Default If Ricky DIDN'T "Pig Out" between fights...

Could he of still been active today? I know the Pac-Man Knockout was the nail in the coffin of his career, but would it of done him any favors if he had "Lived the life" between fights?

I don't think so. He still loses both the fights he lost and his style wasn't made for fighting past 30.

His style of fighting always meant his career wouldnt go on for long after 30.

I think he peaked before the Tyszu fight which is a shame because W.arren protected him for so long. You notice Ricky started to have stamina issues after the Maussa fight
where as previously he was tireless and a machine, his lifestyle can't of helped and changing trainers wasnt a good idea either.

Ricky retired at the right time and had he lived a healthier lifestyle he may have had another year or two left but it wouldnt have changed any of his losses.

Like above, his style ages fighters much much more than others.

He might have had maybe 2-3 more fights but no more.

If he didn't stuff his face and guzzle ale, he would have just got on the gear earlier. He just seems to be that kind of guy...
