    That it’s a complete joke that a world title fight, especially for a major title, was agreed to NOT have VADA or any enhanced testing done for it.

    Other than that, it’s a great win for Manny.

    Just makes Floyd's win over Manny that much more impressive.

    Floyd fought better versions of them all, except for Cotto. Look where Mosley was when Floyd fought him. Then look where he was when Pac fought him. When Pac went up above 147, he fought Margarito. When Floyd moved up, he fought Canelo.

    Floyd >

    We whine about the decision and complain that a judge didn't have it like we did, so it never happened.

    Heads up TS, Floyd and Pac actually ended up fighting back in the first half of 2015. Just FYI. You can probably Youtube it or something. You'll find your answer there.

    If we go by that then Fritzie Zivic is better than Henry Armstrong...

    I don't think there's a problem if someone has that as a very close fight. Pac had a handful of rounds where he wasn't very active at all and it allowed Thurman to come back strong for a few rounds.

    While I agree with Floyd's overall superiority, I believe we should keep in mind that Manny started his career at light flyweight, hence wrecking Margarito at 150 was still quite an achievement.

    That's like if Inoue moved all the way to those weights....


    It's amazing when you look through Pacquiao's resume but it seems even crazier when you imagine a younger current day fighter doing it

    They hate it. Floyd went out with a whimper vs Berto. Manny still humbling the elite young guns.

    Exactly. In the amateurs. Not exacty the same toll taken, and not as big an achievement. Neither was he as big as Floyd overall.

    People are acting like Manny was full grown fighting at 106 which isnt true. He isnt that much smaller than floyd naturally.
