There was no jaw-dropping moment in Manny Pacquiao's loss to Yurdenis Ugas. There was no shock knockdown like the one from Juan Manuel Marquez. There was no controversial split decision, just like the one against Timothy Bradley that ended Pacquiao's nearly seven-year run of invincibility.
Manny Pacquiao, 42 years of age, was simply outclassed by an excellent fighter in Yurdenis Ugas. The loss has many pondering on whether that was the Filipino boxing icon's last fight in the ring.
But while there's nothing official just year, Manny Pacquiao's wife Jinkee poured her heart out on Instagram in what felt like an ode not just to her husband's loss, but to his entire boxing career.
“To my dear husband Manny💙
Words cannot express how proud I am of the Man you are . Im proud to be your wife . You mean the world to me and all our children . We love you so much . We your family have seen how much you have toiled , sacrified and given of yourself blood sweat and tears since the beginning when you dreamed of becoming world champion . You never think of yourself and not afraid to risk your life on the ring time and time again because you love to make the people happy.
