Many believe that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is the greatest fighter of all time and not Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines. But this is a sort of big argument as it was already nailed in every boxing fans mind that Manny Pacquiao is the greatest fighter in the history of boxing eclipsing all boxing greats including Muhammad Ali.
But wait, they said that because of Floyd Mayweather’s win loss record and his significant wins against top contenders and future hall of famers’ fighters makes him ahead of Manny Pacquiao as the top fighter and the best of the world. He beat the best fighters of his generation to name a few: Zab Judah, Carlos Baldomir, Juan Manuel Marquez, DeMarcus Corley and other big names.
But hey wait! What about Manny Pacquiao? I think all of the great fighters who are so dominating and almost unbeatable were beaten not only by points but in knockouts with an impressive rout against fighters who are bigger and stronger than him. Only Manny Pacquiao who can beat those big guys impressively and never back down from any challenges that the opposition can give. Just to name a few: Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito, Juan Manuel Marquez, Eric Morales, Antonio Barrera, Ricky Hatton etc. These fighters are very much capable of beating and disposing Manny Pacquiao but because of Manny’s speed and power and together with the development of Freddie Roach, Manny Pacquiao become and no doubt the better and the greatest fighter of all time.
I would rather believe, if Floyd Mayweather Jr. will sign and face Manny Pacquiao in a mega blockbuster showdown and best Pacquiao convincingly to stop all the arguments and to dethrone Pacquiao as the pound-for-pound king and the greatest fighter of all time. In that way, he would simply become a true champion that if he can really manage to squeeze past Manny Pacquiao.
On May 7, 2011, another historic in the making in boxing as Manny Pacquiao faces off against Sugar Shane Mosley. This could be the defining moment for Mosley but Manny Pacquiao would simply too much for him and you will know what this all mean come fight night.
