I am convinced that Manny Pacquiao shall not retire until he fights the big names of boxing in the Junior Welterweight Division (stuffed lightweights and scaled downed welterweight).
Why am I saying this? Simple. Pacquiao is surrounded with personalities that want him to fight as many as he could before he retires. For the simple reason: money and more money!
It is only Aling Dionisia, his mother, and perhaps this unknown writer, that suggested of retiring while still on top of the heap. I am not saying the Pacman is unbeatable and is going to beat all these boxers in one big swoop! He could, in my honest opinion, be defeated by, say, Mayweather or Mosley.
And that will make it more interesting then. A return match shall promise more money coming! Come to think of it, the guy has still two to three years of good boxing years left in him.
And believe me, at the rate these people are egging Pacquiao to fight some more, and the history of Paquiao acceding to their desire, it's just unbelievable such thing could happen.
And the elections? Forget it. The Filipino voter could be fanatics about Paquiao's ring exploits, but when it comes to politics, they know better. Remember, Paquiao already lost a congressional election, not because he is unpopular.
But because he is that popular as a boxer that these same people who did not vote for him wants him simply to continue boxing instead of serving a term in Philippine Congress!
And the tons of money that he already earned and will be earning? Well, one will be surprise that in the situation Pacquiao find himself, money is just like something that is being fast gobbled up by a one big sinkhole!
In fact, even if by an outside chance Pacquiao wins the election, then, the more money he will need to dole out to these people. It's really insane they way things are bound to happen. So better watch out for that big run away truck of Manny Pacquiao. Its coming our way!
