Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao has arrived in the US to begin what may be his final press tour.
Pacquiao, with wife Jinkee and adviser Michael Koncz, is in Los Angeles for the first stop of the media tour to promote his third fight with American Tim Bradley.
The one and only 8-division world champion insisted that the Bradley bout will be his last.
"Last fight, last fight. Going to retire after this," Pacquiao said per Steve Angeles of ABS-CBN News.
The media tour will begin in Los Angeles and will end in New York.
Pacquiao will be facing Bradley for a third time. The American champion won the first bout in a highly-controversial split decision before Pacquiao came back to win the second via unanimous decision.
Pacquiao also said that his shoulder, injured and aggravated during the Floyd Mayweather fight, is now in good shape.
Paquiao-Bradley III is scheduled on April 9.
