Filipino boxing hero Manny Pacquiao confirmed Wednesday that he is coming out of retirement to fight World Boxing Organization welterweight champion Jessie Vargas in November.After winning a unanimous decision against American Timothy Bradley in April, Pacquiao had said he would retire to focus on his political career.Vargas (27-1, 10 KOs), a 27-year-old American, said last week he was in talks with Pacquiao's camp to hold a fight in Las Vegas.Filipino boxing pundit Ronnie Nathanielsz told AFP the Vargas fight might not be as easy as Pacquiao's previous bouts because the Filipino boxer is 10 years older than Vargas and has been dividing his time between politics and sport.
