Default How does Pacquiao's legacy compare to other Asian greats?

My friend RagingBull is broadening my horizons a little bit...Is Pacquiao building an ATG resume among the great Asian fighters? Fighting Harada,Jung Koo Chang,Pone Kingpetch, Jiro Watanabe, Sung Kil Moon, and Khaosai Galaxy, etc.
Pacquiao is amazingly popular...but what does the board think of his overall standing?

I think Pacquaio is right up there with Harda, Chang, Galxay and Kinpetch. I have not seen much of Moon or Wantabe to comment on them.

Yes-- Pacquiao is a hall of fame fighter.

He likely ranks as high or higher than all the ones you mentioned other than Harada. Villa has to rank in there as well.

He already has more fights than most of them, strangly.

He's third on my all time Asian list. I hold Pancho Villa and Fighting Harada in higher regard at the moment, but a win over Juan Manuel Marquez bumps him up and he could have a case to be the best.

Weird how Pac's so variable, already being blown out more than once in his career.
