Pacquiao would land roughly the same amount as everybody else: 20% or less.

JMM and Pacquiao are the same size. Now watch JMM vs Mayweather and look at the size disparity, and tell me again how Pacquiao would be able to close distance without eating right hands. Mayweather can literally just lean back behind his shoulder and Pacquiao would barely have the arm length to touch him.

He won't close distance without eating a right hand. The guy has almost ZERO chance, which is a puncher's chance. He'd have to catch Mayweather with the perfect punch and finish him: HIGHLY UNLIKELY given Mayweather's defensive ability and world class chin.
