Pacman options: KO or retire

BRISBANE, Australia – Manny Pacquiao will have to knock Jeff Horn out at the Suncorp Stadium this Sunday or he can start considering retiring – for good.

No less than Pacquiao’s adviser issued the statement Sunday, the day after the boxing  celebrity from the Philippines set foot on this cold city by the Brisbane river.

“Manny needs to make a statement. We cannot go and have a 12-round decision,” Mike Koncz told Pinoy reporters at the lobby of the Sofitel Brisbane Central.

It’s the last fight for Pacquiao under his long, lucrative contract with Top Rank, and if the eight-division champion is not impressive, it could be the last of his boxing career.

“If we can’t win decisively we have to think about retirement,” said Koncz.

“I told Manny that. It’s imperative,” the Canadian adviser added of the boxer who retired in April 2016 and then un-retired just seven months after.
