What, is Pacquiao losing steam? Filipinos love Pacquiao because of his explosive knock outs. But since he's becoming a seasoned boxer, his more are more professional and finesse. Very far from the boxing ring brawls he initiates during his younger days. Do you think Pacquiao is fast becoming a boring boxer? Should he retire? And fast?

I agree with kabalyero, Barrera was fighting for the money. I never saw Barrera initiating some offense

Barrera has 2 goals. 1. To get tons of money and 2. Avoid getting KO'ed Which he triumphantly did against Manny. I think Manny felt that he can take Barrera and thus opted not to finish the match early. The longer the match the more money will it bring his sponsors but this is just my opinion.

Kheyanne, I don't think Pacquiao has turned into a boring boxer. He just needs to outsmart Barrera who's also trying to outsmart him. At Manny's age, retirement is a long way to go. Expect his explosiveness to come back in his upcoming fights.

No, He is not. Pacquiao is still young. I think he is only between 26 to 28 years old..He is a very descipline boxer. A sports person. He has a unique style and personality in boxing world.

Hello. I don't think that Pacquiao will retire soon. I hope won't do so yet. I agree with what you said. But I believe if he can follow his own style alone, the games would be more exciting as Pacquiao likes to finish games quickly by knockouts. Maybe he is just following the style that's being coached to him that's why he had to be a little finesse in his recent fights.
