Manny Pacquiao has stated that he plans to carry on fighting for another two years, despite winning his latest clash with Timothy Bradley.
The 35-year-old gained revenge over his American opponent, having lost to Bradley in a controversial bout back in 2012.
This time it was Pacquiao who got the decision from the judges, with all three having him as the winner on their scorecards.
Craig Metcalfe and Michael Pernick scored the Las Vegas fight 116-112 for Pacquiao, while Glenn Trowbridge had him as a 118-110 winner.
Pacquiao took the fight to Bradley from the start and although the American enjoyed a decent spell in the fourth round, but the more experienced man responded and always looked stronger and inflicted Bradley’s first defeat.
The victory saw the Filipino claim the WBO welterweight belt, again highlighting his position as a legendary fighter. Pacquiao has won world titles in eight weight divisions, but is keen to continue in the ring.
When asked about the future, the veteran said: “A couple more years. There’s no problem for me. My job is to fight in the ring – any opponent.”
Pacquiao’s latest remarks have led to increased hopes for a long-awaited showdown with Floyd Mayweather.
