Who would win between these two top boxers? I have read on other sites that supposedly it's gonna happen at the end of the year if Mayweather wins this summer. How much would it generate in terms of ppv sales?

I would love to see this fight, and actually think Pacman would take it. As far as PPV buys tho, I'm not sure it'd be that huge a draw. Sure it's the biggest fighting in Boxing, but I don't think you can truly call either fighter a household name.

There's really no way to find out. Mayweather hasn't fought in two years. He may have aged a little.

We'll get a better look after his fight with JMM.

Mayweather currently doesn't really have a weight class. He's somewhere in between Jr. Welterweight and Welterweight (140-147). That's where his next fight with Marquez will take place. I predict that will be the about same place a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight would take place...somewhere around a catchweight of 144-147.

I tried answering this in another thread. In his bout against De La Hoya, it was for DLH's junior middleweight championship, which is 154 lbs. Mayweather Jr. came into the weigh in at 150. I'm not sure what he rehydrated to on fight night.

I just joined prosportsdaily. I've been following Pacquiao since Ledwaba. I've been watching boxing since Tyson defeated Trevor Berbick and I've caught up with pretty much all of boxing history through live and archived footage. I'm not necessarily on the Pacquiao bandwagon, but I know greatness when I've seen it.

And who has Mayweather fought with anyone near Pacquiao's skills or ring intelligence? This kid is still improving at 30. His right used to be nonexistent. Now it's a power punch. At the higher weight classes, he's getting faster and he's becoming more powerful.

In terms of resumes, Pacquiao is 7-1-1 in defeating Hall of Famers (if you include Ricky Hatton). Yes, a lot of people say he lost one of those fights to Marquez, but a lot of people believe Mayweather lost his first fight with Castillo. And you don't think he could beat Timothy Bradley? Bradley is a one handed power puncher who likes to plant his feet way too much. He also looks like he needs to work on taking body shots a little more.

Mayweather, sad to say, is more known in avoiding top fighters than challenging them.

who did he avoid dont say cotto or mosely because he could easily beat mosely if you say otherwise then your ********.
As far as cotto go's mayweather wanted him to build up his fan base before he beat him down he dont want someone to eat off his name.

I never said he couldn't beat these guys, but it seems that the 17 month retirement was for his competition to lose (Cotto and Margarito), (outgrow the weight class (Paul Williams), or get old (Mosley). I mean you can't sit there and tell me that any of those names are not better than some of those guys on his resume. Again I'm not saying he can't beat those guys. However, I'm not saying he can either. The question remains...why didn't he beat those guys?

And the bolded part is very close to nuthugging. Be a little more objective.

He retired because he wanted the landscape of his divison to change aint nothing wrong with that & could you see the man of your dreams (pacqiauo) gettin the ring with any of them i sure as hell cant.

Yes, there is. Why did he have to wait for the landscape of the division to change? He wants to proclaim that he's the best of all time. Why not challenge the best available?


& could you see the man of your dreams (pacqiauo) gettin the ring with any of them i sure as hell cant.

Arum's reportedly pissed Mayweather couldn't wait a couple of hours for Pacquiao when he announced his coming off of retirement. He's reportedly scheduling a fight with Cotto in November at MSG.

Pacquiao isn't the man of my dreams. However, his resume is becoming amazing. 7-1-1 against Hall of Famers, one of two men to win titles in six weight divisions, the only man in boxing history to win four linear titles, has boxed from 106 minimumweight-147 welterweight, the current pound for pound king...

Okay...and Pacquiao is a big step up from Castillo, Baldomir, Judah, Sharmba Mitchell, and Arturo Gatti.

And please don't disrespect Mexican fighters. They've been one of the biggest reasons the lower weight divisions have been amazing.

Pacquiao's got Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales, and Juan Manuel Marquez in his resume...all three are definite Hall of Famers. Both boxers share De La Hoya and Hatton.

Gatti was most known for his chin and power. As far as boxing skills go, he was average.

Gatti was my favorite boxer. His trilogy with ward and the loses against Robinson were great fights. I wanted him to destroy mayweather. But when Mayweather beat up on Judah i became a supporter of floyd

Gatti's trilogy with Mickey Ward...all three bouts were great, but my favorite had to be the third one where he fought one handed for a good portion of the fight. He showed he was a great warrior, just as he had fought Robinson. He was exciting. He drew fans. He had a great chin and took great punches and he dished it out, but I still stand by my statement that he was more of a brawler than a boxer.

I became a fan of Mayweather when I first saw him in Atlantic City around 10 years ago. He was fighting a no name, but a friend of mine recommended I see him after he saw him in LA. The fight lasted two rounds, but I could tell he was something back then. He had all the tools...it was just a matter of building with them.

I think PBF will be overwhelmed come fight night in a fight that goes long but ends with a TKO for Manny. Pacman will bring a fight reminiscent of Hatton v Mayweather which left PBF saying that Hatton was the toughest fighter he fought because he just kept "coming and coming." If Hatton was tough because he was relentless, Floyd better watch out when an even better boxer keeps coming at him...

All I gotta say is Pacquiao's win over De La Hoya and Hatton were alot better and he looked alot smoother and faster then Mayweathers wins over these 2 bums.

Mayweather went what 10 rounds with hatton. Wow ..because Pacquiao destroyed this bum in 10 rounds.

I'd like to see mayweather actually step in the ring and go toe to toe.

Remember all that smack he was talking during the oscar fight...

" i only fight big money fights"
" i only fight the best "

talking smack about margarito , cotto etc...

Well Your money fight is here.
The best fighter is here and he's in your weight class.

Stop hiding and being scared and coming up with excuses and fight Pacquiao.

Pacquiao dont fight for the money, he just goes out and fights and like he says does his job....

Fight manny .....Put ur money wear ur mouth his , and get in the ring and get knocked the **** out by Manny.

Well when you're a marquee fighter like Pacquiao, money always has something to do with your next opponents. When you reach a high popular status (De La Hoya), become pound-for-pound best (Mayweather), or both (Pacquiao), it seems major boxing organizations like the WBA, WBC, WBO, and IBF care a lot less who your next opponent is and don't really give you a mandatory challenger (which is good, since their processes of coming up with a contender are highly inaccurate). So fighters of these caliber usually have to go out and look for an opponent, a lot of which is left to their promoters (ex. GBP, Top Rank). They're not going to take ANYONE. They have to find a high quality fighter AND someone who is a big draw to sell tickets and PPV buys. These are the precise reasons Pacquiao fought his last two fights instead of staying in the lightweight division. Make no mistake though, no boxer in history, if asked to fight De La Hoya if they were in Manny's shoes with his talent and skills, would have turned that down.

Im sorry dude, but you just talk a lot of crap.

First you said IF Pacman beats Hatton, it wouldnt be by knockout, then what happened? It only took him 2 rounds.

Mayweather is nice and has really nice defense, yes, but I honestly dont think he can beat Manny. Marquez is going to give Mayweather work, bet on that. Marquez is a beast.

And Mayweather is scared of Cotto, thats why he wont fight him. He know he wont win.

As far as handspeed goes, Pacquiao can put a much more meaningful combination than Mayweather can. Mayweather however, is not a combination puncher, but is very accurate. The problem with that is that he can't fully put his power into those accurate punches at any given moment. Can Mayweather handle Pacquiao's quick and powerful flurries that come from all angles? That remains to be seen...

Footwork is dead even. Mayweather likes to steal rounds and keeps away until his opponent tires. Pacquiao has shown he could work in the middle or on the perimeter, but his stamina makes him look like he could fight 20 rounds.
