Manny Pacquiao is the Pound for Pound King in Boxing!
USA Today with no argument chose the reigning Pound for Pound King Manny Pacquiao as the “Fighter of the Year” beating the promising and surprising Argentina’s Sergio Martinez.
Now the prestigious and most respected Ring Magazine announced the results of fan poll recently which the Filipino once again topped over Martinez. Manny Pacquiao deserve the best in boxing as he showed how tough he is by disposing fighters with respectable records. He did climb from division to division to face the best fighters because nobody can really fight on his real weight. With that alone it was very unprecedented for a boxer to succeed in 8 different divisions and won 8 titles in 8 divisions.
Boxing writer Michael Rosenthal reported that Manny Pacquiao received 71 percent of the fans votes while Sergio Martinez got only 24 percent. It is not a question if Martinez deserves the award, but it is undeniably that Manny Pacquiao deserves all the awards in boxing.
Though, Ring Magazine said it wasn’t Manny Pacquiao greatest year in terms of accomplishments but it certainly was a productive year and he gives boxing fans a worth of their money.
Now, to start the year in 2011 he will be facing the future hall of fame in boxing no other than Sugar Shane Mosley. Would it be a year of success again for Manny Pacquiao? Or Mosley will shock the world come May 7, 2011? These are only few questions that surround’s in his upcoming fight. Because many believe that Sugar Shane Mosley is not fit to face Manny Pacquiao, he is too old for Pacquiao.
But still, we anticipate for this fight as this could be the invitation for Floyd Mayweather Jr. to accept the proposal to fight the legendary Manny Pacquiao.
