Manny Pacquiao can still fight 2 times a year if he wins election

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao will not be retiring from boxing anytime soon, according to Manny Pacquiao’s Canadian adviser Michael Koncz in a report by the Manila Bulletin, Manny Pacquiao will continue to fight at least two times a year even if he wins the Philippine congressional seat he is running for in May.

“Even if Manny wins as congressman he can still do boxing — at least two fights a year,” Koncz told the Manila Bulletin.

Koncz believes as long as Manny Pacquiao is capable of being competitive he will not retire because boxing is his main source of income.

“Imagine the money he would lose in his every fight at least a minimum of $15 million if he stops boxing,” Koncz said.

If Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeats Shane Mosley on May 1, 2010 and Team Pacquiao and Team Mayweather can come to terms over random steroid blood testing, that super-fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao would earn both fighters over $25 million dollars each and likely be the most lucrative boxing match in history.
