i kind of agree with most of this list,but i dont think Nelson wins comfortably,in fact id take Pac over Nelson by a close decision. Although at feather id take Azumah,Nelsons resume was better at 130 but i think 126 was his prime weight. im not so sure if Chocolate beats him either.

What about Chavez? arguably the greatest JL of all time along with Arguello and Mayweather,and i dont remember Olivares ever fighting at JL? This looks more like a 126 list to me. Saldivar too

You need a very good right hand to beat Pacquaio if you don't have 1 you lose, if you have 1 you don't necessarily win, you also need to be pretty quick, and being a good counter puncher with a good defense will help

This list is from 2 years ago, that's why.

I'm interested what the classic experts here think of Ring's predictions?

Pac vs.

1-Kid Chocolate 136-19-6 (51) > Chocolate by close decision
2-Henry Armstrong 151-21-9 (101) > In a war, Armstrong by late ko
3-Willie Pep 230-11-1 (65) > Pep by comfortable decision
4-Sandy Saddler 144-16-2 (103) > Saddler by mid-round stoppage
5-Flash Elorde 86-27-2 (33) > Pacman by comfortable decision
6-Vicente Saldivar 38-3 (27) > Pacman by ko in 10
7-Ruben Oliveras 88-13-3 (78 > Pacman, late, on cuts
8-Bobby Chacon 59-7-1 (47) > Pacman by TKO after 10
9-Salvador Sanchez 44-1-1 (32) > Sanchez on cuts
10-Azuman Nelson 39-5-2 (27 > Nelson comfortable decision or late stoppage
1. Havent seen enough of him

2. Pacquaio's faster straighter shots land first, he has the reach advantage too, Pac widish UD

3. Pep UD probably by countering and using lateral movement - is it same day weigh in rules, if Pac gets 24/36 hour weigh ins he'll come in the ring at 140lbs and be too big/strong for PEp but on the same day Pep most likely takes it, Pac has a punchers chance though

4. Pac UD in a war

5. Havent seen enough of him

6. Pac UD maybe late stoppage, too short and too left hand reliant imo

7. Pacman late KO

8. Pacman late ko

9. Sanchez UD - outboxes Pac in a war

10. Pacman UD

Sorry PP, but I entirely disagree with picks #2 & 4. I think Pac gets knocked out on both occasions.

Both are slower without particularly good right hands or countering skills, which I think you need to beat Pacquaio. Armstrong I give a better chance to because he can bob and weave his way inside, maybe make Pac miss and turn it into an inside fight, Saddler is easier to hit and seriously left hook happy, which is a no no against Pac, I'd put serious money on Pac if they fought

Backing pac up is the quickest way to success at this weight imo.I actually thnk Armstrong matches up really well with him, probably the most one sided of all these fights.Can't see pac putting enough leather on him to stop his advance.Hank was a viscious puncher at this weight too.
