Manny Pacquiao is a guy that I'm slowly learning about through every fight he participates in. A good friend of mine is not only a boxing fan, but I call him more of a boxing historian of sorts.
He's taught me about the ins and outs of the sport, some of the best fighters he's ever seen, what makes a boxer great and who are among the greatest names in the sport's history.
Though there are the usual names like the Muhammed Ali, George Foreman and several others.
But one name has always stood out, Manny Pacquiao.
I remember sitting down in our apartment living room watching old Pacquiao fights on the big screen and talking to me about just how good this guy was. Why he was the best fighter in boxing today and why he may put his name among the greats of all time.
For those who don't know his name or are just getting into the sport, you're a lot like me, but that's what makes learning that much more fun.
Here are the 10 reasons, according to a guy like me, that makes Manny Pacquiao the best pound-for-pound fighter. Ever.
