in fairness to JMM, i dont think he is comparable to buster douglas. JMM was down 4 times against manny yet, he fought back power for power. he had some blood and guts fights against juan diaz, katsidis, barrera etc. He will not just be remembered as the man who knocked out manny but his counter-punching ability
Floyd will be remembered as the best tactician in his era. he will be mentioned in the same breath with willie pep and pernell whitaker. but there will be alot of criticisms under his fights post lightweight era. further, the names paul williams, antonio margarito, prime cotto and pacquiao will haunt his resume.
pacman will be revered by fans for ages because of his fighting style. he will be remembered as the guy who took all comers, defied weight classes and still come out victorious. his story of rags to riches to politician, philanthropist, entertainer etc will be mentioned. the second coming of homicidal hank, the guy with so much power in left hand.
we may never see another pacquiao in 40 years. hes rare. a pure definition of power, precision and heart
well said bro.
