Manny Pacquiao may be saying all the right things, but his doctors are still very concerned over his health. While Pacquiao took the time to assure the media that he is "100% healthy," Dr. Rustico Jimenez, the president of Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines, believes Pac-Man has shown some early signs of Parkinson's disease.
"Even though his reflexes are quick, I noticed the movement - it's just another view, my personal view - but it seems like there are early signs. There are some movements that you will notice with his hands. It's in the hands, and not the head, where you can easily see this. It twitches a little bit. Although I haven't seen it up close, I think I am seeing that there are some signs."
After the fight, Pacquiao took some extensive brain tests and based on those reports, Dr. Raquel Fortun, a forensics expert from the Philippines, believes that something is not right as well.
"When the brain gets shook like that, it's very dangerous. Since it's not truly fixed to you skull, when your brain gets shaken, there are connections that get cut off, and you get small hemorrhages."
... The forensic expert expressed alarm over reports that Pacquiao allegedly had a slight seizure after falling unconscious from Marquez's hammer blow to the head.
Pacquiao has responded to the reports saying the doctors' claims "show a total lack of ethics and it was irresponsible. This was just personal opinion and there were no medical tests.ā€¯ Pac-Man still plans on fighting in April and facing Juan Manuel Marquez for a fifth time in September.
