Arum, who has been in the business way back during the Muhammad Ali era, believed Pacquiao might have lost his menacing one-punch knockout power but not his skills to fire shots from different angles. Arum stressed Pacquiao is not a one-punch knockout artist, but a boxer that deteriorated his opponent through landing a barrage of shots. http://au.ibtimes.com/articles/539853/20140221/boxing-news-manny-pacquiao.htm#.UwdV1KLDBH1
Manny Pacquiao might have lost his KO power but it does not mean that the great Filipino fighter will not beat his opponent anymore. He still have the strength, quickness and the technical skills to outsmart any boxer with the same caliber as him or even more. Manny Pacquiao’s fight regardless of who is opponents is will still be very interesting to watch.
