In fact, he's been treated generously. When Mosley knocked him down (and I know, it was NOT a legit knockdown) one or two of the judges still gave Manny a 10-9.

The knockdown shouldn't have counted, but it did and Manny still got the round. I've heard of a fighter being knocked down and coming back to make it a 10-10 or a 9-9 round (by the letter of the law), but has there ever been an instance where a fighter had an official knockdown counted against him and was still awarded a 10-9 round? Against an American fighter in America, no less.

He took out Ricky Hatton, outpointed Clottey, and possibly beat Marquez three times. Not to mention everyone he beat before 140 lb's.

We know now that these wins are tainted in some way. How he beat worn, defeated fighters or guys who weren't there to win. But time will forget and he will have a monster legacy. He can only improve on it at the moment.

EDIT: I know the Hatton fight was at JWW but the point is Pac has names fighter's under his belt.
Great. Marciano had names, too.
