    I cant see him beating spence. I think manny is still competitive just now but thats it.

    He is supernatural however and the levels he is still at whilst being over 40 is mindblowing. We will miss him when he is gone i jst hope he dont get hurt

    Fair play to Manny Pacqiuao

    On one hand you have him taking Keith Thurman's 0 in his last fight and now even at his age, he's fighting Errol Spence who's in his prime and one of the top pound for pound fighters on the planet.

    Then on the other hand you have Floyd Fame Wh*re Mayweather embarrassing the sport with circus shows.

    Pac is a true fighting man.

    If he loses, he'll have one more fight in the PI against some circus sideshow just for fun. If he wins, I think he may either go after one other big fish to retire.

    Agreed. At the same time, Spence will be dealing with **** he ain't never seen before...

    Speed
    Snapping power
    Weird angles
    Crazy footwork
    Experience at the absolute highest level

    I don't see how Pac can beat Spence.

    This, I agree with, he'll get something he's never seen. You really can't prepare for Pac. Even old Pac is still a whirlwind

    Not a good look for Floyd. I have appreciated Floyd for some time now. Thought he was the best fighter of his generation, top 20 P4P ATG. I still think his accomplishments keep him at that level, but Manny is showing that, over time, cream rises to the top. If Manny manages to beat Spence in a clear cut manner, Floyd needs to take a back seat. Of course, some people believe FM is in the back seat already. Not gonna argue, because Manny has the merit to garner such praise.

    Manny, at 42, is operating on borrowed time.

    Hopefully he doesn't 'get old' vs Spence and has enough time left to make it a memorable fight.

    He doesnt, imo.

    He will get beat up by Spence and that will be the nail in his time at the top of the sport.

    I dont expect him to get another high profile win after this.
