Default Would Mayweather-Pacquiao be like Lewis-Tyson?

Talks of a potential Lewis v Tyson bout went back as far as 1992 yet the fight happened a decade later (2002). Tyson was far removed from his prime Lewis was past it but elite. I believe a similar thing will happen but will Pacquiao be the foil that makes Mayweather great? (or vice versa)

i can't believe people actually gave tyson anything more than a punchers chance.

I personally think floyd will be rapidly declined in his next fight (if he does fight again)

His body went through a lot in the cotto fight. Plus the jail time.

If floyd does fight again,and if its against a reasonable threat. I know where i'll put my money.

But its a shame. Because Pac vs May 2009 would have been epic IMO. POtential for the fight of our generation.

His body didn't really go through anything that serious versus Cotto. Certainly not some career declining beating or anything remotely like it.

It's possible, but I suspect these two are as declined as one-another. I favour Mayweather pretty heavily now (always favoured him) but i don't think mayweather has anything like the brutality on offence that Lewis did.

I think it will yes, Manny is nothing without his fury in the ring which seems to have gone and Floyd will just be able to pick him apart.
