Pacquiao wants April return

713 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?

Get back on that horse, he should fight again in April and then another JMM fight in September as he's planning.

I'd like to see a decent opponent in April, it will give us an indication of how he's looking after suffering the KO, Rios and Bradley would both be good, as stated by you other dudes.

I actually think that getting sparked may have had some benefits, he seemed to be getting disheartened with boxing and losing interest, it may have been the catalyst he needed to reignite his passion for the sport. I would be far more concerned for Manny had he taken a sustained beating or quit on his stool.
