    I already have Pacquiao at number one on my list. I thought P4P meant if the fighters were at the same weight then who would win and if Pacman and Floyd were the same size I think Manny would overwelm him. Plus I kind of nuthug Manny.
     
  3. I have manny at 2nd. floyds on another level techical wise. you saw what JMM did as a counter puncher. picture what floyd can do to him.

    I think Mayweather has the right to that spot. Im not biggest fan of p4p listings, but using what they offer its hard to justify putting Pac higher than Mayweather based off the Marquez win as Mayweather has handled his competition in even more emphatic fashion. Pac is more exciting, but Mayweather is just untouchable to most of his opponents.

    I could go either way. Pac is a beast. PBF is a boxing genius. Pac has the edge in comp imo.

    Meh. Pacquiao is busier, but the argument could be made that most of his opponents are past their pime.

    He is busier and more exciting, and is in better fights, but thats the thing with Mayweather, he is so good that many of his fights just arent competitive as fighters cant deal with his ability. Several fighters have been touted as the one to push him, and he's barely had to get out of 3rd gear to either KO them or win a wide UD at a canter. p4p doesnt measure the most exciting fighter, its the best, and Mayweather is that right now IMO despite Pac being a phenomenal fighter and crowd pleaser.

    As if Floyd's resume beyond Castillo is absolutely solid.

    Floyd is definitely #1 for me, Calzaghe will be #2 if he beats Hopkins.

    Just because he is an arrogant asshole, it doesn't mean that PBF isn't number one by a landslide. If anything JMM has as legit a claim to second as Pac does, being that a lot of people believe he won the second fight.

    Oh, and I agree if Calzaghe beats Bhop, I may slide him into second, especially if he does it convincingly.

    For arguments sake...My problem with PBP being #1 is that the ranking is meant to speculate that if weight was not a factor who woudl be the best. Floyd is yet to fight the best at his current weight so how can he be #1?

    Manny is 5-1-1 against Barrera, Marquez, and Morales. And if he wanst cut horribly early in that first Morales fight i think he would be 6-0-1.

    I'm not a fan of PBF (even tought he has made me some money) but i have to admit he's the best so he's #1. even tough pacquiao "won" his last fight i would put calzaghe above him if he beats hopkins landslide or not

    #1 is Mayweather.

    Beating a top level fighter (De La Hoya) who is 2 weight classes above you is just insane.

    Its questionable to say he is the best pound for pound fighter in the world he is defintely in the top 3 but probably not number 1

    I'd put him at number one only because of the quality of fighters he has beaten is more impressive compared to Mayweather's.

    Trilogy with Morales Is just amazing to think about, and two fights with Barrera (I would definitely say the first fight was a Prime Barrera). Same with Marquez. You don't have that level of competition on Floyd's resume.

    It could be argued that Floyd was just too good for rematches or trilogies or that most of his opponents after Castillo were on their way down anyway, but I guess at this point Cotto is the deciding factor for Floyd to be P4P #1.

    from what you said here, i gather that you don't think pacman really won the fight? please explain this to me.

    i have pac a very very close second to pbf on the p4p list, and depending on pbf's activity in the remainder of the year, pacman could easily jump ahead of him
