Manny Pacquiao says he has a "decision" to make regarding his future after losing to Yordenis Ugas.

Cuban Ugas pulled off a stunning victory over 42-year-old former champion Pacquiao with a unanimous decision to retain his WBA welterweight world title in Las Vegas on Saturday.

The judges scored the fight 115-113 116-112 116-112 in favour of Ugas, who controlled the second half of the contest with his jab as the more aggressive Pacquiao struggled to land his punches on his return to the ring after a two-year absence.

Pacquiao, the only man in boxing history to hold world titles in eight different divisions and one of the greatest boxers of all time, said he is yet to decide if he will call time on his 26-year professional career.

"I don't know, let's just see," said Pacquiao, whose record dropped to 62-8-2. "Let me relax first and make a decision.

"I'm sorry I lost tonight, I did my best but my legs were very tight and that is why I couldn't move as well as I wanted."
