Trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. believes Juan Manuel Marquez will likely knock Manny Pacquiao out again in a fifth fight. Marquez knocked Pacquiao out cold two weeks ago in Las Vegas, after catching the Filipino star with a single right hand in the sixth round. There is now talk of a fifth fight at the some point in 2013. Mayweather Sr. doesn't expect Pacquiao to ever fully recover from the brutal knockout and advises him to walk away while his health is still good.
"When you get knocked out like that, pretty much everything is over. When you get knock out like that, when you start fighting and stuff, and when you get hit with a good punch, another good shot another good punch, you say oh sh**, you realize you escaped that one, and you realize you can’t escape another. I am just saying that, not that it can’t happen again. Pacquiao is not going to be the same fighter he was," Mayweather Sr. told Jenna J of On The Ropes Radio.
"I think Pacquiao should go and be the Hawaiian President or whatever it is, whatever that he wants to be, and go on and do that, because he is done all that he could in boxing. If he fights Marquez again, Marquez is real tough, so I think the same thing could happen again. I think the Pacman needs to shut it down, but than again he do have another option, he got a contract drawn up that say they have another rematch. My opinion is that it’s your money or your brain, and who wants to catch brain injury if you got money."
