BoxingScene.com has been advised that the president of the World Boxing Council (WBC), Jose Sulaiman, is very worried about the health of Manny Pacquiao. Last month, the Filipino star was on the receiving end of a vicious one-punch knockout at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez. Pacquiao is likely going to return in September, possibly in a fifth fight with Marquez.
"The knockout he suffered against Juan Manuel Marquez in his last fight in Las Vegas was dramatic. No one could withstand such a powerful punch, right on the button, and that is worrying," said Sulaiman.
"I pray that Pacquiao has no health problems, because he's been the biggest start of the past decade and the world of boxing owes so much to the Filipino. The World Boxing Council awarded him as the 'Best of the Decade.'"
