Angry Let's Settle This Once and For All: Pacquaio vs Hamed

There has been a numerous threads about this, actually there is a recent one, but I am interested to really know the pulse of the ESB posters with regards to this mythical good match-up.

Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao vs Prince Naseem Hamed.

Don't just vote. Better to explain your thoughts about this fight. Nuthuggers may enter the thread and poison this, but please be advised it is at your own risk. Mods may ban you permanently for doing such immature thing. They know who you are.

(Just ****in' with the ban threat..)

Anyway, I see this fight resembling the Kelley-Hamed KD-infested massacre, with both fighters hurting each others with their own brands of powerpunches. Hamed may perplexed Pac with his unorthodox style and quickness, but he would be blanketed nonetheless by Pac's swarming style. I don't think Pac would look for any body shots. He knows he need to KTFO Hamed ASAP or else, he would be the one who will be KTFO.

A very exciting fight, but won't reach 5 rounds. Hamed, due to his more pronounced one-shot KO power, puzzling unorthodox style, and Pac's penchant to be open whenever he attacks, would win this one via TKO or KO in a very close, action-packed thriller.

Pac would take this one.

And a Pac**** accused me of always taking the same line on every thread with Pacquiao the other day. The irony.

I'll give Hamed the "more pronounced" KO power edge, but defense? Hamed barely left his **** protected when he threw.

But compared to Pac, he would looked more elusive.

Obviously Pacquiao.

I'm no Pacquiao fan, but he'd certainly find Hamed with that straight left and wobble him. His power would be too much for a weeny Hamed with a plethora of technical flaws.

This fight is just a mismatch like Pacquiao-Morales III

Remember, we are talking about prime for prime, all things considered: experience, boxing skills, talent, power, heart, style, chin, age.

at 126, I'd take Hamed. Both guys like to get in firefights but Hamed had the kind of power that kept people down. As explosive as Manny is, he doesn't have that kind of power. Also, Hamed was rarely caught clean. He'd look like a defensive wizard against Pacquiao's 1-2.

Hamed has a good chance becasue pac comes straight in and can be hit with lead punches.....having said that, pac has a great chance too....Hamed has one punch Ko power...even more than pac...although pac has popp....this would have been a great fight......

PAC....people underrate pacs chin, i think he can take Naz's bombs...and pac may be a come forward type of fighter, but he has this awkward stance that is somewhat hard to time...hamed never had a fast opponent that punched as hard as pac before, so we don't know if his chin would hold.

Against Barrera, Hamed proved he could not handle intense pressure. Pacquaio would bring the pressure to a boiling point! Pacquaio would not let Hamed breathe & would be scoring with plenty of punches inside. The toll would tell & Hamed should begin to crack around the tenth round. Pacquaio 11 TKO.

Naz is hands down probably the hardest hitting 126 ever....no one could take his bombs, .....he knocked people out cold....i remember seeing some poor guy leave the ring in a stretcher....Freak power....im not saying NAz would have won, but if he landed a big bomb, lights out for pac,,,pacs got kod by lighter punchers than NAZ....Morales, MAB, JMM ...none of those guys come close to nazs power...jumped into his punches with all his body, it got him off balance, but boy did those legs give him power

Any fighter coming straight forward got starched by Hamed. Hamed would akwardly dodge the incoming flak and land bombs and Pac would eventually crumble.

pac is just a greater fighter and would find a way to best hamed but in the first fight hamed by ko isay in 5. pac not ready for the power but makes the adjustment to best him in 6-4 out of 10
