The more things I list, the more sources I may be asked for.

I just went with my favourites.

i dont have any problems picturing robinson being more of a defensive specialist if he were brought up in today's boxing traditions. you'd have a hard time winning rounds fighting in 1950 with a completely defensive style similar to the ones you see today.

he had the speed. he had the timing.
he just wasnt thinking defense first all of the time. many of today's american boxers think defense almost exclusively. i blame in part the amateur point system, but that's another topic for another day.

I did say the other day that I hold Greb high, but not as high as Robinson, and I believe Darcy was great and also that had he lived another ten years ALL OF YOU would rate him extremely high and I wouldnt have to defend the bloke here against some who have almost zero conception of even who he is,, he is like a phantom to most fans today,, but even with the 1% of knowledge most here have of him compared to the far greater knowledge of Greb and Robbo,,, they have to put forward an opinion of him,,, read up, study the films of him, then I may start paying more attention to his critics, of which he has more than his FAIR share..... for my part I have endeavoured to find out everything there is to know of him............ Does anyone ever take into account his incredible achievements for a fighter who had his last fight at age 20, through no fault of his own, its almost as if many american fans are relieved he died so young,, Boxing isnt just a US thing you know.

Not to mention he was giving up a good number of years to a few of them where age was concerned in addition to the extra mileage on his body.

If he fought and beat Martinez at 160 he'd have a legit claim at GOAT in my book.
he still wouldn't be the GOAT.

he wouldn't be top 10 of all-time.

Anyway, whatever happens Pacquiao will be ranked ahead of Mayweather by all serious judges, even if Mayweather ever beats him, obviously Mayweather is waiting and hoping for Pacquiao to fade to the point where Mayormaynot thinks he has a certain victory before accepting the fight, its just pure vanity stopping the fight from happening. Unless mayweather fights Pacquiao within next 12 months, I will never discuss Floyd again, there are just sooooooooooooo many other worthies worth talkin about, so until that day, I simply don't care because all the excuses and games Jr plays about the fight that'll never happen are pathetic. I will however be happy to discuss Manny Pacquiao in any other context, because he simply doesn't need the fight, but Mayweather does,.... over to you Floyd.

McGoorty were you watching events unfold between Mayweather and Pacquiao immediately after Marquez III?

Excuse after excuse and endless contradictions from the Pacquiao camp. At the very least, both camps are to blame.

Also I disagree that Mayweather needs Pacquiao. Mayweather has fought a number of good to great fighters and beaten all of them. Among those, Castillo I was the only fight that wasn't decisive.

In fact, I think there's an arguement for him being ahead of Pacquiao.
