Either Canelo, Mayweather, Pac

My pic is Floyd. 915 million in earned money. Mandatory PED testing, killer contract with Showtime, his crossover fight with Conor was genius, his schooling of Pac, his dismantling of Canelo, and he avoided the #metoo movement. GOAT!

Has to be Floyd. Nobody's resume speaks like his does. Only Manny's and Canelo's are close, AND Floyd beat both of them convincingly.

Should be a no brainer, but we know how the boxing media works.

They will give it to either Manny or Canelo maybe an argument for Lomachenko.

Agreed.  It's got to be Floyd, even though he'd fit better into 2005-2015 decade.

Well since you put it that way.... 2010-2019 alone... Youve got to go with Manny.  But, it's tough putting it into consistent 10 year blocks.  If you get hot mid-decade and go 10 years strong then you have partial resumes spanning both decades.  It should be Floyd for this very reason.  But abiding strictly to the parameter of 2010-2019, then there's no better resume than Pacquiao.

Then again Canelo's resume is pretty impressive too.  Either Nelo, Manny or Floyd.  Can't really go wrong with any of them.

It's gotta be Floyd. Didn't Manny get it last decade? The thing is, the only 2 you could consider outside of Floyd were beaten by Floyd...and the fights weren't close.

 

This decade includes:

Mosley

Cotto

Canelo

Maidana x2

Pacquiao 

 

Not to mention how he revolutionized the sport in terms of not only making money but doing so with very little sponsorship and no promoter. 

 

Manny lost 4 times in the decade including being on the wrong end of one of the greatest KO's in boxing history. Granted he got robbed vs Horn but I think Marquez should have won the 3rd fight. Manny shouldn't even be ahead of Canelo if we're being honest.

Marquez got no respect from the judges, not mad at all that he ran away with the ko. Fighting Manny was like fighting canelo, if it's not a wide clear-cut blowout you weren't getting your hand rasied.

Its aight because a lot of Pacs big wins came before 2010, and actually probably the same for Mayweather.

 

Am going with...Wladimir Klitschko

 

I mean look at the dudes resume from 2010 till 2017. Its the who's who of Heavyweights which he fucked up. Sure it wasn't pretty but they didn't go 12 rounds and sure he lost to Fury and Joshua. But that Joshua fight was insane.
