Manny Pacquiao‘s wife was among those stunned by the huge right-handed punch that Juan Manual Marquez sent into Pacquiao’s face last Saturday night, knocking out the Filipino champ and giving Marquez the victory. Pacquiao’s wife, Jinkee, was reportedly restrained after seeing Pacquiao go down, screaming and crying as he remained motionless for a couple of minutes. It’s a sight she never wants to see again. “It’s the first time I’ve seen him like that, lying on the canvas, and I was scared,” Jinkee said, according to USA Today. “I know he is still [capable] of fighting, but for me there is nothing to prove. He already has eight [title] belts. He can retire — stop — at any time. I want him to stop now.” Pacquiao has made plenty of money in the sport and is also forging a career in politics outside the ring. At 33, he has had to put more time into training, and some speculated before the fight with Marquez that he wasn’t as prepared as he could have been. This may have been a wakeup call. “He is the one who has the last say,” Jinkee said. “Boxers risk their lives. [Some] end up in wheelchairs. I don’t want that to happen to Manny.” Pacquiao said after the fight that he is interested in a rematch with Marquez.
