He can but in order to do so, we must move up in weight and fight/beat bigger man that has major /lineal championship belt.  Pacquiao's record is 7 belt in 7 different weight classes.  Mayweather has 6 belts in 5 different weight classes.  So in order to duplicate or beat Pacquaio's record, we must  beat a fighter with major/lineal championship belt in 2 more different weight classes.

But I think it will be hard for him to do this, he is so scared of loosing that undefeated record that he will not risk fighting bigger guys in light middleweight or middleweight division.

You gave a very comprehensive view of the issue
ERGO mayweather is not as daring as PACMAN
It pays to experiment, look at PACQUIAO he is now in the history of boxing
I just hope Money would try his Boxing prowess in different divisions

I don't think Floyd will ever have 7 belts in different weight classes. Floyd won't move up to 160, which is where he'd have to go to win another title. But I don't think it matters too much, as far as legacy is concerned. It will ultimately come down to who wins the fight between Floyd and Manny and that will decide who has the better legacy, not who won more belts or who won more fights or who had more KOs.

if we are talking about legacy, definitely we will remember someone who has created a record, created a benchmark and was well respected by his peers.
take note that when everything has been said and done and people has reached their end, the future will give more emphasis on the why's and the how's rather than the what's and the where's
why- did an athlete did not dare explore or why did this boxer did not do this, then they will ask how did that athlete do it?
NOT WHERE DID THIS ATHLETE CAME FROM OR WHAT DID THAT BOXER DO
Maybe just maybe, when mayweather learned the ways of a true gentleman and what is the real essence of sportsmanship only THEN my respect will be on him

nahhh.... I don't think he can. Not just to mention real fighter should use thier fist and heart in a fight not to throw allegations to another fighter. Floyd thinks manny is using steroids just because he rules in the ring... think again...

Floyd said that about Manny?

No, he didn't. His father said that. You know, the same father that Floyd won't train with and the same father that Floyd won't communicate with? You know, the same father that Floyd does not associate with to the extent that he's not in Floyd's corner and his uncle is there instead?

Don't put words in Floyd's mouth. He never said Pac was on 'roids. If he did, go find the quote and post a link to it here. His dad said it, not him.

The point is irrelevant whether or not if Floyd Mayweather can duplicate Manny Pacquiao's achievemnets, for unto each man his own. What Emmanuel Pacquiao has accomplished in winning seven titles in as many divisons will in all likelihood stand for eternity, or close to it. One has to look at their careers in its entirety to fully appreciate what both fighters have achieved. Manny started out his pro career at Flyweight in which he won his first World title that he lost on the scale as he had outgrown the division, but this was a young Pacquiao who was still very much a kid. Anyone involved in boxing will tell you how different a boy's body grows to that of a man. Pacquiao was developing into a man and as such his body grew as he aged, but similtaneously he was winning and beating good fighters as he climbed the divisions, yet all along still maturing in body. 
Anyone remember Henry Armstrong and his record of three World titles similtaneously held in as many divisions? This was completely mind-blowing to say the least...Featherweight, Lightweight and Welterweight Champion of the World AND there were no junior weight classes back in those days. In essence that means that 'Homocide Hank' or 'The Human Buzz Saw' as Armstrong was commonly known, had moved five weight divisions in a matter of months to accomplish this feat. The point I guess I am trying to make is that some guys are just built that way or for lack of a better term, freaks of nature, period!  Pacquiao happens to be one of those guys.
Floyd on the other hand does not appear to have the same physical qualities that would allow him to move that high up in weight and retain the strengths he has at Welterwight ot Lightweight for that matter. Another factor to be considered is that the Junior Middleweights and Middleweight fighters are huge compared to their predecessors. Look at someone like Kelly Pavlik or Bernard Hopkins for example compared to Mayweather. These guys literally tower over him and its (in my mind) inconceivable that Mayweather would come out of those fights victorious. So as I said earlier on "unto each man his own" and I see no need for Floyd to try emulating Manny's accomplishments. He is his own man and should do what is in his best interests...

Thats very well said sir! if only Mayweather could have your mind  that would be great.
Respect is only given to those who deserves it and as we all know respect is something earned not imposed.....
You're right ,Money is his own man and he has to realize that, it would be sad that his accomplishments are not noticed because of his loose tongue
To watch this two great fighters is an honor.... that once in our life a magnificent undefeated champ faces an extra ordinary athlete
Lets cherish the time and anticipate the hype

CAN MAYWEATHER DUPLICATE PACMANS 7 BELT RECORD???  it's easier  to say... than done.
Does Floyd wanted to? ...  enough with this commendations.  
In my opinion, Floyd should fight Manny.
And if this fight happens, a higher respect and honor for the one who will emerged victorious.

I believe Floyd can.... but he's gonna have to step his game up though.... " Big Time!" 

Personally thought in my opinion, i think Pac-man might get in this floyds Ass though.

I dont want floyd to lose... " But at the same time " .... I can't really hate on Pac-Man. I mean shit everybody they put in Pac-Mans face gets "Literally Raped"  by Beautifully put together combinations. Man, i Swear to you that i've never seen a fighter manage to connect so many combinations together like pac-man except  "Sugar Shane Mosley"

I gurantee you that  "Shane Mosley" will Rape pac-man.... that's why after pacman fought Cotto he said he wouldn't step up a class cause he knows whussup? but if he defeats Floyd i think he will run away and Quit that's unless he fights mosley. But i dont  think he'll fight mosley.   Mosley is Waaaaaaaaaay too much of a " Devilish Beast " in the Ring for this  "New born angel "

it would be like watching a pit bull eat a baby.... Lol

but we are talking about Floyd and Pac ..... i think floyd can and cant do it.... it's a Wild card.

Although what you said is true..i feel it is good now that floyd jr and sr are now in good talking terms...they both seem to wake up out of the box of hate that they had for one another. it can only help now that floyd sr. is in his corner with roger as head trainer and floyd sr. as an advisor in his camp he has the both of best worlds concerning his offensive game also with his defensive game. Floyd could be even more dangerous.
