the only 8 division champion in the history of boxing
fought all the best guys of his era in all the wt classes he fought in and beat them (avenging defeats also)
cant ask for more
i beleive FMW would soundly otubox pacman based on styles but even if that fight had happnd, Pacman would still be top 10 all time,
Oh hell nah. He's a great fighter but not a top ten great. Those 8 division championships are misleading-for one there are too many belts, he beat belt holders not "champions' and he fought them at catch weights.
Pacquiao isn't better than Mayeather(who also is not a top 10 all-time great) and he's arguably not better than Marquez. That's 2 guys in his own era who will go down as better boxers than him. Throw in Hearns, Duran, Leonard, Armstrong, Ali,Robinson, Pryor, Arguello, hell a shit load of other fighters I can't even think of right now and Pac's waaaaaaay down the list.
He's one of the best of his era-and that's pretty damn good still. But far from top 10.
