Default What do you think about Manny Pacquiao?

So what do you think? Can he beat Floyd?

Hey, PacMan reminds me of Homicide Hank, previously the top contender for the world's best boxer before PacMan came along. Hank (Henry Armstrong) held three world titles simultaneously, in the days when the divisions were one-stone (14 pounds) and therefore twice the size, and the equivalent of six weight divs now; and there were more boxers; and there were 15 rounds not 12; and there was only one world authority instead of the alphabet boys now. He still has a big claim on that all-time best title even after PacMan.

Hank was a uniquely fit man, in the true sense of the word unique. He had unlimited natural stamina and could fight round 15 exactly the same as round 1, which combined with extreme durability made him an unstoppable machine.

The modern equivalents most often seen are the ex-Thai boxers who get to the top in international boxing - think Chitrlada, Samart, Galaxy, and PacMan of course. Very tough, impossible to hurt, supremely fit. PacMan looks like a Homicide Hank clone in the fitness department - supremely strong at the finish. You sure win a lot of fights that way if your chin is tough.

I don't know the form as I don't follow it any longer. PacMan vs Mayweather sounds like a good fight but it looks as if PacMan is fighting above his weight as he's run out of opponents? Shame really, do that enough times and you lose.

I think he is retiring. HE said that he'll wait for floyd to challenge him or else he will retire.

//Slightly off-topic.

Pacman's effect in the Philippines is amazing!, being on these roads once myeslf, I can say that they are normally packed with Jeepneys and Cars alike.
These streets like I said are normally filled with cars

Manny Pacquiao on his 8th world title: "Anuman na-achieve ko, tayong lahat yun." "Whatever it is that I achieved, it's all us."

Pacquiao is a great fighter for our time and I believe that he would easily beat
Mayweather if they ever get into a ring. Now, if he had fought people like Duran
or Leonard we would not be talking about him. I can think of 8 to 10 fighters
from 1980 to 1995 that would have easily beat him. Julio Cesar Chavez like
Leonard or Duran would have won by knockout, easily.

I prefer MMA, which is a much more diverse sport.
