While Donaire has a slim chance of equaling Pacquiao’s boxing record, he may after all be a better Filipino World Champion than Manny…for the following reasons:
Nonito has balls; recently he stood up to Arum while Pacquiao is an Arum stooge.
Nonito has an ordered life as a boxer whereas Pacquiao leads a chaotic life.
Nonito is focused in his career: Manny is into a lot of disparate activities often proving to be distractions to his boxing career, causing fans’ disappointment.
Nonito truly loves his fans: Pacquiao has forgotten his true fans, forces Pacland to shed its name, and does not even visit the website.
Nonito is in love with boxing: Pacquiao has lost much of his love for boxing because of politics and lately clerical interests.
Nonito is articulate in English which should endear him to Americans: Pacquiao according to some is unintelligible and incoherent in the language. He will be more appreciated with a translator helping him.
Nonito is simpler: Manny is a mishmash of dichotomies.
Nonito has Rachel who “marcials” (taekwondo expert) him into a disciplined, loving hubby: Pacquiao has Jinkee et al. He is a wayward husband who uses his fame and money to bed women who otherwise would not even cast a second glance at him.
...as a world boxing champ, you already acknowledged that nonito has a slim chance of equaling Pacquiao's accomplishments. in my book, he does not have a chance.
...as to the other reasons not related to their being world champs why include? this contradicts your thread. granting, you cannot compare their current situation. nonito being on the rise, while pacquiao is already on the retirement stage.
...as to their off-ring accomplishments, you are trying hard to compare the two. Pacquiao by far, has a lot.
let go of your hate and move on. myself, i've already moved on with the fact that boxing and boxing fans are no longer Pacquiao's priority of focus to please, but rather politics. to him, boxing and religion are both platforms to sustain his political aspirations as well as maintain his relevance.
