Gospel minister and professional boxer Manny Pacquiao defeated rival boxer Timothy Bradley Jr. in Las Vegas on Saturday night, in what the star has called the final fight of his career.

Pacquiao won the welterweight fight by unanimous decision from the judges. The fight at the MGM Grand was Pacquiao’s first since his loss to Floyd Mayweather last May in what had been dubbed the “fight of the century.”


All three judges scored the match 116-110. The MGM Grand had been quoted earlier saying, “Pacquiao may be hanging up his boxing gloves, but don’t count on him going out quietly,” and he didn’t as he claims victory over the worthy opponent.

“As of now I am retired,” Pacquiao said, according to ESPN. “I am going to go home and think about it, but I want to be with my family. I want to serve the people [of the Philippines].”

Pacquiao, a two-term congressman is running for a senate seat in the Philippines in an election which holds in May. Should he win — and he is one of the favorites — it would be almost impossible to remain an active fighter, according to AP.
