After arriving from Los Angles where he was at ringside for the Miguel Cotto-Zab Judah fight in New York, popular boxing manager and promoter Rex 'Wakee' Salud, advised Pinoy boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao, to look at his career from a long-term perspective in terms of legacy and financial stability. he also advised him that he should carefully weigh the options available to him, as these only come once in a lifetime and to a very select people like him.

two of the world's top promotional outfits--Oscar De la Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions and Bob Arum's Top Rank--are feuding over who is the rightful promoter for the Filipino icon, Pacquiao has to think over whatever decisions he will make.
