    Why? Way too many bad loses, loses and lost to his biggest rival in pbf wide. He gets love because people liked him and hate pbf. Like I always say if pbf had pacs record and career and pac had pbfs record and career no one here would be saying pbf was greater than pac.:deal: They would laugh about his shortcomings his lo loses and his one sided lose to pac h2h. You know this everyone in here does.

    I'd personally say he's the best managed. He was managed as well as Canelo had been getting managed until he started working with Hearn more.

    Mayweather is better than Pac. I think most would agree with that.

    In terms of greatness they are very close.

    Both are top 50, probably top 40. Neither are close to the top 10 though.

    He self managed and made the most money, so there’s a case for that in addition to best boxer.

    They were fighting tomatoe cans for opponents, keep it real. Sports science was nothing and most of those guys had day jobs

    So what? He had many loses while doing it. There's not a fighter on his resume that pbf doesn't beat. Pbf > pac
