DID PACQUIAO BEAT ANY FIGHTER IN THEIR PRIME

black nazareneContributor IJanuary 24, 2010

Did Pacquiao beat any fighter in their prime?  We are giving credit to a fighter who has hand picked his fights to get to the top.
The same can be said about mayweather cause it doesn't matter who ever he fights there are other fighters he should of fight instead. That brings me back to pacquiao.   Let's see who is available to fight pacquiao right now before he fights joshua clottey, some of pacquiao fans says that joshua clottey is the best available welterweight available - BULLSHIT
when mayweather does the same thing you, the casual boxing FANS, say that mayweather is ducking other fighters in the same division.
how can we know that you're the best in your division when you never or you are afraid to make any type of defence in that division.
In 2008 manny pacquiao fought david diaz who was knocked out by kendall holt in the ninth round, and timothy bradley beat kendall holt so that makes bradley the true champion DID PACQUIAO DUCK TIMOTHY BRADLEY@ light welter weight. the answer is YES. Because pacquiao passed over him to fight david diaz who is a weak light welter weight when timothy was available at the same time .
Pacquiao's next fight was against Oscar De La Hoya, how does fighting these fighters make you the best in the world?  who did pacquiao beat in their PRIME? nobody.
to make matters worst de la hoya had to come down to 147 lbs to fight manny pacquiao which is sad cause when de la hoya fought mayweather he was @ 154.
Pacquiao's next fight was against Rickey hatton @ 140 which is light welter weight 
Back in the day, which casual fans know nothing about, you have to at least face the other belt holders in that division to be considered the true champion in that division.  Did Pacquiao do any of that?  NO CAUSE HE DUCKED ALL OF THEM.
HOW CAN YOU BE THE BEST WITHOUT FIGHTING THE BEST? 
BEING POPULAR DOES NOT MAKE YOU AN ALL TIME GREAT.  PLEASE!
