    I get the impression that Manny will go out Ali style; taking unholy beatings until it’s so obvious that no commissions will clear him to fight. I just can’t picture him bowing out gracefully. I hope I’m wrong.
    A couple of alternative endings could be he winds up like Holyfield, where the other champs just freeze him out out of respect for him. Or Manny just keeps fighting very low level guys who can’t beat him but are honored to be in the ring with a living legend.

    Why? He might get nice paychecks, he is very popular.
    Maybe fight vs Lopez with 147 lbs weight in limit?
    Vs Loma @ 135 if he can make weight.
    There also are Crawford and Vergil Ortiz Jr.
    Paychecks might be very good.

    He's not been the same for a few years now ..the Thurman fight was his last hurrah...he should be proud that he was so talented and dedicated that he could still mix it at elite level even this far removed from his prime.

    We will miss him when he's gone .and it's been an absolute pleasure to watch his career..... absolute legend of the sport n the last page closed on the featherweight 4 kings


    Hang em up Manny

    Pac can remain active, but he's gotta move down in weight. He's just gotta not give up insane size advantages anymore like he's done for the past decade.

    You rank JMM higher than Pac? :lol: Continually proving yourself to be nothing more than a fanboy poser. Go ask your "uncle"....
