In my previous column, I outlined some reasons why I felt Manny Pacquiao was a winner in terms of legacy and exploits outside the ring, regardless of the outcome of his pending fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The article was blessed with a lot of good follow-up commentary.

Quite a few Mayweather fans felt jilted by the outside-of-the-ring comparisons, and implied that the discussion should stay within the ring.

Fair enough.

So, let’s pose the question to all those that truly believe Mayweather is going to destroy Pacquiao on Mar. 13.

And there are quite a few of you out there.

Where would YOU rate Pacquiao’s achievement and place in boxing history, if, contrary to your current belief, he were to defeat Floyd Mayweather Jr?

Thanks in advance for your comments.
