Manny Pacquiao, a true legend


He has been labeled with such countless marks — a big part of them uncomplimentary
— outside of his game. Inside the ropes, under the most brilliant lights and before
boxing fans inside a field and from one side of the planet to the other, he is known by
just one name: Legend.
What’s more, in the wake of a dazzling misfortune that uncovered such a large amount
what Manny Pacquiao had lost throughout the most recent two years he was inert, the
legend tag rang boisterous again — as noisy as the voices that racket for the Filipino
ring symbol to consider it a vocation.
“Manny has had an incredible career and he doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone,”
Leonard Ellerbe, chief of Premier Boxing Champions that promotes Pacquiao’s fight,
tweeted. “You can’t continue to push that envelope when you’re an older fighter. Hope
he does the right thing, he will always be a legend,” via
Pacquiao lost to Cuban strategist Yordenis Ugas on Saturday in Las Vegas, a
reverberating loss that drew a consistent decision from ringside judges, specialists,
boxing fans and surprisingly down to easy chair experts. The loss uncovered his age —
gone was the hazardous parallel development that would have powdered contenders
like Ugas, who loves remaining before rivals.
Pacquiao himself conceded that Ugas beat him. However, briefly at his storage space
after the battle, he required somewhat persuading.

Another boxer who was a candidate for a bout with the Filipino senator, Ryan Garcia,
tweeted: “Pacquaio (sic) will forever be my favorite fighter and inspiration.”
“You will always be my hero, and someone I’ll always look up to. Thank you so much for
inspiring us.”Pacquiao’s former long-time promoter, Top Rank, wrote on social media:
