Pacquiao wants April return

712 Views 12 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Ilesey
Despite Arum and Roach saying he should rest until September, Pacquiao said:

"There is nothing to be worry about. I am 100 percent healthy and right now I'm enjoying this memorable vacation with my family in this beautiful country of Israel. I will return to the Philippines on January 14 and in early February because I want to get to the gym because I want to have a fight in April and in September I want the fifth fight with Marquez."

A doctor has gone on record to suggest Manny is showing the early signs of Parkinson's, but Mannny responded:

"The statements by the doctors show a total lack of ethics and it was irresponsible. This was just personal opinion and there were no medical tests."

The doctor later said he based his opinion on watching Manny on TV, so no real substance for me.

Is it a good idea for him to return in April? Who does he fight?

April return is fine if he takes on a lesser opponent, which is what he needs imo. Marquez looks set for Septemeber so a nice confident booster is a good idea.
I dunno how much the KO will effect him, everyone makes out like he will be a brain damaged zombie next time out but he was fine almost immediately after the fight and prolonged beatings do more damage than a straight Ko. Worst thing that could happen from the KO is that he gets gun shy.
