    look at the skills Ugas used in his fight with Manny Pacquiao to completely dismantle him. Does this fight prove than any fighter who knew how to use a 69 inch reach would have beaten a prime Pac, Margharito`s 73 inch reach was useless because he didn`t use his lead hand very well or his reach in general. Floyd`s jab dominated Manny for the same reason.

    Pac was 42.5 years old and coming off of a 2 year lay off...

    What's up with the crappy clickbait title?

    Every low-level clout chaser is coming out of the woodwork to show off how knowledgeable they are with their hyperbolic drivel.

    One of your three sentences seems off.

    The other two sentences though, also seem off.

    He did pick Pacquiao against Spence. But against Ugas he is not really confident for Pacquiao.

    "Does this fight prove than any fighter who knew how to use a 69 inch reach would have beaten a prime Pac"

    No. Ugas beat Pac, because Manny is shot. His sense of distance, volume, speed, reaction time and lateral movement are gone. For me it was like 30% Pacman

    Are you really trying to say that a 35 year old with half the amount of fights is as over the hill as a 42 year old?

    Ugas barely beat Pac and you call that "destroy"? Stop drinking and go to sleep.

    Manny was awful in there, Bud would have toyed with him.

    And so would have Spence, probably even more so. Pac should consider himself lucky and just call it a day on legendary career.

    No ****, but nobody is talking about Crawford. We're talking about Ugas. He didn't destroy anyone, so stop it with the hyperbole.

    Hyperbole much.

    A 1115-113 type win is hardly "destroys". Pac was frustrated by his inability to catch Ugas clean, but it wasn't like Ugas was pouring on the pressure and dominating Pac in any real way - all the rounds were close bar a couple of clear ones - most notably the 12th Ugas upped his work rate which I felt he should have done earlier when it was clear Pac was struggling to judge the distance and time him.

    Manny`s footwork was terrible, he couldn`t deal with Ugas`s 69 inch lead hand.
