    Also STYLES MAKE FIGHTS. Pac could be 50 years old and still whoop Broner even worse than prime Maidaba did. :deal:

    Don't think he is, but Pac is a stylistic nightmare for Broner. Plus Broner probably can't rely on his name+nationality (scores in his favor) against someone like Pac anymore, now the bubble has burst too many times.

    Pac has been robbed many times so anything can happen.

    I semi predicted the Bradley one, as I stated if it would be close that Bradley's US nationality would trump Pac's star status and got ridiculed for it. In this case however I can't see it happening because Broner is kind of a gimmick now, instead of "Floyd's natural successor" as some claimed before he got exposed (for the 3rd time, but now also on the judges' scorecards finally) against Maidana.

    Pac has 2 more fights in him against the young lions. If he wins both these fights he ATG top 5 in any book. This is for legacy. No one can call Broner shot and it's descent name on the resume specially if he can STOP Bron.

    No, Maidana was physically stronger at the time and I think more motivated. Broner was undefeated too. Nonetheless, this question does not make any sense.

    I would pick Pacquiao simply due to Broner's inactivity in the ring. It will be likely nothing is happening for 2/3 of a round, and then last 30-40 seconds Pacquiao turns it up and steals the round, without doing a lot of damage. And Broner passive and not doing **** in return. That's how I see it.

    They fight nothing alike. Pacquiao doesnt do anything like Maidana I mean he might punch as hard and have an unorthodox style but thats about it

    Maidana when he fought Floyd would have did far better v Horn than Manny did.
