After that brutal KO loss, can Manny still come back?

I've seen some fighters came back like Darchi, Montiel, Amir, etc., some others failed.

Can Manny come back? What do you think?

Personally, I think Manny does have it anymore. He should retire while he's still healthy.

No trolls, please. :lol:

honestly, it's 50-50 for me...
must resort back to his old boxing work ethics and add that "SCIENCE" -that's really necessary for his ageing body.
he's in a "cruel" sport... giving more punishment to your opponent is a must! accept it or not... :D

He could still comeback but he must choose his opponent wisely. Can't afford to fight a big puncher, it's risky at this point imo.

He definitely could and he should. Manny was leading and I was actaully impressed with how manny was moving and throwing those combinations. Way better than how he was when he fought bradley and mosley...


When he saw JMM on his way out, he bacame too careless...

duran, klitchko etc was KOed similare to pac but manage to resurrect their careers
its more of pacquiao devoting 100% of his time to boxing and we will see if he has still what it takes to be the p4p king

He can. No cutting corners this time. Listen to his Coach and Conditioning trainer all the time. Manny is as tough as they come. He always comes back strong after a frustrating loss. He did it before after losing to Torrecampo and Morales. Only thing that is preventing him from rediscovering his old fire is the distraction he is surrounding himself now. Pacquiao knows the answer himself and he said it best with these words, "Train hard and the fight is easy".

Of course he can. He did that twice before. All he needs is focus. If he can't focus on his training regimen and the hone his will to win, never mind 8)
