He already has eight [title] belts. He can retire — stop — at any time. I want him to stop now.”Mrs. Pacquiao later added: “He is the one who has the last say,” she said. “Boxers risk their lives. [Some] end up in wheelchairs. I don’t want that to happen to Manny.”The 33-year old has earned over $62 million in winnings and endorsements throughout his boxing career, according to Forbes.
