I'm not defending Pac, you obviously didn't read my post if you think that. I'm simply saying Pacquaio is not as good as Mayweather so what is a cherry pick for Floyd is not necessarily a cherry pick for Pacquiao. That's not rocket science either.

Garcia has been mentioned as an opponent for Pac simply because he is one of the best options from a marketing standpoint, the same reason he has been mentioned as an opponent for Floyd. They want to make the fights that will make the most money.
Pacquiao was never as good as Mayweather, even when Pac was P4P #1. He never gained that from beating Mayweather. Mayweather skill set has always been above Pac. Yet that didn't stop folks from comparing the two, because Pac was riding Floyd jock strap. So what if Pac got KTFO, he was beat and KTFO long before he hitched a ride on the Mayweather express. Pac has been looking good lately right? People are still comparing Pac to Floyd right? So Floyd or Pac fighting Garcia should be considered a cherry pick fight that makes good money right. To say other wise considering, it was all done before would be a contadiction to Pac career since he's been compared to Mayweather.

Which is exactly why what is a cherry pick for Floyd is not necessarily a cherry pick for Pac.
Floyd is P4P #1 and considered by most to be better than Pac so the standards are higher for him whether you like it or not. If Floyd wants to be 'TBE' then his level of opposition should reflect that.

IMO when a bunch of people start trying to tell you that floyd is ducking pac...that hes deathly afraid...that pac will knock him out...and that pac is better.....and pac is fighting within a division or the same division as floyd....and pac claims a title at jr middle.....then yes....imo he should be held to the same standard as floyd.....

his fans say all of this shit and then they wanna be off the hook for certain shit....like saying garcia sucks and is coming off a loss but fighting pac is ok...or maidana is c level but fighting pac is ok

In other words it's ok for Pac to wear the title, but he don't have to live up to it??
B.S. If that's what it is, then a ATG he is not.

What a bunch of fanboys and haters say doesn't matter. The fact of the matter is according to most objective (not fanboys or haters) boxing enthusiasts, Floyd is better than Pacquiao and is the best in the world so he is judged by a higher standard. This fanboy/hater shit is juvenile.

I don't think it would be a "cherry pick" for pacquiao if he went to 140 like roach was talking about. If you can make weight in his division where he is the recognized champion I don't see how it could be called cherry picking. I'd call it going after the champ. Same would go for floyd but I think he'd have to hard of a time going to 140. Don't think he'd care to try either. I mean, floyd ain't chasing danny garcia. Pac might tho. He's much more suited for 140 anyway. Guys will talk shit but he's been fighting over his weight for years.
