Manny Pacquiao might be done after loss to Yordenis Ugas, but his legacy is one of a kind
Manny Pacquiao sits in the ring in front of the media, sunglasses covering his freshly stitched face. The shades help Pacquiao avoid detection of his battered eyes, but he can’t evade the question he knows is facing him; the question he perhaps can’t answer for himself.
Yordenis Ugas might have helped bring some clarity to his answer, as he earned a clear victory over Pacquiao Saturday night. Two years ago, it was a different story against Keith Thurman, when Pacquiao won his fourth world title at 147 pounds.
The boxer took to his official page to post the following message below
I want to thank God for giving me the strength to fight. I thank my family for always standing beside me. I wish to congratulate Ugas and his team. Although I hoped for a different outcome, I wish him the best.
Thank you to the fans all around the world who were watching. Thank you to every Filipino that has ever supported me. I’m so proud to represent my country. I’m sorry I could not give you a win, but I did my very best. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! God bless you all! Mabuhay! 🇵🇭🇵🇭
