I think Floyd Mayweather Jr. is probably the most hated boxing champion in the history of the sport.

I used to watch all of Manny Pacquiao's fights, big fan, but now he is just hanging on and my interest in the sport isn't where it once was.

Overall, the most feared boxer in history. In his prime, the most dominant.

I'd love to get in the ring with him and have him simply block all of my punches without attempting any strikes. Even if I had the stamina to last 12 rounds, he'd still win the decision from all 3 judges based upon the fact i couldn't land a single punch. Such a defensive specialist with lightning quick hands.

I’m not a fan of Mayweather. He does more running, than boxing. He hasn’t fought anyone worth watching.

I agree 100%, plus he has to many wins that should have bean looses, but the judges decide he won. Payed out judges.

I agree, he waited to fight Pacquiao until he was past his prime. He runs and moves his head side to side.

There's always the case of casual boxing fans versus true boxing fans.

To casual fans, they may feel that Pacquiao is a better boxer than Mayweather. On the other hand, true boxing fans may feel that although Pacquiao is phenomenal, they wouldn't be afraid to admit that Mayweather is possibly the greatest technical (no knockout) boxer in the history of the sport.

Pacquiao's fighting style is more fun to watch, while Mayweather is only fun for those who have an above average understanding of boxing intricacies. How many people were foolish to think that McGregor had the slightest bit of chance to win against Mayweather in a boxing match?

I watched Pacquiao vs Broner live at the MGM Grand Arena this past weekend, and thought both sides put up a very good and interesting fight. When I flew home the next day, a number of friends and family members were telling me that the fight was boring to watch. It made me wonder which fight they were watching, because it certainly didn't feel boring from a true boxing perspective.

With that said, 2018 was an excellent year for boxing, and I'm definitely looking forward to another year of great fights. Maybe the fans will see Mayweather/Pacquiao II or GGG/Canelo III in 2019...

tough to judge pac man and money mayweather without their having fought at their prime. i suspect manny at his prime coulda beat mayweather. mayweather may be a jerk but he can fight and id disagree that he won several fights that he shoulda lost. then again, boxing's major downfall is that its truly a crooked sport. countless times big matches have been fixed which is a shame because it has way more drama than ufc.
