You asked a question and I answered it.

Win or lose pacquiao gives mayweather the fight of his anyone who cant see that is a twat

Edit: Are you saying that mayweather has better power, speed or workrate? No way does he hit harder. He has better timing not speed and has no workrate at all.

Don't question your points, e, but can you see him using those things to best Floyd? Doesn't matter ifya have an H bomb, ifya can't land it.

Notice you're hedgin' your bet, sayin' Pac will "give Mayweather the fight of his life," but NOT that he'll win.

I think Floyd wins too. But don't focus so much on the "what he does better". Pac is good enough for people to think he has a chance. Boxing is more complicated than "this guy has more skills, he wins". There have been many bigger upsets throughout the history of boxing. Floyd himself sees enough in Pac to be asking for OSDT.

Jose Luis Castillo arguably beat Floyd in the first fight and Pac is better. Don't forget a shot Mosley almost knocked him out. It's boxing.

Floyd got hurt but was nowhere near being KO'd... he was not even knocked down.

You can remain on your feet and still be more hurt than if you get knocked down. This has happens in boxing all the time.

Of course not. If I had to bet I would bet on Floyd, no doubt. Would I be 100% certain that we would win? Of course not.

Hell, Dave Tiberi beat James Toney (didn't get the decision). This wouldn't be nearly as shocking.

He came back stronger in the same round. There is no indication that he was on his way out. That's when you see a guy go into survival mode for about 2 rounds to clear the cob webs. It is pretty clear that he was not going to get knocked out after about 20 seconds after the shot.

Don't think the Toney analogy fits, S. Floyd's never come in ring at less than his best.
