LOS ANGELES – Although married to a boxer, Jinkee Pacquiao admits she is nowhere to being an expert in the sweet science of prizefighting.

But just like anyone who understands boxing, Mrs. Pacquiao said she knows only one convincing way for her husband Manny Pacquiao to win on May 3 (Manila time) - knock out Floyd Mayweather Jr.

“Kailangan talaga ma-knockout niya si Floyd,” said Jinkee, who spent a quiet Saturday night bonding with her kids by taking a late snack at the In-N-Out Burger joint along Sunset Blvd.

“Siyempre, mahirap ng umasa sa desisyon,” she added without elaborating.

Jinkee was with children Jimuel, Michael, Princess, and Queen Elizabeth, along with twin sister Janet, assistant Bernard Coloma, family friend Jake Joson, and Paul Soriano, who directed 'Kid Kulafu,' a film which depicted the struggles of Pacquiao early in his life. Only baby Israel and dad were not with them.

A week before the highly-awaited showdown pitting two of boxing’s most popular figures today, Jinkee said she without worries.

“Pero siyempre, baka iba na ang pakiramdam pagdating sa Vegas,” said the lovely Mrs. Pacquiao. “Siyempre pinaka-malaking laban ito ni Manny.”

If she could have her way, Jinkee reiterated she wants this fight to be the final one for his 36-year-old husband, stressing there’s no more challenge awaiting the 'Pacman' after Mayweather.

“Kung ako lang, gusto ko sana tama na,” she added. “Pero si Manny pa rin naman ang magde-decide.”
