Roach: Pacquiao may still consider fighting

Observers, including Freddie Roach, think the boxing icon Manny Pacquiao, will still continue fighting despite announcing his retirement after his fight with Timothy Bradley this April.

Roach says a lot depends on whether Manny wins the senatorial race or not.

Pacquiao is running for senator under the party of VP Jejomar Binay and currently ranking at 8th place among other senatoriables.

Looking at a possible scenario- defeating Bradley will make him WBO welterweight champion. He may be prompted into defending the title even though he’s already a senator.

“I do know Manny well, though. He would love to be the senator who defended his title someday. I don’t think this fight with Bradley is his last fight for some reason,” Roach continued.

“I just don’t see it because he has a lot left in him. His work ethic is still great. I’d be disappointed if this was his last fight. I’ve been with him a long time, we had a great run. I’ll support whatever he does,” Roach added.
