Good question. I would say Pac's over Cotto/Margarito.

Manny's win over Cotto was more dominant than Mayweather, and came earlier. There was no weight issue, despite what some have claimed in hindsight. Margarito was a middleweight on the night, probably more, and a decent one at that, so Manny's win is pretty extraordinary, from that respect.

Floyd's win over Cotto was less dominant. Mosley was overrated and a decade past his best at this stage and had been well beat on a number of occasions previously. He also hurt Floyd pretty badly early on.

I don't really, there's not much different. Four very good wins by any measurement.

3. Peterson was caught by VADA, not commission tests, he actually admitted to taking testosterone before the first Khan fight, which had commission testing.
4. Mayweather has never been forced to fight Pacquiao, I don't recall Pac being his mandatory at any point.
5. It is very very childish that people actually insult each other over their May/Pac preference.
135 to 142. He weight 142 vs dela hoya

Floyd, and fairly comfortably for me.

Margarito got smashed to bits by the very Mosley that Floyd defeated and was weight drained.

Floyd fought Cotto at a healthy weight with a better trainer.

pac-cotto and pac-margo

both opponents are way much younger and closer to their primes than the version that floyd fought plus pac's wins are way more dominant.

Even.

Margo got trashed by Mosley that Floyd beat.

But Pac fought a younger and fresher Cotto. Weight drained issue is just being raised by Pac haters.

The Margarito that Pac fought was a tougher Margarito than the one Mosley and Cotto faced. The Mosley version was distracted - and looked out of it because of the pre-fight fracas. The first Margarito that Cotto faced was no less tough than the second Margarito, but the second Margarito was a bigger puncher, albeit with a serious handicap (one eye).

The Cotto that Pac fought was lookin' like a beast until he got clipped in the 4th.

Margartio was an unranked fighter. Cotto was #8 in the world and #2 at 147.

Cotto was ranked 10 in the world and #1 at 154. Mosley was ranked #1 at 147 and #3 in the world.

Again-Margarito was unranked at any weight and was a cheat.

So you can gain a victory by ignoring what you can't answer? Is that it?

By golly, Thatman a G!!!
I don't feed the troll. Pac**** trolls get 0 response to me as I have learned it's pointless. No matter what you say, they just find a way to bash Floyd and praise Manny.

So what I said before.

How people can defend PAC refusing the test for 3 years, I just don't know
Puga proved wrong again Puga takes a beating everyday on ths forum. You would think he would just stop but he is a pac**** and that is what they do.

Margarito was horrible. Arum painted that fight to the fans like it meant something. As the #1 fighter in the world you should not be taking on unranked opponents.
