MANILA, Philippines—Buboy Fernandez is not discounting the possibility that Manny Pacquiao comes back from retirement.

Pacquiao is slated for an exhibition fight in December against South Korean YouTuber DK Yoo in a still to be announced venue.


It’s also possible that the “special boxing match” against Yoo could lead to Pacquiao’s ring return as far as Fernandez is concerned.

But Fernandez, Pacquiao’s childhood friend and longtime trainer, said that it’s all up to the former welterweight champion if he does decide to unretire.


“Depende pa rin sa kanya kung talagang babalik siya sa ring,” Fernandez said Wednesday at Shangri-La Fort where Pacquiao and Yoo are scheduled for a contract signing and press conference.

(It still depends on him if he returns to the ring.)

“Hindi natin masabi pero sabi ko nga (we can’t really say but like I said), it’s possible,” Fernandez added.

Pacquiao, 43, hasn’t fought since dropping a unanimous decision loss to Yordenis Ugas in August of last year.
