However, if he was American he probably would be rank lower cuz he wouldn't be able to have the accomplishments he has gotten. For example he would not have won a Fly weight title. Maybe wouldn't have won the 122 pound title either. Depending where in America he was born he probably would of had a hometown trainer and maybe never had been Roach. A lot of stuff would of been different.

But, where he is rank has nothing to do cuz he is Asian. It has all to do cuz of his accomplishment. I mean if being Asian is the selling point. Then Cerefino Garcia would be in the HOF(which he deserves to be) for being the only Asian MW champ.
I agree that a lot of early stuff wouldve been changed. As far as his multiple weight classes.

But we cant be naive. Its the 2000's. Pacquiao's image is heavily depended on where hes from. Heavily. If he was just some other American athlete his "accomplishments" would hardly be as blown out of proportion as they are now.

Its just too many variables to take into play. Maybe instead of all those Mexicans he would been healthy enough to fight Too Sharp or Tim Austin. His career wouldve been a lot different.

His earky career wouldve been different for sure. He wouldve been fighting American fighters. His style would be different...etc. His coach would be different. Too many things would be different.
