Is politics going to be his new arena after boxing?
"Definitely, late this year, gusto na kong pagretirin ng magulang ko. At tama, dahil mahirap ang trabaho ko, so naintindihan ko naman sila," said Pacquiao.
But the Filipino boxing hero, however, said he will have two more fights after his match with De la Hoya.
When asked if he will again try politics after retirement, Pacquiao refused to comment.
Speculations are rife about Pacquiao’s political ambitions as some quarters said his plan to run as congressman of Sarangani is the main reason why he is contemplating about retirement.
The next elections are scheduled in May 2010. [Source]
I hope not. We already have too many Bong Revilla, Lito Lapid and Jinggoy Estrada and the likes in politics.
Pwede na nga magtayo ng circus sa senado.
