when Floyd is cautious, it's skills; but when Manny uses caution, he is declining. you guys are so stupid.

do you seriously think Pac can't KO Rios? Manny could have pummeled rios, even beat him to a pulp the whole night but he chose not to.

Manny is a man not only thinking about his future but thinking about his opponents' future as well. Pac obviously toned down the destruction he was serving Rios. Rios is still a young kid with a long career ahead of him.

or would you have Pac go down a familiar path and end Rios' career like he ended Margarito's by smashing his left orbital (eye).

thought it was an impressive showing by pac, though he did seem affected by some of rios' punches and he admitted after the fight that he got hurt. I think he needs another win vs a high level opponent in order to regain his footing as one of the top p4pers

Pac is back April 12, he doesn't have a lot of options over at Top Rank.

Bradley II
Marquez V
Provodnikov

I think he goes for Bradley rematch, as I'd like to see Rios vs. Provodnikov.

Manny looked good. Great speed, great footwork, very relaxed overall. Total shutout.

I don't know, Rios was the perfect fighter to make Manny look good, a come forward slow pressure fighter.

That was the point. Not only was it supposed to be a tuneup/retool fight for Pac after not being in the ring/camp for a year following a brutal KO loss (which is why I suspect he didn't go for the KO when he could've, wanted the rounds), it was also a showcase for Boxing's foray into the Asian market. They wanted an action fight, ended up being a punching bag exhibition though.

Top Rank's stable is ass at WW right now, wonder who Pac will face next.

I know some of these guys have fights scheduled, but I would like to see Broner vs. Garcia and Pac vs. Alexander, both @ 140. And Bradley vs. Khan @ 147.
