I think real fans, and non trolls appreciate both. How can you be a boxing fan and not like the best fighter in the world and enjoy one of the most exciting?

The thing is controversy sells. Trolls and fan boys are louder and have more time in their hands to pollute the boards.

I appreciate Floyd more just because his style is so rare while Manny's is mostly effective against certain types (brawlers). There's a reason why he stays away from boxers and that's because he will look like shit. Floyd is much more proven and has accomplished much more skillwise and business wise. This Manny is a gangster shit is a false statement. He went from breaking orbital bones to not even bruising Bradley's face with plush shots. He's a fake Christian as well as a fake idol to fans who really don't know shit about boxing. I like the sweet science. Not those who hop, skip and trip into counter rights. He's in his position because he's a farce. So it's only right he's been slid. I believe in fairness and to me it's clear Manny is given more credit for lessor accomplishments due to the fact that most people claim "I didn't think he could do it". He's not held to the same standard and it's kinda ****ed over the hierarchy in boxing not to mention he most likely was doping. I would respect him more if he came "clean" (no pun intended) and admitted to the truth. His career has been the most inconsistent possibly out of any fighter in the history of the sport. Floyd may rub people the wrong way but he's never portrayed himself as something he's not unlike Manny who thinks he's a prophet with disiples all the while being a hypocrite in his personal life. And yes, Manny fans never acknowledge facts and quite frankly get destroyed in virtually almost every debate so in conclusion....

**** this Dr Phil on the fence shit. Everyone most likely always has to choose a side and I choose Floyd who's been on top his whole career by merit. Not through a popularity contest like the hype job Manny.

No names or not Floyd fought every style. Manny for the most part is a one trick pony who's mostly fought punching bags or fighters showing clear decline. It can't be argued. The only prime fighter he's fought is Bradley as far as a guy with a name and he took a "L" for it. Why Raheem? Team PAC was even weary on fighting Yuri Foreman. One trick pony to the fullest. Why no Joan Guzman? His resume is scarce of any fighters with movement or some kinda defense instead of opponents who block with their chin.

This. I hate Floyd but both him and Pacquiao are ATG's.

How exactly is he a twat?

He's a changed man after incarceration. He doesn't even flame anymore/do stupid shit like burning money etc.

I like Pacquaio because he knows he's a gangster. He's not some fake ass water muscle dude like pecho and his friend rimmer.

They are down with that gay ****.

Anyway, my point is, he brings it to the table everytime he fights.

I respect that.

And he'll break your orbital bone. He will kill you or die tryin.

But overall, I think Floyd is the best. That doesn't mean Manny is a hype job. Manny is the best FIGHTER. Floyd is the best BOXER. That's the difference.

You fight Manny, you're guarenteed to get your ass whupped. You got to box him.

It's simple...

Why can't people appreciate Floyd and Manny?

I won't say Floyd is the best I've seen but he's damn good

I also won't say Pacquiao's my favorite fighter but I do like him.

One thing for sure in 5 years they'll both be gone so you better enjoy them while they're around. It's funny sometimes boxers have to retire before they get the true appreciation they deserve. Lewis and Holmes were two fighters who fell into this category. Even the fab 4 weren't really called the fab 4 when they were fighting. It took about a decade to for the boxing community to realize just how special they were, not just talent wise but the fact they fought each other.
