Robert Garcia, the trainer of Brandon Rios, said Friday that Manny Pacquiao is showing signs of coming to the end of his career and vulnerable in the WBO international welterweight title fight.
Pacquiao is coming off two losses and has not fought since his devastating knockout defeat at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez almost a year ago. Garcia said he's noticed subtle signs of decline in the Filipino boxer, once considered the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
''Everybody's end comes someday and it could be this fight,'' Garcia said. ''He does have a lot to lose in this fight, and that's pressure not only for him but his trainer and everybody in his camp.''
''There are things I've seen in his last two fights that maybe a lot of people who haven't fought don't see. I went through those things and I already see them ... A lot of fighters go through the same things, they don't even tell their wives, but I can see it in him.''
