Legendary Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao is planning to run for President of his country in 2022. This was reported by his former promoter Bob Arum.
“I think the younger Manny Pacquiao will be the first President-a boxer who we get. I called him and he said, “Bob, I’m going to run in 2022, and when I win, I want you to be my inauguration,” said Arum, the President of the WBC Mauricio Suleiman.
Note that Manny’s no stranger to politics. In 2009, he was elected to the lower house of Philippine Congress.
Recall that last year, Pacquiao at age 40 became the oldest world champion in the history of Welterweight.
