Manny Pacquiao has held many titles during his glittering boxing career and late on Wednesday he added a new one, Congressman.

After several days of vote counting, the current welterweight world champion was declared the winner in his bid for the Philippines Congressional seat in his home province of Sarangani.

The political pugilist won't be ending his boxing career, with plans for a bout in November now in the works.

No opponent has been named, but Pacquiao's camp says they hope to start negotiating the much-anticipated match-up with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Pacquiao won his electoral fight on a promise to help the poor in his impoverished province - and in his first comments after his election, stated he will fight as hard for them as he has in the ring.
