The most exciting boxer is...Manny Pacquiao!


If pound for pound rankings were based on determination and fight quality this guy would be on the very top. I'm still going to place him on top of my P4P list since I don't judge by skill but by how a boxer performs in the ring. Manny "PacMan" Pacquiao's fights are worth every penny and everytime he fights, I buy. I would reccommend any casual fans to buy his fights. This guy has an enormous heart which is matched only by his monstrous stamina and explosive punching power. This guy ducks nobody and is relentless during his fights. His most defining fight is the trilogy with Erik "El Terrible" Morales an equally excellent boxer. Although he lost to him in their first fight via decision, he knocked the guy out in the next two. The only problem about his style is his defense. He has too much offense but his defense lacks a lot. Though his offense makes up for it, if he learns how to defend and box, he'd be almost unstoppable. Almost everybody know this fighter, but if you want to know more you can check this website out and its forums: http://www.mannypacquiao.ph. I have my eye on him and I will be posting some news about him from time to time. More recently, he just ran for congressman in his country and lost but, I'm not worried about that since boxing is his expertise---not politics. He is currently considering possible opponents to fight some of whom are: Joan Guzman, undefeated Edwin Valero, and WBC Superfeatherweight Champion Juan Manuel Marquez. I don't consider Marco Antonio Barrera a good opponent since he already beat him via technical knockout. Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank are also having a fight for promotional rights to him. He has a hectic life outside the ring, but hopefully it will all clear up before his next fight.

Manny is at his best when he is focused on boxing. however, like other successful boxers, he has a tendency to be distracted. His failed congressional is a perfect example. For the good of Pinoy boxing and his fans, he should just concentrate on his opponent and his training.

Exactly my point, my friend. Politics is dirty and maybe business--it gets in the way of the true essence of boxing which is competition.
