Manny has had a fair few stoppages aswell that wouldnt have been stopped in Ike's day it must be noted.

Corners and Refs used to let fights go on to point of death almost.

Ike was averaging 10 fights a year in his prime, mostly in non-title fights were he was encouraged to hold back and go the rounds to give the crowd their moneys worth..Perhaps you could compare that to Manny just going through the motions against Oscar Larios.

Its not all about the numbers mate...but if you are hung up on them try this on for size. Ike has nearly 90% Ko rate in his world title wins...thats when he is fighting at his very best and giving it his all.

No problem for me cause I know guys like you are some mindfreaks.
Whatever, you tend to play word-games. Did you read the actual post yet?

As much as I like Pacquiao, I truly think he's blown-up at anything above 135 pounds........ These weights that he fights at between 140 to 145 pounds is NOT natural..... If people really believe Pacquiao just eats a lot of beef and drinks protein shakes all day while pumping iron, they are full of shit...... Pacquaio is doing something sneaky and fishy in order to maintain his higher weight while looking ripped and solid......... Therefore, Manolo Pacquiao is NOT a true welterweight and would probably get his head handed to him from some of our prior champions who were more suited for 147 pounds....... This "Pacquiao Fever" bullshit is getting outta control......... Peace........

Based on the fact that we don't just sit on Boxrec looking at KO ratios, have actually seen him in action and seen how hard he punches, maybe?
