Pacquiao has reached the peak of his career in boxing. In Philippines, now it is time for his new endeavor in politics. Would it be permanent for him to leave the boxing ring? He has been advised by his coach Freddie Roach that the fight with Clottey would be the last if Floyd Mayweather Jr. will not fight him. The bell of retirement is just around the corner in order to avoid the possible suffering of Pacquiao with Parkinson's disease (PD) if he will retire at the peak of his career. The ideal age to retire in boxing is 35 years old. Although Manny still has around 3 years before he turns 35 this time would be best for him to take off the gloves. If he will continue to fight in the ring beyond the ideal age for boxers to retire the chance of getting a disease similar to what Muhammad Ali has and as well as with his coach's is too high.
