Only one person can tell Pacquiao when it's time to quit, veteran ref says

Only Manny Pacquiao can tell if it’s time for him to leave boxing.

Veteran ring official Danrex Tapdasan wants Pacquiao to call it a career, but nobody can make that decision for the world champion.

Manny Pacquiao.
“Ako I want Manny Pacquiao to retire. But if you ask me kung magre-retire na si Pacquiao, my take is he will not retire until the time he knows himself na wala na talaga,” Tapdasan said on Saturday during his appearance on DZMM’s "Fastbreak" with Freddie Webb and Boyet Sison.

Tapdasan said the problem with fighters is they're usually last to concede that they're already past their prime.

“Sadly the great fighters, Oscar de la Hoya, Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, Roy Jones Jr., Bernard Hopkins . . . 100% sa mga great fighters napansin ko, hindi sila nagre-retire after a win. They retire after a loss,” Tapdasan said.

“(Ang boxer) ang huling-huling nakakatanggap na ‘tapos na ang karera ko.’ ”
