Maybe Pac just now but Wlad is still holding all the hw belts bar his brothers and on a 13-0 championship run, so time yet for Wlad.

One has p4p skills, one has a p4p advantage

You have to understand with the exception of his early losses, all Pacs stateside losses are all people that are also higher ranking than Wlad or anyone he has faced, (Marquez, morales) as are his best wins (Barrera, Morales, Oscar)

Pac in his prime was a warrior with blindig hand speed, power, the heart and ability to be dangerous going toe to toe with anyone and ended up fighting well out of his weight class.

Wlad kind of, enjoys the opposite of all the disadvantages that made Pacs career so impressive, and manages to do so looking a lot less impressive. And then there is the actual resume.

Achievements

Wlad
13 straight title defences
Huge KO ratio
Dominance (weak opposition however)
Notable wins: Haye, Chambers, Byrd (x2) Peter, Chagaev


Pacquiao
7 division title holder
Lineal champ in 4 divisions
Fighter of the decade (HBO, WBO, Boxing Writers)
Former p4p #1
Notable wins: Barrera(x2) Oscar, Morales (x2), Marquez (2 official), Cotto, Margarito, Hatton



The answer is very easily Pacquiao.

Even if Wlad beat prime Lewis and Tyson he'd still be nowhere near Pacquiao, unless you think beating Povetkin and Wilder will cement Wlad's top 50 ATg standing

Pacquiao has fought and beaten better opponents than Wlad could ever dream of beating. He's beaten genuinely great fighters, Wlad hasn't ever beaten a top 50 heavyweight.

Pac because of his Barrera, Morales, Marquez wins. the rest of his competition is overrated and pretty equal to Wlads. Bradley is by no means a better fighter than Byrd was and i'd also pick lets say Haye over Cotto in a p4p fight any day..
