Pacquiao could basically just move in and out, circle Berto, and pepper him with shots at will. The one or two times a round that Berto exploded, Pacquiao could probably do his best damage counter punching. I don't see Berto's chances against Pac at all.

Berto's style works against fighters that can't handle his physical talent, but has proven to not work very well against fighters anywhere above a C+ or so level.
I see Berto's handspeed and power presenting problems for Pacquaio. It definitely cause him to think twice before leaping in like a ninja monkey, let's be honest.

Pac's prone to getting hit by uppercuts, a forte of Berto's.

But on the otherhand your right about Berto's footwork being slack, however fighting southpaws b2b has contributed towards him looking sloppy. His stamina has improved now that he's got a proper nutritional diet and conditioning system in place.

In all honesty it be a great fight for the most part, if Berto gets past Ortiz. If Pac beats Berto I would rank it above his wins over Margarito, past prime Mosley, Clottey and a damaged Cotto in all honesty.
