If Jinkee Pacquiao had her way, boxing had already seen the last of Manny Pacquiao. But that doesn't seem to be the case as boxing's only eight-division world champion is leaning towards a ring return later in the year just three months since announcing his retirement. READ: Pacquiao: Boxing is how I help my family "Advice ko, kung ako, sana wala na," Jinkee told reporters Wednesday. "Sa akin lang ha. Hindi naman ako magagalit.…

Let’s all ask Sen. Pacquiao first »

(HISTORIC SHOT: Congratulations to the multi-awarded photographer Raffy Lerma of the Inquirer, who scored what could be equal to a world championship knockout punch with his front-page picture of a weeping woman hugging her lifeless partner, an alleged drug pusher shot and killed by motorcycle-riding gunmen in Pasay last Saturday. It’s an authentic frame for the ages—aptly described as a modern-day Pieta—shining in its genius, integrity, dramatic sharpness and gripping…

It's only been three months since Manny Pacquiao announced his retirement, but that is long enough for him to miss the sport that made him who he is now.

IF PLANS pitting Manny Pacquiao and Terence Crawford on Nov. 5 pushes through, the Filipino legend will have to shed more weight than he’s used to. After beating Ukrainian Viktor Postol by unanimous decision in Las Vegas Saturday night (Sunday in Manila), Crawford announced that he intends to stay as king of the light welterweight division. Pacquiao has fought as a welterweight (147 lb) since 2012, including his “farewell victory” over Timothy…

Would Crawford stay with Pacquiao? »


TERENCE Crawford, as reported by former LA Times sports editor Bill Dwyre, drew a $1.7 million windfall from his lopsided win over Viktor Postol of Ukraine to unify the WBO and WBC light welterweight crowns in Las Vegas. They ask now: How much would Bob Arum pay Crawford to fight Manny Pacquiao? Arum, with a very satisfied wide grin, brushed aside questions on the almost-sure Pacquiao-Crawford showdown, claiming the night was…

LAS VEGAS — Terence Crawford was so sure of his victory Saturday night that he spent part of the final round with his hands at his side, taunting Viktor Postol. What he's not so sure of is that Manny Pacquiao will agree to his terms and fight him at 140 pounds in November. "It will be at 140, definitely," Crawford said. "But I'm going on vacation now. We're not worried about Manny…
