Mayweather vs Pacquiao Picks Analysis: Floyd has been rocked a half dozen times in his 47 bouts and was out on his feet from a straight-right to the temple from Sugar Shane Mosley in 2010. Pacquiao was knocked unconscious by a physically enhanced Juan Manuel Marquez with a perfectly timed straight-right to the chin in late 2012. Floyd has never been down as a pro but he doesn’t seem to trust his chin as much as Pacquiao. Mayweather took a 2-year hiatus from boxing after he beat Ricky Hatton but he really hasn’t been quite the same fighter since his return. Mayweather rarely puts his beard in harms way which makes ESPN2 News panel question his overall punch resistance. Mayweather vs Pacquiao Odds have Mayweather as a -210 favorite (Bet $210 to win $100) at SPORTSBOOK.ag
ESPN2 News Bottom Line: Both men take a pretty good shot but the edge here goes to Pacquiao. The “Pac-Man” dares foes to take a swipe at him as he attacks with ferocity. Pacquiao got iced by a “juiced up” Juan Manual Marquez because he impaled himself a punch leaping forward. It’s conceivable that he could get caught with a bomb leaping in against Mayweather but “Money” doesn’t punch like Marquez did.
