I would say Devon Alexander but his last performance has be questioning his ability.
I also think that andre ward would give him problems also
Not really. For a typical boxer, yeah.

But what is unique about Manny Pacquiao is that he has matured leaps and bounds since then. It is unprecedented how much he has taken his skills and styles into higher levels.

Back then, Pacquiao was still strictly a one-two puncher...relatively a one-dimensional fighter. Now he has lateral movements, developed the usage of the RIGHT HOOK, RIGHT JAB and the awesome combinations from seemingly odd angles.

Pacquiao has also developed a more conditioned and primed body thanks to the physical regimens and training by Ariza to specifically cater to how Freddie Coach wanted to do for their specific opponent.

Just like the this Margarito fight, Freddie Roach have centered on Pacquiao's lateral movements, ringmanship and the IN-and-OUT movements and combinations to deter the oncoming, aggression and relatively static Margarito.

That is a wide contrast from the Pacquiao who were challenged to the utmost by Marquez.

With these new attributes, new adaptable style, new body basically...and new strength, the "blueprint" would hardly be anything but a shadow of Pacquiao's former one-dimensional self.
