Manny Pacquiao has revealed that he intends to focus on his career in politics after his showdown with Timothy Bradley on April 9.
Reports had suggested that Pacquiao may attempt to secure a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jnr, but the Filipino fighter has insisted that he will end his time in the sport after his third clash with WBO welterweight champion Bradley.
The 37-year-old told reporters: “I am retiring from boxing to concentrate on my political career. My fight with Timothy Bradley will be my last.”
Pacquiao will be competing for the first time since undergoing shoulder surgery, which he required after losing to Mayweather in May.
