LAS VEGAS – The David Copperfield Theater played host to the final press conference of the Pacquiao-Bradley trilogy.
Pacquiao was quite sentimental as he bid farewell to his boxing career.
Pacquiao reminisced his first fight at the MGM Grand in June 2001 and the hardships he had gone through before becoming a boxing superstar.
For a brief moment, the Pacman’s ring rival became his political ally as Timothy Bradley gave an endorsement during Wednesday’s press conference.
“He is truly, truly – to me – the only one out there that’s going to do right for the Filipino people in the Philippines,” said Bradley.
Meanwhile, some boxing analysts don’t believe this will be Pacquiao’s final fight.
“I’m still not convince this is his retirement fight,” said HBO analyst Kiran Maldany. “He said this initially it was and he seems to be backing off that a little bit so im not sure. “I’m intrigued by this fight.”
“I don’t believe that this is his final fight,” said Kevin Iole of Yahoo. “I think he is going to fight again but if it is his final fight it is a historic thing because Manny has been one of the greatest fighters in his generation.”
Although the April 9 Pacquiao versus Bradley match is a non-title fight, the victor will be taking home a 12-carat legacy belt.
