Manny Pacquiao announced his retirement from boxing on Wednesday through an official announcement on his social media. The Filipino, who was named World Boxing Association (WBA) Centennial Champion this week, put an end to one of the most impressive careers in the history of the sport.
He recently faced Yordenis Ugas for the WBA super welterweight championship and lost in a close decision at 43 years of age, in a gallant demonstration and to the delight of the public, who have appreciated his extensive career.
Manny Pacquiao: “To the greatest fans and the greatest sport in the world, thank you! Thank you for all the wonderful memories. This is the hardest decision I’ve ever made, but I’m at peace with it. Chase your dreams, work hard, and watch what happens. Good bye boxing.”
