Re: Recovering from big knockout defeats
It's very possible, but it does depend on the psyche of the fighter in question. This isn't the first time Pac has been knocked out, so it's quite possible he will bounce back. Whether he will be the exact same force remains to be seen though.
While we can't be sure of what goes on behind closed doors, Pacquiao impressed me with his attitude after the fight. He accepted the loss with good graces, and didn't make excuses. To me, that's half the battle won right there.
