Contrary to what some are saying, his brutal loss absolutely does not affect his legacy, on the contrary, it's all part of it. A fighter has to own his entire career and not just the parts where he looked good. But when Manny looked good he gained a loyal following, that's good for Manny, and that's good for boxing. He received the welcome a champion should receive when he's respected regardless of whether he has a belt or not, or if he lost.
