Manny Pacquiao

Legendary Filipino Manny Pacquiao (58-6-2, 38 KO’s) has abandoned the idea to take part at the games in Rio

Former world champion in eight weight categories Manny Pacquiao announced the abandonment of its intention to participate in the Olympic games in Rio. Boxing Association of the Philippines said that Manny Pacquiao has notified them about the decision not to play in Rio, and instead concentrate fully on his political career.

Recall, a long time Filipino boxer fueled rumors about his possible participation in the Olympics. Thus, Pacquiao wanted to win for his country’s first Olympic gold. Now, after he was chosen Senator, his dream, apparently, was not destined to come true.

As previously reported many times, Pacquiao ended his career recently, having successfully literally every round in the confrontation with the principal rival in the person of Timothy Bradley (33-2-1, 13 KO’s) and having won that via unanimous decision.

We add that the rumors about the participation at the games in Rio Vladimir Klitschko for a long time were also very popular.
