MANILA - Manny Pacquiao’s wife, Jinkee, said now is the time for the boxing champ to hang his gloves and retire, having proven himself to the whole world.
Jinkee, who is in General Santos City waiting for the birth of her fifth child, told Pacquiao: “Gaano ba karami ang pera na gusto mo sa mundo kung malayo ka sa pamilya mo?”
She said Pacquiao has proven a lot after this second match, which was meant to snatch back the WBO welterweight belt from American Timothy Bradley.
“Na-prove na niya ang lahat, ang kakayahan niya. Pwede na siyang bumitiw,” she said.
She also said Pacquiao is already 35 and not getting any younger. “Mahirap din iyon, nagkaka-edad na rin siya. So, pwede na. Wala na siyang dapat i-prove.”
Reporters immediately flocked to the teary-eyed Jinkee after it was declared via unanimous decision that her husband won.
All throughout the 12 rounds, Jinkee was seen cradling her womb. She is expected to give birth within the month.
“Tumitigas [ang womb] kapag nate-tense ako. Kinakabahan,” she explained.
