Pacquiao still firm on defeating Mayweather

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao still strongly believes that he defeated American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. in their overly hyped match- “Fight of the Century”- last May 2015.

Pacquiao fought with an injured shoulder and lost to Mayweather via unanimous decision.

Manny was not convinced of his loss, even after almost a year after the fight.

“I never regret (the fight). In fact, I thought I won the fight,” he said, as quoted by Boxing Scene, during a press conference.

“A lot of people, my fans, believe I won the fight,” he added.

Pacquiao is not interested in a rematch with Mayweather. Manny says that Mayweather is retired already and that he is going to retire as well after his fight with Bradley.

“I have another big responsibility in the Philippines, which is serving the people,” Manny said. “My family wanted me to retire before I fought Mayweather. I started this boxing just to help my mother, and I’ll end my boxing career to help the country.”

After his coming fight Bradley, Manny plans on focusing on his political career. He will be running for senator in the May 2016 elections.
