Default Re: PAC: I think Marquez is the better boxer(than Mayweather)

Pacquiao said while it should be a good fight, Mayweather may turn the ring into his own dancefloor.

“I think Marquez is the better boxer and counter-puncher. But the problem with Mayweather is too fast. And if he runs, then the fight becomes boring,” said Pacquiao.

Mayweather used the same tactic against Oscar dela Hoya and ran away with the victory that failed to live up to expectations.

Why did you choose the FMJ-Hatton/Pac-Hatton numbers to make your comparison? Why didnt you use the FMJ-DLH/Pac-DLH numbers to make the ****ogy?

Using your logic...it proves the exact opposite. Pac can make more money fighting Floyd than anyone else. The fight is the fight more fans want to see and for that reason 35% is bull****. Maybe against Cotto or even Mosley but against Floyd its a bigger fight. It's P4P...there would be so much more hype surrounding the fight. If were Floyd I would go 50-50 or **** it. Arum can fight Cotto or Mosley and 70% and that still be less than 50% fighting Floyd...

I think the reason he may have chosen to cite the Hatton fights was bacause the Pac-ODLH fight thought many was a joke hence many not really paid to see it.

Pac will not gain anything from lying. He is apparently saying honestly what he thinks.

And I happen to agree.

Pac is already trying to talk his way out of fighting PBF, PBF is several classes above JMM, The only thing JMM has over PBF is power, he is the bigger puncher but that won't help him at all.
