    2000s: Manny Pacquiao – Sorry Floyd but you need to fight the best to be the best. Runner up: Floyd Mayweather.

    Too true

    although pacquiao probably deserved this so called fighter of the decade award, most knowledgeable boxing fans will submit that floyd jr. IS the better boxer with the unblemished record but because floyd jr. took two years off, the logical choice would be pacquiao.

    Only because Hopkins is NATURALLY BIGGER than Tito, and so is Floyd is NATURALLY BIGGER than Pacquiao. Otherwise it's a different story. Floyds biggest wins in 2000-2009 are against ODLH(UD) and Hatton(Late kayo), Manny stopped both of these guys considering the size difference!!!
    Manny achieved FEATS, went against the ODDS for a man his size and so called one dimensionality!!!

    Floyd became increasingly lackadaisical when it came to fighting the best in his weightclasses towards the second half of the past decade. Manny did too much, too quickly and clearly shot above Floyd as the decade came to a close. Maybe Floyd has the better all round skills (maybe), but Pac has been fighting everyone and doing it in more spectacular style. There is the argument that Hatton and DLH were Floyd leftovers, but Manny had the balls to fight Hatton at 140 and went up two weight classes to fight DLH. It was Oscar that was pursuing that fight let's not forget, so not totally a case of Pac trying to drain everyone. There was no need for the Cotto weight penalty, mind. Catchweights are never cool, but Cotto shouldn't have agreed.

    You've got to be kidding me. Has Manny arguably had a better last few years than Floyd? Yes. But its called FIGHTER OF THE DECADE. Floyd far and above has been the best fighter of this decade.

    this achievement is based on what they have accomplished. its like having a phyiscal therapist who graduated from the philippines who does not have the quarter of a million dollar education of a pt grad out of the usa but still has helped more patients walk and live a better life.

    I'm just glad they don't do a top 5 for each decade as you know they'd find a way to justify including Nonito Donaire on that list.

    Probably Bute too

    Hehe, you really don't like Bute to such a high degree, I really wonder why though.

    Floyd is a better boxer than Manny but when it comes to who defied the odds, took the bigger challenges and fought for the fans, not just himself, Manny is easily ousting Floyd there.

    I'm not totally sold on that really. I mean can u name a single oponent of Manny's that Floyd wouldn't be an overwhelming favourite to win not just the fight, but cirtually every round?

    Manny hasn no names on his resume that anyone would expect Floyd to trip up against.

    If Floyd had fought all of Manny's opponents its hard to argue against him being 56-0 now.

    I don't doubt that Floyd could beat all the opponents that Manny has beaten. The point of my statement is that Manny was doubted to win some of those fights, more so than Floyd has been in his fights. Manny fought guys who no one ever imagined him sharing a ring with. Floyd has done the same, just not of the same magnitude as Manny, IMO.

    Good point but I also think that at this point Manny could very well have beaten every single opponent PBF has fought his whole career. Overall if Mosely is Floyds best guy in his resume I might say Manny has both Cotto and Clottey who are also bullstrong warriors themselves. I also consider the fact that Manny is the first person to have 7 championships in 7 differents weightclasses and also the only boxer to have 4 lineal world titles.
