    Seriously? A natural featherweight at 5'5" fighting at welterweight against a natural Jr.Middle/middle whom trained down to welterweight where he was at his most devastating best. Hearns would be faster than Pac, have better all around skills, and of course hit harder to the 10th power. A more interesting question is does Pac get past 2rds.... And that's on a off night for Hearns......

    Pacquaio has surpassed him imo. If Hearns couldn't beat a flyweight he wouldn't be very good would he?

    He will get the same treatment Duran got.

    And Pacquiao doesn't have Duran's ring IQ.

    Lights out in 3.

    I'm a massive Pacquiao fan and as such would hate to see this fight.

    Manny is far, far, far too small to be competitive with Hearns. He might be able to beat bigger guys like Margarito but they're lead footed plodders. Hearns is a monster puncher, with lightening fast hands, brilliant jab, elite skills, killer instinct and 6" of height and 11" of reach over him. Awful match up for Manny.

    Now if you debate whose the better p4p fighter that's a lot more competitive.

    Hearns by devastating KO. The attacking Pac would run into the Hitman's right hand and then good night.

    Hearns knocks Manny and Floyd out back to back imo

    Maybe floyd MIGHT go into survival mode and survive, but I doubt it. Especially if the fight is over 15 rounds

    I doubt if any promoter could give Mayweather Jr enough money to get in a boxing ring with a prime T.Hearns..... Or prime R.Robinson,R Leonard, R.Duran, A.Pryor, J.Napoles,A.Cervantes, D Curry, etc ......Mayweather Jr's actions speak for themselves, waiting for Pac to slow, and get KO'ed. Every opponent he faced above lightweight had some big question mark to them.

    that's fair enough

    but what has all that nonsense got to do with me saying Hearns kills both back to back (especially little Pac who Jmm killed)

    Yes sir and pretty much any 147 guys worst nightmare

    Fair played to Ray Leonard for getting that W, as tommy was a killer at WW

    Never mind the power, the jab alone was enough for most
