Pac is a greater historical fighter IMO. It is easy to remain undefeated when you get a gift decison in a fight you clearly lost & then took the path of least resistance.

Pac-man for me as a greater fighter(though PBF may be the better boxer)...PBF could shut my mouth wit a fight vs PWill, Cotto & Margarito though! Guess what, PBF won't so I guess I don't have to shut up.

Who you talking about bro...Castillo? Anyhow, PBF fought for money only IMO...Pacman fights to be great & is now getting the money! The way it should be IMO.

PBF is without a doubt the better fighter but when it's all said and done Pac could be greater...especially if he beats Hatton at 140

When I think about some of the greats in this sport I love so much! Guys like SRR, greb, tiger flowers, armsrong & many others...PBF ain't even close as a "great fighter", now skill wise, hell yea he can be talked about but not in my top 100 GREATEST FIGHTERS EVER!

Ummm don't you think you should add an '0'on to that and say top '50'of all time?

Just in the last 20 years I can think of 2 fighters that had better skills in Hopkins and Whitaker. Yes Bernard has some losses but most of them came AFTER he was 40!!!

Hell I'm even tempted to throw in the Toney of around 160-168 as being more skillful than PBF. He certainly took on tougher fighters with an astonishing regularity.

Then there is Leonard and I was looking at some old footage of Hagler recently (after his FNF apperance) and man that guy had mad skills.

Then there is of course Julio Ceaser Chavez. Shit if you really put your mind to it there are heaps. Pep, Robinson, Louis and so on so forth.

I'm not sure PBF would've beaten Tyzsu had they tangled in their prime.

The reason PBF looks so 'skillful' is because he never fought anyone in their prime apart from Castillo (and the first fight was life and death). Please don't count Corrales as being in his prime he had so much personal B.S going on at the time he was ripe for the taking.

Don't think I'm a Floyd hater, I buy his PPV's and really enjoyed his last fight versues an over matched Hatton I just don't think he's proven himself to be anywhere near as close as his hype pretends he is.
