If you mean pac is better at inflicting punishment then yes he is, if you mean pac is more accurate at hitting you are mistaken, floyd has a much higher percentage of not wasting shots he throws at his opponent unlike pac.

There is nothing versatile about hitting someone and getting hit back.

Being efficent doesn't mean you're versatile. It just means you are more accurate and frugal with how you expend energy.

Floyd's connect percentage is not all that much higher than PAC who is also very efficent......even in the defensive category Floyd is not that dominant over manny on punches landed on them.

Hitting and getting hit is not what would be the definition of versatility, however.....having a wide array of offensive tools and impelementing those weapons on several different fronts would be considered "versatile".

Pac is better at hitting his opponents than Floyd is. Way better. He lands a lot more punches on his opponents than Floyd does. I'm not talking about accuracy but number of punches landed which is what hitting is all about, landing as many punches as possible.

Pacquiao outlands his opponents by a larger margin than Floyd does. Hit and don't get it is about landing as many punches as possible while taking as little as possible in return. That's what Pac is the best at right now in the entire sport. If you were talking about only not getting hit, Floyd is better than Pac. But hit and don't get hit, Pac has Floyd beat.

look at it this way if we fight for one round and I land 15 out of 60 punches on you and you land 5 out of 10 on me... who is better at hitting who?

Are you better because you landed 50% while I landed 25% or am I better cause I landed 3 times more punches than you did.

Look we need to stop pretending that floyd goes into the ring and uses the same game plan for each fighter, because that is not true.

The way floyd fought baldomir, judah, oscar, hatton, marquez and mosley has all been different. Yet floyd comes out of them fights able to hit and not get hit, not only does this show his versatility in regards to adapting to each opponent but also his skill level.

Pac is not more versatile. I don't even see how anybody can say it with a straight face and actually think they're right. Versatility is a clear cut word. Manny does it the same way amd fights the same fight, EVERY FIGHT.


His height and arm length and approach to the game imo, prevents him from being versatile. Lets just punch punch punch until we win

Manny definitely does not fight the same way every fight. You'd have to be a fool to think he does. Look at the Oscar fight, the Hatton fight, and the Clottey fight. It's like 3 completely different fighters.

Same way every time??

unbelievable the shit that people say on this forum.

15 out of 60 is a terrible percentage. That guy who throwing 60 punches and only landed 15 needs some work.

Coming from a guy who says Pac is more versatile than PBF that's rich. Pac can't even deal with movement yet he's more versatile.

Their stats throughout their whole career says otherwise.

More of the same ol "It's just Floyd" bullshit from floyd fanboys.

So who's movement really befuddled Pac BTW? To the point he can't deal with it?

While making pac look very ordinary in the process. How does that work?

If pac was so versatile how come he failed to adapt to what mosley was doing to him?
