Floyd will clearly connect with Pacquiao and perhaps get a decision, KO is always possible as 1 punch is all it takes but less likely based on what we know. Pacquiao would likewise give Floyd plenty of problems also though for reasons mentioned above
I agree with this, Floyd will not take the risks JMM was taking in staying a little more flat footed and putting more power into his shots
