haha Pacquiao is a fuking shit bum compared to prime Floyd. his legacy is great because of his weight-jumping ability. i don't think he was a particularly great standout in any division,

emmanuel has been conveniently matched under favorable circumstances in recent years. It's silly how Floyd fought a better Cotto(e) than emmanuel, even though Cotto(e) was younger and closer to his prime when emmanuel fought him.

I could go on about the differences in how all their other mutual opponents looked before coming into the fight with one of the two, but we all already know the story.

Pac has the bigger legs
Floyd has the longer arms.
Floyd is an inch taller

There really isn't much between them.
Dude, Floyd is bigger. He's a 147 and Pac is a 140 fighter.

So why could Pac only make 143 for the Marquez fight? Why can't he make 140 for the Bradley fight?

He's not a junior welter.

Because he can. He's the money guy dictating the terms. He can easily make 140. He just doesn't feel like draining anything.

So he can easily make 140, but doesn't want to drain?

That makes no sense. There is nothing easy about draining.

Floyd's opposition of late has definitely been more impressive of late and he has gained on Pac. That is not debateable.

You seriously don't get it? He simply doesn't want to go through the hassle of losing the couple of lbs to make 140. So he dictates the terms at tbe weight he feels strongest at. But he is without a doubt a natural 140 fighter. Floyd can't make 140. If he did, he would be adversely affected.

Floyd can make 140 just as easily as Pac can.

No way. Floyd stays near his fighting weight year round. He would struggle to make 140. He's a full fledged ww. Why do you think he chose to come in at 146 against Jm when the contract was for 144?

Pacquiao, but he's really not that far ahead anymore. A lot of people still completely forget or pass over the wins over Sasakul and Ledwaba. Bradley should be a nice win for him, too.
