Manny Pacquiao on Bin Laden, Haters, Mosley, More

by Michael Marley

LAS VEGAS—The World According to Manny Pacquiao:

On the execution of Osama Bin Laden - “That was a good result for Barack Obama...”

On those who are jealous of his huge success - “You can't blame them, some people...They get jealous and you just stay humble.”...

On what almost age 40 Sugar Shane Mosley brings into the ring at the MGM Grand Saturday night - “He's got hand speed, foot speed and he is strong. You can't underestimate him.”

On whether he will still be fighting when he is 39, creeping on to his 40th birthday - “I think, I think not...(big smile)”...

On dealing with the media and getting negative press occasionally - “On being negative, it's part of being famous....I am happy with a lot of people around, and the media because without them, I am not going to be Manny Pacquiao.”

On dividing time between boxing and politics - “I have the time for boxing, I have the time for politics. Boxing is a sport and politics is different. There's no cheating in boxing but there is in politics.”

On his mission of helping the less fortunate in his homeland - “I wanted to this at the age of 16, I am just not imaging how I can do it. I feel what they (the abjectly poor people) feel because I have been there.

On his religious devotion and humility - “We have to look to God because He created the universe. It is just common sense to follow his law. I want to keep it simple. I am not thinking of myself as any big man. I don't want to be, what is the word....arrogant.”

On when he will quit the ring, how he will know when it's time to exit - “I told Freddie (Roach) if he sees me being lazy in training to just tell me. Freddie Roach is not just my trainer, He is like my father. He and my father are about the same age.”

On whether he wants his children to try boxing - "No, I don't want this for my children because boxing is hard, And if they try it, we don't know if any of them can be a Manny Pacquiao. Boxing is so hard in training and so hard in the fight.”
