If Marquez can hurt Pac with a counter then Floyd can do it too. If cotto can land a clean uppercut whilst pac is standing there with his hands up then so can floyd. If Margarito can pin Pac against the ropes......well floyd wont do that but still you see my point.

Its a close fight but until it happens im going with Floyd to win
Marquez fought a drained Pac. Cotto and Margarito are bigger punchers than Marquez.

This fight will be won by movement and footwork.

Floyd's white girl name is Brittney so you are spot on.

PBF can hurt Pac and people who say it haven't been in the ring before. PBF is the master at hitting guiys with shots you don't see. He hurt both Mosley and Oscar both of which have iron chins we he fought them with those types of shots. If he catches Pac with a shot he doesn't see he will hurt Pac.

That's why Floyd is scared **** to face Pac.
Since when has Pac been this great finisher? He didn't finish off Clottey, He didn't finish off Margo. He didn't finish off JMM despite dropping him 3 times in 1 round. He didn't finish off Cotto when he dropped him 2x. He didn't finish off Oscar either. Pac being a great finsiher is a myth.

It's all the evidence I need that Pacquiao would beat him. Pac is a great, great southpaw. Floyd is not 'great' fighting southpaws. He's pretty decent-good, not nearly as great as he is fighting right handed fighters. It's that simple.
Atleast we have footage of PBF being in the ring with southpaws. Pac has never been in the ring with a fast fighter let alone a slick defensive counter-puncher. And he will be shocked and lost when he finally faces one.

He clearly did hurt him. Also Gatti was excellent at taking shots... he got stopped a few times against the best.. but they were mainly ref stoppages rather than him collapsing to the canvas.

Gatti came from the school of boxing that suggested using the middle of your face to parry shots before firing in counters.

And they both hurt him also. fact is that that Floyd can counterpunch effectively and i think he could hurt pac ( not KO him ) and give pac a lot of trouble.

Pacs got an annoying tendency to stand still at times, its one of the things that annoys me about him

I wish somebody would ask Freddie Roach this question. The ignorance of this comment is sheer comedy. It also goes to show you who spent time in a ring and who didn't.

Floyd usually wins by decisions. He can hurt Pac but KO? No. In any case I dont see how would he win a decision by a wide margin against a guy who throws like 70+ punches in different angles a round while he throws like 20 a round.

He knows he will surely lose his 0.

He couldnt be competitve with Floyd, let alone beat him, or easily knock him out.
Did Cotto or Margo hurt Mosely..............nope, but Floyd did over and over again, and could have stopped him.
This fights not going to happen, but had it happened any time in the last year, Floyd beats him widely. Let it go now.

He needs to drop pacs activity and his punches landing and have a high connect percentage himself. If pac was bigger and a longer reach I would pick him for sure.

If Tszyu couldn't stop Hatton, what chance does Mayweather have?!
