Five months after his unanimous loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr., Filipino boxing champ Manny Pacquiao said he had a premonition of the outcome of his fight with "The Money" in his dream, a month before the match.

In an interview with a local morning show in the Philippines, Pacquiao claimed that he had a bad dream one month before their much-awaited fight.

"In my dream, I lost to him. Some things were blurry like there was a problem," he retold.

Pacquiao added that he shared the dream to some of the people on his team and a pastor, who told him to prepare for the worst.

"After the match, I realised that what happened during our fight was the exact thing I saw in my dream," he added.

Asked if he thought God was speaking to him through that dream, the boxer answered in the affirmative.

Uproxx added that Pacman was grateful because he was already guided by the God on what will happen during the game.

"It was already shown me. So I am still blessed because the Lord informed that this would happen," Pacquiao furthered.

He later on revealed that he fought with an injured shoulder which was surgically repaired after the match.

During the interview, Pacquiao also said that he has one more fight left before the May 2016 elections in the Philippines where is planning to run for senator. He is currently the Representative of the lone district in Sarangani Province in the Philippines.

"That's my plan. I'm running for Senator; that's a great responsibility," he said in an ESPN report.

Asked about his potential opponents, Pacquiao said it would depend.

"It would be between seeking revenge (on Mayweather) or alternatively Amir Khan or former junior welterweight titlist Danny Garcia. But I don't know if Mayweather is going to fight again," he added.

However, Pacquiao said that he considers a fight with Khan "most feasible. "I'd like to bring the fight to the Middle East, that would be my plan, I would love to bring the fight to Doha."

As for his retirement, the boxer simply said the sport has fulfilled his dreams and took him to great places.

"It opened many doors for me, enabled me to become a congressman, to be the champion of the people," he added.

Pacquiao also said he has not yet moved on from his loss from Mayweather that is why he needs to fight one more for satisfy his "hunger."
