Good fight!

I'm leaning towards Pac because I really think 140 is the best weight for Pac to be in, he doesn't give up as much size as he does at WW, he's still pretty fast, he doesn't have to drain weight, and it's just around the time where his skill and technique were at their peak.


But Tszyu had incredible accuracy with that right of his, and Pac's more open to a straight right, so with KT's power... who knows.

Quit being such a nuthugger..he gave his honest opinion. I assume you got Pacquiao KO 1 right?

Stop insulting everyone and try and debate like a man if that is possible. This is an interesting match up. pac;s speed and movement vs Kt;s accurate power punching.

I never deal in absolutes when trying to determine how a fight will go down. Simply because this is boxing, and you just never know what will happen. I noticed that as fans, we often focus too much on what our favorite fighter will do to the other fighter and often forget what that other fighter can do in return (or do 1st). You can't deny that Tszyu had scary power, and you can't deny that Manny is probably hit by straight rights more often than other shots. But hey, if you want to be like 95% of the posters here whose predictions at best will go something like "Manny by Murder" or "Tszyu via rape", go right ahead. You'll start sounding like those posters who say Marquez "schooled" Pacquiao, only you'll be on the other side of the fence.

Yeah as I think about it, the only way I see Tszyu winning is by KO, and at these higher weights Pacs chin has been made of granite. I can't even remember the last time he was down TBH.. And while Zoo was past his peak against Hatton, he really didn't look to hot against constant pressure, which I think Pacquiao brings in a more controlled manner..I think Pacquiao TKOS him late, but maybe we'd fight out just how hard that right hand was..

Cotto's best weapon was his left hand, and honestly, I don't see a jab or left hook being much of a weapon against Pac, as he fight has proved since Pac was countering his jabs and hooks a lot during the fight. Clottey just lacks the output and willingness to fight to be able to keep up with Pac (notice though that the few times he threw and connected against Pac, it was with a right hand). Different fighters, different outcomes.

I'm not even saying Pac loses, I just said that Tszyu's best weapon just happens to be a punch that Pac get hits often with.

So to answer your question, as profound and thought provoking as it was, yes, I'm not sure because I never ever say I'm 100% sure when I try to predict a fight and because I really do think I have a valid reason to be unsure.

Manny has never fought a guy with the power and accuracy of tsyzu and although i think manny is the better overall fighter at this weight and overall i think this is a bad matchup for him. If he gets hit with some of the shots cotto and clottey hit him with against a guy with much more power and accuracy he is getting koed imo.

Wow, what a war this would be against two stand and deliver, true warriors, prime v prime I couldn't pick them. One pocket battle ship (Pacquiao) has a better arsenal, whilst the other (Tszyu) has more, in my opinion, has more ring craft and whiles.
I voted I don't know.
