canelo alvarez is 41-0, does that mean he's better too? nope. At 21 yrs. old he is 3 wins away from tying floyds record. People don't know this because he doesn't go around bragging about his 0 every fight. and yes, you're right when you say mayweather has more to lose in this fight because that 0 on his record is the ONLY thing even keeping him relevant to manny pacquiao.
i would agree that the zero losses on his record isnt that important if you're trying to assess dude's skill, but to say floyd mayweather is not one of the best boxers this generation is bugged. he's not ducking the fight with pacquiao either. he just doesnt care to have it happen, he's set where he is...its like it was said before, why compromise?
anyone who follows the sport can see he's a technical genius, which is why he's more than relevant to pacquiao...he's not flashy, but when it comes to defense and countering, there is no better fighter in the sport. manny pacquiao is a very offensive fighter, and looking back at his last fight with marquez, theres a specific kind of fighter that gives him the most trouble. that would be a counter puncher. and who's the best in the league at counterpunching?
they're both great fighters, and if they were to meet in a fight, theres no saying who would win. i put my money on money may though
