Pacquiao retirement has Arum's blessing

MANILA, Philippines – If Manny Pacquiao ever decides to hang up his gloves, there will be no opposition from his longtime promoter Bob Arum.

Speaking recently to veteran scribe Steve Kim of Undisputed Boxing Network, the Top Rank Inc. chief said he will support Pacquiao’s plan to retire.

“One-hundred percent,” said Arum.

The veteran promoter then brought up the case of undefeated light heavyweight champion Andre Ward, who recently shocked the boxing world when he announced his retirement from the sport.

The 33-year-old Ward is still widely considered to be at his prime, making his decision to call it quits a surprise to many observers and fans.

Arum hinted that it will be a good move on Pacquiao’s part to follow Ward’s example and ride off into the sunset with his faculties still intact.
