Default How can Pacquiao be "done?"

Quite a few on here are saying that Manny is done or his legs are gone etc

So if a boxer has a few lacklustre fights then that automatically means he is past it? He isn't young but then again he isn't that old either.

We all know the true outcome of his last fight (and yes I know, sd12 was the decision) and JMM should have got the decision in their last fight.

But he still looked good against Bradley (not scintillating, but no fighter can in every fight)

I'm not a "Pactard" by any stretch of the imagination, but he's still a great fighter regardless.

Must some people always be so dismissive? This can be applied to other fighters too. Be thorough in your reasoning if you think this is so.

If anything, his last three fights showed how well he's been matched in recent years. "Box" him and he's nowhere near as good.
