Manny Pacquiao continues to celebrate his dramatic victory over Timothy Bradley. Manny is the most important, influential and charismatic boxer of this and all other eras. He has elevated the popularity of boxing like no one else before him. Manny Pacquiao is a leader and a pioneer of the greatest sport in the world. The old fighting sayiing describing hadn to hand combat, Mano y Mano should be renamed to Manny y Manny. Why not? This phrase speaks of combat and a warrior attitude, and that’s exactly what Manny Pacquiao is. No one has ever been able to reinvent himself from a destructive offensive warrior to a tactical, eloquent boxer with the movement of a poetic butterfly. Manny Pacquiao has the world on its feet every time he steps into the ring. He’s an artist in the squared circle as Leonardo de Vinci was when he painted the Mona Lisa, and their similarities don’t end there. Just as the Mona Lisa is the most recognized painting in the world, Manny Pacquiao is also the most recognizable person in the world. Manny’s reign of terror has continued for over 10 years. His most potent punch that took down many great fighters is the straight left hand. The power and accuracy left many observers asking themselves,how much power does this man posses? The answer is simple. His power is more powerful than the Box Jelly Fish that has a poison that can kill a man quicker than any other poison known to man. That my friends is power. Words can’t really describe Manny Pacquiao’s immense arsenal he carries in the ring. He is considered by most boxing observers to be the greatest fighter ever, and i fully agree with that. In his prime, no one beats him. It’s fascinating to see Manny Pacquiao fight. He has a style that has no style like the legendary Bruce Lee. There’s no description because it’s one of a kind. Let’s thank Manny Pacquiao for being who he is. A great Man, father, son, husband, congressman, athlete, singer, writer, composer, dancer, actor, model and the greatest fighter of all time. Trust me, Manny is the best ever. Manny is the best!

If that’s the case with Manny Pacquiao. Let all fighters who can’t score a KO, who doesn’t fight on PPV and whose PPV numbers are lower than manny’s go and retire. Mayweather’s PPV numbers is the only PPV that’s higher than manny, but he can’t score a KO. So, he might as well retire.

Chris because Floyd is not a big PUNCHER. Manny has a so so defense and was nearly killed by JMM. If he cant keep guys off of him he’s going to get seriously hurt. He has lots of wear and tear.

chris1976

Manny can go back down to 140Lbs and try to win and unify all the belts then retire. Or go fight a flat footed conelo alvarez at 150Lbs and an aggressive, not hard to catch GGG. I think manny can win those fights coz he’s faster and he got power. He may not be the manny of old but yet, he’s hand and foot speed are faster than any other guy from 140lbs-154lbs weight class.

So, the author thinks that Pac should retire so as to let Mayweather off the hook of being a coward. Pac has beaten Bradley two times, but I don’t hear him saying that Bradley should retire, or Hopkins, or anybody except Pac……………

Posted April 18, 2014 11:59 pm 


Livershot

Pacquaio has many fights to choose from other than Floyd Mayweather. Pacquiao can fight Thurman, Broner, Kahn, Alexander, catch weight with Canelo or GGG. Other than Thurman, Canelo, or GGG can cause any physical harm, so fight on.

Posted April 18, 2014 11:10 pm 


chris1976

Both Manny and Floyd are great boxers of their generation. Whether they’ll fight or not, they will be remembered and will make lots of money before retirement. We, as fans of each fighter can argue everyday about their accomplishments, who’ll win if they do fight and to talk about their execuses to why they haven’t fought until now. It’s hard to make a fight when they are unwilling and its easy to make a fight when both is willing.

If everbody is saying tha Manny Pacquiao must retire because he hasn’t KO an opponent since 2009, So, why not let Floyd, Bradley, Malignaggi and other boxers who can’t also score KO’s join the retirement as well. And if you are also saying that Manny’s PPV Numbers are low and he should retire. Then we should also ask all of those active boxers who doesn’t fight in PPV and those who has lower PPV than Manny to also retire.

There are writers who can’t write and fighters who can’t fight.

How can anyone advise somebody to retire from boxing when the person they’re advising makes 20 million dollars a bout and is one of the best boxers in the world? Especially when said boxer needs to pay over 50 million dollars in back taxes which has to come from somewhere. It will take Manny several fights to pay that off.

A writer should retire if he makes 0 cents per written article, and free articles are the only thing he can get published. I’ll bet this writer would work 24/7 if somebody offered him a 100,000 dollar advance on a book. In his dreams.

te tumbo

HIDALGo, i really resent having to hand-hold other posters through a reading of my posts. suffice it to say, that your reading is inaccurate at best and oblivious at worst. i listed the competitive bracket that Floyd is actively not systematically dominating. this bracket includes the best 154lbrs who Mayweather is not avoiding. conversely, there is virtually zero chance that Pacquiao* will consider facing anybody not named Mayweather or Marquez. E-NUFF already. perhaps if Pacquiao* actually faced and defeated a Maidana or Mathysse or Garcia, he could parley those wins into a credible challenge of #1 P4P Mayweather. otherwise, he’s no worthier than Maidana and less worthy than Garcia. bottomline, Pacquiao* is constantly given a pass and allowed to cherrypick the deepest division in boxing and restricting himself to a competitive bracket of two. one of whom is a 40-something who FLATTENED Pacquiao* last time they met. the other Boxing’s Undefeated and #1 P4P who Pacquiao* ducked and sued to keep at arm’s length until he was deemed sufficiently aged, faded, and safe enough for Pacquiao* to challenge. ironically, Pacquiao* has reached the faded stage first and NObody is eager to pay to see that lopsided matchup in Floyd’s favor.

Tumbo pac doesn’t need to fight the likes of Ortiz he has been proven to be a bum. Guerro is nothing special either. Thurman fought a nine time loser last time out and that’s not good enough. Garcia is a great fight and is closer to pacs natural weight. Canelo is struggling to make 154 which is prob 3 divisions above pac natural weight. Don’t be fooled mayweather could fight at 160 he chooses not to. He was talking about fighting at 140 yet years ago in the marquez fight he couldn’t even get to 144 so im not falling for that. He is a very big welter

All you gay boys and gay girls stop arguing and unite to get this fight made…..there the 2 best and iconic fighters over the last era and it terrible it cant be made…..here’s my take on it……mayweather knows pacquiao bri gs something in the ring far more than any fighter he has ever faced and thats hand speed…..foot speed…..endurance …southpaw….tenacity…. and punches from all angles…..and willingness to take defeat along with winning….thats a champion in my eyes…..arum was never the excuse 3 years or 4 years ago so why now……cotto tested mayweather big time and if you watch it closely was a close fight ….7-5 mayweather…..hatton also gave mayweather priblems…..as did de la hoya.. …look what the result was with pacquiao against these 3 fighters…..mayweathers loves to control the tempo with slow footed fighters now who cant take him out his comfort zone ….and although i actually fought canelo could push money all the way it was apparant clearly he is to flat on his feet to test him……we are all on this site for 1 thing and not to kiss mannys arse or suck or to lick moneys feet……we are on it for the sheer spectacle and iconic moment these 2 giants of the ring can create for us who ever wins…….lets bombard mayweather on his facebook wall till he cant say no more excuses….we dont need to with manny because he is a warrior period.. .good easter fellow boxing fans

Anthony Jeffrey.., “Lennox Lewis showed a great deal of courage and intelligence by deciding to retire after beating Vitali Klitschko.”

After bragging for months about what he was going to do to Vitali in a rematch, “I’ll fk up the other side of his face” Lewis retired. The act of a coward.

Lewis was behind on points on all 3 scorecards, and the cuts were caused by illegal holding and hitting, and slashing with the palm of Lewis’s right glove. The fight should have gone to the scorecards.

That was the only fight Lewis ever stopped anyone on cuts — and the only time Vitali was ever suffered threatening cuts. VK is not a bleeder. Lewis was never a cutting puncher.

Manny is an ATG, he fought the best, over 60 fights (how many does floyd have, 46?), came back from controversy/defeat, he is a real fighter, has nothing to prove. Floyd? No matter how you approach it, the number of fights, the layoffs, picking fighters based on anticipated PPV, fighting flat food or fading fighters, etc, he is the definition of a “cherry picker”. That’s what he does. Being a “Floyd” should be immortalized in any dictionary as being a cherry picker. Great talent but questionable character and definitely no integrity or honesty. I do not pity Floyd, he is what he is, a narcissist and possibly sociopath; who I really pity are his fans

If pacman must retire coz he can’t ko his opponents since 2009, then let floyd and bradley join the retirement. Coz they can’t ko their opponent also. The problem with people is they get used to watching pacman KO’s in every fight and when he doesn’t score a KO they’re saying that he should retire. Well, how about floyd? Does everyone enjoy his non-KO boring fights? Why not beg for floyd to retire.

Btw, just look at Pacquiao’s lean and conspicuously mortal profile in the cover pix. none of the deep cuts or bulging muscles that he became notorious for since moving up to 135lbs. no wonder his punches barely dinged Bradley. he’s off the Ariza milkshakes.

if Pacquiao* finally stopped his shameless cherrypicking, i wish he would stick around to help sort out the deepest division in boxing with at least one tour of duty at the gate. Garcia, Thurman, Mathysse, Guerrero, etc., Etc., ETC. there is plenty of competition for Manny* to match-up against. unfortunately, he lacks the conviction of a truly great fighter determined to unify and dominate any single division, i.e., he’s no Marquez or Ward or Mayweather.

Manny Pacquiao is clearly the greatest fighter in the history of boxing. He has accomplished more than any boxer in history, His physical boxing skills, abilities and talent can be matched by no one. He has carried and dominated this beautiful sport for over 10 years. His convincing, spectacular victory of Timothy Bradley last weekend closed the door on who was the better fighter. Manny Pacquiao has no more questions left to answer. The vast majority of boxing fans come to the same conclusion as I do. There has never been a better fighter that fought all challengers regardless of weight class, and brought more excitement to boxing than Manny Pacquiao. Boxing was in a frenzy every time Manny Pacquiao entered the squared circle to take on, and beat yet another world class fighter. He is the number UNO P4P fighter today. His tax issues are being resolved, and he will not be in need of money. His future is secure, trust me. He has so many avenues outside of boxing to make a living from. His endorsement deals are very rewarding financially. He is the most sought after person in the world today. His influence in society continues to make it’s way into every stitch of society. Manny Pacquiao is more than just a hero to everyone, he’s a blanket that clothes peoples hearts. Manny Pacquiao has an aura about him that speaks of love, respect and humility. Manny is a fighter that puts his heart and soul into each fight and asks for nothing in return. He continues to have the discipline and honor he’s always had for the sport of boxing. Manny Pacquaio is a good man in a bad sport. Corruption is always around the corner waiting to get him, but he is the only fighter I can recall that keeps his integrity and loyalty to his friends, family and those that gave him the opportunity to make a living. This is a true and genuine man that will stand up for what’s right in the face of death. We will see the greatest fighter in history fight again. He doesn’t need the arrogant, selfish, materialistic, money hungry Floyd Mayweather. He doesn’t need whining, crying, cheating, lying Juan Manuel Marquez. They need him. Manny Pacquiao has graced us with his presence for many years. I will send a letter asking congress and president Obama to have a day of celebration for Manny Pacquiao once he calls it a day. Manny Pacquiao will break a lot of hearts, and the world must create more oceans so that the tears of Manny Pacquiao will fill them up once he’s retired. Trust me, there will never be another Manny Pacquiao. And also trust me when i say that Manny Pacquiao has a little more work to finish. Manny is the best ever!

No disrespect but Manny beats everyone else apart from Floyd. I don’t see many others beating Bradley either it is frustrating that there is a promoter and network power struggle. That is where the real story is

I think Marquez v Alvarado will be a good close fight, marquez is definitely on the slide……yeh just reading a article where pacman saying he struggling to knock fighters out now cause he should really be fighting at 140 he said he can make 135 still.

I’d like Ward 2 get busy also. He did have surgery so steady is probs his option 4 this yr. I can’t fault Wards hit list so far. Super 6 plus schooling Dawson is impressive. I’d like Ward 2 unify super middle than step up 2 lightheavy. Ward can b boring but he is a master of the sweet science. Great defence, great ring smarts & can fight and win in diff ways…..he’s tricky

Auzbox- yeah I’m pumped 4 Marquez v Alvarado. Both of us been laughed @ on here 4 thinking there could b an upset. I just don’t think Marquez has the fire any more, might b wrong but that’s y they call it gambling. The Ko of manny was the summit of Marquez career there’s only one way from the top? Down. Marquez was a diff fighter v Bradley than he was v PAC. He’s flirted with retirement after the PAC fight….in my opinion once there’s doubt hang them up.

Couldn’t agree more ray ray. I hope ward has a big fight this year but. I’m sick of fighters coasting in there careers. I want to see more fights like Sunday which are 50/50 fights.

Bradley isn’t no.3 pnd 4 pnd in my opinion. He’s good yes, no.3….No. I don’t think a gift v manny in the 1st fight and a close win v Provo gets u the no.3 spot. The win vs Marquez was Bradley’s most impressive but Marquez is pretty much done in my opinion…..no hunger. Hell no should manny retire. Bradley 3, Marquez 5, Provo, Mikey Garcia? People will still pay 2 watch those fights. Manny might not b what he was but he’s still top 3 pnd 4 pnd in my opinion. 1.Floyd, 2.Ward, 3.Manny. Manny has earned the right 2 call it quits when he wants.

Imagine a fighter on a downside still beating a number 3 pound for pound? Where would he be if he is not on the downside?

But the more important question for the author: who would you want to continue fighting from among the top 5 or top 10 pound for pound boxers? Please answer.
Posted April 17, 2014 5:52 pm

That’s what I’m saying: Pac just beat a World Champion, undefeated, who is highly skilled and coming off a clear victory over JMM.

But since Pac didn’t knock him out, he is on the downslide.

He schooled Rios and he is washed up.

Crazy talk.

Now, he may not be that same fighter he was a few years back but neither is Floyd but both keep winning. As long as they want to fight, they should.

I do question if both want to fight more than financial reasons. Yes, financial reasons tends to be number one or two as the priority but most still do it for the passion of competition.

Maybe Bradley should retire to, cause PAC is tonnes better than him. But seriously maybe at the end of the year he should. Nothing left to prove but it would be a sad day for boxing when he does actually hang them up

“But unless he can secure a fight with Floyd Mayweather then now would be the perfect time for him to retire.”

If pacquiao continues to fight, and win, even on his decline, mayweather surely will be under pressure to make the fight. Isn’t pacquaio considered #2 again? So the pressure for the number 1 to fight the number 2 is on again.

Can’t believe… Duran spent over 20 years fighting at welterweight – middleweight … But everyone knows he was only really a lightweight. The same applies to PAC. Floyd is a welter. Sugar ray was a welter. Duran was a lightweight. PAC was a super featherweight. That’s wot the history books will say.
Posted April 17, 2014 5:53 pm

Floyd and Pac weigh the same on fight night although Floyd is physically taller/bigger frame wise with his shoulders/back. He just has light bones similar to Pac and Duran for the lower weight divisions.

Floyd isn’t a true born WW by today’s standards. maybe way back in the day when they had same day weigh-ins. Imagine that, same day weigh-ins? Pac and Floyd could have opted to fight years before they initially were talked about meeting given Pac used to follow what the rest of the fighters did which is to lose weight for the scales and then blow up for fight time while Floyd didn’t like that and just fought in a division closer to his fight-night weight.

i dont disagree with what you say about margs being a tough fight for pac…and a good win….but as far as it being for a 154 title…thats a farce….its just pac tryna be like floyd….

regardless…my main point was….it sounds childish to me for someone to say “floyd is scared of a superfeather”…as if floyd is tryna duck mikey garcia or something…..pac claims a 154 title….been fighting at 147 for how long now? hes a big boy who has played with the big boys….stop tryna put floyd down by saying hes avoiding a fight with a superfeather……not that hes trying to avoid the fight at all….tell arum to let his vendetta go and they can both put on their big boy pants…like i said…if bob were dead and todd knew he wouldnt cause bob a heart attack this fight would be one

Can’t believe… Margarito is a big welterweight but he wasn’t drained against PAC. A big welter against a super feather – Manny was fantastic that night and absolutely destroyed the Mexican. As sensational as PAC looked the advantages in size Marg had were ridiculous. I know people often try and discredit that win, but Marg was still a difficult man to beat at that point for any 147 fighter. And Floyd had been reluctant to fight Antonio, for similar reasons he hasn’t been keen on facing Manny – both were aggressive, high volume punchers with excellent stamina.

Fan’s do not control if manny retires or continue s to fight only manny and his family will decide that.

Pac has been in battles for eons, nothing new and he is still banking 20 million for 2 months work, not a bad gig.

Hopefully he knows when to retire unlike the roy jones of the world.

Bradley is a High Caliber fighter, a Champion, and Pac started to school him after the 4th and now Pac should retire?

That’s like saying Floyd should have retired after his fight with Zab because it was similar with not looking so good early but came on after the 4th. Except Zab was a caliber below Bradley.

Manny will keep coming back until someone beats him to submission and right now no one is in the landscape except Mayweather. While, Mayweather-Pacquiao is every fan’s dream, both fighters can still take the money on the table. Why deny them the money nobody else deserve. Hopefully after Mayweather has earned his 200 million from his Showtime contract fights, then he will tackle his legacy questions, maybe. But if there is no showdown between the two, the whole world knows its because of no other reason than Mayweather refuses to take a risk of losing by agreeing to meet Pacquiao in the ring.

From 140lbs to 168lbs there are talented boxers/fighters ready to take over the spot light shinning on Pacquiao and Mayweather….it’s the way of boxing! Again, whoever is to blame for the match not taking place, both boxers will be noted for not facing eachother during their peak years.

Pac is without question the greatest of our time, regardless of the haters misinformation.
Should he retire, no he should not, however doing a shane Mosley or even worse a roy jones jr, I hope he doesn’t go that route.

Pacs still fighting at a good level he just beat a prime Bradley that I’m a big fan of, so not yet, but It obvious pacs on the downside and doesn’t have much left in the tank, only time and his next performance will tells us were he’s at, ofcourse that depends on his opponent.

FMJ was smart for avoiding the match with Pacquiao during Manny’s peak performing years. And Manny was just as smart by challenging the heavier weighted named fighters at catch weight matches. They both did the boxing fans an injustice by not making that bout a reality, in order to make themselves seem invincible. So where they both go from here and end up, will be their self deserving place in boxing history….both careers will always be tainted by what they didn’t do when it should have.

dont get it twisted, he didnt give marquez another fight because he felt bad or felt generous…he gave him a shot just like the 5th fight thats coming because marquez offers the most money and who im sure bob arum thought and thinks has been shot.marquez offeres the most money oustide of mayweather to paqiou and as they say, if it dont make dollars it dont make sense…marquez ows him nothing.

I pretty much agree with the author. Although I wud argue that a final fight with JMM cud be worthwhile.
