Pacquiao Cements Legacy As A True All-Time Great

Roach- Pacquiao

Freddie Roach has turned Manny Pacquiao into the 1st true boxing legend of the 21st century

Floyd who?   Money what?  Apparently there is no stopping Manny Pacquiao.  Manny Pacquiao answered everyone’s question regarding who in fact is the best boxer in the world.  By conquering Miguel Cotto in savage fashion, Pacquiao has once again eliminated Floyd Mayweather Jr. out of the conversation.  The word “great” is thrown around too often in sports and it shouldn’t even be used when describing Manny Pacquiao.  Pacquiao is far better than “great”. Pacquiao is an angel of destruction; a picture of poetic violence.  With his record-setting 7th world title in 7 different divisions, he is now immortal.  With Manny Pacquiao there is no reason for us to revisit the past when looking for the exceptional few that we look to reincarnate.  Pacquiao is now among the legends who define the sport through the ages.  Like our fathers spoke of “Sugar” Ray Robinson and Rocky Marciano, we will tell tales of the magnificent Manny Pacquiao who became boxing’s flagship when it needed him most, and took our breath away in doing so.
