Who you calling short?! With marquee victories over the likes of Oscar De La Hoya, Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales, Miguel Cotto, Shane Mosley and Juan Manuel Márquez, sports icon Manny Pacquiao has demonstrated that speed, power, and athleticism can more than make up for his diminutive stature.

The Filipino boxing superstar will be looking to solidify his legacy when he faces pound-for-pound champ Floyd Mayweather Jr on May 2 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

At 5′ 6½″ (169cm), eight-division world champion Pacquiao gives up one and a half inches to Mayweather. Money Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs) also boasts a five-inch reach advantage to that of Pacquiao’s 67″ wingspan.

From 2008 to 2010, five out of Pacquiao’s seven wins were world title victories in five weight classes, ranging from 130 pounds to 154 pounds. While a 5′ 6½″ height would be average for a 130-pound lightweight, 154-pound super welterweights tend to come in at around 5′ 10″– making El Pacman a little man.

Welterweight and Middleweight champ Carmen Basilio, who measured in at 5′ 6½″, as well developed a style to suit his build and went on to defeat the great Sugar Ray Robinson (5’11”).

Watch the shorter man annihilate the towering Robinson here:

Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs), a three-time ‘Fighter of the Year’ and the Boxing Writers Association of America’s “Fighter of the Decade,” has sold more live tickets in the U.S. than any other fighter. He is credited with over 13 million domestic pay-per-view buys.

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao on May 2 will broadcast live by SHOWTIME PPV and HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/ 6:00 p.m. PT.
