Not a smart thinker

Edwin

Manny Pacquiao may be a great boxer but not a very good thinker. To continue boxing when he has already attained the unattained is a fool-hardy practice to placate his swelling ego. He has billions in pesos, the adulation of a worldwide audience and has been rated as being the greatest boxer boxer to have lived, even above Ali. The only thing he can gain from continued boxing is a scrambled brain.

Like Ali, if Manny continues boxing, all that he will accomplish is acquiring Parkinson’s disease or worse. All Pacquiao has to do is look at his trainer, Freddie Roach. The roar and adulation of the crowd may be enticing but taking one punch too many in the head can end everything.

On another Manny subject. I don’t think Pacquiao should be endorsing any politician not from his country. His endorsement of a politician in the Nevada senatorial race was out of place. I’m not sure if Pacquiao would appreciate a well-known personality from another country endorsing his next congressional opponent.

I hope that he was smart enough not to contribute to Harry Reid’s campaign. That would be a violation of U.S. laws, even if his minor daughter is a U.S. citizen.
