Manny Pacquiao is determined to fight on, even without Floyd Mayweather across the ring or HBO in his corner. Five months after the fight Pacquiao expected to be his finale, the Filipino senator stood opposite unheralded welterweight champion Jessie Vargas on Thursday and declared his excitement for yet another chapter in what’s now a sprawling pugilistic story with a murky ending.
