    Manny Pacquiao ready to devote more time to PBA, Mahindra after retiring from boxing

    Expect retired boxer Manny Pacquiao to spend more time in the PBA soon. 

    LOS ANGELES - Finally through with boxing, Manny Pacquiao is now looking to turn his attention to his other passion - basketball.

    The newly-retired boxing superstar said he plans to concentrate more on handling the affairs of the Mahindra Enforcers in the PBA of which he serves as playing-coach.

    "Madalas na tayo dun," he said about his part-time basketball career that was temporarily shelved when he trained and prepared for his third fight against Tim Bradley.

    Pacquiao, 37, won by unanimous decision against Bradley on Saturday (Sunday, Manila time), after which he announced his retirement.

    Away from boxing, Pacquiao is looking to devote more of his time sitting on the Mahindra bench - aside from attending sessions in the Senate should he win in the coming national elections.

    "Tututukan na natin yun," he said of his stint in the pro league.

    But Pacquiao's PBA comeback will have to wait as he will be busy in the campaign trail for the elections once he returns to Manila this week.

    Mahindra remains in the running for a playoff spot in the Commissioner's Cup, with its game against Star on Wednesday (Manila time) set determine if the Enforcers will advance to the next round or not.

    Pacquiao last suited up for Mahindra early in the season-opening Philippine Cup.
