In our second episode of Fantasy Dream Match, we matched two legendary boxers. One has held multiple world championships in three weight classes. The other is the only eight-division world champion in the history of boxing.
Not too long ago, we conducted a poll to find out who would win a Fantasy Dream Match between Canelo Álvarez and Manny Pacquiao.
Canelo Álvarez versus Manny Pacquiao
Canelo Álvarez is boxing’s beloved pay-per-view superstar. Also, he’s one of the sport’s main attractions. The Mexico-native holds an impressive professional record of 52 wins, 35 KOs, 2 draws, and 1 loss. He is an impressive body puncher who exploits openings in his opponents’ guards. Also, he moves out of harm’s way with head and body movements.
Canelo is an excellent counterpuncher with explosive power in both hands. Also, take one look at his resume, and you will see that he has put many prized fighters to sleep inside the squared circle. On May 6, 2014, Radio Rahim interviewed Canelo via SecondsOut about fighting Pacquiao.

During the interview, Canelo downplayed the rumored fight between him and Pacquiao. Also, he answered other questions.
Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao was named Fighter of the Decade for the 2000s. The Philippines-native holds an impressive professional record of 62 wins, 39 KOs, 7 losses, and 2 draws. Therefore, it isn’t shocking why he is in the conversation as the greatest boxer of all time. Also, not too long ago, Pacquiao defeated Keith Thurman to become the oldest boxer to win a recognized version of a world welterweight title. A few months prior, he gave a brief statement to Fight Hub TV about Canelo Álvarez.
