Where Manny Pacquiao will shift focus after re-elected in Phil. Congress?

Manny Pacquiao has been reelected in the Philippine Congress uncontested. He is the representative of the lone district in Sarangani. His wife Jinky also won as Vice Governor in Sarangani in her first attempt to politics.

During the period of political campaign, I seldom heard Pacman talking boxing. His focus at that time was politics. A good thing he must do: to focus on something what he actually doing at hand.

Now that Manny Pacquiao won and reelected as congressman, what will be his next move? Where he will focus his attention now? Is it show-business, preaching or boxing?

Pacquaio, a man who like to do multiple things while in a training for a fight. Some boxing insiders admired him how he handle distractions. But that was before his back to back losses.

Pacquiao's devastating loss to long-time rival, Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez in December some blame for his lack of focus and having too many distractions. It is noted that he skipped Alex Ariza's conditioning training. And show up in the Wild Card Gym two weeks late for the scheduled training due to pressing matters outside boxing.

If Pacquiao wanted to regain his faded glory in the ring, he should shift focus to boxing. He must start to assess himself if there is still fire in him that would fuel him in the ring.
