GREAT fighters often turn in one final vintage performance that reminds everyone just how special they are.

Muhammad Ali did it against Leon Spinks in 1978, Roberto Duran rolled back the years to stun Iran Barkley in 1989, Bernard Hopkins bewitched Beibut Shumenov as recently as 2014, and Manny Pacquiao – arguably the greatest fighter of the current era – may have had his final glorious moment against Lucas Matthysse, when he halted the Argentinian in seven rounds.
