Retirement of Manny Pacquiao in 2010

Retirement from the sport for Manny Pacquiao in 2010? Pacquiao is hinting that his next fight could be his last. Perhaps it is a ploy to drive more interest in what will be the TV event of the year when HBO Pay-per-view presents Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather Jr. Or maybe Pacquiao truly wants to retire and enter Politics as he has so often stated and is doing so by running in the upcoming elections in his home country, the beautiful nation of the Philippines. In a recent article done by Abac Cordero of The Philippine Star, Cordero quotes Pacquiao from a TV show that aired very recently, in which Pacquiao tells the TV audience that his upcoming fight against Mayweather Jr. (propsed for March 13th on HBO Pay-per-View) could ultimately be his final fight and then retirement. Well, the boxer now being considered as the greatest of his era thinks so. Pacquiao told the TV audience in his native tongue (English translation by Abac Cordero): "Baka last fight ko na (It could be my last fight)." The keywords for me is "could be", because personally I want to see a lot more of Pacquiao in the next coming years... but who could fault him from wanting to retire after Mayweather Jr.? Especially if Pacquiao defeats Mayweather Jr... I couldn't think of a better way to fly into retirement than on the wings of such a victory. Well folks, bottom line... March 13th could be the last live Pay-per-view you can catch on your TV featuring Pacquiao... Like we needed another reason to purchase this hot event!
