    Signs for a joke fight in RIZIN

    The only difference is, i thought Manny was somewhat relevant still in boxing......

    I think it might be a business investment or even sending some of his guys. He has an exclusive PBC deal and a fight lined up vs Thurman

    Not sure why people have such issue with these guys participating in non boxing events.

    Furthermore, Manny should probably stick to these.

    Which didn’t add much to his legend. If he fights and beat Thurman I will reconsider, but as far as I’m concerned at 40 he’s an accident waiting to happen when he goes a bridge too far. I’m a big Manny fan, BTW.

    And didn't look all that great doing it. I don't want to watch a Manny Pacquiao who grinds out decisions against C level fighters at best, after watching him as one of the greatest of all time for 10 years strong. If he's going to fight though, I'd rather these cash out joke fights. Not that I'd prefer watching it, but rather for his health.
