Manny Pacquiao is touted as one of the top boxers in the world of professional boxing right now and has faced the best of the best the sport has to offer. Pacquiao was set to square off against the undefeated welterweight boxer Errol Spence Jr. on August 21st. However, the match ended up being cancelled after Spencer suffered a torn retina in his left eye.
Instead of Errol Spence Jr., Manny Pacquiao squared off against Yordenis Ugas. Many fans believed it was going to be an easy win for Ugas as he is nowhere near Spence Jr.’s level.
However, that was not what happened as Yordenis Ugas went all 12 rounds with Manny Pacquiao and pulled off a shocking upset victory against the former eight-division world champion.
Many fans were shocked at this outcome and it seems even Manny Pacquiao couldn’t believe what happened. After this shocking loss, Manny hinted at retiring as he stated that Pacquiao doesn’t know if he’ll ever box again.
“I don’t know [if I’ll fight again]. Let me relax and think about it [Final announcement is in October for presidency]. I want to help my people.”
Manny Pacquiao: In the future you might not see Manny Pacquiao fight in the ring again. I don’t know.”
Manny had previously stated he’d be open to facing Errol Spence Jr. once he heals up but now that is under question. We will have to wait and see what Manny Pacquiao will ultimately decide for his career.
