Manny "the unstoppable force" Pacquiao vs Floyd "the immovable object" Mayweather. Admittedly, I was not always a fan of Manny, due to Trinidad-like technique in his earlier fights. He seemed to be an incomplete fighter gifted with great speed and power. However, I have to acknowledge Pacman's growth over the past few years with wins over tough opponents. Manny has beaten many brawlers boxer/punchers. With Freddie Roach's training and Manny's ability to learn again, he became a completely different fighter. With a win over Floyd Mayweather, a pure boxer, Manny can truly be called great, a champion of styles.
