No Because every fighter that faced Pacquiao is shot afterwards.

I would say around the second pac fight he was shot. He wasnt the same fighter as in the first fight.

I'd say his last big prime date was after the 1st pac fight...He was at the end of his prime in that fight! He didn't look bad against David Diaz in 2007 either though he lost hands down!

IMO erik was brilliant and didnt show much of a decline against pac 1 & took major punishment throughout the fight. em won the battle but lost the war.

it wasnt till the raheem fight till i noticed a different el terrible.

1. I thought Morales beat Diaz & even if he didnt, he never lost hands down, thats a crazy comment.

2. I dont imagine its possible to look good AND lose to a shit fighter like Diaz never mind lose hands down.

Why are you trying to blame everybody but Pacquiao for fighting past their prime fighters exclusively?

I know that he was not a big puncher at 130, He just decisioned Chavez and Hernandez for the titles

You just owned yourself right there, because haters like you always diminish Pac's wins anyway right?
As far as the FACTS goes, Pac never picked his opponents. And you blind haters just can't accept defeat so you call all his opponents shots afterwards.

The 1st Pacquiao fight.

It was blatantly clear Morales took Barrera lightly in the third fight thinking MAB wouldnt be the same after getting destroyed by Pacman. It cost him big by giving up a lot of the early rounds but was able to put a decent rally to win the second half of the fight but it wasnt enough.

Morales gave everything he had left against Pacquiao. You could see the determination he had in his eyes that night and the lack of in Pacman's. Pacquiao was all smiles and greeting the crowd during his first PPV ring entrance while Morales was strictly focusing on the ring and getting in there as fast as he can, very similiar to Darchinyan/Mijares.
