Note: that pfp ranking were done in summer of 77, not end of year, when I think he may have received some votes.
Thanks very much, been trying to find out how highly regarded he was at the time

What, they've beaten the guys they've beaten now and that counts as their '77' (Manny hasn't had a great year!) or they're in that era?

Mayweather would be ****ed in terms of resume. I'd pick Manny and Floyd to outpoint Palomino over 12.

PAc's career would have ended prematurely at the novice stage after ill-advised weight draining and careless matchmaking saw him reduced to a near-vegetable state at the hands of Borkhorsor or Olivares, or maybe Zarate in a non-title fight or something.

mayweather could make a name for himself at 130, though he would need to triumph against Arguello and maybe make a successful move to lightweight to start to hit the top 5.A hight rating would be do-able if he was willing to put the effort in though.

Pac would be ****ed without some shrewd early matchmaking

I imagine he wouldn't have fought at Fly! But yes, even fighting as a smaller feather, he would be okay on the Sukhothai, Navarette, Cabanela circuit, but not at the top level.

At Feather against the likes of Chacon, Olivares and Lopez? Incredible fights all three, he'd likely suffer a loss here and there as he did against the guys he foughts in his own time.

Going on him making a natural progression through the weights, he isn't doing anything at Lightweight. Duran would muller him.

Cervantes Vs Pac' at 140 is not something I've contemplated before. I'll go Cervantes points, can't be arsed to think about it.

Palomino would give Manny rougher moments than Margarito did. I'll favour the 147lb Pac' that demolished Cotto to just come through 15 rounds and win on points in a terrific fight.

Benitez would beat Pac' on points IMO, in a tremendous fight. Manny will have his chances to score when Benitez is chilling, his fast handed swarming against Benitez's defence will make a few hard-to-score rounds IMO.

I'll go for the best 140lb Floyd to beat Benitez in a close one at 140. The Benitez that beat Palomino at 147 Vs the Floyd that fought Baldomir? Meh, Benitez just because he's better.
