Yeah probably is to make Manny look good but then I wouldn't call it cashing out, maybe my definition is wrong but cashing out to me is when you throw a fighter in when you know he will lose but you're taking the money and running.
Manny will always look amazing against fighters like Rios. I actually think it's a strange fight to make because I've heard Arum talk many times about Rios being his next big fighter so why he would throw him to Pacquiao I have no idea, could potentially ruin the kid. Unless he thinks Rios has stalled in his progression and is taking the money while his stock is still at a reasonable level, in that case I would say he's cashing out on Rios.
