Consistency

How can a fighter who has won world titles in eight divisions, who began his career as a 108-pounder and has carried the same ability to give and receive punishment up to 147 pounds be considered anything but the king of consistency? Although we think of Pacquiao as being explosive and dynamic, he also deserves credit for his steady reliability. Pacquiao has remained a phenomenon over the years and across divisions, while Rios has recently been troubled by weight issues and uneven results.


Advantage: Pacquiao
