Folks are going to be mad and say it should be floyd but 4 fights in five years just isn't enough, ppl are going to say ward but ward just truly got his star, others will say such and such..listen Manny isn't a bad choice in anyway shape or form. He's a polite person in public and that alone diffuses a ton of stereotypes related to boxing. He's camera friendly, the 'title' isn't official, he isn't getting more of a purse for it, he isn't going to have an easier go in a fight because of it.
I respect your assessment because it was non-bias. Why boxing fans really dislike Pacquiao is not so much he is a bad person, because we don't know them personally. It is because the people who support Pac, just trash talk, obnoxious, and say crazy shyt! It is cool to be passionate about your favorite fighter, but Pac is the main person they know, and all of a sudden they become "boxing experts".
Like I don't hear fans of other fighters say half the dumb shyt they say, they stay on topic and think their fighter will win, but in a way that make sense. Not "pac is almighty powerful" and "people are scared of him" they say that and when you start bringing in facts they can't answer the question. So that's why people mainly dislike Pacquiao, and they feel he doesn't stand up for himself!
