Rappler Talk: Manny Pacquiao and his political, boxing future in 2022

Rappler reporter Camille Elemia speaks with the world boxing athlete turned Senator Manny Pacquiao

Senator Manny Pacquiao has greatly transformed in just a span of one year – from being a staunch defender of President Rodrigo Duterte, he is now one of Duterte’s newest enemies.

He is seen as a potential presidential bet in the May 2022 presidential elections. While the world boxing athlete has yet to announce his plans, his moves seem to point to one direction – a bid to run for higher office.

With his loss to Yordenis Ugas, will Pacquiao now focus on his fight in the political arena?

Rappler reporter Camille Elemia sits down with Pacquiao to ask him about his political plans, his decision to go against the President, and the future of his boxing career.
