There is no doubt that Manny Pacquiao is one of the greatest fighters of all time, but too bad, he will forever be remembered as the recipient of the "Punch from Hell" thrown by Juan Manuel Marquez.

Image
This is the single most important, lasting image in all of boxing in this century, Pacquiao put to sleep with a single punch.

I dont think he will just be remembered for being ko'd because there is no denying what he has accomplished in and out of the ring.

For that brief moment, Pac lost concentration and paid dearly for it. :?
Nobody has any argument Pac is among the top 10 GOAT anymore imo.
He showed he can be careless and get nailed for it.
He got nailed at least two more times doing almost the same move on JMM that night.

Marquez's punch will be forever tainted because of his affiliation with Herdia

YES YES YES!!!

The video of the punch by JMM and the brutal KO of Pacquiao will be used as a promotional material for boxing shows and events in the future.

That punch by JMM was a real beauty.

Pacquiao will no more be remembered for his KO loss to Juan Manuel Marquez than Sugar Ray Leonard is remembered for his beating at the hands of Terry Norris, or Sugar Ray Robinson for his loss to Joey Archer, or Joe Louis for his loss to Rocky Marciano.

Pacquiao really has nothing left to prove, and whether he walked away now or stayed on, he'd still be revered as one of the greatest boxers of this generation.

"lost concentrated" may still be right. :lol:


Pac was "lost concentrated" when his focus was severely divided by politics, showbiz, and religion - so, he got nailed!

Pac was confusedment , siguro.
Or lost focusing from too much prayering .

For the life of me, I still can't figure out how Pac was so dumb that last 10 seconds. He nailed Juan earlier, Juan came after him .
Pac slid to his right, JUAN WAS way off angle and was primed to be smacked.
Instead of darting in and nailing Juan, Pac let Juan square up by running away from him, then he attacked him from the middle. :shock:
Wuttdapak!
Where was Pac's ring IQ?
When he fought Cotto, he nailed Cotto when Cotto came after him on the ropes by sliding out then jumping on Cotto. That was when Pac was great at cutting distance in a blink of an eye.
