Why people want Pacquiao-Mayweather superfight
MANILA – Filipino boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao has nothing left to prove in his boxing career, according to his wife Jinkee, who has asked the Pacman to retire from the sport.
Some social media users agree with Mrs. Pacquiao, saying that retiring while on the top of the boxing world will be a graceful exit for the Filipino ring icon.

But while some are wishing for a graceful exit for the Pacman, many Filipino fans are not yet giving up on a possible clash between Pacquiao and American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Pacquiao has said he will not retire just yet and his boxing journey will continue after regaining the WBO welterweight title.
On Monday, TV Patrol asked on Facebook and Twitter: "Sino na ang gusto mong sunod na makalaban ni Manny Pacquiao?”

But before fighting anyone in ring, netizens said the Pacman should prepare to face the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) first.
