well at the time of this fight (floyd's 6th) manny was 15-1 despite being a few years younger.

too bad manny didn't have an amateur background to learn his craft before turning pro.

Torrecampo had Manny's number, amatuer pedigree or not

21 year old Floyd >>>21 year old Manny

This is what i have a problem with, i agree with you when you say this, but if thats the case, why do we have to awknowledge that pac "came up" from 106lbs, if those fights at this weights didint mean much and his body didint mature. Pacs "adult" weight seems to been 122. So would you say that we shouldnt count the legitimacy of the wins prior to that, in which case wed have to factor in the losses?

fine can we factor in floyd's losses in the ams too? he was about the same age.

pacquiao turned pro at what 15? barely 16?

a person's resume at the age is viewed probably the same way as hopkins' and foreman's resume is viewed at the end of their careers.

losses for foreman and hopkins are dismissed due to them being past their prime while every win and accomplishment is magnified because they won at such an old age and clearly past their prime.

the same holds true for guys at the beginning of their career. pac's losses are minimized because he was a teenager but winning a belt at 19-20 yrs. old with no amateur background is somewhat magnified.

let me ask you this.....if floyd loss one of his pro fights in his teens would you hold it against him? no because he was a kid. get it?



i don't even know why that moron brought it up anyway. this thread has nothing to do with manny.
