`Retiring` Pacquiao vows to wrap up with bang

Johannesburg : Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, who has not competed since his last year’s defeat against American rival Floyd Mayweather, has vowed to sign off his career in style when he takes on Tim Bradley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Talking about his farewell bout, the 37-year-old said he is looking forward to win the fight convincingly, adding that it was a part of his legacy, Sport24 reported.

Insisting that he still had a killer instinct, Pacquiao admitted that he was still passionate about boxing and believes his long absence from the ring had made him hungrier to win.

Pacquiao, who had earlier refused to rule out a possible return in boxing ring, would call curtains to his illustrious career in order to concentrate on politics, where he is seeking to win a senate seat in May elections in Philippines.

Pacquiao has won 57 fights and lost only six bouts in his professional career of more than 20 years. (ANI)
