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.
Yea Floyd was actually pushing Mosley around the ring. When Mosley would try to hold Floyd(something he was doing all night) Floyd was easily pushing him out of the way. Even Manny Steward said Floyd is more physically stronger than Mosley.

When I read about Manny doing 6:30 to 6:42 miles it was close to the Cotto fight. Then I remember Floyd running and saying he did a mile in 6 flat. Kelly Pav said he does his miles around the same speed as Manny does. Manny's feet are probably quicker but he doesn't run faster. Even if you watch Floyd play basketball he looks pretty damn fast on the court.

I just think that Floyd is a better athlete because in his prime he was faster(it can be debated now). He has better reflexes. From Mosley's point of view he is physically stronger. Also from what I've read he runs his miles faster than Manny.

i'm not actually wrong. my point is elite boxing athletes could do 6:00 mins a mile. so if floyd can do it in 5 then i'm still correct. also please note that you can actually sustain a faster pace in a shorter distance. so if pacquiao can do a sustained 6:00/mile pace for 3 miles, then i had no doubt that he could also do 5 in a mile.

i searched and got to a running forum where a guy knows pac's pacemate brian livingston and said that pac can do a 6mins/mile pace on times that he feels like it and note that it is for the whole 3 miles or maybe even more.

Brian's my teammate, he actually just got back from Philippines about 3 weeks ago....pretty much spot on, all these stories about pacquiao seem to just get blindly handed from one "mainstream" sportswriter to the next....albeit with zero fact (or reality) checking. Brian did say that manny likes to finish with a little 200-300m kick at the end of his runs, but these runs are 20-25min tops on most days, and usually start close to 8min pace, and finish not much faster than 7flat on a good day. that said, he says there have been the odd occasion where pacman likes to hit 6min pace for the whole run, but that's few and far between.

I think Floyd's athleticism works better in boxing. But Pac seems like he could transfer better into other sports.

Is Floyd more black than Pac is Filipino?
No, clearly the next thread should be about who's better at basketball!

That game involves running. It is an unfair competition.

I agree with you. I didn't say yall were entirely wrong

I know there's a difference between one 5 minute mile and 7 6 minute miles

condition - pacquiao

foot speed - equal

hand speed - mayweather (a young prime one)

upper body movemant - mayweather

overall - pacquiao (why? because his condition is out of this world, he punches with no end and that full 12 rds and even after the fight doesnt look much exhausted. the hand and foot speed are both barely equal, just favor mayweather a lil bit, because in his prime mayweather was a tick faster than pacquiao.)
