Mayweather does not throw enough punches to open himself up to get hit. There is a reason he doesn't want to fight Pac. He is too defensive to be productive against Pac, he would lose because of getting outworked. Floyd is a great fighter but he has dooooooped a ton of people into believing that he in unbeatable..this is not the case. This fight in particular illustrates this.
See Pac vs Mosley. Mayweather makes Pac look worse than Mosley did. Now add the fact that Floyd lands at a very very high connect % and the fact that Pac has problems with defensive counter punchers and we have Mayweather playing a brilliant game of chess with Pac attempting to play checkers. Two great games on completely different levels..

Not to mention Floyd wont engage leaving Pac confused and looking like shyt like vs Mosley. But that was leg problems right?

He takes on a YOUNG, PRIME, HUNGRY fighter with a belt..."Wow Floyd is taking on the toughest challenge of his career!!!!!!", scream the faithful Floyd followers. The reality is, Ortiz did give up in a fight before (questions linger regarding his heart), he struggled greatly against Peterson (a boxer-counter puncher like Floyd), he swings wide (this is the most important one for me). Floyd will counter Ortiz with ease to win the UD.
Yeah, so did Cotto and he was coming off the 2 worst performances of his career.

The underlying story is that on paper, it looks great for Floyd- taking on such a tough challenger, while the reality is that Ortiz is still pretty green, never, ever fought in a PPV fight before, fighting in "Mayweatherville", having Mayweather's favorite referee in there to keep Floyd safe, and is an easy target for Floyd's right hand. All points to another perceived career-defining win for Mayweather that is full of underlying advantages that are trumpted by the surface features.
No matter who Floyd fights he will be the favorite. He was the opening favorite vs Pac so no matter WHO he steps in the ring with at 147 and below he would be the favorite. These cats use the same shyt every time... Floyd was supposed to win etc etc etc.... well no shyt.
