03:34 PM ET 12.14 | Tomorrow will mark one week since Manny Pacquiao was brutally knocked out cold for the first time since bursting onto the boxing scene and becoming the next great boxer of this generation. But while analysts are saying the knockout last Saturday at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez wasn't a career-ending blow for Pacquiao, his wife is singing a very different tune. Jinkee Pacquiao came forward this week and said that she feels her husband's boxing career is over and he has nothing more to prove to the world or the fighting community. She also said that when she watched her husband get dropped to the canvas, it was the first time in his boxing career that she was frightened for her husband.

Manny ain't going out like that.. he'll fight again.. he doesn't want his last fight to be a loss.. but the Marquez punch should be a wake-up call

Every fighter in his life time will take a "perfect" punch like Manny took!!!! Too bad that he never fought Mayweather!!!! IMO, Manny should take his wife's advice and hang up the gloves, he doesn't need/have to prove anything else!!!
