Manny- Looks like shit against boxers.

Mayweather- Has fought every type of fighter there is just about and hasn't looked bad against any in recent years.

Kinda tough to look bad when you've only fought 3 times in a span of like 5 years

Floyd has beaten all of his opponents including and since Oscar by fighting fights which, going into, would have favored his opponents. He beat them at their own game. Oscar- mixing up outside and inside and being tactical, Hatton- mugging, dirty inside fight, Marquez- boxed and timed to death, Mosley- walked down with power punches, Ortiz- out threw the volume puncher and ended a controversial fight controversially.

Clearly. Pacquiao can't outbox a pure boxer, I'd love for him to try.

My old post from this thread is undeniable too.

Floyd has the most versatile defense now, best footwork, quicker than Pacquiao, can fight off the backfoot, an expert in clinches, better concept of what to throw, and is a master on the inside. He has not only the beter defense but the much better offense than Pacquiao it's not even close it's just Pacq is more active. Floyd is more effective and barely gets hit flush so that cancels out the volume punching. If people could put the hater googles to the side and ignore how he appears to be outside the ring then they can actually see how complete Mayweather is and how skillful he is.
To add to that, Mayweather can look great against multiple styles as Nonito pointed out. Pacq loos like a juggernaut against come-forward boxers but guys that can turn him and fight him off the backfoot mae him look horrible. Best offensive fighter now? People must be on drugs of the worse kind to say that. Very good fighter and very tough to outfight but you don't have to outfight him to beat him.

Pacman cannot box for shyt and that why he lost to Eric Morales( Moralas lost his next fight to Raheem) and arguably 3 times to JMM and would have lost to any of the names mentioned above especially Floyd (that's why this fight is truly not made). Bob Arum wants to "milk" Pacman for as long as he can ( they thought JMM was shot). Fights like Hatton, AM, shot Mosley and DLH and Clottey were not boxers or not what they once were. Those are the facts!!!!
Bump for the haters.

pac's first lineal title was against a slick asian dude...

ledwaba is a slick african boxer....

barrera is a boxer puncher???

solis and larios are "boxers"...

and if pac is so inferior to boxers, why does floyd keep ducking (turns down 50/50) this damn midget?....

I dont wanna say "slick" boxers..He is very vulnerable to the counter punching style-

It shows in his fight game too-he consistently leaves his feet etc..

Those saying Floyd turned down 50/50...he can make more money elsewhere..50/50 would be the same purse for Floyd that he always gets PLUS Manny said he'd take less-
