Manny Pacquiao has gone from the pound for pound king of boxing, to a guy who is now a punchline and meme joke after his devastating knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez. Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs) is scheduled to fight Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23 KOs) on Nov. 23 in Macau, China.  Longtime trainer Freddie Roach is optimistic that a win against the brawling Rios could catapult Pacquiao back to championship status. According to ESPN, roach has warned that if Manny loses again, “he will suggest that to Pacquiao that he should retire.” “If he loses, I will tell him to retire,” Roach told ESPN. “If you lose three in a row it’s your time. “He’s up there in age. I’ve got to keep a close eye on him. It’s part of my job to protect him. I will do the right thing.”
