When Should a Great Boxer Retire?

Three months ago, boxing fans got some exciting news and some worrisome news on the same day. The exciting news was that Manny Pacquiao, one of the great boxers of the post-Tyson era, was going to fight Errol Spence, Jr., one of the best boxers in the world. It figured to be a competitive match. Spence was arguably at the top of the welterweight division, which has a limit of a hundred and forty-seven pounds, even though he had only fought once since nearly dying in a car crash, last October. Pacquiao, an aging legend, was the underdog, but many experts gave him a good chance to win: in his most recent fight, in 2019, he had defeated another top welterweight, Keith Thurman. A victory for Spence might have elevated him from boxing champion to worldwide celebrity; a victory for Pacquiao would have proved that he was still an élite boxer, even at the age of forty-two, and even after seventy-two fights.
