Pacquiao's record is far more impressive at the height of his career which, if not mistaken, has more longevity than Ali's. Pacquiao has 62 wins vs Ali's 56 wins.

Again, nothing against Muhammad Ali. Just stating facts.
He is described as the greatest because his combination of ring skills and publicity methods made him the most famous in the world, and gave boxing a tremendous boost at the time. He wasn’t by any means the greatest in the ring, though he was highly unusual and effective for a heavyweight with his mobility, hand speed, and etc. He did more for boxing than anyone in the modern era, making the sport more appealing and acceptable to people who otherwise would not have liked it.

Man! No doubt! Muhammad Ali was a legend during his time. He "Fluttered like a butterfly; stung like a bee." He made the fiercest of his time seem amateurish - having flashbacks of "The Rumble in the Jungle" in Zaire which I saw as a kid on regular TV. He took it to George Foreman and shocked the world! He took on Joe Frazier in "The Thrilla' in Manila" which I also watched on free TV. He was a legend in his time.

But please. This is different time and era, filled with great Champions who deserve the recognition of being The Greatest Of All Time; Manny Pacquiao being one of them.

Do you agree?

Rumor has it that Manny Pacquiao is considering challenging the winner of Anthony Joshua/Andy Ruiz - 3
