MANILA, Philippines -- Manny Pacquiao says he plans to retire in three years and doesn't see himself boxing beyond the age 35.

The boxing champion also told a news conference in Manila he's willing to fight Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez again but that the match would probably not excite fans. He sounded doubtful himself, saying "I would not watch Pacquiao vs. Marquez."

Congressman Pacquiao was speaking in the Philippine House of Representatives on Monday, where he received the highest medal for the second time following his latest victory over Antonio Margarito.
