Default Can we all just admit Manny was never that great?

Sure he was good, but he wont even crack the Top 100 all time list of fighters.

He was never as good ad Floyd.

The only great fighter he ever faced who was still great was a faded, blown up super feather weight in Mayweather.

Pac, JMM and Mayweather are great, probably Mayweather is the best but should be ranked the lowest since Pac and JMM took on all comers unlike Mayweather

If Pacquiao isn't great then Marquez's win over him is worthless considering it was a victory over a "lesser" fighter.

Pacquiao is a great fighter.....but his popularity always exceeded his greatness imho!

Hence why you had silly people saying he was in the 10 ATG and going further and saying he was better than ALI and I even heard people claim he was the GOAT.

Manny is an ATG... when he is on the steroids

Where did his fancy speed go? the 10 punch combos? the one punch knockout power?

I remember people saying that he had the fastest hands on the planet.

But he threw a lazy jab and got countered by a 40 year old which put him to sleep.

When boxing idiots try to discredit the loser by claiming that "so and so wasn't actually that good", they're oblivious to the fact that, logically, that statement has a double effect of also discrediting the winner.
