Fool. If Floyd lost by ko the first time should we consider him as a bum? No right? but Pac it should be right?

A lot of the time people leave out the Sasakui victory is because it happened in the same class Pac was brutally knocked out in.

Better to just bump it into the "4 lineal titles" argument than to treat it as a lone accomplishment to avoid that can of worms.

Mayweather will do the same thing if he fights and beats Canelo next.

It didn't land, you can obviously tell JMM's head is on the outside of the punch.

It landed, but it was more of a weak jab than a right hook

Floyd's frame is more typical of a ww...dude has like 72 inch reach. And he's like what?...5-8 and weighs in the 150-160's. So even if Pac and Floyd are only within 5 lbs of each other, it doesn't tell the whole story, and is entirely inaccurate to say that they're basically the same in size. Obviously not the case when Floyd's "size" gives him certain advantages over Pac.

There's no question Pacquiao was pretty mediocre as a flyweight. Sasakul, coming off an Arbachakov win, was a nice victory for him...even if he was getting thoroughly outboxed before the KO

Pacquiao still rates higher, especially if he dominates Bradley.

When you compare their five common opponents, the only one Mayweather did better against was Marquez. When your compare titles in various divisions, prime opponents, memorable fights, etc - Pac rates higher as an ATG at this point.

Because of fighting Ortiz and a declined Cotto?
You got to be kidding me.

He has to beat Martinez and Pac comfortably to come any close to Pac's wars against the Mexican greats.

I swear people here don't understand just how tough it is to fight Morales 3x, Barrera 2x and JMM 3x AND LOSE ONLY ONCE. (well twice if you consider Pac-JMM 3 a JMM win)

Outpointing a Cotto who got massacred by Margarito and Pac suddenly makes him close out a very wide resume gap????

I already predicted this same shit fromFlomos with this fight. Afterall,isn't Cotto suddenly become UNSHOT? Even Ortiz actually suddenly became the young hungry lion, whose "no mas" against a B class fighter Maidana became a memory that was hidden.

where is the no option in the poll. Floyd is fighting all the guys Pacman fought, and yet Pacman fought the other greats before he even fought Oscar. Floyd is not close.
