    Depends on who the young lion is, Crawford would toy with Manny now.

    There were welters like Hearns that punched harer than a prime Manny so I doubt he`s hitting harder than one of the most devastating heavies of all time in the autumn-winter of his career.

    16 x Trainer of the Year Freddie Roach says otherwise and Freddie has held pads for them all

    Says otherwise? Would Roach argue than Manny hits harder than Tommy Hearns did also? There`s a nifty late trainer called Manny ironically who would probably disagree with Roach and he trained other lethal punchers that hit harder than Manny like Moorer and the G-man, I feel Freddie`s slightly getting carried away.

    Hearns had a great right hand but I wouldn't say it carried more pop than Manny's left. I will concede that it is close between Manny's and Tyson's power though.

    Hearns hurt Hagler I doubt Manny could even make the iron chinned Marvin even blink, you think Manny`s left hand is more powerful than the right hand Hearns knocked middleweight contender James Shuler out with?

    You're trying to troll me into speaking bad about one of my favs The Marvellous One but I'm way too slick for that.

    But yeah, I do give Manny the edge in power over Tommy.

    I think it was Arum's doing. Pac, Horn and Craw all with Top Rank at the time. Rushton doesn't have the Power to pull that type of heist.

    Maidana fights with little to no respect for his opponents punches. Reckless and balls to the wall, pac used to be that x100. But he is alot more cautious now

    And he didn’t have a stoppage for damn near a decade? I get the feeling we will have a lot of crazy excuses for a Pacman L.

    People don't understand hyperbole.

    :nusenuse:

    Like when Pac joked that he healed his shoulder by swimming in the Dead Sea after he posted post surgery pics.

    Well over a decade actually - Mike retired in 2005.
