    I said this about a month and a half ago and was laughed at but if a 40 yr old Manny comes back and actually cleans out the top champions in the division would he be the best WW of all time. At this point it’s unbelievable he can still do this.

    He'd have an argument for the best WW list of wins if he beat Spence. I don't think anyone thinks he's the best WW (as in best h2h WW) of all time, though. I'm not completely sure if I'd have him top 10 (which is understandable given the fact that he's likely most comfortable at 35 or 40 and would be considerably outsized by most of the greatest WWs of all time).

    Nope. Tito put the the bar so high that NO ONE will ever be able to reach it

    Most definitely. That would also cement him as the P4P GOAT in my eyes.

    Then if he beats Canelo, Jacobs and GGG he may have a shot at MW GOAT.

    This whole gen of boxers of 140-147 would be spanked by May/Pac.

    Half of those weight classes didn't exist for the majority of all timers.

    He’s still what, a 5 weight lineal champ?

    Or is that also not good enough?

    I said he was an all time great before the Hatton fight. Not sure why you think I don 't rate Pac. Just saying its sort of silly to say he won all these titles and weights that didn't exist for much of boxings history. It means something in modern terms, sure but its sort of an unfair advantage when being compared to guys who couldn't possibly match those accomplishments as they didn't exist.

    He still has the most titles in the original AND the new weight divisions. Stop trying to devalue the GOAT's accomplishments.

    Nope..... Couldn't beat Mayweather and got put in a Coma his last fight with Marquez.
    His legacy is already solidified there's nothing he can do to make it better unless he beats Canelo, and that's not happening.

    You're retarded. Roberto Duran lost to SRL twice, including being stopped once. Still greater and ranked higher than SRL. Same exact case with Pacquiao. GOAT/top 5 ATG.
