Do you like this story?
Some people have already made theories that Pacquiao IS the Muhammad Ali of this generation. Surely, he has already secured his spot among the all-time greats (must have made his mark during his twin Hatton/Dela Hoya wins) but for him to be placed right under THE Ali is something else.
As a Filipino, I might be biased but I think he ranks among the top 4 boxers of all time: Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Sugar Ray Leonard and Manny Pacquiao. Such an esteemed grouping. Any violent reactions are welcome.
Meanwhile, I gathered here different thoughts from different people regarding Manny Pacquiao:
-Gary A. Poole, author of "PacMan"
I can’t think of any other person in the world who has ever been so adored by his people.
-Bob Simon, CBS Correspondent
It was awe-inspiring. I was so touched by what he was doing...there’s never been anyone like this kid and there probably never will be.
-Bob Arum, Pacquiao's publicist
Manny Pacquiao was once again masterful, beating Antonio Margarito so frightfully that Margarito’s face looked as it had been pounded repeatedly by a club.
-Kevin Iole, Yahoo! Sports Correspondent
Manny is the best fighter in the world, He is just too fast—very, very quick.
-Robert Garcia, Margarito's trainer
There was no way I was gong to quit. I’m a Mexican, we fight until the end.
I can’t believe that I beat someone this big and this strong. It’s hard. I really do my best to win the fight.
