Just look at the Floyd vs Judah. If Judah was more serious about his career and that fight he would have won. He gave Floyd so many problems but he just didn't have the stamina for it. But Judah was the fighter to expose how vulnerable Floyd can be to a skilled southpaw.
I kinda agree with you on how Judah may have won had he been prepared stamina wise. but to compare Judah and Manny is foolish!!! two complete different styles bruh. All in All, this fight may be a snoozer with Manny losing Via UD.

I'm not comparing them by any means, I just said Judah is a skilled southpaw and that was enough to give Floyd problems. Now, with a no rematch clause, I do believe this will be Floyd's last fight. Maybe even Manny's. They will both engage pretty hard. Floyd will feel comfy enough being the bigger fighter while Manny will just try to give the fans a show. I don't think he will care about winning.

I see the biggest hater already has his excuse setup lol. Manny is done lol. First Floyd wouldnt take the fight and he is chicken. Once the fight is made now it doesnt matter because Manny is done LMAO! Classic. That will be the overall excuse for all Floyd haters. They will all say Manny will win but once Floyd beats him then it will turn to Manny was old lol. Oh yea Floyd is older than Manny lol. I love it. He proved yall bitches wrong and the fight is gonna happen. Now once Floyd wins he will go down as the greatest fighter of all time! Deal wit it. Got Em!!

Manny Pacquiao never stood a chance in hell to beat Floyd then or now. THIS IS NOT A CATCH WEIGHT FIGHT...Floyd won't be coming in with a disadvantage...see Cotto, Oscar, Mosley, Margarito, Morales. Manny can't get physical and push Floyd around. Look just face it Floyd is 100% dedicated to the sport of boxing, he comes from a family of knowledgable boxers! he's an Olympian, he is one if the best defenders EVER...and the most important punch in boxing...is the jab. Floyd is gonna open Pacquiao up upstairs the shift downward...this will stop Manny from rushing forward reference fights: May vs Corrales and May vs Marquez...and the second half of the May vs Maidana fight.

The Manny that destroyed Cotto in 2009 had a chance. That was Pacquiao at his peak. Even the guy you guys love to quote said so before he got on the Haymon payroll:


AAsked why he thinks the mighty Filippino can pose problems for Floyd, Malignaggi reveals some very interesting insights. “Ever since I watch Floyd Mayweather he gives you a defense where he locks up. And a lot of the time obviously it works for Floyd. Floyd is very hard to hit, regardless of the fact. But I always thought that somebody with fast hands – that throws punches in bunches and throws them in flurries – might not land on Floyd – because he locks up so well – he has the ability to leave Floyd there.”

Malignaggi’s analysis starts to fascinate. “And what I mean by that is, move your hands, step out, you leave him there. Throw punches, step out. Before you know it, Floyd, if he’s giving you all this, he never gets the chance to get back off. Because you’re in and out. And that costs you rounds. Through the course of Mayweather’s career, he’s always been faster than most of his opponents. But the fast guys that he did fight did show glimpses of it. Oscar showed glimpses of that. Zab Judah showed glimpses of that – that you can do that to Floyd. The problem is you very rarely will hit him clean. So I think these guys get frustrated and get away from that. But in the meantime, what they don’t realize is that they’re probably winning rounds because Floyd is not getting off. Pacquiao doesn’t have to change anything about himself. He fights that way naturally.”

“So I can see that being a problem for Floyd, especially as he gets older. So how will Floyd counteract that? [He might price himself out of ever having to fight Pacquiao, or blame Bob Arum, that’s how he might counteract Pacquiao. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.] Floyd is always good at pulling the trigger on time. When you want to get off, he pot shots you. Pacquiao wants to get off, he might run into a shot. Before you know it, Pacquiao can’t get off any more. He’s gun shy because he’s running into shots.”

“Floyd has the ability to pull the trigger on time. That kind of fight, at his age, after two years off, he beats Manny Pacquiao. But the reason I see it as a threat is because, being able to pull the trigger in that split-second time is the first thing you lose as you get older. That’s why that fight is a threat, in my eyes. Because Marquez doesn’t have that kind of speed and the ability to put together punches in bunches at that rate of speed. He puts punches in bunches – but not fast enough to bother Floyd. Pacquiao puts punches together in bunches at a speed high enough to bother Floyd. That’s why I see the risk in the fight.”

Malignaggi again began to lean towards slightly towards Pacquiao. “A guy that wants to pot shot can’t pot shot you if they come in too fast. Floyd has made a career of always beating these Mexican guys. He will always beat these Mexican fighters. They’re a little slow, they give you daylight in between their punches. Floyd’s counterpunching skills and pot shots is gonna be able to slip punches in between those punches.”

“But somebody that comes so fast, not showing daylight between their punches. Guys like Judah did, guys like De La Hoya did early in the fight. You can’t put pot shots between those combinations. They’re coming too fast. Before you know it, you’re only on defense. When you want to get back on offense, the guy is leaving you there. You do that enough times in every round, what happens? You lose the round. I’m not saying they’re gonna stop him because Floyd is hard to hit. But you put yourself in a hole round-wise.” -Paulie

I never backed out from what I said CZAR @CZAR . Manny by decision. You tell me how you think this match will play out. Floyd by KO? While a lot of people are saying Floyd is gonna run around, I'm saying he won't. With the amount of ppv sales and money this will get, he will retire after this fight. CBS MADE FLOYD FIGHT! Please understand that. That's why it's a 1 fight deal. And while HBO execs are speaking more and more on the details, Showtime is staying quiet and that's for a reason. It took Floyd $120 mill to fight Manny, and had to let Manny take 40%, not what Floyd wanted. If you want me to talk like that I will, but I'm not. I told WYNO to just enjoy the fight now and here you are acting like Floyd was for sure gonna fight Manny. Like he never was scared. Oh, and by the way, Manny signed first and it's a proven fact now.

Bwhwhahahahah! As usual thanks Battle for the laughs. Floyd got 60/40 because he deserves it, because Manny is still napping from Marquez lol. Of course Manny had to sign first to make sure he agreed to the drug testing and other demands. Why would Floyd sign before him? Make any sense to you? Floyd scared?? Sure maybe scared of Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers but not little off the roid Manny. Floyd by unanimous decision unless the fix is in like when one judge scored Mayweather/Canelo a draw haha. Got Em!!

Floyd wanted more than 60, we all know that. He also wanted it to be all on Showtime and that didn't happen either. Why, cuz Showtime was LOSING MONEY WITH FLOYD! They probably would have cut his ass loose if he didn't fight Manny. CBS stepped in and did business with TR, not TMT. Now this card is being said to be a TMT card, but Top Rank fighters are gonna be all over this shit. Is that what Floyd wanted? Arum having control of this card? NO! This is a case of Fear Factor for Floyd. He wouldn't just eat worms for kicks, he would have to know he will get paid good and make sure the worms are super small with no flavor.

Really? Still going with the PEDs BS huh?

I'm saying Pacquiao had a much better chance in 2009 vs 2015. I've said before Pacquiao had declined much more than Floyd has. I don't see Pac as the same fighter, and I think that's pretty obvious. we started seeing a decline before he got KOd by JMM, and certainly after. He's got a chance, but only if he shows at least flashes of his old self. Floyd has declined too a bit, but not much. Floyd has never had any wars so there isn't much mileage on his body.

I respect Cotto's opinion but Manny is not going to get the opportunity to get close to Floyd. Notice how tall Floyd is compared to Marquez now look at Floyd get under Marquez and stretch out the jab. Marquez is a stand up fighter as well as Pacquiao and Floyd will play it down stairs. In just round one Floyd blistered Marquez down low...caught him upstairs and Knocked him down in the next round or so. Manny will NOT COME IN RECKLESSLY...the guy has been KO'd and is still timid. After a couple of Mayweather lead rights he will become cautious see: Mosley, Canelo, Guerrero etc. Then this will become a boxing match and Mayweather will win fairly easy.

For the last 5 years, I've said that Floyd would easily win due to ring generalship. But after Pacquiao's last 2 wins, I think this fight is as close as it's ever been in terms of the matchup. I actually picked Pacquiao decision on the poll but wouldn't be surprised to see Floyd win easy. Either way, bout damn time!!!

The most common mistake is people think Mayweather is going to use the Philly Shell against Pacquiao but he never really utilized it in the Zab Judah fight...instead he used the high glove peek a boo style because of Zabs speed. It's a position where he can respond quicker and be more assertive...when it comes to speed fighters like Shane (2nd round Mayweather got caught flush in the shell defense by Mosely) Floyd then came back squared up and dominated Shane. Just like in these pic with Zab...Mayweather rarely used his primary defensive stance...keeping a high guard. I think Mayweather will approach Pacquiao in the same fashion to keep Manny straight in his sights and not make the mistake of turning his back on Pacquaio because Pacquiao can get around him and Floyd may lose track of where Manny is at. The punch you don't see is the punch that can hurt you. Floyd by easy unanimous decision 9 rounds to 3.
