Floyd is MUCH more of a complete fighter. Pacquaio's speed, movement and power will make it interesting and he has a chance of a KO early if he catches Floyd clean and often, but if not it will be a close-ish UD for Money. He will take a few rounds to adapt then that lead right hand will punish the Pacman.
Remember, he is the OPPOSITE of the fighters that Manny has looked so spectacular against, he will not plod forward waiting to get hit like De La Hoya, Hatton, Diaz, Cotto AND Clottey!! Pacman has not convinced me against pure boxers, and Floyd is the purest of the pure. Unanimous decision.
Marra, I agree with you. I can't see Haye getting anything above 16st and would be shocked if he did. He knows that he HAS to retain his speed if he has a chance, his hand speed and footwork are his two biggest weapons along with his obvious power. I think as long as Haye picks his shots carefully, keeps moving away from Wlad's right hand then he has every chance of a mid - late round stoppage. Haye counters the jab beautifully with that almighty right hand, and as long as he doesn't take shots and improves his defence from what it was against Ruiz, I think he will take out Wlad. It will be much harder to knock out Vitali, although I think he's probably easier to hit with him not being as gun shy and holding his left hand much lower...he just seems to have an iron set of whiskers! Haye is an absolute breath of fresh air for boxing...hard hitting, fast, confident and well spoken Champ! I'll be there for his next fight aswell. Peace.
Bearcat, you sound like the only gutless coward here. You have been chatting all this ****, but haven't explained yourself once. Your an idiot. Getting beat by Floyd and Manny makes you a gutless coward, so is DeLa Hoya in similar light? Your a mug.
Beercat, you really are a stupid idiot. Did Ricky seduce your mum? Are you the illegitimate love child of a drunk Ray Hatton? Shut up and stop embarrassing yourself. Hatton NEVER REMEMBERED?! HAHAHAHAHAHA! 35,000 Brits went OVER THE POND to watch him. Name another fighter who has gone even close to that. You are a fool.
"Hatton has limited boxing skills and is embarrassed when confronted with anyone with talent." He has only lost to Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, the two P4P best in the world, and two guaranteed future hall of famers. And are you trying to say that Tzsyu, Castillo, Malignaggi, Collazo, Urango, Tackie and Philips had NO talent, seeing as they didn't 'embarrass' him?? Think about what your saying please, at least respect the world class fighters who he has beaten if you can't respect the "over the hill pasty milk skinned England hyped average boxer" himself. Hatton was never P4P material, but most world class fighters aren't. Hatton dominated the light welterweight division for years, that makes him world class.
Ps. I also dont think that he is a 'genuine' world champ yet, but, given time he will fight big names and get the chance to become a 'genuine' world champ. He has the skills and power...he just needs to experience at world level.
As I was saying....I agree that Khan hasn't had the hardest fights he could have and that yes, his confidence can be classed as arrogance, but dont mention him in the same breathe as Audley Harrison please!
Also, I think you are jumping the gun a bit stating that Marquez is shot...because he lost comprehensively to Mayweather Jr at 147?! A tad of an overstatement to say the least...
The boy is 22/23, and you are expecting him to fight Mayweather or Pacquiao after 3 more fights?! Give him time!! I think Malignaggi or Marquez are good fights for him, he needs to establish himself in the US and go from there. I think he has the tools to beat these two, and could then go on and fight bigger names once he is more experienced and more established.
Be patient...and dont expect him to fight Mayweather or Pacquiao in his next 4-5 fights, and dont criticise him for not doing so...its just not going to happen!
