    But to what extend will Spence be willing to exchange? He didn't want to trade with Mikey, preferred to outbox him. Surely Spence will land some, but Pacquiao has an iron chin.
    But Thurman was ready to trade with Pacquiao. It didn't go too well for him... :smile:

    So, yes, I see Spence Jr. as an obvious favorite, but I'm not sure at all he would stop Pacquiao.

    Yeah a few years ago would've been a different story, but Pac can't go 12 hard rounds anymore and Spence is a heck of a body puncher. That's a bad combo and not the note I wanna see Pac leave on

    Seems like you’re upset that Pac didn’t fight the best welterweight. You seem to think its Spence. Hes not. Keith was the best welterweight by a mile. He fought and beat better fighters at 147 than anyone else besides Manny. Why would Manny call out Spence? It seems you tried to paint Mannys last few years as mediocre but seem to look past the cringe that has been Spence resume in that same period. I think Spence has talent. I think he can beat Manny. But to act like Manny is not facing the best is wrong when its Spence who has really done nothing at this point. Dude is almost 30 and still being treated like a prospect.

    @Maidanas Gun Tattoo 1 more: Personally, I think & am guilty of protecting/forgiving vets who take certain fights in their twilight years. THey IMO earned it.

    But when they do, I can't give them a pass and say they turned the clock back. Wont Make posts about young talents they are not calling out. But...Im ok with this thread and the poster who did.
    Yet You are correct M-Gun! Manny has done all he needed to do. His legacy is cemented regardless of who he fights from now on.

    They will face each other as that's the bracket they are in on the PBC line up. You can to listen Ellerbe say Pac is not scared of Spence, bring it. It's actually kinda weird listening to Ellerbe wax poetically about Pac, and shut down the stupid questions.

    No thank you on listening to Ellerbe. He can say what he wants. I will only deal with who Roach, Arum & Pac say they want.
    They mentioned Thurman & a retired Floyd.

    If I were to listen to Ellerbe? Then it would be him saying stop calling out Floyd; he's retired. LOL!

    "He's awkward. He has a combination of everything. footwork, the speed. you don't know the angles. Manny aint backing down! "

    He also said he would love to see the rematch with Thurman!

    Either Pac by K.O inside 6 rounds or UD going either way(but most likely for Spence).

    Spence is an easier fight for Pacquiao style wise, but Pacquiao will also be older. Pacquiao can take more of his shots than he could afford vs Thurman, and Spence is nowhere the boxer that Thurman is. The problem for Spence is he is a smaller, chinnier Margarito, he’s not particularly fast, slower than Thurman, he’s considerably slower of foot than Thurman and Pacquiao, he is nowhere near at the lvl to being able to being able to counter or trade that a guy like Thurman and Pacquiao can. Spence’s hope is that he can overwhelm a tired Pacquiao with too many punches than he can answer, and that he wont get badly beaten throwing all those punches. But I have my doubts that Pacquiao can’t cut that workrate in half and turn Spence into a boxer when he feints him to hell and has Spence walk into big shots(Pacquiao hurts everyone, and Spence has leaky defense).

    Leaky defense pressuring or slow feet boxing, neither can beat Pacquiao. Spence will have to absorb Pacquiao’s punishment in hopes of tiring him, interesting fight. Not one-sided at all. Does team Pacquiao want it though? It seems to me the entire boxing world is in awe of Spence. Maybe if Porter shows us he’s human this fight can happen.
