He previously served as a Senator of the Philippines from 2016 to 2022.
Pacquiao is the only eight-division world champion in the history of boxing and has won twelve major world titles.
He was the first boxer to win the lineal championship in five different weight classes, the first boxer to win major world titles in four of the eight “glamour divisions” (flyweight, featherweight, lightweight, and welterweight), and is the only boxer to hold world championships across four decades (1990s, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s).
In July 2019, Pacquiao became the oldest welterweight world champion in history at the age of 40, and the first boxer in history to become a recognized four-time welterweight champion after defeating Keith Thurman to win the WBA (Super) welterweight title.
Manny pacquiao Return
Former world champion Manny Pacquiao is likely to make a return to the ring. The boxer, who had lost the Philippines presidential polls earlier this year, can be seen in an exhibition fight in Saudi Arabia in January.
The 43-year-old is planning to step in the ring against former sparring partner Jaber Zayani in Riyadh.
“We will just start discussions,” Pacquiao told AFP. He is currently training for a charity bout against a South Korean YouTuber DK Yoo, who has over 650,000 subscribers on the video sharing platform.
Pacquiao graced the fans for 26 long years before calling it quits in August last year. He had to be content with a points defeat to Cuban Yordenis Ugas in his last fight as a professional boxer.
Speaking about his fight against Yoo, the former world champion said: “I will prepare in the same way I train for a real fight.” The charity match against the YouTuber, who posts martial arts video on his channel is scheduled to take place on December 10 in Seoul.
Manny Pacquiao’s next fight could be booked in the near future after his bid to be the president of the Phillippines failed.
If he does return to action in 2022, there are several opponent options that could deliver land him a sizable payday.
Following his loss to welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas in 2021, “Pacman” also came up short in trying to become the president of his homeland.
Assuming he returns to the ring, Logan Paul, Canelo Alvarez, and a Floyd Mayweather, Jr. rematch would be strong possibilities for his next fight.
In August, Pacquiao stepped back into the ring, after two years away, at 42 years old. Originally, he was set to face pound-for-pound superstar Errol Spence, Jr.
However, a detached retina forced him out two weeks before the bout, and in stepped Cuban Olympic bronze medalist Yordenis Ugas.
A man that would go on to stun many in the boxing community and upset the former eight-division world champion.
As of this writing, Manny Pacquiao’s net worth is $220 million.
