They way I see it, and this goes for Mayweather, the minute you step into the ring against Pac you already lost, because he will ALWAYS outscore his opponents by producing a much higher punch output. As soon as you realize this you know you have to try to KO Pac, its the only way.
Manny will always outpunch you, but he is most likely never going to be able to knock you out. However if you do take chances and attack him, chances are really high he will knock you down a few times.
The only way Mayweather can beat him is by KO'ing him before he can TKO you. I think Floyd has always understood this.
Now that they have both fought Shane, Mayweather and Pac look as equal as they ever have.
53 Wins, 3 Losses, 2 Draws, 38 Knockouts.
Over 70% of his wins are knockouts....
uhh well I thought I made it clear I was talking about pure knockouts not TKO's....but on my main point I should have been more clear. When Pac started moving up really high in weight classes, meaning for him into the light weight world.
Aside from Ricky Hatton, the last pure KO for Pacman was back as a Featherweight, against Solis I think
BTW, I have watched every Pacquio fight since 2002. Simply quoting his record is an insult. I know he has 53 wins and 38 KO's. I stand by my statetment, which I have been saying all along since 2008. While impressive he can move up through Light and Welterweights, he does not possess pure Knock you out for the 10 count power against guys these size(unless they are really poor defenders like Hatton)
