“People have cast their vote. This election is over for me. My running for president was driven by a desire to serve my country. Influence the lives of poor Filipinos. For now, I would like to take a break and spend more time with my family. I will continue to help our people through his foundation,” Pacquiao tweeted.
Pacquiao, 43, is the only boxer to date to win eight weight divisions. During his career, he won 62 victories (39 by knockout), suffered 8 defeats, and the Filipino ended two more fights in a draw.
