Jinkee Pacquiao won’t be at ringside at The MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 12th when her husband, Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao, tries to reclaim his old title from WBO welterweight champion, Timothy Bradley Jr.
Mrs. Pacquiao informed this Philboxing.com and Abante author that she is due to give birth at the end of April and has decided to stay in the Philippines instead of watching at ringside of which she is a regular every time her husband steps in the ring.
“I’m staying here because I’m giving birth at the end of April,” said Jinkee Pacquiao.
The Pacquiaos are expecting their fifth child next month. They have four children, Emmanuel Jr., Michael, Princess, and Queen Elizabeth.
Jinkee said that Manny understands why she can’t be there to support him at the venue and that she is sad that she won’t make it in Las Vegas when her husband fights Bradley Jr for a second time in two years.
Bradley Jr. of Palm Springs, California, won their first meeting in June of 2012, also at The MGM Grand in Las Vegas, via a controversial Split Decision victory.
Manny Pacquiao is looking to avenge that defeat and take back his old title as one of the champions of the 147 pound division.
“He understands because of my situation. I’m a little bit sad that I couldn’t come but I don’t have a choice. I just pray for everything.”
Mrs. Pacquiao also informed Philboxing.com and Abante that she will be giving birth at their home province of General Santos City.
