De La Hoya: Mayweather-Pacquiao Happens, Floyd will Win
By Mark Vester
The President of Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar De La Hoya, expects the mega-fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. to take place. Twice the sides have negotiated and twice the negotiations fell through, but De La Hoya feels there is too much money involved for the fight not to happen. Pacquiao comes back on May 7 against Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather is dealing with a few legal issues before he resumes his boxing career.
"I believe that fight will take place," De La Hoya said to Reuters. "I believe Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao understand that it has to take place. They are the best fighters out there and I feel they both really want this fight to happen. When the time comes, people will enjoy a tremendous fight because styles make fights."
If Mayweather and Pacquiao lock up, De La Hoya is backing Floyd to win.
"I see Floyd Mayweather winning and I say that not only as an ex-fighter and a promoter but as a student of the game. I really love dissecting styles, studying styles and Mayweather has a style to beat anybody. He calculates his punches and his timing. When he is ready to punch with power, he always connects in the right place. There is a lot of thinking behind the strategy of winning a fight and Mayweather has to be the best at that," De La Hoya said.
There's no telling who will win there's ****s to land on Floyd all the time and mannys the same but comparing fighters that they both beat some easier then the other one did don't matter it's not gonna tell you…Comment by LeadUppercut on 03-03-2011
