question...do you wipe mayweather's ass?

Seriously? Answer the fuckin question without turning this into a Mayweather vs. Pac war. Go to boxing scene if you want that type of debate. This is why I hate Pacquiao to an extent, you can't question him without this type of bullshit. Grow up son.

I don't get it, see if anybody bitches after losing there a sore loser, but if Pacs opponent does it, it was fixed? Yeah I watched the interview, seemed like he was sore, either way he either sold out or got outclassed.

I am actually going off an interview he gave months after the fight, he said something on the lines that he was asked to take a dive. Now whether his words got mixed in translation, I have no idea, but that is what I was basing that comment on. Personally, diving for a boxing match can be tricky, which is why I think it is not done as often but shit who knows.

We will have to wait and see how he looks over his next few fights to make that decision. I've never been a fan of Pac, but when he does hang em up, he will be remembered as a GREAT fighter. And nothing less.

He's not a B-level fighter, not even with the KO at the hands of JMM. I think he can still compete with some of the elite fighters in the game it's jsut styles make fights and he fought against the style that has always proven to be his weak point. The fight with Rios will tell us more about where Pacquiao is at

As of right now, we have no idea what level Manny can perform at. No one knows how much the KO took away, but if we're going on his body of work, then, no, he is not a B-level fighter.

Catchweight or not, those were very impressive wins against top quality opponents. Even with the extra advantages he's been given, a b-level fighter wouldn't be able to do what he's done over the past 5 years.

he said he lost to him because he had to lose that day. word for word. This is after the interviewer batted down his claims about having trouble making weight. I think. lol

You just asked if I wipe Mayweather's ass which has nothing to do with this topic. If you can't answer intelligently I understand. Most people can not. If you notice most comments on this topic gave an educated opinion without name calling and they even gave reasons why they felt the way they did. Again grow up, calling someone names over the internet is soft.

I think he's a lot like mike tyson, great entertaining action fighter with a lot of holes in his game but the physical gifts to get away with it. Yea he's not the best technically but neither was Ali, rjj, guys like martinez, naseem, calzhage.. you don't have to be a technical fighter to be.great is the point. If you have the talent to get seats with it and that's how you become successful then more power to ya.

Theres plenty of incredible technical fighters who were never great

I can agree with this. So do you think he will be looked at as an ATG or just a good fighter with great athleticism? How do you rate his career? I liked him at the lower weights myself as he moved up I slowly came off Pacquiao.
