pacquiao life told us the same story. He has become the living legend of boxing. He brings tears to everyone’s eyes when the PacMan announced that he is going to retire.
The news didn’t come as shocking. Everyone has an idea that Pacquiao is putting a full stop to this boxing career. His focus and activities in politics catch everyone’s eyes.
Well, there was nothing to hide anyway. But all his fans and critics knew that Pacquiao won’t gonna stay at boxing for long. Cause he has another dream to achieve. He gave us a forecast in 2016 when he says he is planning to retire soon. But nothing wasn’t sure. And after that conference, he did play some matches. So, fans thought the final day won’t come soon.
Wednesday, 29 September Pacquiao came to Facebook live from Manila. He gave a speech for about 14 minutes. There he thanked all his fellow players, his trainers, all the members he works with, the sportswriters, critics, and especially his fans to be with him in his long career in boxing. He thanked his country people for supporting him in the international fight.
In the video, Pacquiao said, “It is difficult for me to accept that my time as a boxer is over. Today I am announcing my retirement. I never thought that this day would come. As I hang up my boxing gloves, I would like to thank the whole world, especially the Filipino people for supporting Manny Pacquiao.
Review of Manny Pacquiao’s career and analysis of his political career:
Pacquiao had a very good run of 26 years career in boxing. He placed himself as one of the greatest boxers of all time. The record he creates is still unbreakable. He will be remembered with respect in the ring of boxing. He holds a total of 12 major titles in eight different divisions. No players have earned that fame before in their career.
Pacquiao came from a small town and lived his early life very hard. He started his fighting from street level. He fought for only 2 dollars in the streets. From there the Philippines legend makes an asset that is worth more than 60 million dollars. His record in boxing is 62 wins, 8 losses, and 2 draws. He has won 39 matches by knockout.
The PacMan says, “Who would have thought that Manny Pacquiao will end up with 12 major world titles in eight different weight divisions? Even me, I’m amazed by what I’ve done.”
No one doubts his qualification and skill of fight in boxing. But there are a lot of people who aren’t sure how Pacquiao will do in politics or hopefully as the governor of the Philippines. Mostly his lack of experience in politics raising questions. Plus he is a controversial man for hating gay people, supporting drug trafficking massacres, tax evasion, etc.
His fans are hoping that Pacquiao will be able to take control of the Philippines and will remove hunger and poverty from the country.
