Why is Pacquiao exposed now? I'm just sayin...Marquez has always given Pac fits. The size wasn't a factor like people thought it would be, and Marquez was actually bigger. This is boxing, and some guys just have a wrong style for a fighter. Vernon Forrest was able to give a prime Shane Mosley fits. Marquez has always been a tremendous fighter and people have always underrated him. I think it's kind of faulty logic just to say that because Marquez got dominated by Floyd and Pac has problems with Floyd that Floyd dominates Pacquiao. That logic doesn't always hold true. Of course the fight will never ever get made because BOTH sides posturing. It's been literally three years this fight has been in the making, but still no fight. Ben don't need to ask Mayweather if he's going to fight Pac because it's always going to be the same god damn answer every time. I can't stand either Pac or Mayweather, and don't know who I would cheer for if they got in the ring. I'd love to see a double knock out.
Pac is exposed to the conventional typical casual fan as solely not on Mayweathers level. This was the fight to compare against Mayweather's fight against Marquez. Roach even stated this fight was to one up Mayweather and that Marquez will be be knocked out in less than 6 rounds. He stated Mayweather didn't KO Marquez and that if Manny can do that it will just prove that he is the much better fighter. Pacman isn't good with fighters who move, box, use his aggression against him, confuse him, frustrates him and counters him especially an unorthodox styled fighter. Style makes fights but what happens when Manny goes up against a boxer who can adapt to any style thats in the ring against him. Mayweather will wipe the floor with Pacman and even some really HUGE Pacman fans I know stated that they are now thinking Mayweather will beat Pacman up something terrible.
Arum needs to cash in now...this man needs to leave boxing. Anything further halting this fight will just hurt its stock like what happened last saturday, the sock def took a drop now. People more and more are questioning Pacman's ability to match Mayweather. The outlook on most people was that Marquez was old, out of his prime, too small for Pac, and too weak for Pac and the thought he was going to get destroyed only made matters worse for Manny when people expected him to spark him out early. Pacman is being looked upon another level and will get treated as such when he doesn't perform with excellence. A double knockout??? not gonna happen, maybe a Manny getting knocked out. If he fights Mayweather likes that and goes head hunting all night he will be getting a "pizza face" very easily.
