Manny Pacquiao confirms comeback fight against Vargas

Manny Pacquiao has announced that he will be coming out of retirement, to fight WBO welterweight champions, Jessie Vargas, in November. Pacquiao, who claimed he would retire to focus on his political career in Philipines, revealed this after meeting with promoter Bob Arum in Manila.

“Yes, the fight is on. I have agreed to a November 5 fight with reigning WBO welterweight champion Jessie Vargas,” the 37-year-old said.“Boxing is my passion. I miss what I’d been doing inside the gym and atop the ring.”
Pacquiao’s last bout ended in a unanimous decision against American Timothy Bradley in April. He was then elected to the Philippine Senate in May.
