    Trinidad beats Pacs ass, sorry but Pac just isn't a legitimate WW to say he'd beat someone like Trinidad. Out of that list vs prime versions at 147, I'd say the closest fighter he'd beat is Mosley, although Mosley from the DLH fight up into the first Forrest fight was truly something special.

    I think Pac beats him. He is faster than him and his side to side on and out mvement would bother him.
    Sure, there is always a chance that he gets ko'd by that left hook but I favour Pac.

    Reality is due to his small size he is always at a disadvantage in these h2h welter fights.
    He was a lightweight or light welter punching above his weight for a decade.
    He does way better in the h2h matchups vs lightweigt atg's.

    But that doesnt mean he cant beat those guys listed. If he were to fight them 10 times each would he never beat pea, Floyd, Duran or Mosley?
    I think the version that fought Cotto could win those fights on a good night.

    Only person I can never see him beat is Thomas Hearns.
    SRL is extremely difficult as well.

    He doesn't "clear the list" but he comes away with a few W's and a few L's.

    Prime Pac is giving anyone a fight.

    Beats everyone but SRL and Hearns. Duran is fiddy/fiddy.

    Speed doesn't matter when you get timed, Pac learned that the hard way vs Marquez. Pac isn't some defensive wizard, he has a great chin but gets hit a lot and he likes to brawl, brawling with Trinidad at 147 is pretty much career suicide. Pac does considerably better when discussing ATG LW's but LW is probably the deepest division in boxing history, it's hard to gauge Pac's true caliber since he didn't fight anyone elite there, that Diaz fight was a farce. I think the Pac from the DLH fight vs the Duran from Montreal is an intriguing match up, competitive fight for 12 rounds, but considerable edge to Duran at 15 rounds.

    You also have to remember that Marquez had 36 rounds to put it all together. Plus he was roided and hulked out for the third and fourth fights.

    This is quite unfair for Pac, he may have a slight chance against Floyd, that's it. Honestly none of these fighters would go undefeated against everyone if there was a round robin. This is a brutal list.
