Default Re: Now who's the leader of their generation: Pacquiao or Mayweather?

That’s incredible and unheard of in modern boxing. Fighters nowadays will rarely step in with their bogeyman twice, never mind four times. And Pacquiao does deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as Roy Jones. Why wouldn't he? I love Roy Jones but his resume and legacy is not as impressive as Pacquiao's or Mayweather's.
