Roach is finally right about something, a quick return for Manny is a bad idea. Pacquiao didn't merely lose, he was utterly vanquished, a state of mind that is usually a sign that a career is at an end. Boxing is 90% mental and %10 physical. These fighters today train really hard but if you are mentally weak or shaky, then you're as vulnerable as they come because a fighter has to believe they're going to win above anything else, in the end belief must be supreme.

What Manny has experienced is really an emotionally roller coaster of self-doubt and inspiration as his fans are still firmly behind him. A man has limits however, every man does, including Manny Pacquiao. I realize the sting of his defeat is a bitter taste in the mouth of his fans, but is that what really matters right now, that Pacquiao avenges a defeat?

People are acting like Pacquiao's next fight is the one that truly defines him, but in reality he's already been clearly defined and the outpouring of good will illustrates that. I hope Manny does what's good for him and his family period.
