Do you think Manny Pacquiao is the best boxer ever after defeating a lot of famous mexican fighters and recently just defeated hatton and miguel cotto???
full fight video: Pacuiao vs Cotto
Manny pacquiao just defeated Miguel Cotto yester day, November 15 in the 12th round with a knockout. And before that early this year he defeated Ricky hatton with a 3rd round knockout. Freddie Roach - Pacquiao's trainer says that "he wants Pacquiao to fight Mayweather jr. next"... I think Pacquiao is the best boxer ever!!

...I know I'm just being an ass. But yeah, Pac will be remembered for all his acheivements when he retires- hopefully soon, when he's done with Mayweather (every fiber in me wants to see Manny beat the living f*** out of Mayweather). It will be a tough fight for Manny though, since he's always had trouble with defensive boxers, counter-punchers--- and Mayweather is quite possibly the only boxer with god-like skills in those areas.
But as for the "greatest boxer" talk--- people will always have the problem of praising the past (Robinson/Ali/Leonard etc) over the present(Pac/Mayweather/ODLH/etc). When its 2090 though, and when Pac's long gone, we'll see if his legacy still remains.
