Default Re: Anyone else worried that Pac was 147lbs??

His regression has more to do with the last 2 fighters using movement then him slowing down. He looks great against lead footed guys who he can use his elite foot speed on to dash in and out while the oppoent looks like he is stuck in mud. He doesn't look as good vs guys who can establish distance and dash out as he dashes in maintaining the distance they want. Which is only natural, but you would expect someone considered by some as the top fighter in the world to adapt to that, cut off the ring, slip inside and break that guy down which Manny hasn't shown the ability to do effectively.

He's fine...WTF!

We are talkin 3 or 4 pounds here with a guy who has a tittle well above 147.

When are people going to accept the fact that he is a full fledged WW and can no longer play this little guy roll...especialy when his opponent is comming from south of 147

BINGO!

Its when the opponent is stuck in mud and its mainly Pacquiao thats darting in and out, his feet being made to look flashy it that Pacquiao is made too look all that........

......its when his opponent is also using his feet and not standing stationary is that Pacquiao's so called superior footwork becomes null and void.


"Marquez was bigger than I was!" Pacquiao has said this.
Pacquiao I believe felt Marquez' physical strenghth.

Since Pacquiao knows Bradley will be bigger than Marquez, I think he may feel he needs that added mass so that if the fight gets into a situation on the inside where Bradley is bodying up, Pacquiao can attempt to hold his own.

I doubt that Pac is going to be bigger, what's important is his fight night weight and not how (de)hydrated he is at the weigh in

Hey! Don't disgrace a Tijuana hooker working a donkey show by comparing her to a Pactard.

i think pac looked the same as always.speed and power, bradley has speed his self so i knew that was not going to be much of a factor.speed and skill vs speed and power.speed was canceled out of the fight and became skill and will vs power.
