    Should Manny Pacquiao retire after that devastating loss with Manuel Marquez?

    At this point questions arise as to Manny Pacquiao's boxing superiority.  Is he still the man to beat after that loss with Manuel Marquez or should he retire given his defeat?

    Manny got around $20 million for the fight and he was ahead on all three scorecards when he got knocked out. It was a terrific fight and there will be great demand for another one, so you have to believe it is likely to happen. The way those two were throwing big punches, what with both having been knocked down previous to the end, you had to think one of them was going to get knocked out.

      @blackandgoldjack. Good point.  In the interview after the bout, Roach gives either retirement or another bout with Marquez as options with due consideration to Manny's performance in the training.  I would love a fifth fight.

    Some of my co-workers who are his biggest fans feel that he should just go home and become a mayor.

      @goody5. You can say that or simply FOCUS on one thing. If he wants to be a good boxer then be one. If he wants to be Congressman then be a good Congressman. You can't have it all.

    No, I do not think Manny Pacquiao should retire. He still has talent and a lot of fight still left in him.

      @actionbronson. Yah, strike while the iron is hot, right?  I just hope that Manny really gets to focus on one thing that he really loves and retire in the same way.

    According to a press report he himself had published Pacquiao "vows to rise again" so he's definitely not retiring anytime soon. Many great fighters have lost a devasting fight then risen to new championships. MANNY will be back as Champ IMO.

      That's the spirit Pierre! He just got back to the Philippines,donated 10 million pesos of his winnings and sworn to train for the next fight whoever he's going to fight with.
