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
Nah, people made a big deal about Oscar fighting for a record 6th title. The only difference why it get blown out of proportion after the fact is cuz a lot fo people thought he lost that fight and then got KO'd in his next fight at a catch-weight. So it was like ehh.......

But, if he would of won it would of been a big deal and he is American. So IMO it had nothing to do with Asian it has a lot to do with his accomplishments. Just my opinion.
