Let your opinion be heard, please cast your vote!

In lieu from his impressive win against Thurman last July 20, many are still debating whether its time to hang gloves or continue fighting probably against the winner of Spence-Porter fight. But judging to what we saw last Saturday it was obvious that Pacquiao's stamina started to fade in the middle rounds after Thurman hit him heavily in the body and head, its obvious that he was not able to ducked those power punches no more, maybe because he is a bit tired, which is not likely the Pacquiao from 10 years ago. If he continue fighting against the top and young welterweights out there he will only putting his health in greater risk. As a fan I dont want to see Pacquioa get pummeled or brutally knocked out in his last fight. It's better to have a graceful exit in the sports now. He has accomplished a lot in his career there is nothing more to prove.

Retire now. Live a long healthy life is most important. Masaya na kaming mga totoong fans nya, haters like Peddy Atlas, Doggy Fisher and the LDBC will never acknowledge Manny as their GOAT.

If he is only going to fight the likes of Mikey Garcia or Danny, the PACMAN better just retire.

For me, there's nothing to prove in terms Idol Pac legacy and wealth. He've got what he wish in his life. So it is high time for him tohang his fortunate glove, while dadashev or Ali's life eat his !! I'm a big fan of d Pacman who i'll miss when time he is no longer in d ring fighting but he had to....

Although I like Manny to retire as early as 2012, but with the recent conditioning and result last Sunday I want him to have 2 more fights. Beat Spence and Crawford and be the welterweight king. These fights are winnable for Manny I think. The two are not on the same level of cotto and margarito. No patsy boxer please! 8)

Fights with the 2 garcias, khan, or other welters are a waste of time, energy and legacy. Two fights next year be the welterweight king and then retire for good. 8)

A winnable fight but it can be a very tough fight for Pacquiao at this point of his career, the two you mentioned are also hard punchers, I wonder if Pacquiao's chin at age of 41 can still withstand those hard blows anymore? It is a very risky fight, one big shot can end it all!

Challenge Floyd first like this:

'I want a rematch with Floyd. That would be my last fight before I retire. But if Floyd would not accept my challenge, then there is nothing more for me to prove. I am retiring now. Only a fight with Floyd can make me unretire.'

That way, Manny would cast doubt on Floyd that he is scared to fight him. Just as Floyd cast doubt on Manny by implying that Manny uses PED.
