Manny Pacquiao has returned home to the Philippines nursing the wound from surgery on his right shoulder and still a hero to his Filipino fans despite his loss Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Pacquiao says he will focus on recovering from the shoulder injury and his duties as congressman and family man while considering a rematch or retirement. He has said he suffered the shoulder injury during training for the May 2 fight.

Pacquiao and his family arrived early Wednesday and rested briefly in his mansion in the elite Forbes Park residential enclave of Manila.

He later joined fans, supporters and politicians for breakfast at a nearby hotel before a motorcade around the Philippine capital.

He said when he recovers he’ll make an “announcement for continuing my career or announcement for retirement.”
