Multi-division boxing titlist Manny Pacquiao has been proclaimed senator by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) in the Philippines.
Pacquiao who is also an incumbent congressman of the lone district of Sarangani finished the senatorial race at 7th place. He will end his term as congressman on 30th June 2016 and will commence duties as senator on the same day.
Now that Pacquiao won a senate sit, Arum said in an interview that any possibility of Filipino champion coming out of retirement and fight again “is out of the window.”
Pacquiao announced his retirement from the sport of boxing after winning a third fight with Timothy Bradley Jr. in April in Las Vegas.
