By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - Manny Pacquiao is set to retire from boxing and the official announcement is coming very soon. This is according to the Pacman himself. Yesterday at a press briefing to help hype his upcoming November 12th battle against Juan Manuel Marquez, Pacquiao made it clear that because he's already satisfied with what he has accomplished in his career and that his official retirement from boxing is coming soon.

In reference to his upcoming fight against Marquez, Pacquiao stated: “I don’t really need this fight. I’m already satisfied with what I have done in boxing."

When probed if this meant he would be retiring from the sport soon? Pacquiao admitted that it did, stating: "I will make an official announcement soon."

Now normally I would not buy the retirement hyperbole from a guy who is at the top of his game, loved by all and making millions... but in the case of this particular icon, I tend to believe him.  First, for the last couple years I am sure you've bumped into a headline or two where dear Mother Pacquiao has pleaded with her loyal son to retire from the hard knocks.  Second, he is a congressman and his political aspirations in his home country of the Filipinos is well known.  Third, he is a winner to his people, a treasure, an icon... he'll want to go out on top and looking pretty.

So is Pacquiao telling the truth when he says he will retire soon?  I have no reason to doubt him.  At the same briefing yesterday,  Pacquiao added: “It’s not gonna be long (before retirement from boxing), I wanna be in the executive in 2013. It’s gonna be hard for me to be doing both.” (Implying he would be running for Mayoral or Governorship position in Filipino Politics and Boxing would be hard to keep in the mix) .
