Filipino boxing superstar and Congressman Manny Pacquiao revealed that he plans to run for governor of Sarangani province in 2013.
The revelation was made during a press conference for his 3rd fight with Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas. “Maybe by 2013 Iâ€™m running for Governor and itâ€™s going to be hard for me to continue my boxing career.” Pacquiao said. “[I]tâ€™s going to be hard to continue my boxing career because itâ€™s seven days a week and 24 hours a day. Itâ€™s going to be a lot of work in the office,” hinted Pacquiao if he does become governor. Meanwhile, promoter Bob Arum together with the pound-for-pound king and his advisors have devised a strategy for the next two years that is aimed toward him fighting five more times before retiring.
