Manny Pacquiao- Where’s his boxing career?

Boasting of a record of 62 wins (39 KOs) in 71 professional fights, Pacquiao is the only eight-division titleholder in the sport. Even though he is 42 now, the Filipino is still a problem for the active pugilists.

In 2019, he vanquished Adrien Broner and Keith Thurman, but didn’t box in 2020. That said, Pacquiao’s political role puts a huge additional responsibility on him and COVID-19 hurdles blocked him from active competition. Nevertheless, he can return soon and accept a couple more fights before he hangs his gloves.

He has desired to fight either unified welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. or former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor in a boxing clash. Both the options are enormous and lucrative. At this stage, Pacquiao can handpick his opponents with nothing more left to prove.
