    Mexicans always pride themselves as the among the best, if not the best in professional boxing where they have been traditionally and historically very competitive in almost all weight classes, with the possible exception of the lightheavyweight, cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions. In his march from the Flyweights to the Welterweights, on his way to winning seven world championships, five of which are considered lineal, Pacman has left in his wake a number of Mexican fighters including future hall of famers as Barrera (TKO, UD), Morales ( L, UD, TKO and KO) and Marquez ( Split Draw and Split Decision) in addition to Velasquez (TKO) and Solis (TKO)and Larios (UD). He also defeated soundly Oscar de la Hoya (TKO) and David Diaz (KO) who both traced their roots to South of the Border. Never had Mexico been so thoroughly dominated by a single foreign boxer, and a Filipino at that in its traditional breadbasket divisions ( Flyweight to the Welterweight ). So they would want to produce someone who can stop the Pacquiao juggernaut. At least before, they manage to put Soto and Espadas to stop Filipino featherweight champ Luisito Espinosa who also had defeated a number of Mexican hopes like Manuel Medina, Cobrita Gonzales and Jibaro Perez in his rampage in the late 80s and the 90s.Their only hope now versus Pacquiao lies with Marquez and Antonio Margarito, with Victor Ortiz dropping out with his recent loss. But that hope may not be realized at all since Pacman may either lose to Floyd or retire, win or lose, from boxing with a decisively fight record against Mexican fighters faced. The term Mexicutioner will definitely stick with Pacquiao and it will be a source of eternal pride for Filipinos in generations to come.
