Default How Much Does Pacquiao Have Left?

Manny's decline has been a combination of lack of hunger (due to great success), fighter's understanding the flaws in his style (styles make fights; Mosley/Marquez showed this); and fighting legitimate young elite/world class opposition...(Bradley...IMO)....he is no longer the man he was...which is natural he's not 26 anymore but the decline to ME is clearly evident...how long DO YOU BELIEVE he can compete at the top level....if he has not already slipped off...

Thoughts...please

This should just be the last year he competes.

He's slowed to a point that guys who previously would've just lost are starting to make it competitive like Bradley.

Straight forward bangers notwithstanding, he's reached a point where every fight might be difficult stylewise as his speed advantage has now waned. IMO.
