Going Out With A Bang: Pacquiao Might Retire After Mayweather Fight

Floyd Mayweather Says He's Set To Fight Manny Pacquiao This Year

Manny Pacquiao may plan to end his career on the highest of notes: handing Floyd Mayweather Jr. his only career loss.

“It is coming close. We will announce it,” the 36-year-old told local television network ABS-CBN with a meek smile when asked about retirement.

Pacquiao and Mayweather are set to meet on May 2 in what will be the greatest boxing match in years.

Pacquiao said he agreed to take a smaller cut of the purse just so the fight could push through.

“If we only thought about our pride, there would not be a fight. If we had equal pay, the fight would not have pushed through so for the fight to push through, I agreed to it,” he said.

Tickets for the MGM Grand showpiece sold out 15 minutes after they became available.
