Studies have shown that boxing can be hazardous to one’s health “When a boxer gets a direct blow to the head it is like being hit by a 12-lb padded, wooden mallet travelling at 20 mph!” When Pacquiao attended a post-fight press conference, he reportedly had his head “wrapped in a white bandage after having his ear drained of blood from some of the shots he took from Cotto.” If we all want a good future for Pacquiao, we should also wish him good health. In this context, it is necessary for well-meaning Filipinos to convince him to retire because he should not wait until he gets seriously injured in a sport where he has earned millions of dollars. Pacquiao has definitely fulfilled his childhood dream of providing a good future for his family. Now is the time for him and the other Filipinos to face the reality: Boxing is a dangerous sport, and the Philippine government’s development policies and program offer very little in making the lives of the poor better. –Asian Correspondent.com

Pretty surprising that a Filipino reporter would call for Pacman to retire before the fight that will supposedly save boxing. Who is he? Manny’s mother..Let’s see the fight we’ve all been waiting for already..-TO
