Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao fans are often at odds on the message boards, with each crew maintaining that their guy has the better resume, and standing as an all-time great. It isn't often that they can find common ground, but author Thomas Hauser has given members of Team Floyd and Team Manny cause to commiserate together. Hauser put together a fantasy welterweight tournament, and asked 28 experts to weigh in on who would beat who if they all faced off.

Roberto Duran, Emile Griffith, Thomas Hearns, Sugar Ray Leonard, Mayweather, Pacquiao, Aaron Pryor, and Sugar Ray Robinson were in the mix. Sugar Ray Robinson emerged as the top welterweight of all time. Mayweather ranked No. 5 all time, while Pacquiao finished in last place.

NYFightblog readers, how do you see it? Should Mayweather be higher on the list? Did Pacquiao get dissed?
