Default Why do people hate Manny Pacquiao?

Firstly, I'll start this thread by saying I'm a Floyd fan so I'm definitely not a 'Pactard' or whatever.

I don't know a lot about boxing politics so I may have missed stuff but why is Manny Pacquiao hated? He seems like a nice guy.

Because he was extremely good. People that wins a lot got loved, or hated.

1. Using catchweights to drain his opponents

2. Making up all kinds of excuses to dodge and avoid taking blood tests. (He is one of the biggest suspected PED cheats for his suspicious behavior.)

3. Being caught in lies repeatedly (for example: says he is scared of needles, yet has tattooes.)

4. His horrible, delusional fans.

5. Dodging fighters like Shane Mosely when Roach said he was "too dangerous" etc. He is notorious for taking fights with guys who are coming off losses.

Oh, and seeming like a nice guy doesn't mean anything. Watch Ted Bundy interviews, he seems like one of the most charismatic, polite, and kind guys you will ever meet.

Its a combination of annoying fanbase, and mainly, he's not actually hated. You'll find most people who dislike him are a few Mexicans that were dsigruntled about the 1st 3 Marquez fights, And a handful on Flomo's who like to bash Manny to cover the fact floyd wouldn't fight him.
Alot have moved on and started to hate on Alvarez now.

He was allowed to do whatever he wanted but play the good guy and his fights against Cotto, Oscar and Margarito were disgraces, plus he cherry picked

To be honest it is not "PAC" the man or the fighter that gets the hate it is 90% hate towards his delusional fans which create this type of hate you speak of.

*lets not confuse fans w/ Pactards.
(Big difference)

His horrible, delusional fans, although he isn't responsible for that, adds fuel to the fire.
Pretty much that.

Mostly his fanbase, who grossly overrated and overrhyped him as a fighter. People get tired of hearing a bunch of idiots proclaiming the greatness of someone who while a good fighter was no where near as good as many morons were making him out to be.

Because he's the undispusted champ at 145/150 pounds. No one else can top that.

I don't hate him, his fanboys are certainly putrid though.

Manny used to be very overrated. And is now very underrated. The circle is complete.

While he's not weak-willed, his lack of any special protection against mind-control or Arum magic makes it him appear weak to the fans.

1. Pactards. They are the worst people known to man. I couldn't enjoy my connection with Manny, as a fan of his with Pactards around. They've all gone so I can enjoy being a fan of Manny now.

2. The blood test issue 'I get too weak, I'm scared of needles' - Absolutely ridiculous

Every other reason i.e catchweight etc. is Roach's fault.
