    Totally agree, in June it will be 2 years since his last fight. There's just no way his skills, hand speed, and reflexes haven't deteriorated somewhat in that time away from boxing. At 35, I hope he stays retired, he will never again be the fighter he once was. He had an amazing career, he retired pretty healthy and he now has a nice gig with ESPN. He's got a long life ahead of him, I would hate to see him do anything to jeopardize that.

    Mikey Garcia was inactive for 2 years and came back more dominant than ever and now he's fighting a man that will be a middleweight on fight night.

    Plus Ward is well-preserved due to his stinking negative spoiler style.

    Pacquiao was out for a full year after KO6 and came back to pitch shut outs or near shut outs against Rios, Bradley 3, Algieri, Vargas, Broner, and Matthysse. And Pacquiao has a million more miles on the odometer than Ward.

    Couldn't agree more. For some reason a lot of posters seem to dislike him and his personality. Ive met him a few times way back when we were younger at some amateur tournaments. I also know two guys that have known him his whole life. I'm telling you, there isn't a genuinely better, nicer, or more good hearted and morally sound guy in boxing than Andre, Danny Jacobs, and Jean Pascal. And he has a beautiful family. One of the few athletes who retired at just the right time and found genuine peace and content away from their sport. I couldn't be happier or more proud of him. Awesome post brother.

    Mikey was like 22 yeats old whan that happened and trained and sparred daily.

    As for Pac -- ATG fighter no question. I'm putting this out there and I don't care who agrees/disagrees or loves/hates it. The guy is a PED monster and has been for a VERY LONG TIME. I'm not just talking mild PED's either, I mean like full blown stacks/cycles. Same with BHOP. You dont hit late 30's and certainly not 40's and maintain the type of athletic ability that they have displayed without being a juiced to the gills lab rat. Sorry bud, I know it hurts your feelings a little, but sometimes you just gotta be real, especially with yourself.

    I'll look at observable evidence such as the fact that he has slowed considerably with a severely decreased workrate.

    Also, he has been VADA-tested in 5 fights and in each of those contests, has hurt all of them and dropped some of them. Pac had Broner badly hurt and running for survival—something he didn't do with heavier hitters like Maidana, Porter, and Mikey.

    Your hatred don't bother me none, bro.

    VADA DADA GADA whatever. They are corrupt and fake as ****. Denial aint my problem brother, it's yours. Guys been a juice pig for YEARS and never would have become the fighter, force, or had the career he did without his precious cycles. He juiced up more than Barry ****ing Bonds. Dreamland must be nice, keep living there man.

    So with all that Pacroid stuff out of the way and into the open........ Andre Ward did it the right way and all natural his whole career. Andre became an ATG on his own, naturally. Total class act.

    Lol, brother, I don't hate Pac at all. Hes one of the most exciting fighters to watch that ive ever seen. I have mad respect for him as a fighter. The difference between you and me: I'm just real, you're just incapable of that and that's cool. Do you brother. Wasnt it VADA that disregarded or threw out Canelos UA without even testing it? Ya, it was. Wicked credible guy! Factor in Pac generated more money than almost any other fighter from his generation and had all the money in the world to have chemists tailor make anabolics for him that are undetectable. Kid, you look foolish, the guy took so mich juice his balls probably atrophied to the point that they literally naturally castrated themselves and comitted suicide in his sack. Grow up and come to terms with it and be real for once.

    LOL! The hate runs deep, kid. Keep lying to yourself. All you have is what you THINK he has done. Literally, that is all you have—your thoughts and opinion. VADA has REPEATEDLY caught fighters and yes, even huge money generators like Canelo. Canelo is bigger than Pac and generates way more money at this point. So there goes your argument—completely destroyed.

    Again, I look at OBSERVABLE evidence:
    • Pac has declined significantly in speed and workrate
    • Pac has hurt and/or dropped every single opponent with 5 VADA-tested fights
    • VADA has caught a whole bunch of names in boxing and is the closest thing to a guarantee for a clean athlete (your stupid hateful opinion is just that—worthless and unreliable)
    Andre Ward is an ATG POS in the boxing game, but you think he did it the honest way? To wit:
    • Had tons of bacne heading into the Kovalev rematch; ended up hurting Kovalev badly when he's never been known for power
    • Stalled for as long as possible to sign the fight (could argue that he's controlling when testing starts)
    • Tried to hire John David Jackson away from Team Kovalev during training camp—such a desperate, shady, disgusting lack of sportsmanship here for an edge suggests to me that Ward's willingness to cheat goes FAR, FAR BEYOND using PEDS
    Get real, son. Ward's one of the biggest POS in boxing history. You probably think Floyd's clean and that his illegal IV fluids were in fact used to treat severe dehydration.

    You hate Pac, dude. I get it. He has lots of haters. Just own it and don't be two-faced about it.

    :lol:

    Imo, Ward should come back to really cement his legacy because for as much praise as he gets, his resume is not that impressive to the point where you can say he's overrated.

    Brother, cool down with the emotions I didn't mean to send you into a tailspin. You tthink back acne is a sign of steroid use? Look at Pac's facial structure change. How about that one? That's a far greater inxicator of steroid use. And his speed has not declined significantly. You dont have to continuously cycle anabolics to maintain gains. Tell me, was Pac consistently tested by a legit commission as a furiously climbed the divisional ladder? If you wanna say all I have is my opinion thats cool, because hes I know to my core he juiced his balls literally off during his rise. Post cycle therapy when he peaked, and then muscle memory alone he keeps those gains.

    Like I said, I like Pac, I like him more than Floyd as a fighter -- far more -- but im real kid and your justa delusional child. Im literally from Foxboro, I'm as big a pats fan as you can find. Do they cheat and gain every conceivable advantage over other teams as they can? OF COURSE THEY DO. And id rather have a team that does that and keeps winning super bowls than one that doesn't. Does Tom Brady use PED's? OF ****ING COURSE DOES? Has he been caught? No, or not yet?

    Look man, ive been an athlete my whole life. My whole life I played football, basketball, and boxed. I was a scholarship football player at a division 1AA school -- Central Connecticut State and walk on on their basketball team before I got kicked out. Ive been around athletes my whole life and guys that juice. Ive cycled myself. I KNOW the signs of steroid use and can take a look at most people and tell right off the bat if they are cycling currently or if they have in the past. Ive been a fan of Pac his whole career and I'm telling you, during his meteoric rise -- he juiced. Like I said I'm just real and your just some **** sucking clown fanboy living in an alternate fairy tail land. Have fun in the psych ward you will be heading to.
