Loma- 5ft7, talented boxer/athlete since childhood
Pacquiao- 5ft5, admits having “no talent” as a boxer

Loma-Textbook skills, defense, footwork, accuracy, ring IQ, etc.
Pacquiao- Crude slugger for most of his career, went through bloody wars and got hit/rocked often.

And Yet......

Pacquiao manages to go through division after division, win countless fights as an underdog, beat bigger fighters and legends, give us performances of a lifetime, and last year at age 40 beat a young lion in spectacular fashion.

Loma however seems to have hit his ceiling at 135lbs. Loses to a 23 year old with 15 fights after giving away the first 6 rounds.


So my question is: What does Manny Pacquiao have, that Lomachenko doesn't?
A win over Ricky Hatton.
