I don't think Pacquiao or Floyd have reached the level of Oscar in the US and Mexico has more people than the Phillippines.

Plus, Oscar had the female contingent.

But it is being said that Pac is receiving love from more than just the Phillipines. Several people have said that he is popular with most Asians they know. If that includes Chinese, Japanese, and Korea that's a boatload of people. BTW Pacific Islanders exist in more places than just the Phillipines.

Yeah, Pacquiao might be more popular worldwide than dlh was, but I'm pretty sure he isn't in the usa.

Post-Tyson era, dlh dominated the popularity scene in the sport. I'm guessing Pacquiao controls the Philippines scene, but they were already boxing fans. (Luisito Espinosa, for example). A large portion of Oscar's fans no longer exist--females.

I'm reading 'popular' to mean 'known' and not 'liked'. Otherwise, Floyd wouldn't be in consideration.

most of pacquiao's fans don't even know who luisito espinosa is. i was in S.F. a few years back and they announced him...he went totally unrecognized and got a very weak applause from the boxing crowd at the event i was at. it was really sad.

when i say popular....i guess it's a combination of known/liked.

If they don't know who Espinosa was, that's because:

1. They are too young to know; or

2. They live in the US.

It's not because he wasn't popular.

Espinosa had the largest crowds for a boxing event all all-time. He probably still does.

http://www.maxboxing.com/news/other-boxing...he-proper-stage

"For example, Luisito Espinoza versus Cesar Soto in 1996 drew an estimated 300,000 people to Luneta Park in the Philippines while 136,274 poured into Azteca Stadium in Mexico City to see Julio Cesar Chavez destroy Greg Haugen in five rounds. "
