Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao
We cannot believe the fight is going to happened, and it happens today (May 2nd). If you're a boxing fan, then you know what fight we are talking about, and that is Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao! And yes, it is really happening. The contract has been signed, details worked out, the date has been set and all boxing fans have to do now is wait a few hours, order the fight and sit back and enjoy. If you have six figures, then you could have purchased a ticket and got a good seat in person to see it. Regardless of whether you watch it from home or in person, one thing is for sure and that is we are all in for a great night of entertainment!
Now the big question is, who is going to win, Floyd or Manny? Both fighters are extremely fast, talented and highly skilled. They are elite fighters in a class of their own. In other words, we think Manny and Floyd are pretty much equal, so the fight can go either way. Plus, both fighters have beaten many of the top boxers in their class.
With all of that said, let's answer three big questions. We will answer the one above (who will win), will there be a second fight between the two and will Floyd retire after the fight?
Floyd Vs Manny: Who Will Win
This fight is scheduled for 12 rounds, but with both fighters being the best in the sport, will it really go the full 12 rounds? It could very well go 12 rounds, but we think it will go 10-11 rounds.
We think the fight is going to remain very close and tight during the first 6-7 rounds, but after that one of the two will start slowly coming out on top, and then will score a KO or TKO. You are probably wondering who we think will score the victory, and that person is Floyd Mayweather.
We think that Floyd will start to wear Manny down and by the 10th or 11th round, Manny won't have much gas in the tank, sort of speaking, and Floyd will capitalize on this. We believe that both fighters are just about equal, but we do think Floyd has a slight power advantage, and height advantage, and this will likely be one of the factors that play a role in him winning.
We could be completely wrong and Floyd could be the one worn down by Manny, and Manny could be the one to emerge as the winner and put an end to Mayweather's undefeated streak.
This fight is hard to predict, but we do think Floyd will be the winner.
Floyd vs Manny II: Will It Happen
Regardless of who wins the fight, can we expect to see part II happened? We highly doubt it, unless it were to take place by the end of this year. The truth is that both fighters are aging, and as you know, the older you get in boxing, the harder it is to keep up with other fighters, who just seem to be getting younger. Plus, performance tends to go down and down and down as boxers age. This is actually the case with most athletes, regardless of the sport they are involved in.
Would we like to see part II happen? That depends on tonight's fight and how it goes down. However, we have a feeling it is going to be a great fight and we would probably love seeing it again, but the truth is that it will likely not happened.
We might be wrong and a second fight between the two could very well happened, especially if Floyd loses and wants to avenge the loss. However, if Floyd wins, then the chances of a second fight happening again are slim to none. We think this is due to the possibility of him retiring, as well as giving other fighters a chance of fighting him and trying to beat him.
Will Floyd Retire After Facing Manny
We think there is a good possibility Floyd will retire, win or lose, after he faces Manny. Also, the same can be said for Manny. Both fighters don't really have anything left to prove and what better way to retire than entering and competing in the biggest boxing fight in history?
Only time will tell what these two fighters will do after they have competed against one another.
Enjoy The Fight
There's nothing left to say here except to enjoy the fight! We're sure millions and millions of fans around the world will be tuning in!
