Manny Pacquiao being fed by his wife after suffering eye injuries in defeat

Manny Pacquiao has been shown being fed by his wife after suffering facial injuries during his defeat by Yordenis Ugas.

The Filipino was comprehensively defeated in a punch-perfect display from the powerful Cuban whose jab left Pacquiao requiring stitches to a cut above his left eye.

He also woke the morning after the fight complaining of blurry vision in his right eye.

Pacquiao was due to consult with an eye specialist as the ring legend considers whether to retire from the sport at the age of 42 after 72 professional fights.

And a video published on social media shows Pacquiao with his eyes closed being spoon-fed by his wife Jinkee.

After his points defeat, the eight-division world champion revealed he rates his chances of retiring at "60/40"as he admitted to struggling to deal with the style of his opponent once his legs "stopped".

“Right now, I’m probably thinking about retirement, I don’t know. 60/40.” Pacquiao told ESPN. "In my heart, I want to continue [to] fight, but I have to consider, also, my body," Pacquiao continued at the post-fight conference.

"When our lives are finished inside this world, we can take nothing," he adds. "In this sport, this is my passion, this is why I'm still here fighting at the age of 42. I'm enjoying it, but sometimes you have to think about the life span of your body."

“My performance tonight was not really 100% because it happened in the second or third round; I have cramping in both legs. I cannot move. So if my legs are not hurt, I can outbox him by moving fast, side by side. But it happened my legs stopped."

However the legendary welterweight has revealed that he would still like to face previously scheduled opponent Spence and Terence Crawford in a potential retirement fight soon, despite his recent defeat.

Will Pacquiao ever return to the ring? Comment below

And despite previous talks regarding a super-fight with Irishman Conor McGregor breaking down, Max Kellerman has backed Pacquiao to secure a "money" fight with the UFC star.

“Now, Manny was asked if this is his last fight, and he said, ‘I don’t know. I need time to relax and make a decision.’ I doubt this is Manny’s last fight," Kellerman told ESPN.

“He’s got too big a name, and he’s still effective and can still make too much money. I don’t know why his camp is against fighting Conor McGregor.

“If I was Manny and could pick up tens of millions of dollars fighting a guy that’s not really a boxer. He’s just a talented fighter who can also box way better than he aught in McGregor’s case. Why wouldn’t you want to do that?"

Pacquiao has also labelled his terms for any potential trilogy fight with undefeated Floyd Mayweather in the future stating that the fight must be "professional".

McGregor has also demanded "commission" from Pacquiao's latest encounter with Ugas after an ongoing contract issue with the Irish star's management company Paradigm Sports.
