Manny Pacquiao’s fights in 2009
The Champ of the Filipino people Manny Pacquiao, is going to have another big fight on May 2 this year in Las Vegas . He’s going to fight with Ricky Hatton. According to his promoter Bob Arum, Manny is open to three fights this year. Arum said, Floyd Mayweather Jr is on the line also after Hatton. If Floyd Mayweather is not available this year, Pacman can fight Edwin Valero. Freddie Roach, Pacman’s trainer wants Pacman going up against Hatton and then Mayweather.
Freddie Roach said in an interview on Fighthype.com
“In a perfect world, I would like to see him fight Ricky Hatton and then Floyd Mayweather Jr. and then I would like to see Manny retire and become President of the Philippines .
On Pacman’s side, he wants to retire this year but maybe because another good opportunity knocks at his door, and the people around him believes that this is not the time for him to retire, then Manny will continue to fight this year.
What happens if Pacman will lose this time with Ricky Hatton or whoever his opponent is, will he retire or will he ask for a rematch. In my opinion, I would rather want Manny to retire after this fight, win or lose because he has already lots of money, lots of investments I am sure and he has a model endorser career now so what other things can he ask for. You guys, what do you think, is it good that Manny will retire this year or not?
