http://www.forbes.com/sites/lancemad...uld-he-retire/Manny Pacquiao has some serious thinking to do.
Despite never examining him up close, neurologist Dr. Rustico Jimenez speculated Thursday that the Filipino boxer might be showing the first signs of Parkinson’s disease. Jimenez, president of the Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines, said he was concerned about Pacquiao’s health after he suffered a hard knockout at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez at the end of 2012.
Parkinson’s disease is one that has plagued some boxers late into their respective careers and has continued to affect them well after. Muhammad Ali currently suffers from Parkinson’s disease, does as Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach.
Dr. Jimenez isn’t alone in worrying about the boxer’s health. Dr. Raquel Fortun said she was not convinced by the CT scan results from Pacquiao’s post-fight exam, and “expressed alarm” over reports that Pacquiao could have had a slight seizure after Marquez knocked him out.
