Dr. Rustico Jimenez a neurologist, thinks that Manny Pacquiao is suffering from an early case of Parkinson's disease, the same ailment now afflicting super great boxing legend Muhammad Ali.
Jimenez noticed frequent twitching of the Pacman's hands, an early sign of the disease. Parkinson's is a disease associated with trauma in the head. Another doctor, Dr. Fortun, says that there is also a possibility that Pacquiao will eventually contract Alzheimer's disease, an affliction which leads to dementia.
Bob Arum, Pacquiao's promoter, has insisted that Pacquiao treats himself in a neurologist clinic in California to determine his true condition.
Whatever is the Pacquiao's true medical condition, one thing is sure---that knockdown begins an inevitable downward spiral which will eventually lead to Pacquiao's retirement.
