In round 1 Pac hit JMM with some straight left that makes him win the round. I believe if Pac wants too, he can make the fight very boring, by just mimicking round one, be contented on just doing pot shots when opportunity arrise. If Pac did this, he will win more rounds, and win comfortably.

But as I told, Pac likes to entertain his fans.

I'm not sure whether I like this "Pacquiao was just trying to entertain his fans and that's why he didn't look very good" excuse as much as the "He failed to impress on purpose in order to bait Floyd!" one.

Pac can just wait to death himself for JMM to initiate first, but Pac did not. If you remember a few years ago when JMM was still at 126, I forget the name of the lesser opponent, JMM's opponent did not initiate the action, and JMM himself also wait, the crowd booed the whole fight.

Marquez took the lead plenty in their most recent fight. He just also was careful enough in launching his attacks that Pacquiao couldn't land any of the counters he was transparently trying to set up whenever he went to the backfoot.

Based on the trilogy, I'd say very little because of the results:

1st fight: Draw

2nd fight: Pac SD12 Jmm

3rd fight: Pac MD12 Jmm

A very slight improvement overall

pac didnt improved at all, thats why the great pbf doesnt want to fight the over hyped midget...fight is too easy, not worth getting 50m....

pac takes his role of entertaining his fans very seriously. ryan is right. pac said this himself in one of his interviews. pac knows the only way he can entertain is via exciting fights. there is no way he can or plan to compete with mayweather in the theatrical dept.

if his fights are not enetertaining, how is he going to sell the fights?

think about mosley fight, like 3 of them like that. pac isnt gonna allow that kind of stinkers on consecutive fights. he is going to risk more.

watch closely how jmm fought vs. previous 2. pac made him hesitated more. like a lot. why, because pac countered him pretty well, mostly with his right hooks.

i really think pac would have dominated more, had jmm fought him like the previous 2.
