It’s official: Manny Pacquiao retires from boxing

MANNY Pacquiao officially announced his retirement from boxing on Tuesday.

The development came nearly two weeks after he announced he was running for president.

“It is difficult for me to accept that my time as a boxer is over. Today, I am announcing my retirement,” Pacquiao, 42, said in an emotional video posted on his Facebook account.

“I never thought that this day would come,” admitted the “Pacman,” who retires with a record of 62 wins, eight losses, and two draws. Thirty-nine of his victories came by knockout.

“As I hang up my boxing gloves, I would like to thank the whole world, especially the Filipino people, for supporting Manny Pacquiao.”

Pacquiao posted a 14-minute video titled “Good bye boxing” on his official Facebook account that details, among others, his boxing journey. He also thanked those who have been part his long career.
