Re: Question about Floyd and Pac styles of fighting
I'm a big instigator of poking fun at PEDcquiao. But, let's face facts here. Many thought it would be an easy task to beat Manny and it rarely happens. Just like Tyson said (I think) once you get hit the fight plan goes out of the window.
Still, I think Floyd is basically a bigger, faster and more defensive fighter than JMM. Floyd is not going to get hit like JMM did in the 5th and 6th. And that's not a knock on JMM, he is after all almost FORTY. Manny becomes more aggressive after getting hit and Floyd's pot shots will frustrate Manny to no end. Manny will predictably force the fight and Floyd will counter or check hook him just like he did against Hatton.
Floyd is just the wrong style for Manny. Manny has a puncher's chance but my advice is to not bet against Floyd on this one. You will not get good odds anyway. Floyd may, at best, be a 3:2 favorite. Be careful what you wish for Pac fans.
