Does Manny Pacquiao still have it? His fight against Brandon Rios in Macau on Saturday night (Sunday morning local time) marks the first time he'll climb in the ring since being knocked out cold by Juan Manuel Marquez. It's not impossible to rebound from a KO loss, and PacMan still has speed and experience on his side. Rios is known as a straight-ahead brawler, which could present counterpunch opportunities for Pacquiao. But Rios is also seven years younger.
