2012 certainly has been a year to forget for Manny Pacquiao. Starting with a bogus split decision loss to Timothy Bradley back in June, followed by a knockout at the hands of rival Juan Manuel Marquez just weeks ago. The latest act in this soap opera, Pacquiao's wife has called for his immediate retirement from boxing, citing the fact that her husband has no more to prove in the ring. Pacquiao has also been suspended from boxing for 120 days, and is to avoid all contact related to boxing for the first 90 days. In addition, Pacquiao needs to undergo brain testing to find out just how bad the damage is from the Marquez knockout. Yikes. We wish the eight-division champ a happy and healthy 2013.
