Manny Pacquiao’s son, Emmanuel Pacquiao, has suffered a major upset defeat in his fourth amateur boxing bout.

Although Manny Pacquiao himself might be done boxing, his bloodline certainly is not. Recently, Pacquiao’s son, Emmanuel Pacquiao, began his own journey in the world of boxing. He started off with an unblemished 3-0 record as an amateur.

However, that all came to a close recently, as Pacquiao was defeated by Chris Smith from the Irish Center in San Fransisco. It’s said that Pacquiao was involved in some heavy exchanges and fought well throughout the contest.

However, when it was all said and done, the judges awarded Smith the decision victory. Of course, being the son of one of the greatest boxers of all time, Emmanuel Pacquiao is sure to face a ton of scrutiny.

With that being said, he’s only competing as an amateur at the moment, and as he’s stated in the past, a professional debut does seem to be in the cards down the line.

“At first, I was just quietly going into it and stuff, but I guess it’s unavoidable. I’m trying my best. I have to get used to it,” Pacquiao Jr. said.

“I’ve constantly been training. I’ve been training for months [in the US], and this is all I want: get more experience, get better. “I think we’ll see in the future whether I will turn professional. Right now, I’m just trying to get better, to get more amateur fights, bring my record so we’ll see in the future.”

Pacquiao Jr.’s career is only getting started, and he has a wealth of knowledge in his corner. If his father’s experience wasn’t enough, he also works with legendary coach Freddie Roach, as well as boxing megastar Canelo Alvarez.

It’s even a possibility that his father, Manny Pacquiao, returns to boxing, as his bid for president in the Philippines was unsuccessful.

Boxing great Manny Pacquiao has made his retirement from professional boxing official.

There had been speculation regarding Pacquiao’s future in the sport of boxing, with reports that the legend was considering retirement. Tuesday, the future Hall of Famer made it official with the following video.

Here is some of what Pacquiao had to say in the video (h/t Yahoo Sports).

“It is difficult for me to accept that my time as a boxer is over,” Pacquiao said. “Today, I am announcing my retirement. I had never thought that this day would come. As I hang up my boxing gloves, I would like to thank the whole world, especially the Filipino people, for supporting Manny Pacquiao. 

“Goodbye, boxing. Thank you for changing my life. My family was desperate, you gave us hope. You give me the chance to fight out way out of poverty. Because of you, I was able to inspire people all over the world.”

Pacquiao will now look to express that gratitude by serving the people as the president of The Philippines in 2022 but not before leaving behind a remarkable legacy in boxing. SportsCenter has joined the growing list of those saluting Pacquiao for his legendary career by citing just a few of his unique achievements.

Earlier this year, there were rumblings of a potential fight between Pacquiao and UFC superstar Conor McGregor. Those talks would die out following McGregor’s loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.

Pacquiao’s career ran for a lengthy span of 26 years, where he accumulated a total of 62 victories.

The WBA Welterweight Title showdown between Manny Pacquiao and Yordenis Ugas is in the books.

Earlier tonight (Aug. 21), Pacquiao and Ugas shared the ring. Ugas put his welterweight gold on the line. The action took place inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It was clear early on that Pacquiao would utilize an aggressive style as he didn’t want to stay on the outside against Ugas. Ugas found a home for the jab but Pacquiao would also return fire with combinations.

In the fourth round, Ugas was warned after landing a low blow. The two continued to trade leather with counter jabs. Ugas had success with the double jab.

Ugas continued to land clean shots with the right hand. Down the stretch, it became clear that Pacquiao knew he had to push the action.

The bout went the distance and the score totals were read. The scores were 115-113, 116-112, and 116-112. All three judges scored the fight for Ugas.

After the fight Ugas said he wants to unify the welterweight titles. When asked specifically if Errol Spence Jr. is on his mind, Ugas said that’s the fight he wants next but he wishes the WBC and IBF Champion a speedy recovery from his retinal tear. The other champion is WBO titleholder Terence Crawford, who is soon to be a free agent after his next fight, potentially against Shawn Porter.

Manny Pacquiao said he doesn’t know if he will be boxing again. He also said he’ll make a final announcement on whether or not he will run for President of the Philippines.
