I would like to see an upset, because we haven't had that kind of an electric shock in the boxing world for a long time. Yea, we had a shock when Maidana beat Broner, but Broner was not all THAT good in the first place.

Consider that Floyd beats Manny easily, we all know that. I don't even know why people are still interested in that fight. Most Floyd fights are the same, out-box the opponent and win 116-112 or higher on all cards.

Pacquiao-Maidana would be a total war from the opening bell and would bring back the magic of excitement in boxing. It would also be a World Welterweight Championship unification, and I really could not pick a winner. I would lean toward Pacquiao, but Maidana is not an elusive mover like Marquez, Mayweather, or Floyd. Pacquaio-Maidana! How could that be anything BUT a war!?

No, and the one reason because is, Mayweather in my eyes when he fights brawlers he's representing the best of boxing skill, what boxers could be like, and when he beats people using those elite skills, that's the best of boxing on display. If Maidana wins everybody going to think the slugger simply overpowered the boxer, and thats not what boxing is about.

But yeah Maidana vs Pac would be a total war, or would it be. A lot of movement may trouble Maidana like the Khan fight.

Good points,

Manny could move and trouble Maidana with slick boxing. Just about anybody could move and trouble Maidana with slick boxing! However, this has to become a firefight. Manny could probably do more with his versatility and experience. But in a firefight, could Manny still swallow the power of Maidana's punches? Marquez got the KO over Manny, and he was not noted as a big puncher.

Good call on Floyd. He as the slick stylist can adjust and adapt to slugger stances, like many other great boxers of the past-making sluggers look ordinary. A few sluggers have that versatility to adapt. However, many don't. They have tunnel vision a lot of times. when the opponent starts giving angles, jabbing, and moving away, a lot of sluggers can't cut off the ring.

I just would like to see compelling fights... Pac-Bradley was always mediocre to me no matter how much Timmy was pushed as a P4P guy, never passed my eye test with the exception of his JMM win

Money-Pac, Maidana-Bradley, Thurman-Provo, Khan-JMM... "Bring This Wall Down" fights

i wouldnt like to see a maidana upset over floyd. the majority of fans already dispute floyd's actual skill level and prowess, and an upset victory by a slugger like marcos would just add fuel to the fire. people don't respect pure raw technical ability anymore (i.e. rigo, andre ward).

but i do agree pacquiao fighting marcos would be a burn burner. as would thurman pacquiao or porter pacquiao for that matter. call me crazy, but i think thurman would have a reasonable chance of knocking manny out.

Nope...I wouldn't like to see him lose to Marcos because he's so limited as a fighter. That wouldn't be a good look. And the way Mayweather gets discredited I definitely don't want to see him lose to Maidana...or anyone else for that matter...Jack says Broner wasn't all that good, they will say the same about Mayweather. Nah I'll pass on this fairy tale
