Pacquaio did.

Regardless of the official result churned out in an Aussie kitchen.
Watch the fights. If you can't see the difference between how Crawford fared against Horn and how Pacquiao did you need your eyes checked. :conf

I never commented on the differences between the two fights.

I just pointed out that Pacquio beat Horn.

And in many cases, the degree of beating of a common opponent doesn't tell us much about how a fight will go.

Foreman beat Frazier much worse than Ali did, but that didn't help him in Zaire.

Pac destroyed both Hatton and Cotto much worse than Floyd did, yet Floyd beat Pac.

There are lots off other examples.

In his prime, Pac beats Crawford and Spence on the same night, without breaking much of a sweat.

At this point, I would make him a slight underdog to both of the younger Americans.

You quoted my post where I drew attention to how different Pacquiao and Crawford fared against Horn and cast doubt on it. I have repeated it again so there are no misunderstandings :

"He sure beat Horn in style. Pacquiao didn't".

Whether you think Pacquiao beat Horn or not, he didn't do it in style like Crawford did. End of story.

Exactly.

Your point was that...because Crawford beat Horn worse than Pac did, we could infer from that that Crawford was better.

I gave you examples that refuted your point.

My point was Crawford was better against Horn than Pacquiao was. Nothing more nothing less.

Pacquiao is with Al Haymon? The fight will never happen it will be Crawford vs Brook with the excuse Pac rejected it

Slight underdog?

I would put Pac as a big underdog with Spence and Crawford as overwhelming favourites.

Whatever the case may be prime for prime. It's 2020 now. Pac isn't coming close to beating Spence or Crawford in my eyes

I might have agreed with that assessment before pac defeated Thurman.

Both Crawford and Spence would be favoured to beat Pac....Porter would be a 50-50.

I think Pac beats all the rest of the 147 crew.

That said, by the time 'the plague' passes, Pac will be 42 or close, and he can't stay at the top forever.

I get ya

Biggest thing for me though, like you mentioned, is Pac's age.
Beating Thurman was a brillant win for him. But that kind of performance isn't going to be in him much longer.

I can't see anything but father time finally grabbing a hold of Pac if he steps in against Crawford or Spence

Lets hope it can finally get done!
Pacs had his itme in the sun. Pass the torch, get Crawford a big name win so we can finally get Crawfrod VS Spence and a WBO, WBA, IBF, WBC unification!!

Speaking of the unification. If it happens and Crawford wins. 4 belt champ in 2 divisions.. that shit is EPIC!
It will happen when they will be about 50 years old.
