Pacquiao says he ‘may not’ fight again following Ugas setback

Manny Pacquiao says he would take his time before determining his future, but he acknowledged on Saturday he may not fight again after losing to Yordenis Ugas.

He said he will focus on his political career in the Philippines after losing a unanimous decision to Ugas.

“You may not see Manny Pacquiao fight again,” Pacquiao stated. “I don’t know.”

“I’ve done a lot for boxing and boxing has done a lot for me. So, I can spend time with my family and plan my boxing career.”

If Pacquiao’s defeat on Saturday was his last, it ended a dazzling 26-year professional career that cemented his place among the all-time greats.

On Saturday, Pacquiao was outboxed and outfoxed by a skilled, younger opponent in Ugas.
