After a knockout that had Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao on the canvas, many speculated that he would hang up his gloves once and for all. On the other hand, from recent interviews, Manny Pacquiao still believes he has a fight or two still in him.  

He has dedicated his life to the sport and leaving that one aspect of his life troubles him.  He rose to prominence all thanks to the sport of boxing.

Ricky Hatton has said in a recent interview that Manny Pacquiao should retire.  Hatton said,

The only advice I could give Manny Pacquiao is that his legacy is already secured.  The thing is with us fighters is that there is always one more fight.  What’s he going to achieve by having one more fight?  Probably nothing.  He’s an eight-weight world champion.  There’s nothing more to be said.

Ricky Hatton was knocked out by Manny Pacquiao himself back in 2009.  That knockout took Hatton down a dangerous path of drugs and suicide.  His life started to spiral out of control.  As a fellow boxer, Hatton does not want that happening to Pacquiao.  He believes the Filipino boxer has cemented himself into one of the best boxer’s we have seen lately.  Taking one more fight could further complicate his life.

Leaving something you love that you have put so much time into is difficult for anybody.  Pacquiao has millions of dollars to support his family and even help the country of the Philippines.  Proving a point is no longer necessary.  He has done what he has possibly could in the sport of boxing.

A fight against Floyd Mayweather, Jr. to further cement his legacy?  Not needed.  Pacquiao has already let the world know what he is capable of as a boxer and as a person.

The ‘F*ck Her Right In The P*ssy’ Trend Has Hit The World Cup (Video)

I used quotes liberally in the first sentence because the video wasn’t real. The video’s creator released more videos […]
