However he has given us classics with Pac that will go down in the hall of fame.

He has tamed a beast that everyone saw as being unbeatable.
From his FW days people said he was going to be great. JMM beat him there.
At his SFW they said he was finally a 2 handed fighter. JMM beat him there.
At WW he blitzed through much bigger men and was consider somewhat of a Armstrong. JMM beat him there.

People have always ignored JMM because of his counter punching style so he is not the star Pac is but when people say who was the best of this decade and they say Pac they have to put an asterik by their response as one man bested him 3 times during Pacs amazing run.

In fact, even though I don't blame Floyd's side exclusively for negotiations constantly falling apart (Arum, etc.), it makes him seem so irrelevant as these two continue. This is a drama that has been developing throughout a decade in classic fights; Floyd's drama with Manny turned up to be just a lot of hot air.
