    lmao! There must have been a second fight between the two that I haven’t seen because Pac stunk up the ring in the one fight I saw between the two.

    How did Pac stink up the fight when he came forward the entire night, authored the two most significant sequences of the fight, and Floyd initiated a clinch everytime Pac came in even when he wasn't throwing?

    Hahahaha! PAC lost that fight 9-3. Mayweather never had to get out of first gear. After almost getting taken out by a right hand in the first round, PAC had flashbacks of Marquez, said ****-it and went into survival mode. It was a terrible fight. No one expected Mayweather to take it to PAC but I didn’t expect PAC to be so timid either. What excuse did PAC use after his underwhelming performance? “Ow, my shoulder hurt.”

    Mayweather was in full survival mode and was even glared at dismissively and lambasted by his father after the 7th round:

    "You fightin' like you scared, man!"

    Pac came forward all night and Floyd spoiled and grabbed. Pac was injured and Floyd was on the sauce (illegal IVs).

    Back to the thread, I thought Pac looked his best in the Cotto fight. I picked Pac to beat Cotto but I didn’t think he would do so in such an emphatic manner.

    That was a great fight and I rate it as Pacquiao's best win.

    Pac powered through Cotto, but he lost early rounds and took some punishment. I would say Rios, Algieri, Vargas, Bradley III, ODLH, or Hatton because Pac won almost every second of every round in those fights and barely got hit.

    Other than Marquez and obviously Mayweather, I think Cotto had the best combination of skill and strength that PAC faced. PAC lost the first Bradley fight so he definitely got hit and didn’t win every round. Don’t let your fanboyism overwhelm your subjectivity. Oscar was a heavy bag workout. He was so drained, he could hardly climb through the ropes.

    Had it 9-3 Pacquiao in Bradley I. The vast majority of viewers, fighters, and boxing insiders had Pacquiao winning that fight wide and without controversy. Andre Ward literally said Bradley should hand the belt back to Pacquiao.
