In my eyes it wouldn't undo everything that Juan was able to accomplish by getting that KO....but for Juan I think he's struggling with knowing he accomplished EXACTLY what he wanted against PAC...albeit taking a brutal beating on his way to this accomplishment...but the money is a very tempting carrot being dangled in front of him. Losing to PAC won't affect JMM's overall legacy or anything he was able to accomplish outside of knocking Manny out....but it would be a thorn in his side if he takes the fight and ends up losing or getting KO'd himself. Walking away with the KO is very tempting as well.
