FLOYD MAYWEATHER was told his legacy does not match up to Manny Pacquiao’s – even if he has earned $1billion.

Despite Mayweather’s points win over Pacquiao in 2015, the richest fight in history, the argument between who has had the better career rages on.

And former champion Buddy McGirt, now a trainer, argues PacMan’s titles in eight divisions leaves him no doubt who the winner is.

He told eNews: “I’d say the eight-division champion because it’s something you will always be remembered for.

“You still got a lot of money. You don’t have a billion dollars, but you got something your kids and grandkids could remember.

“It’s a legacy, something that lives on forever.”

Pacquiao was crowned world champion on seven occasions, excluding Ring Magazine belts and lineal titles.

But Mayweather, a titelist in five divisions, surpassed Rocky Marciano’s unbeaten record to go 50-0 after he beat UFC star Conor McGregor in 2017.

The pay-per-view king pocketed an estimated $1bn throughout his career, but still Pacquiao’s campaign is favoured by Bernard Hopkins.

The fight would be the most lucrative ever to not feature Floyd Mayweather

Hopkins told Ring Magazine: “I’d rather have Manny Pacquiao’s legacy than Floyd Mayweather’s.

“Manny fought everybody. Floyd fought guys (on his own terms).

“Also, I don’t think Floyd gave two you-know-whats about how people feel whether he fought the best guys or not. It was strictly business for Floyd.”
