Pacquiao has had the most exciting fights in this decade. Hands down. Without him, Boxing was slowly dying.
Why? because it was boring. We had Hopkins & Mayweather as headliners and their fights were boring. Sure they were great champions however, most fans would rather watch a Dela Hoya fight or MMA fight instead because it was just more exciting. Dela Hoya did lose to both boring fighters but because his style and the brawler that he is made people want to watch him. Same with Pacquiao or Ricky Hatton. Everyone is saying Hatton should retire, He should "NOT". Hatton is good for boxing. Keep things in perspective. As a boxing fan, who would you watch? Mayweather or a Hatton fight. I think most would say, Hatton. His skills may not be as good as Mayweather, but Hatton brings excitement. Whether he gets knocked out or he knocks his opponent out. Which ever the case, it's exciting just like MMA. Humans like the brutality plain and simple. Heck, we all know that boxing was dying prior to all of Pacquaio's fight. If you don't believe it, check with your cable company for confirmation. There's also 60 minutes coming up with an interview with UFC's Dan White.

The pedigree is the same. Like father like son, loud mouths... Mayweather killed boxing with his boring fights. MMA took advantage of it. Boxing best boring fighters versus MMA's exciting and brutal fights. What you going to watch? The stick and move is out (Mayweather took it to another degre by his running and running style, he is not Sugar Ray or Ali). When the Pac-man retires, boxing will be dead for sure. Boxing need more like him. Or change the scoring system where you deduct points for running like Chuck Norris world combat league. Even his least talented fighters are more exciting then Mayweather. Mayweather, do boxing a favor and stay home. Let Marquez fight the Pac-man again.

FLOYD MAYWEATHER SHOULD STAY RETIRED. HE KILLED BOXING WITH HIS BORING "DANCE WITH THE STARS" TYPE OF FIGHTING. HE IS ONE BIG REASON WHY, MMA BECAME SO POPULAR. BOXING DOES NOT NEED HIM. BOXING NEED MORE, EUROPEAN STYLE FIGHTERS WHO ARE NOW KICKING THE KICKING ALL THE AMERICAN FIGHTERS ASS. SURE HE WILL WIN AGAINST MARQUEZ. OF COURSE BY POINTS AND RUNNING. BOXING SHOULD TAKE A NOTE FROM CHUCK NORRIS WORLD COMBAT LEAGUE WHERE POINTS GET DEDUCTED FOR RUNNING. PACQUIAO CREATED THE NEEDED STIR WITH HIS EXCITING STYLE THAT BASICALLY SAVED BOXING. BUT WITH MAYWEATHER BACK, HE WILL RUIN BOXING AND IT WILL DIE. MAYWEATHER STILL HAVEN'T ANSWERED LARRY MERCHANT'S QUESTION, WHY IS HE SO BORING? MAYWEATHER, STAY
