Confusion has reigned in the Manny Pacquiao camp since his stunning knockout by Juan Manuel Marquez last December in Las Vegas. First there was talk that Pacquiao would retire. Then he wouldn’t. Then there would be a rematch with Marquez in April. Then he wouldn’t.
A blog in Opposing Views quoted Pacquiao as saying “Three years? That’s too long.” in response to a reporter’s questions as to whether he would fight another three years.
Alex Globerman wrote for Opposing Views:
“Pacquiao’s team sees the light at the end of the tunnel. The reason why they are throwing out all of these ideas, committing to and then de-committing from various plans, and are testing out ideas by floating them to the public is because they realize how little time they have to do anything. They have one year to milk Pacquiao’s career for all it’s worth – two max, depending on the outcome of the Marquez fight. They don’t have the luxury of taking it slow, letting stuff come to them.”
Pacquaio is 34-years-old. What do you think? Is the end near for Manny Pacquaio?
