Is Pacquiao’s final fight approaching?

Manny Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, delivered a knee-buckling assessment for boxing fans already distraught by the failed Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. negotiations.

“This could be our last fight,” Roach told the Los Angeles Times last week, as Pacquiao heads into the final days of training for his March 13 welterweight world title bout against Joshua Clottey at Dallas’ Cowboys Stadium.

Roach’s sobering speculation about boxing’s biggest star is based on a chain of events that could occur. Pacquiao, 31, is running for a congressional seat in his native Philippines. If elected in May, he’ll represent a community of about 400,000 people in need of improved healthcare, education and employment that the boxer himself was deprived of while growing up in poverty.

“Is this my last fight? We’ll see,” he said after a recent workout. “One never knows. It’s still so early to be talking about this, but I do like the thought of going out on top. We did a lot in boxing, achieved a lot — more than what we set out to do.”
