Pacquiao/Mayweather PREDICTION Thread

I'm hoping Pacquiao wins, but I really don't see how outside of knocking Mayweather down early.

I don't think Pacquiao can afford to get behind Mayweather really at any point in the fight. Once that happens I think its all but over. Mayweather is quite possibly the greatest defensive boxer of all-time and one of the best conditioned fighters of all-time as well. You have to assume he's pretty much winning rounds 9-12, so I think Manny has to dominate the first eight rounds just to have a chance.

I don't see him doing that without putting Mayweather on the canvas and I don't see that happening.

I say Mayweather wins it 117-111 going away.

I heard (on a talk show) the head of one of Las Vegas' sports books say that the percentage of bettors laying money on Pacquiao to win is "significantly higher" than the percentage of people betting on Hillary Clinton to win the Democratic Party nomination in 2016. That's some seriously lopsided hatred.

That said, of course I think Mayweather will win. I'd like to see him be beaten like one of his girlfriends, but I don't see that happening.

Barring a rematch, this'll likely the last boxing match I'll watch in my lifetime. (Remember when ANY Tyson or Holyfield fight had hype this?)

As for who wins, Mayweather destroys.

so they both make 100´s of millions on one fight, were does all that money come from, are there really that many people who wants to pay money to see a boxing fight in this age ? i belived boxing died when tyson quit ?

For me it unofficially died with Lennox Lewis' retirement following Lewis-Klitschko. 2003 was a long while ago.

I'm with you. I'm shocked that so many people bought this fight and paid what they did to see it. It's 2015, and I thought boxing had been exposed for the sham that it is. the fact that people are actually predicting split decisions just highlights the absurdity of the whole thing. It's a disgrace that people in America stand in line to spend hundreds of dollars to watch two ungodly wealthy people try to punch each other.
