Default Will Floyd and Manny fight on 'forever'?

I was thinking about what 50 Cent said about Mayweather being in a fight-spend pattern and it sounds ominous that he doesn't have the financial sense to invest & save so that when he's finished at the top he doesn't have to fight on ala Roy Jones, Holyfield, Chavez etc.

Do you think Floyd will retire at the right time, I.e. when his skills have seriously diminished and he can simply be outworked by younger, lesser fighters?

Same question for Manny, who I think is probably more financially secure, although that's pure speculation. There was talk about him perhaps losing to Marquez then being cashed-out against Canelo.

I think Manny get out at the right time, Floyd could potentially go on for another 4-5 years. Or something scary like that.

.
I think Floyd have serious personality disorder, a bit smaller than Jones Jr
probably at the same level as David Haye and Ali. Such person does not
know when to retire at the proper time. Floyd can retire and unretire at any
time depending on the challenge ... if someone gives the proper reason
Floyd's ego will not save him from taking a fight with someone 30 years
old younger who challenge him pin ublicl as a fraud and PED addict
in anno domini 2025.

Many to get out at the right time? Da ****? No way. He's got a million million reasons not to retire and will have in five years.

He'll go but come back.

In fact money-may is almost bound to happen. Just that it'll be eight years after we wanted it.

Manny's style is more compatible with the diminished capabilities of decline, and he's already got losses on his record, so the blemishes he'll get won't stain as badly for him as they will for Floyd, a guy whose decline will be more marked because his style is based on timing and reflexes and he values so much his '0'

I think Pacquiao will retire at end of 2014, unless forced to before. At that time he will be Mayweather's age. Mayweather to me has gone into retirement. Mayweather will continue picking older and shot fighters, or much smaller guys coming up. He'll avoid Pacquiao, Canelo and Martinez...he'll fight Guerrero next and will even try and do business with Arum for Bradley...

He won't go near anything dangerous, the guy's fights have become freak shows...Ortiz, Cotto was well staged - the PR regarding Cotto being better and stronger than ever I never bought for a second...

At least Pacquiao is choosing the one guy who really can beat him, the easy choice would be Bradley...

yes. This is what makes their fight on Saturday so intriguing.
