'If It's God's Will, It Will Be Done': Pacquiao on Faith, Politics and Mayweather
Manny Pacquiao - the first and only eight-division world champion boxer - joined Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" as the latest Power Player of the Week.
Pac-Man was in Washington, D.C., to attend the National Prayer Breakfast and to share his faith in God.
"God has a purpose. He brings me back into his kingdom to use me to glorify his name, to let the people know that there is God who can raise the people from nothing into something," Pacquiao explained.
Pacquiao said his life changed four years ago when he heard the voice of God in a dream and gave up vices such as drinking and gambling.
Even though he openly admitted, "I hate politicians, I hate politics," the national icon won a seat on his country's House of Representatives.
"If I start to go into politics, I think I believe that I can serve more, I can help more people," he explained, adding that he hasn't thought about running for president of the Philippines, but "if it's God's will, it will be done."
Pacquiao's next challenge, however, isn't political in nature. A possible bout against undefeated, 10-time world champion Floyd Mayweather looms, a showdown that fans have been demanding for years.
He said he is hoping to hear from Mayweather and his management team within a week, so they can officially book the fight.
Pacquiao, who is now 36, has been told by some that he should retire, but he says not before he fights Mayweather.
Despite all the boxing accolades, money, fame and the undying love of an entire country, he says he will stay focused on serving a higher purpose.
"When you have Jesus in your life, when you have God in your life ... the most important is God in your heart," Pacquiao said.
