Default How can anyone call Manny Pacquiao GOAT...?

When he got knocked out by two Filipino bums and a 40 year old man. Am I missing something here?

To me, for a fighter to qualify as 'greatest of all time,' they need to have been consistently great throughout their whole career. Manny lost at the beginning, middle, and end of his career, with three of the losses being brutal knock-outs.

He took a dive against Marquez only to stop Mayweather from ducking him.

Calling Manny a goat would make the list a zoo. You might as well include me in it if you did that. Manny is great, but I'm hesitant to put him in with the greats of all time. That's an illustrious list and Manny looks about as out of place as a cowlick.

He is one of the greatest of all times for sure. Your trolling attempt is nothing new. Duran got knocked out cold in 2 rounds by Hearns, does that mean he's a bum? Piss off please.

Roberto Duran is remembered because he quit. Sad, but true. Manny will be remembered for almost dying in the ring.

Its not his losses that bother me, he bounced back and the losses were early in his career

I hate the fact in his prime he took on guys coming off losses and at catchweights.
. Also doesent help that he could not cut off the ring and walked away from testing and cost us the biggest fight in history

Speak for yourself....REAL Boxing enthusiasts remember Duran as a phenomenal fighter and Pac's shocking ko comes only as a shock due to his dominance in the last decade.

I dont think ANYONE has or is calling him the greatest fighter of all time. He is certainly an ATG who has won titles at 8 different divisions, and beaten some of the greatest fighters of this generation.

His resume is massively impressive,and is certainly one of the best p4p fighters of the last 20 years.

I have him ranked below Prince Naseem on an ATG list, but whatever, it's all opinion.
