Margarito was coming off a brutal drubbing, was brickless, and coming off of a year ban for disgraceful cheating, at a catchweight for a paper title. Where was he ranked? Yeah

Martinez UD Chavez, and it's not close.

For me it's Pac-Margo.

Shit when you think about it, Margarito is bigger than Martinez. Yeah I know about the catchweight, plus the hand wraps scandal which resulted in the Mosley loss, but you're still talking about a legitimate LW against a legitimate JMW. Pacquiao traded with Margo and took his best shots and dominated every minute of that fight. And contrary to popular belief, Tony was not shot at the time (but past his best).

That's not to diminish what Martinez did against Chavez because that was beautiful. I just think Pacquiao's destruction of Margarito was p4p the more impressive win.

Martinez vs Chavez was way more impressive. Martinez beat a legit fighter in his weight class who was top 3 or 4 in the weight class, who had real chance of winning. Margarito was Shot, he also came off a huge, brutal knockout loss to Mosley. Had been inactive for year, looked like shit against a journeyman Garcia. Was also tailor made for Pacquiao. Pacquiao beating a Shot Margarito coming off a huge beating to Mosley is not impressive. Mosley was win over Margarito was Much more impressive than Pacquiao win over Margarito.

I saw both and I dislike both Pacquiao and Mayweather and I think Pacquiao's victory was more impressive.

That's not taking anything away from Martinez though (who I like much more than either Pacquiao or Floyd) as his victory was impressive but from a p4p stand point, Pac's win was better.
