If Jinkee Pacquiao had her way, no more boxing for Manny
If Jinkee Pacquiao had her way, boxing had already seen the last of Manny Pacquiao.
But that doesn’t seem to be the case as boxing’s only eight-division world champion is leaning towards a ring return later in the year just three months since announcing his retirement.
“Advice ko, kung ako, sana wala na,” Jinkee told reporters Wednesday. “Sa akin lang ha. Hindi naman ako magagalit. Suggestion ko lang yon sa kanya.”
Jinkee accompanied Manny to Mahindra’s game against San Miguel Beer in the PBA at Smart Araneta Coliseum where the Enforcer eked out a 105-103 win, the team’s third in as many games.
The two may not share the same sentiment when it comes to Manny’s potential return possibly in November, but Jinkee isn’t going to keep her husband away from his passion.
“Maiintindihan ko naman kung gusto talaga niya. Siguro nami-miss niya mag-practice, siguro hinahanap din ng katawan niya pero okay lang naman kung gusto niya.”
