None of those named, none of the styles match up with neither Pac or Floyd.

I'm not really sure which would describe, will probably start looking soon though to see, never thought about it really.

I don't think those are similar at all. Actually I don't see a stylistic similarity with any of them. In terms of the magnitude I would say Leonard-Duran 1.

Well, I picked Duran-Leornard I. Drinking all day and watching fights makes you get ideas. Even if they are not well thought out.

They had two way exchanges on the inside for the Leonard-Duran fights. manny can't fight on the inside at all.

Hearns-DUran, wtf?

Floyd's defense is too great to be Taylor and manny can't swarm like Chavez.

My choice is Hopkins-Trinidad. An American veteran beats down a beloved and overrated foreigner that is considered a hero to his countrymen. Tito was moving up in weight and wrecking people. Hopkins was established at the weight class. Floyd makes fun of filipinos and is called "racist", Bernard tosses the PR flag onto the ground.

I've been drinkin' all day and make weird comparisons. Don't hold it against me. Even if I've been drinking after watching those particular Duran fights and I can honestly say was he outclassed and sucked as far as winning his big fights outside of lightweight.

Hard to say, because Pacquiao's style is very unique. As Nacho Beristain said, "a style of Boxing that is not very clear."

This comparison is awful and quite racist.

Pacquiao is the FASTER fighter. He should be billed as the speedster in all of your scenarios.
