i just want to get this off my chest and let my filipino brothers know that there is more to boxing than pacquiao. i know he's fallen...but u still have donaire. i never really had faith in mercito gesta...sorry. but seriously, there are plenty of other great boxers that aren't filipino. become a fight fan...not a fighter fan. there is so much to love about boxing. educate yourselves on the sport! don't abandon it...or the boards for that matter. feel free to ask questions and i will be more than happy to help you find answers. boxing is beautiful. stick around!!!

+1, But I personally think they'll leave when he retires. Post this too when Floyd suffers his first L (if he loses).

floyd fans are typically band wagoners that have been around for a while. a lot of those guys were roy fans previously. broner is in the que for them...they won't be leaving anytime soon. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

So true, I am one of these guys... Although I am a previous fan of Ali, SRR, SRL, Hagler, Herns, Duran, Tyson, Holyfield, etc... However I do love the sweet science and always will.

Guilty as charged as well. Although I was never a Leonard fan.

Before Floyd, I was a big Roy Jones fan. I was also a fan of Whitaker and Toney. I also liked Manny back in the No Fear fire trunks days lol







And for a period of time I was a big Jeff Lacy fan (hangs head in shame)

I'll enjoy boxing post Floyd but I wont lie like it won't be the same. More than his skill, I admire Floyd's intellect in the ring. Hopefully Broner will bring that but I just dont see fighters think like Floyd does much anymore. I'm a big Andre Ward fan and have been for a while. Him and Floyd are a dying breed. I kinda like the kid Bryant Jennings, even though I think he's more suited as a cruiserweight.


To the original topic. I'll take it a step further. I don't think Manny is done by any means. Let's face it. Their aren't too many fighters with the ring IQ of a Marquez, that will take advantage of Manny's gaping holes in his fight game. I think Manny has 2 solid years of fights in him and I think it's a shame that so many people, especially Filipinos, turned their back on him after all he's done for their culture both in the Phillipines and in the US. Guys get knocked out. It happens.
