Default Re: Manny Pacquiao is a More accurate Power puncher than Floyd Mayweather.

People you have to be careful with statistics.

Numbers don't lie but they can be manipulated if not presented properly. I'll give you an example:

I saw a video of a guy comparing Kobe and LeBron's career stats. One stat showed that Kobe had exactly twice as many games shooting under a certain percentage (I think it was under 40%) as LeBron had.

The thing he failed to mention was that, at the time, Kobe had been playing for exactly twice as many seasons as Lebron had. Leaving out information like that is manipulative.

My point is, you be need to be more careful with statistics. If you don't include the right information (or in this case don't even compute the numbers correctly), then your stats are worthless.
