    Or would Whitaker clown him and rough him up on the inside with bully tactics?

    Whitaker would clown him.

    Please don't got overboard based on Saturday. Thurman's a bum.

    Whittaker is a top tier fighter that could like FMM dominate without throwing too many punches....but know the fight would be fun with Manny's hand and foot speed but Sweet Pea will turn him and make him miss in the pocket while countering.....Sweet Pea was an ATG and a naturally bigger man with speed as well and pretty physically strong...Manny throws a lot of fast punches but his inaccuracies against lesser fighters is the reason Sweet Pea beats him

    Pernell decimates Pacquiao. Thurman is who? Manny will be Ms. Whitaker after that fight

    At 135? Pacquiao's volume would overwhelm Pernell. By the time Pernell got in to the fight it would be too late.

    Pacquiao and Pryor are the worst style matchups for Pernell because of there volume

    Whitaker would beat Manny similar to how Floyd did. Head to head he could not beat Pernell.

    Whitaker for me, as he had his own firepower to deal with, ATG jab he worked off, and that underrated power to the body

    Exactly. Pernell's body punches were harder than anyone gave him credit for. I remember how his bodypunching was effective against Chavez.

    Ya for sure .. I just think Pac, even though I like him better than the other 2, is at a somewhat stylistic disadvantage out of the gate against Pea and Floyd

    Pernell fought a lot of men who had great firepower. Tito's hook is harder than anything Pacman can dish out.

    I otherwise think it's a great fight and Pacman poses big problems for Pernell. They are 2 ATGs and about the same size at the end of the day.
