As to who would win, I'd have to favor Pacquiao's style / ability over Chavez - who was a great in-fighter, and swarming-type fighter, but that's not the way to fight Pacquiao.
Chavez has a better chin and his style isnt limited to just looking good agasinst brawlers like Manny. Chavez fought against all styles. Plus CHavez isnt fighting at no catch weight. Manny couldnt drop Bradley with plush left hands landing and was barely able to effect JMM when he scored a more so off balance KD on JMM who has no where near the stamina, chin or effectiveness of Chavez. EPO Manny has a chance but ordinary Manny who's power has clearly diminshed gets killed in the ring. His kidneys would fail against Chavez. BTW welcome back pactard. Its good to still see some of you in existence instead of tucking tail and run away.
