It looks like Manny Pacquiao isn't ready to hang his gloves up for good yet. 

After showing the world that he's still in the upper echelon of the boxing world with his unanimous decision win over Jessie Vargas in early November, the 'fighting senator' may be fighting some more in the future. 

In fact, the eight-division champ says that he feels way younger than he actually is. 

"Ang feeling ko, mga 25 lang ako eh. Nasa mga 28 lang ako, ganoon," Pacquiao said on ANC's Headstart with Karen Davila. 

The 37-year old credits his longevity to hard work, and says that he still believes in his skills inside the squared-circle. 

"Naniniwala pa rin ako sa kakayahan ko, disiplina lang kasi ang kailangan, how you discipline yourself, and work hard."

While currently focusing on his work as a senator, people have started talking about the Filipino pugilist making a return in the springtime, and once again, Mayweather rematch rumors have also gained traction. 

Pacquiao maintains that it's all up to the unbeaten fighter, who says that he's still retired. 

Speaking of retirement, when does Pacman expect to call it a career? 

"Pagka dumating na 'yung time na tamad na ako," Pacquiao said. "Once na mag-iral na 'yung may katamaran ka na, doon na magsisimula 'yung decline ng performance mo at ng body mo."

With the looks of things, Pacquiao isn't slowing down any time soon.
