Pacquiao says he still feels young, will fight on

Manny Pacquiao

MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao is not yet ready to hang up his gloves yet.

In a TV interview Tuesday, the new WBO welterweight champion said he still has some fight left in him.

"Feeling ko nasa 25 or 28 years old lang ako," said Pacquiao, who will turn 38 next month.

"Naniniwala pa din ako sa kakahayan ko. Disiplina lang ang kailangan, how you discipline yourself, how you work hard."

He also said he is open for a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr. should the latter come out of retirement.

"I don't know yet (next opponent). My focus right now is my work (as a senator," he said.

Mayweather, who defeated Pacquiao last year in the richest boxing match ever, retired from the sport and is currently managing emerging boxers. The Filipino icon said he is considering doing the same in the future.

But for now, he said he wants to make the most out of boxing while he still can.

"(Titigil ako) kapag dumating yung time na tamad na ako. Kasi once na umiral yung katamaran, doon na magsisimula yung decline ng performance mo, ng body mo," said Pacquiao, who dominated Jessie Vargas last November 6 in Las Vegas.
