Elorde might not be no.1 but he wasn't a joke,
He fought and beat opponents of different nationalities
whom Pacquiao have not faced.
Solomon Boysaw-American black fighter by UD
Harold Gomez-American,twice by KO
Giordano Campari-Italian by UD
Love Allotey-Ghana by disqualification
Vicente Rivas-Venezuela by UD
Terou kosaka- Japan 3 times by KO
Somkiat Kiatmangyon-Thailand by UD
And many others more.I think he's no.2 behind Pacquiao as of now.

Is Elorde the guy with 27 losses still number 1?

No wonder these filipino boxing writers does not get respect.

yep, and FYI: this thread is 4 years old (2007), it was the time that Pacquiao is blasting Mexican Legends and fights to COTTO, HATTON, DE LA HOYA, MARGARITO, and MOSLEY were just fantasies..so I hope you won't take offense on the thread's title..Now Pacquiao is number 1..

So let this thread commemorate the late great Elorde 8)
We must not forget that before Pacquiao, he was the one who put the Philippines in the boxing map. 8)

There is no doubt, Paquiao is the greatest Filipino boxer ... it will be hard to beat, maybe another Filipino will rise to the same level, but probably not in my lifetime ...

Pacman was featured in time magazine Person of the year! That alone makes him #1 among Filipino Boxing Greats!
Period!

Elorde No. 1 Among Filipino Boxing Greats


By Ronnie Nathanielsz

The late world junior lightweight champion Gabriel "Flash" Elorde has emerged No.1 in a poll conducted among a select group of boxing writers and commentators by QTV Channel 11 for a special to be telecast at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.

The survey also included the country’s top amateurs in the mix in which well-known TV boxing personalities and columnists including Ed Picson, Quinito Henson, Ed Tolentino and Chino Trinidad among others picked the top ten and explained their choices.

Surprisingly, Filipino ring idol Manny Pacquiao finished sixth in the survey topped by Elorde who reigned as world champion for almost seven-and-a-half years and was known for his decency both in and outside the ring. Elorde topped the poll with 65 votes ahead of the first Filipino world champion Pancho Villa who was enshrined, like Elorde, in the Hall of Fame. Villa who became world flyweight champion in 1923 was a close second with 63 votes.

Tokyo Olympic Games silver medallist Anthony Villanueva was third with 56 votes while former two-division world champion Luisito Espinosa got 48 votes for fourth spot followed by Atlanta Olympics silver medallist Onyok Velasco who received 43 votes to finish fifth.

Pacquiao who just suffered a setback in his bid to unseat incumbent congresswoman Darlene Antonino Custodio in the May 14 elections was sixth with 39 votes. Dodie Boy Penalosa who overcame the handicap of polio to become a two-division world champion was at No. 7 with 34 votes followed by former world flyweight champion Erbito Salavarria at No. 8 with 33 votes. The 9th spot was occupied by ex world junior lightweight champion Rolando Navarrette with 25 votes. Rounding off the top ten was former WBC super flyweight champion Gerry Penalosa with 19 votes.


thnx sir for the read...


elorde was the greatest filipino boxer until manny pacquiao came. this thread was posted on 2007. many things has happened for pacquiao since 2007 and even elorde would be proud for manny if hes alive.

Elorde is good only because of nostalgia ... the best Filipino boxing age is now, and will be remembered the most. Pacman did what Elorde cannot - win the lightweight championship for the first time ever by a Filipino (and Asian if I am not wrong).


To Elorde's defense, the guy he had to beat to win the lightweight crown was the legendary Carlos Ortiz of Puerto Rico in 15 round fights..Pacquiao cherry picked the WBC strap from a paper champ David Diaz instead of fighting the true lightweight king at that time Juan Diaz..both Diaz's were nowhere near the caliber of the great Ortiz..Elorde had a way tougher obstacle in lightweight than Pacquiao..The lightweight division during Elorde's time was a lot tougher..no comparison

Yeah... Elorde No. 1, wowwww..that is questionalble!!!. How many boxers have landed in Mexico or USA or in the boxing world map because of Elorde? NONE!!!

Who brings more honor and good reputation to the Republic of the Philippines... is it Elorde or Pacquiao? Who among our boxers who have helped a USA Governor and Congressman won their seats,... only Pacquiao who endorsed their candidacies to Filipino voters? Who among them have had meet a USA President Barack Obama, and much-sought-after by US Pres. Bill Clinton...? And admired by Hollywood famous Actors and Actressess?

These sports writers and the one who conducted this survery are BIASED and ENVIOUS of Pacquiao's achievements! You put Pacquiao to shame by ignoring the fact, that he is the only BOXER in world boxing history to have won 8 Championship Belts in 8 Boxing Divisions, and the fact, ... the only Filipino Boxer to become a multi-millionaire, gave many job opportunities to Filipinos... and become a Congressman, helping his constituents in time of their needs..., tremendously enriched his families through his boxing earnings, and enriching other people around him, too..., who among our boxers who have done the above to improve Filipino lives? Pacquiao should be credited also for DISMANTLING CHIONGBIAN DYNASTY in Sarangani Province where they lorded this impoverished province for over 40 years!!!

To these so called sport writers, and conductor of this survey, SHAME ON YOU!!!
:box: :chainsaw: :box:
