    2010—2019 (12-4-0)

    Joshua Clottey
    Antonio Margarito
    Shane Mosley
    Juan Manuel Márquez
    Timothy Bradley
    Juan Manuel Márquez
    Brandon Rios
    Timothy Bradley
    Chris Algieri
    Floyd Mayweather
    Timothy Bradley
    Jessie Vargas
    Jeff Horn
    Lucas Matthysse
    Adrien Broner
    Keith Thurman

    When Pacquiao fought them, they had a cumulative record of 560 wins against 36 losses. Only 2 fighters, Margarito and Matthysse, had been knocked out before at one a piece.

    By The Numbers

    Pacquiao boxed 103 rounds against 8 world class fighters and lost just 1 round:
    • Clottey (12-0)
    • Margarito (12-0)
    • Mosley (12-0)
    • Rios (12-0)
    • Vargas (12-0)
    • Lucas Matthysse (7-0, KO)
    • Broner (12-0)
    • Algieri (11-1; Chris won the 5th cleanly)
    Defeated 3 young, prime, and undefeated fighters (Bradley, Algieri, and Thurman); 4 if Pac had gotten the nod against Jeff Horn.

    Extremely Controversial Losses
    • Timothy Bradley I — pure robbery
    • Juan Manuel Márquez — PEDs
    • Floyd Mayweather Jr. — illegal IV fluis (PEDs)
    • Jeff Horn — pure robbery
    Records
    • Became 8 Weight Champion w/ vacant catchweight title match against Antonio Margarito
    • Became Lineal Champion for the 5th time
    • Became Oldest Welterweight Champion in boxing history
    • Became Welterweight Champion 3X
    Additional Consideration
    • At the early end of the decade, Pacquiao was violently and brutally KO'd and had the boxing world wondering if he would ever be seen in the ring again
    • Pacquiao was a part-time boxer throughout the decade
    • Pacquiao consistently gave up a significant size and weight advantage to all but 2 opponents (Marquez and Matthysse)
    • Pacquiao is still performing at an elite level at age 40
    • Pacquiao is a beltholder and has the best resume of any welterweight

    It will be a crime if Pacquiao doesn't win Fighter of the Year and Fighter of the Decade.

    Mayweather > Pac this decade. Although it's alot closer than it was 2 months ago.

    Mayweather only fought for half of the decade.

    Shane Mosley (good win)
    Victor Ortiz (was coming off of brutal fight w/ Berto where he was on the verge of being knocked out... twice)
    Miguel Cotto (good win in a close fight)
    Robert Guerrero
    Canelo Alvarez (drained, green)
    Marcos Maidana (draw was best case scenario for Floyd; paid 1.5 million to Maidana to wear different gloves)
    Marcos Maidana
    Manny Pacquiao (injured plus Floyd used illegal IVs)
    Andre Berto (lol)
    Conor McGregor (0-0-0 record)
    Teenaged Japanese Bantamweight Kickboxer

    Considerations
    • Had ultra low T/E ratios in 2 fights (red flag for doping)
    • Used illegal IV fluids in the biggest fight in the history of boxing
    • Paid an opponent to wear different gloves
    • Ducked Pacquiao for 5 years
    Uh, no.

    Close fight? (Lol)
    Ok. Multiple championship fights is green? Pacquiao has drained people as well...
    Double Standards are mad.
    Could've gone either way, Floyd had a won in there. Maidana let him...
    ****ing hell get over it cuz
    It's boring now. Show us the case for the IVs. Injured? Not Floyd's fault. And Pac
    re-injured it in the 3rd, it was supposedly fine going into the fight.
    Better than Clottey, Rois, Bradley, Horn (lol), Vargas and Algeri....

    Close was the wrong word, but it was a very competitive fight.

    Hmm... name another opponent that Pacquiao and Floyd fought that is talking about fighting at Light Heavyweight... Hmm... Hmm...

    Maidana won. And Floyd paid $1.5 million dollars for Maidana to wear gloves he wasn't used to.

    Floyd used illegal IV fluids for a non-existent medical condition. You are the one who can't understand or refuse to acknowledge the extreme shadiness of the situation. Find a way to deal with it. Just don't deny foul play.

    Wow. Better than Bradley, Clottey, Vargas, and Algieri? Hell, Rios might even stop Berto. You're ****ing dumb, dude. How hate does your deep run to say something so idiotic?

    Marquez arguably beat pac in all 4 fights. Him and Floyd aren't controversial.

    Berto is bottom of the barrel. I like the guy, but he is not better than some of the guys you mention here.

    He's on a level of those guys. For Pacroid to say lol at Berto (who Floyd didn't lose a round to) he should really be saying lol to Horn (who Pacquiao lost to)
    And he makes out like it was the worst robbery ever. I can see a case for a draw or a Horn win. The 3rd Marquez fight was worse

    Floyd and Marquez agreed on a catchweight. Floyd didn't bother to make the weight and paid the penalty. The fight wasn't on even terms.
