Pacquiao will win via TKO/KO in the middle to late rounds, or a wide UD if Floyd decides to survive.

Floyd's first official defeat will come from Pacquiao.


added a poll. feel free to vote, DKSAB = don't know shit about boxing.
Sorry but we all know Pac wont even be able to see out of both eyes by the time of your prediction. If it isn't an early KO it's safe to say Pac won't have any chance.

If Floyd decides to rest on the ropes, then Pac might land a hail mary. Otherwise, he is getting a boxing lesson.

I think Pacquiao is going to hurt Floyd during an exchange that will be a game changer for Floyd. I know Floyd will try and utilize what JMM does that gives Pacquiao problems (and he will give the pac man trouble), but I don't think he can pull it off as well as JMM. Not even JMM himself can beat Pacquiao clearly. Floyd although bigger and stronger isn't used to fighting Pacquiao like JMM is. Manny has a huge task himslef in preparing for Floyd, but I think he's slightly easier to prepare for than the Pacman himself.

I dont agree with you I believe Mayweather will make it look easy.

I think he could really put his foot on the gas and try to stop him.

But to be honest we are all speculating I want the fight to be made, I know ESB will crash that night for sure lol!

Its like I always said if Manny tried boxing and make Marquez come forward preventing Jmm frpm being the counterpuncher Manny wins, but instead he did what he always does and comes forward Marquez beats him everytime. If anyone who is unbiased and is a real boxing watches his fight with Hatton that Manny Pacquiao was different than in any of his other fights. He was countering beautifully that night. Against Floyd Manny will have to receive shots in order to land his own and not stay in front of Floyd. You cannot knockout fighters like Floyd or Marquez that is impossible you better have a gameplan to beat them by going the distance. Manny massively underrated Marquez thinking time and all the advantagges were on his side. Manny didnt have a plan B vs Jmm and that was another thing that convinced me even more Manny not as ring savvy as I thought. He could still win vs Floyd, but not until he recognizes his shortcomings vs Marquez then how can he handle Floyd. Mayweather W12 Pacquiao. Acouple yrs ago I had it the other way.

Pac has look good against every one else except Marquez because of his style. The others put in front of him were stationary targets without much boxing ability or enough skill to adjust to what Manny was trying to do. If Marquez give Pac Problems, Floyd will be a nightmare style wise for him. If this fight comes to pass, there's going to be a lot of angry Pac fans out there.

You are only as good as your last fight...

The version of Pacquiao who worked Cotto would have beaten Mayweather in a close decision. The current version is prolly gonna get schooled. Mayweather knows this, which is why the negotiations are supposedly moving forward.

The fight lost its luster. They shoulda fought in early 2010.

Does that mean you won't be watching? Because if not, then it hasn't lost it's luster.

At the VERY WORST, Floyd could just do what JMM in a better way and beat Pac. People make it a point to say that they do not fight alike...which they are right in many regards, but Floyd is extremely versitile in the ring and he can pretty much fight any way he wants. He can certainly emulate what JMM did with Pac, as he is smarter, faster, stronger and if need be he can show that he is a better combination puncher. I don't think he will fight Pac like JMM did, but he certainly can and win a lopsided decision. I think Floyd relegates Pac back to being a fake..fake..straight left hand fighter. He will punish and embarrass him and if Pac fights to win during the whole fight, and not just survive, he definitely get stopped late on cuts, by his corner or TKO.

The first time I heard about Pac/Cotto I said "mismatch"(and not in Cotto favor), this fight is gonna be the same thing. "Mismatch" and it certainly is not in Pac's favor.
