him being a pro for 17 years dont tell the full story. What age did he become pro?

how is moving up in weight going to effect your body for the worst, draining effects does, but moving up?

Canelo has had how many pro fights? his 21, i dont see your fuking point

60 fights but he turned pro when he was what, 12? lol he was young anyway.

34 is a nice age for a boxer, if Manny was still fighting drained damaged goods [cotto & hatton] you'd see more KO's.

i just dont think he was past it during the Bradley fight, i just see it as an excuse.
So after one defeat you are damaged Goods?? tell that to the many HOF's who have had defeats. What a retarded way of thinking. And a 2lb weight difference is not weight drained. Cotto never used it as an excuse EVER. Its your excuse and fans like you ( AKA Floydidiots )
Pac looked better in the Bradley fight than he had since the Cotto fight. All the stats prove that. As for the only working 30 seconds of a round that is total BS, an exageration of huge proportions made by haters.

I just said recently in the recent "morales-pac blood test" thread but again his speed has slowed. He's not as fast as he used to be but maybe that also can be attributed to him fighting more stationary fighters. Not taking away from his wins as beating Cotto, Morales, and Barrera are nothing to scoff at.

Yes Marquez gave him hell before this period of his lack of motivation since post-Cotto but even then he was more ruthless. Yes he still wanted to hurt him but something clearly at right with him atm which is mental and physical. He's had a long career, been fighting since being a scrawny kid, and reached multiple peak moments most never will so I don't blame him. Wish him the best and hopefully he has another great performance or two left in him.

a few boxers become damaged goods after getting punched numerous times flush and then getting KO'd for the first time.

some people come back stronger after defeat, hatton though was getting rocked by who, Lazcano was it? his best win after Pacquaio was Malignaggi and he just didnt have the tools to score a ko at 140.

hatton was damaged goods, he thought he could still make 140, how he was wrong.

That's cuz he isn't always fighting tailormade opponents. He is fighting real competition.

You can say the same about Floyd dummy. Pactards are a pathetic bunch these days. Just like Philla is today.

dumb op is dumb.

Watch pac-jmm 1 & 2, JMM was a much tougher opponent and made Pac miss all night too, yet you didnt see Pac stop throwing punches.

Pac had no bounce on his feet, fought 1min of 3 rounds (see shot Morales fight 1 min of 3 rounds) and generally just lost that killer instinct.

Then again, how can you expect people who only followed his career post DLH and never stepped into the ring to notice these things.

i agree. beating Bradley convincingly is an impressive feat. Bradley was in most p4p lists, and manny made him look average.

Manny is an ATG no doubt, but he'll only look sensational aginst more come foreward boxers.
