Pacquiao turns 33 on Saturday; He may not have much time left in boxing

 manny pacquiao By Chris Williams: Manny Pacquiao turns 33 on Saturday, and that may seem young to some people, it’s not young for a small fighter. They tend to wear down a lot quicker than the bigger guys at the higher weights.

Pacquiao has become a plodder and is so hittable now. Read the rest of this entry »
