Manny Pacquiao calls it quits!

Boxing Enlightenment

The fact that we fight fans are deprived.  Sorely deprived.  Like being the only guy in your group of friends without a girlfriend.

Why must they only fight 2 – 3 times a year?

The best boxers in the world do not fight often enough.  They do not entertain the excitable observers of the modern-day gladiator warriors.  Had Ancient Roman rulers still command the authoritative structures of today’s society, they would mandate monthly bouts, demandind that the best of the best showcase their superhuman talents on a frequent basis.

(Prime) Manny Pacquiao having just 2 fights in 2009?  And likely retirement in early 2010?  What deprivation!

(Prime) Mike Tyson locked up behind bars for years?  Unable to pit bull his way through Evander Holyfield, George Foreman, and the rest while wearing an orange suit?

(Prime) Muhammad Ali expelled from boxing for close to 3 years due to his views on Vietnam? 

(Prime) Floyd Mayweather, Jr. temporarily retired for less than 2 years, and not fighting the welterweight cream of the crop?

The old adage on physical prowess

. . . states that cat-like reflexes recede over time.  (Physical) Youth happens just once – when it is gone, it is a permanent escape.  Years from now, Manny Pacquiao will possess gray hair, perhaps donning a small belly – an immortal legend, yes.  But young and convincingly dominant then?  Never.
