Manny Pacquiao Showing Serious Health Issues: Will Fight Marquez a Fifth Time

Manny Pacquiao knocked-out Knuckle Dragger MagazineManny Pacquiao is the pride of the Philippines. The polarizing figure can do no wrong in the eyes of his faithful fans.

He released a record, has a lengthy list of movie credits and is currently a sitting member of congress in the Philippines. But now, one of the best fighters in the world, is now facing a very serious fight, his health. Recently doctors expressed concerns that Pacquiao was showing early sign of Parkinson’s disease. Dr. Rustico Jimenez, the President of Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines, said that the movements are in his hands, not the head.

“There are some movements that you will notice with his hands. It’s in the hands, and not the head, where you can easily see this. It twitches a little bit. Although I haven’t seen it up close, I think I am seeing that there are some signs.”

Dr. Raquel Forton, forensic expert, has also echoed concerns about Pacquiao’s ability to continue fighting without putting himself in danger.

“When the brain gets shook like that, it’s very dangerous. Since it’s not truly fixed to you skull, when your brain gets shaken, there are connections that get cut off, and you get small hemorrhages.”

There  are reports that Pacquiao suffered a small seizure after his brutal knockout at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez in the duos fourth rematch.

Pac-Man insists that he is fine and will fight Marquez a fifth time in September.

Other fights possibly on the roster: The Timothy Bradley rematch, where Pacquiao won the fight, but judges awarded Bradley the fight. And there’s always the looming possibility of a superfight with Floyd Mayweather.

We all know Mayweather is scared to fight Pacquiao, but he may be a little more apt to take on Pac-Man now that he seems a bit more vulnerable than he did two years ago.

Pacquiao’s had an amazing career and will no doubt go down as one of the most decorated and dominating boxers in history, however it may be time to consider retiring before it’s too late.

Speculation that his motivation to keep fighting is not purely for the love of the sport, as reported financial issues continue to be a black cloud over his career.
