Manny Pacquiao says he’s considering running for president

Should we still be surprised?

GMA News Online’s Alex Millson reports that boxer-politician Rep. Manny Pacquiao revealed in an exclusive interview with Agence France-Presse (AFP) that he has "thoughts of running for president in his beloved homeland when he finally hangs up his gloves."

The report noted: "Drawing parallels between his pugilism and politics careers, the former world champion in eight weight divisions said: ’When I started boxing, of course I was planning, you know and thinking about getting to become a champion. So when I enter politics it’s the same thing.’"

Pacquiao then added, "But, you know, it’s far away. It’s God’s will."
