Manny Pacquiao recently received some very alarming news that no boxer, or person in general for that matter, ever wants to hear. According to neurologist Dr. Rustico Jimenez, president of the Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines, he noticed various signs of early Parkinson's Disease developing in the great boxer after examining him.
"Even though his reflexes are quick, I noticed the movement - it's just another view, my personal view - but it seems like there are early signs. There are some movements that you will notice with his hands. It's in the hands, and not the head, where you can easily see this. It twitches a little bit. Although I haven't seen it up close, I think I am seeing that there are some signs."
Manny Pacquiao has been through many battles and rose to the top of the line in the boxing realm after having earned eight titles in eight different weight classes. He's dished out loads of damage on his opponents over the years, but recently suffered a devastating knock out loss at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez in their 4th and most recent match up.
Manny has many career outlets to look forward to whenever he decides he is done with boxing, so if he decides to retire in the near future, he won't be struggling looking for work.
