Had an impressive run moving up the weight classes with spectacular fights against Hatton and Cotto.

As well as capturing 7 titles in seven weight divisions.

Who has done more than Pacquiao in the decade?
I dont like that he got screwed but thats life. I didnt like te fact that Marquez got screwed and ARUM came back with this is a business. I think all fighters deserve to get the correct decision in there fights especially when you see how hard they train and the sacrifices they make. I feel more sorry for Marqez because in the last two fights with Pac he deserved to get the Nod and can you think of the financial ramifications that couldve made in his life? Pacquaio beat Bradley in my book but in the last decade Pac hasnt accomplished that much to me. Beating older fighters past tere prime like Morrales and Barrera is nothing. Beating Hatton whom had just been knocked out by Floyd is nothing, Beating Oscard who was weight drained is nothing. Beating Cotto who was weight drained and had just been beaten to death by Margarito is nothing. Now after that what do you have left.

Ducking Mosley after Margarito was KO'd
Ducking Yuri Foreman
Ducking Miguel Cotto at 154
Ducking Yuan Guzman
Ducking Humberto Soto
Ducking Paul Williams
Ducking Andre Berto
Ducking Edwin Valero
The list goes on. I never mention him bypassing the 140 division and chosing the two weakest opponents.

IMO This is how it shouldve been ranked for figter of the Decade. Dont let hatred crowd the obvious.
Mayweather
Hopkins
Marquez
Pacquaio
