Manny Pacquiao Suffers Career-Threatening Injury
Manny Pacquiao seemed set for a rematch against Floyd Mayweather after easily dispatching Adrien Broner on Saturday, but those plans might have to be put on hold, potentially for good.
Some in the 40-year-old Pacquiao’s camp fear that the boxer might have suffered a detached retina after he complained of pain and vision loss in his left eye on Sunday morning, according to the New York Daily News’ Wallace Matthews. Pacquiao is reportedly scheduled to fly home to the Philippines to see an eye specialist.
Matthews also reported a different source in Pacquiao’s camp claimed the injury was a minor corneal scratch from the tape on Broner’s gloves.
If Pacquiao is indeed diagnosed with a detached retina, it would likely derail not just a potential future matchup against Mayweather, but Pacquiao’s entire boxing career.
