Manny Pacquiao is looking to come out of retirement

In this modern world of boxing, retirement has become a temporary declaration, and after a certain period of time, many fighters come out of retirement and resume their journey. Some of the best examples are Tyson fury, Floyd Mayweather, Sugar Ray Leonard and now Manny Pacquiao.

According to ESPN reporter Mike Coppinger, Manny Pacquiao hopes to return on June 3 and resume his boxing journey. Mike Coppinger tweeted: "Manny Pacquiao plans to fight again, MP Promotions' Sean Gibbons told ESPN. Pacquiao and Conor Benn are in talks, a bout eyed for June 3 in Abu Dhabi, per sources, though Benn is considering two others for his next bout: Kell Brook and Chris Eubank Jr."

Manny Pacquiao may resume his eminent boxing career in June

The boxing legend Manny Pacquiao last fought professionally in 2021 and ended his boxing career with a loss via unanimous decision to Yordenis Ugas.

After which, he returned to the boxing ring for an exhibition match against DK YOO and won via unanimous decision. Manny Pacquiao retired for genuine reasons, he tried to run for president for the Philippines, and as a result of not getting elected, he decided that he wanted to fight again and continue his boxing journey.

He can fight easy opponents, but his potential fight is far from easy. If the deal to fight on June 3 is signed and confirmed, he will be fighting a professional match, not an exhibition event. The legend is expected to face the undefeated boxer Conor Benn whose professional record is 21-0 (14 KO's).

It could be one of the best boxing matches, a clash of skill, speed and experience. Since it's an exciting match up, this event will convincingly do very well from all corners especially pay per view numbers. Pacquiao's return shows the power of passion and commitment; he doesn't 'have' to fight; it's a choice and, more visibly, a true reflection of a champion. (Image source: Marca)
