People were excited about it back in 2009-2010.

These days, the whole saga is just boring, and both fighters are clearly past their prime.

I want floyd to get KTFO.

the guy has no power and runner.

It will be much more worse.

These are all facts.. You won't beat those guys with pure athleticism alone.. Especially with no reach advantage to utilize with(except for Ricky).. I can name 10 other boxer with speed and power faster or at par with Manny, but can't see them dominate the sport the way Manny did..
You must understand styles make fights fights and Floyd is for the most part a very patient and calculated fighter. He forecasts his attacks and will mix up his approach based on the flow of the fight. To compare and contrast his battles with common opponents and then base the possible results of a potential battle between Floyd and Pac would be quite inaccurate.

Manny's Better when he waits for his opponents to punch 1st.

If he does that against floyd he'd have a much better chance. Problem is Manny cares about the fans enjoying the fight.

Floyd Don't give a F***.

That will be manny's down fall. 2 boring rounds. its tentative, noones commiting. Boo's start happening. Manny gets impatient. starts swinging wildly. Floyd boxes the crap out f him from the back foot.

Floyd is announced greatest of all time.

I want to Hang myself.

I think i'd rather the fight just didnt happen TBH haha

Sorry my freind thats a flawed description of Floyd's character as a fighter. I fail to understand how and why fight fans don't realize Pac is in for a systematic beatdown if he battles Floyd. This has nothing to do with Pac as a fighter he is superb but again I can't stress this enough styles make fights.

Pac could have fought them at the correct weight couldn't he?

What part of skill is it you Pactards simply dont understand? Its really quite simple. Mayweather has it in spades, your little runt doesn't, which is why he LOSES to fighters that show him any.

I understand that Floyd is more of a defensive fighter, and Pac is the opposite.. The point of my argument is to justify the so called skill difference between Floyd and Manny.. I'll put it simply, its not that far..
