Guys,

We all know that MP is planning to retire maybe in 1 or two years time.

As one of the greatest boxer in history, how do you want our Idol to end his boxing career and how do you want his last fight to happen?

A fight with Corey Spinks for the IBF light middleweight belt at catchweight 150 lbs. in 2010.

Win or lose, it shows Pac's aim for the unprecedented. And that is Pac's legacy which no boxer can equal.

by winning his last fight. We wouldn't like him to exit a la De la Hoya, would we?

Fight, Mosley, JMM, Cotto, PBF,

Have a going away fight in the Philippines, against who, idk,

Then retire to politics, I guess, seeing Pacman in politics wouldn't hurt so much as Pacquiao's skills deteriorating and leading him to getting KO'ed or badly beaten.

De La Hoya vs Hopkins was made at a catchweight of 158,
IBF/WBC/WBO/WBA Middleweight Title (160) were on the line.
Oskee came in at 155, BHop at 156 during the weigh-in

I would like to see him retire with 7 titles. I don't care who he fights for the 7th title for as long as he wins it, and being the only boxer having 7 title belts in different weight divisions.

I don't think Manny will go that high, we walks around at 150lbs, idk, what do you guys think, but I wouldn't want to see him getting beaten very badly buy a much bigger guy, Welter is limit for me, imo.

I think yes, if the weight is within the light middleweight range and both parties agree to a title fight.
