comparing the hatton fight, hatton was actually pushing floyd into the ropes whereas pac at one time did stand hatton on the middle and actually pushed the stronger hatton. pac was actually mixing and standing it up with big WW like margo and clottey.

also speedwise could be a tie but pac is bit faster since he is a naturally smaller man. floyd was impressively fast against mosley but not against ortiz.

Pac looks and move like a retard on the court. Never seen such bad dribble and shooting form. I vote Floyd

The same could be said with Mosley. Floyd was pushing Mosley around the ring but whenever Mosley clinched Manny he did it easy. Mosley even said Manny isn't a physically strong fighter but he punches hard. Also Floyd runs his miles in 6 min. Manny runs his anywhere between 6:30 to 6:42. Also Floyd has better reflexes and from 130-140 Floyd handspeed was def faster. Floyd is a better athlete. The funny thing is Floyds handspeed didn't impress me when he fought Mosley. I though he had faster hands against Ortiz.

Wow Pac has horrendous style in basketball, more one handed than his early boxing career. floyd is a decent basketball player nothing special but pac is awful, he wouldn't make my highschool team!!

the fact, that you have thousands of posts of absolute garbage, makes you not matter. you absolute moron. you have to have down syndrome if you dont respect Mayweather's abilities. You can hate his character, but you cannot shit on his abilities.

Mayweather is probably the better all around fighter, but if the two ever meet, I'd give Floyd only the slight edge due to the way he fought DE La Hoya! Did anyone notice that Floyd ran from Oscar for a good nine rounds and waited for Oscar to tire ( its no secret that Oscar was'nt fighting the last few rounds of his fights towards the end of his career and floyd knew this) Guess what ! Floyd can't due that with Manny, because Manny only gets stronger as the rounds go on. As a result I feel Manny has a lot more ligitamate shot at beating Mayweather by aggression and percentage of punches landed! '' RINGSIDEBOXINGSHOW.COM '' has a sneek peek of 24/7 Pacquiao Marquez! Give it a look!

mosley is a bad comparison since mosley elected to fight pac and floyd in a different way. also i did not remember floyd pushing mosley around but used his speed to attack and pull back against mosley.

also i don't know about floyd's mile time but elite boxing athletes could certainly do 6:00 in 1mile or 1.6km. i'm hardly an athlete but i can actually run 8:00/mile in my current state and would get it to 7:00 given a week or two to train.

the last time i heard pac ran, he was doing an easy pace 7:20/mile for a short 5k run and that was the beginning of his training camp for marquez. i have no doubt that pac could do 6:00/mile on his top form.

Voted Mayweather because the poll should be closer. I don't think you could toss a coin between the two.

you both are wrong about Floyd

The man you see here can run a 5-minute mile and bust out 40 pullups and 200 situps without breaking a sweat. But don't call it a workout. When Floyd Mayweather Jr. trains, it's a show.
