Won well deservedly in Yordenis Ugas Unanimous decision to defeat Manny Pacquiao In Las Vegas last Saturday, many people expected Pacquiao to hang up his gloves. Instead, the Filipino legend is considering returning to the game with Ugas in January.
Talk to athletesPacquiao still seems to be shocked by the loss to Urgas, who entered the main event in a short time when Errol Spencer Jr. injured an eye. In the ring after the game, Pacquiao said that his leg cramps severely hindered his movement, and he said it again a few days after the defeat.
“In my entire career, Urgas is one of the easiest opponents to deal with,” Pacquiao said. “[Ugas] There is only one style, I should be able to leave easily… You have seen how I moved in battle before. I can’t move in this battle. My legs…stopped just now. “
Pacquiao’s top priority is to try to rise from his status as a senator to the presidency of his home country, the Philippines, which will begin in February. But the Filipino legend believes that before the process begins, he can return to the ring again.
“Yes, I can come back in January. I will take a look,” Pacquiao said. “I know that if I want to, I can play against him in a rematch. I just need to tell [Premier Boxing Champions head] Alheimer. That will not be a problem. I will think about it because I can’t believe that one of the simplest opponents I have ever met has done this. “
