Some people can multitask... others can't. Now time to wait for people to say Pacquiao uses PED's for that too.

all this makes perfect sense no doubt.... my arguement is manny...he has jump around in weight....u saying if he drops down a division he gets 2nd rd ko'd by a no name bum like tarver..... why didn't tarver ko roy there first fight? roy biggest prob was roy's ego.....

LMFAO! I seen some many people say "and his life [or whatever] just did a complete 360" when they meant to say 180.

RJJ just got older and lost his athletic ability, can't box forever you know. Although I think that is what RJJ is trying to do I guess.

Both arguably the best athletes ever seen?

I don't know what world you live, but Manny isn't anything close to being arguably the best athlete boxing has ever seen. Why do people insist on thinking, saying and believing such absurd notions?

First he's the greatest fighter ever, after beating a couple of HOFers, next he's the hardest puncher ever, next he has the best footwork, now he's the best athlete boxing has ever seen?

Roy Jones I can understand, but Manny? There are a lot of much, much greater athletes than Pac in boxing. He's a better fighter, but he isn't close to being anywhere near the best athlete. He's not even nearly the best athlete of his era.

When will the madness stop?

Anyway, Jones (and this is so well documented it has become boring) was 35 and had to lose about 20 pounds of muscle. It goes without saying that it would affect you. He then had to fight an opponent who was clearly a bad style match up for him on top of that.

Let's wait until Manny is 35 before we start talking about what he's done that Jones couldn't. He's still in his prime and he's not having to lose weight like Jones. I doubt we're going to see Pac go from 147 back down to 126 any time soon. But, if he was 35 years old and went all the way back down to one of the lower weights like 126, 130, 135 then we'd probably see something very similar to what happened to Jones Jr, or what happened to Oscar against Pac, and Morales against Pac etc. That kills you.

Well it should be pretty obvious to anyone with a half a brain that he's clearly on something. Or at least has been at some point.

There are a lot of differences too tho, starting with training and conditioning. Throw in the fact that RJJ fights at the higher weight, taking harder punches. Plus Manny has a chin!
