Add in the fact that he's been mismanaged, with his people allegedly demanding way too much for fights and he's all but wasted his prime. Word is that he may fight Loma, but again, Caribe is standing in the way due to their purse demand.
So who do you guys want Pacquiao to face in his last match? Word is that it's between Crawford, Bradley, and Khan. I think it'll be either Khan or Bradley (who btw looked at his best last night being trained by Atlas). I'm fine with either, and I kinda want him to beat the living shit out of Khan to shut up him.
RE: Ward vs Kovalev
Ward's first opponent for the Canelo-Cotto undercard was rejected by the nasc as being too far a mismatch. His next chosen opponent, again on very short notice, wasn't much better. He then pulled out of the fight due to a knee injury. So, he was supposed to have two tune ups at light heavy before facing Kovalev at the end of 2016. If he's on the same course, it looks like they might not fight until 2017. Kovalev in the meantime will fight Pascal again in like January, which I suppose is OK. I'd much rather see him fight Gonzalez, but I imagine they're saving that for later down the road.
Also, we might not see a Canelo/Cotto vs GGG after all, since even Canelo has said he won't fight him at 160. :/
