    Lol shot Morales, who was 29. Who came back 3 weight divisions and 6 years later to school Maidana and gave Danny Garcia a hell of a fight.

    Meanwhile, had Floyd fought Castillo in Mexico, Cotto in Puerto Rico, Maidana in Argentina and Pac in Philippines, he would have all those losses on his record.

    But ye, let’s compare his arbitrary win record protected by judges and ref in his own backyard, never fighting out of his literal backyard to guys who travel across the world to fight in his backyard.

    This. People are delusional. It’s not like Floyd scored 50 KOs. There are so many fights where he wins a round because he landed a jab or 2 more.

    Just lol if people think Floyd would have been awarded the same privileges if he wasn’t fighting in his hometown. They really think he’ll be allowed to bend below the waist so much and not get point deduction. They think he’ll be allowed to use his elbows. They think judges won’t score against his running.

    And they really think the hometown judges would score against their own man if Floyd landed a couple of jabs more.

    The last time Floyd got a decision that didn’t go his way, he cried.

    Fighters who travel abroad have to deal with this **** all the time.

    He lost to Maidana . He was in tears:crybaby2::crybaby2:whining that " Maidana roughed me up & beat me up & the ref did nothing to stop him. It wasnt fair" ROFLMAO!! Floyd was so used to Joe Cortez protecting him he thought it was the ref's job . But they appeased little Floyd they hired Kenny Bayless to be his new protector & he took over as Floyd's Moher hen guarding her chick LOL:abrazo:

    I was tempted to the other day, but I think leaving this idiotic monstrosity open, so he can take his relentless beating is preferable.:sisi1

    I haven’t read through all the posts but PAC is an 8 weight champion and has beaten (and lost to) some of the very best. He’s also taken some good scalps late into his career. Most successful sportsmen are overrated, because fans tend to be fanatical but PAC is one of the best of a generation. That’s not my opinion, that is fact. So there

    Pac had beaten convingcingly 5 lineal champ in 5 divisions. Can you name the lineal champs that Pacquiao defeated who were over the hill and weight drained?

    Sure, Morales after begin school shutdown by Raheem, David Diaz? Lol, Hatton after being beaten by Collazo and stopped by Mayweather, Cotto after a brutal assault from Margarito and in a catch weight, DLH after years fighting at 154 and 160 begin drag down to 147 looking like garbage against 2 pounds? Margarito 154 fighting Pacquiao at a catch weight? Are you this dumb?

    Morales, Cotto, Margarito, Dela Hoya were not lineal champ when Pac defeated them. You are not answering my question.
    Since it seems like you dont know the 5 lineal champ that Pac defeated. I will introduce it to you for your education.

    Sasakul the lineal flyweight
    Barerra the lineal featherweight
    Marquez the lineal super fetherweight
    Hatton the lineal junior welter
    Bradley the lineal welter

    Morales was still at a prime age when he lost Raheem. You cannot just discreted Pac's win against Morales simply because he lost to Raheem. Dont you know that after he lost to Pac he became he won several fights and became world champion. He won a major wbc belt at junior welter against Cesar Cano TKO. He had a close fight against Maidana, the one who beat Floyd. The results could have gone either way.
    Hatton was not a proven champion at Welter but he was the man at junior welter. After he lost to Floyd at welter he went down to junior welter he had two fights before Pac one of those was against Malignaggi where he won via Tko. Hatton was the lineal champ when he fought Pac.
    When Pac fought Dela Hoya despite Pac was the no.1 pound4pound almost all boxing communities and analysts did give Pac the chance because Pac was too small for Dela Hoya. He just jumped to lightweight when he fought Diaz. Just first fight at lightweight and he needs to jumped two more divisions to fight Dela Hoya. Pac was significanlty undersized. He could only make 142 lbs for a Welter battle. Before the fight almost everyone did not give pac the chance but after the fight the script changed... because De la Hoya was drained.
