Manny Pacquiao's Wife Wants Him to Quit Boxing

Manny Pacquiao's Wife Wants Him to Quit Boxing

The other day, we showed you a video of Manny Pacquiao's wife Jinkee crying alongside her husband during a television interview that was broadcast in the Philippines. In the clip, she said that she didn't want her husband to box anymore. And, recently, she reiterated that point during an interview with USA Today and talked about what it was like to see him get knocked out last Saturday by Juan Manuel Marquez.

"It's the first time I've seen him like that, lying on the canvas, and I was scared," she said. "I know he is still [capable] of fighting, but for me there is nothing to prove. He already has eight [title] belts. He can retire—stop—at any time. I want him to stop now. But, he is the one who has the last say…Boxers risk their lives; [some] end up in wheelchairs. I don't want that to happen to Manny."

She might get her wish soon, even if Manny doesn't like it.
