I can say with almost 100% certainty that Manny Pacquiao is the greatest fighter to ever live. His accomplishments, impact and influence on the sport and the great fighters he defeated leave no doubt in my mind that he is at the top. If you take in all the other factors like amateur experience, quality of trainer and access to quality gyms with quality fighters to work with, Manny is without a doubt the best ever. Can anyone imagine just how much greater Manny would have become if he had been raised in a boxing family like the Mayweathers along with the amateur experience and training in the Untied States. These missing pieces only make Manny Pacquiao stand head and shoulders above all past and present fighters. Manny Pacquiao learned to fight on his own. He became the only 8 division Boxing champion in history. He is at the top, and that accomplishment will never be duplicated again, trust me. A prime Manny Pacquiao had faster hands, better punching power, better agility and movement and more stamina than any fighter in history. If Manny had decided to stay at his best weight(140) that he can still make easily, no one would have ever beaten him. Manny is a miracle man to have stepped up and competed and defeated all those fighters in higher weight classes. Manny Pacquiao pound for pound IMHO is better than SR Robinson, SR Leonard. JC Chavez, H Armstrong, Kostya Tzyu, Tyson, Ali, RJ Junior, F Mayweather and others. Fans all remember Manny’s Reign of Terror as he tore through Barrera, Marquez, Hatton, De La Hoya, Margarito, Cotto, Clottey, Diaz, Mosely and others. His fights were the most action packed and exciting ever. Fans flocked from all over the world just to see him fight. Manny Pacquiao has always fought to make his fans happy. He is a warrior that challenged himself and never ran from anyone. Great fighters like Tyson, Roy Jones, Larry Holmes, Marvin Hagler, JC Chavez, Bradley, James Toney, Lennox Lewis, Roberto Duran and many more boxing legends have continually praised Manny Pacquiao. Fighters from all eras ahve been complimentary of this great iconic legend, and that speaks volumes about Manny Pacquiao the fighter and the man. Boxing fans today are lucky to have seen this once in a life time master piece of a fighter step into the ring and display his brilliance, greatness and unbelievable talent. Manny s more than a Picasso, more than a President, more than prodigy. Manny Pacquiao is boxing. I can still see the beautiful face of Dionesia Pacquiao cheering her son on with all of her passion, emotions and love for her son. She had a cross and her picture of baby Jesus as she was concerned for her son and prayed to God that Manny would not be hurt. There is nothing more touching and beautiful than to see a mother praying for her son and feeling each and every punch as if she was being hit. Manny Pacquiao should be proud to have such a loving and caring mother. Dionesia Pacquiao is a blessed lady to have given birth to the greatest fighter in boxing history. Trust me on this. Manny is the best ever!Posted April 16, 2014 2:19 am

The BUZZ continues after Manny Pacquiao’s clear victory over a tough, hungry and more experienced Timothy Bradley. There are still those that still questioned the greatest fighter of this era and possibly the greatest fighter of all time. People need to realize that Manny Pacquiao has not taken an easy fight in the last 11 years. He has been in the most exciting fights of all time. This is a warrior with the physique of a natural light weight that has had to be forced to eat to make the weight. This is a small man in stature that challenged himself to take on the best and he beat them all. He could have easily stayed at 130 and never lost a fight, but he chose to be great and took risks and challenges through 8 weight classes. Unbelievable!!!!! Manny Pacquiao won last Saturday’s Mega Fight against Timothy Bradley, and he may have not looked like the Manny of old, but he still dominated. Yes he’s 35 years old, and the years of hard work and preparation may have worn on him a bit, but don’t think for one second he can’t beat Floyd Mayweather because he can. All great fighters like Manny Pacquiao still have it in them to put on a great performance. Remember, Bradley was familiar with Manny Pacquiao’s style because he went 12 rounds with him before so he has some familiarity with Manny’s unique style. The same goes for Marquez. They spent time in their with the legend. Floyd Mayweather has none. Manny Pacquiao would have Floyd Mayweather running, stumbling and holding on for dear life. Great fighters can do special things when put to the test. Manny is more than just a great fighter. He seems like he’s off balance at times, but he can hit you from anywhere. He looks small, but can hurt you at any time in a fight. He has great movement that can befuddle you at any time. Manny has the ability to change a fight at any time. He doesn’t have to destroy you to win. He can box, move or simply destroy you in a fight. Manny went from fighting a former champion in Rios, and boxing magnificently to fighting a P4P fighter that was unbeaten, and was out fought and out boxed throughout the fight. As I have always stated, Manny Pacquiao beats anyone on a one fight basis. His style is to complex to figure out, and Floyd Mayweather wants no part of Manny for this reason. Floyd Mayweather knows that he can’t compete with a great fighter like Manny Pacquiao. He won’t risk it or take a chance on losing, which he would. Boxing fans, Manny Pacquiao is the most celebrated and influential prize fighter that has ever lived. We don’t have to see PPV numbers to see the impact he has on peoples lives all over the world. Millions upon millions of Manny Pacquiao fans will never get to see him fight live or on TV because they can’t afford it or don’t have access to getting to venue where the fight is being shown. Manny Pacquiao crosses all boundaries when it comes to popularity. No one will account for those fans living in impoverished neighborhoods around the world. Manny is their only hope. He fights for justice. Manny Pacquiao cannot be denied his greatness by anyone. His character as a man and as a fighter is unblemished. This is a man of God that was put in this position for a reason, and he’s helping those in need. I think it’s time to stand up and salute the great Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao. Excuse me for a brief moment as I stand and salute as many of you will also………………..Trust me on this, Manny is the best!Posted April 15, 2014 12:33 am

Manny Pacquiao is Boxing’s most important and influential prize fighter today. There is no comparison. Manny routinely fights the best of his era, and put son a show. The fight everyone has been wanting to see for 6 years will never happen. The drug testing issues have been resolved a long time ago. The truth is that Floyd Mayweather truly FEARS Manny Pacquiao. Sparring partners that have been in there with both all say the same thing. Manny is something special. You can’t see his punches, his movement and angles he throws punches at are incredible. And his power is destructive. Floyd’s family (dad, uncles) have been outspoken for years regarding Floyd’s safty if he were to fight Manny Pacquiao. It’s out in the open now. Floyd Mayweather has ruined his already tarnished image forever. Never has a boxing champion been questioned by so many of his own peers. Manny Pacquiao continues to earn more credibility and admiration by taking on the best in boxing. He has nothing to prove. Manny Pacquiao proved to the world that he fights for the fans. He gives 100% each and every time, and he’s not afraid to take chances. The 15,000 plus fans at the MGM Grand watched a living legend put on a show that no one will ever forget. Manny Pacquiao will never be forgotten. He has never had an easy fight. The best ever. Trust me on this.Posted April 14, 2014 4:36 pm

Hope all is well with you.
Look at all those people who see someone they once knew succeed and then the bitterness and jealousy wells up in them and they can only see the bad in them.
I remember reading about U.S. shock jock Howard Stern, who was very close to the knuckle with risqué material on the radio, bringing in naked women, lap dancers and bunny girls and talking smut live on the radio.
Anyway, the statistics revealed that those people who were fans of Stern on average listened to 40-50% of his show, BUT those people who were dead against him would almost never miss a show and when they listened they would listen to the whole show!
I am not immune to this as I rag on Amir Khan, because I have always thought he was a queue-jumper, right back to his Lightweight days, but I find not reading these columns too much helps in not getting too het up on fighters, either way.Posted April 14, 2014 11:35 am

“Canelo or someone on his team is a SISSY. Why would you struggle to make weight when you can easily move UP to MW or SMW??? ”
Well then, by that reasoning, Mayweather is the biggest sissy of all. He wouldn’t fight Canelo until Canelo agreed to fight him at a catchweight. He wanted Canelo weakened because he was too much of a sissy to fight Canelo at his fullw weight. Why would Mayweather make Canelo struggle to make weight when Mayweather is the self-proclaimed and acclaimed GOAT?
Sissy is as sissy does. But you already know that, don’t you, Sissydamus?Posted April 14, 2014 11:03 am

Bradley won the WBC and WBO belts from Witter and Holt. Then handed Alexander (who beat Maidana) and Peterson (who beat Khan) their first losses. Tim had pretty much cleaned up at 140. The Ruslan and Juan victories enhanced his resume further. As I said, Tim is the 3rd best fighter 140-147. … And incidentally, Manny whupped his a$$.Posted April 14, 2014 5:48 am
@Enough already … Garcia is the champ at 140. Why? Because Bradley moved up to go after the big fights. Aside from Floyd and Manny, Bradley is still the best fighter 140-147.Posted April 14, 2014 5:40 am
Lara has managed to find himself in Pole PositionPosted April 14, 2014 5:17 am
What more is left to say about the legendary Manny Pacquiao. Last night’s fight against Timothy Bradley showed Manny’s ability not to be reckless, but patient and calculating. Manny’s timing seemed to be a little off, but he went for it on several occasions. At one point throwing and landing 10 or more punches. The speed was there as were Manny’s tremendous legs. He often moved and had Timothy swinging at air. There were many fantastic toe to toe exchanges, and Bradley connected solidly early in the fight even staggering Manny, but Manny would not let this fight get away from him. This was his moment to get redemption for the tragic unfair loss that he had unjustly received by a bunch of inept boxing judges. This was Manny’s opportunity to show the doubters in the boxing world that his time was not yet over as he had stated. There were times when Manny seemed a bit off with his punches. His timing and accuracy were also a little off, but he kept fighting and landing many clean and effective punches on a more difficult Timothy Bradley. Bradley was more confident, used excellent defense, and tried pushing the pace early as he threw many hard shots to Manny’s head and body. Both warriors let their best punches go. Manny Pacquiao at age 35 put it all together in the final rounds and brought the fans to their feet. Was this the best Manny Pacquiao we’ve seen, probably not. Was he over trained or just simply showing signs of father time catching up. Regardless, now is the time to give Manny Pacquiao his just due. This warrior has given boxing fans some of the greatest fights in boxing history. At times it was difficult to see who was fighting harder, Manny Pacquiao or his mother Dionesia. This lady was picking up the pace as each round ended. She used every ounce of energy as she tried willing her son to victory. This was a very touching moment as we saw mother and son both trying to bring home a victory. On the other side was Timothy Bradley. A courageous fighter with a desire to win that would not quit until it was over. Timothy is a classy young man that also deserves a lot of credit. He redeemed himself by sharing his honest thoughts on the winner. He gave all that he had, and admitted it wasn’t good enough on this night. He gained a lot of fans. Where does Manny go from here? I’m not sure. Marquez? Provodnikov? Garcia? Porter? Who knows. What we do know is that Floyd Mayweather will not be next. He will forever be remembered as the fighter that robbed fight fans of a Mega Fight. Only he knows the real answers. Manny Pacquiao has fought the best of his time and beaten them all. It’s time for all fans to recognize this fierce warrior. He’s gone through tough times inside and outside the boxing ring, and he’s always come out on top. Manny Pacquiao accomplished his mission on April 12th. He now has to decide what he does from here. Both Jinkee and Manny’s high spirited want him to retire. I hope he makes the right choice himself and his family. Manny will one day be missed by everyone, trust me on this. Manny is the best!Posted April 14, 2014 1:21 am

“Everyone should have a ton of respect for Canelo win or lose. This is what we expect from the best fighters in boxing. Credit to him and his team for putting the two best fighters at 154 pounds on PPV….I personally think this is a very bad style match-up for Canelo. But he deserves a lot of credit and respect for making a fight that the real fans of boxing want to see.”
I fully agree with that and like the way you think, Joe. Canelo accepted Lara’s challenge, unlike FMJ, and wants to fight the very best in the world. He’s not afraid to take a loss like a REAL warrior, so I say he has balls of steel. I think Lara is a bad stylistic match-up for everyone at 154lbs. And that’s why FMJ has been ducking him along with a couple others at ’54 — not to mention PacMan.Posted April 14, 2014 1:05 am
Herron find out what the overweight penalty IS for Canelo vs Lara. I smell Canelo coming IN over weight again. He doesn’t want to Fight for Lara’s title which means that he doesn’t have to make 154 like he didn’t for his last Fight. Lara will beat him regardless of weight though. I DO APPLAUD Canelo for taking a Fight that GGG wouldn’t take. Canelo isn’t afraid of SKILLED competition like GGG is. Lara is Top 10 in the Sport while Chavez Jr. is borderline Top 50.Posted April 14, 2014 12:16 am
Canelo or someone on his team is a SISSY. Why would you struggle to make weight when you can easily move UP to MW or SMW??? They have no faith in his SKILLS thats WHY. SO they want to exploit their weight advantage to make UP for lack of SKILLS.Posted April 14, 2014 12:11 am

Canelo still has a strong fan base and is one of the biggest names in the sport…Gogue recognizes that.
What Gogue meant was that a lot of Mexican fight fans who were really disappointed with his performance against Mayweather aren’t quite back on board the Canelo Express.
If he comes up big against Lara, all of his fans will be back in full form and banging the drums once again.
I personally think this is a very bad style match-up for Canelo. But he deserves a lot of credit and respect for making a fight that the real fans of boxing want to see.Posted April 13, 2014 11:33 pm

“He was at the MGM Grand during the Angulo fight and Spoke to a lot of fight fans at the event. He stated that most of the Mexican fight fans in attendance were pulling for angulo.”
That might be true, Joe, but it doesn’t mean that Canelo lost his fan-base based on a poor performance. (That’s how Gogue was making it sound.) It means there may have been more Angulo fans in attendance that night — probably because he lives and trains in Cali and Vegas is a lot closer to his own back yard. (But according to my digital surround-sound, there were still more fans at the MGM cheering for Canelo.)Posted April 13, 2014 11:19 pm

No, fighters are NOT business people first. They’re supposed to be athletes and warriors first. If they want to be business people first, they need to walk away from the ring and go work in corporate accounting, finance, engineering or marketing.
Guys like Ronnie are the reason why the best rarely fight the best in boxing these days. Because they 100% support the Haymon ideology of giving fighters the lowest risk fights for the highest rewards. That’s NOT what fans want to see! So you can’t say “it’s all about the fans” when the work you do behind the scenes goes against the best interest of the fans. Boxing fans are beyond SICK and TIRED of the best not having to fight the best. That’s what’s been hurting boxing more than anything — along with weak cards and overpriced PPV.Posted April 13, 2014 10:26 pm
