i see the fight with alvarez to be a very thrilling and cagey fight, a chess match at first where they initially feel each other out but as the fight goes on, and if pacquiao is still able to throw an average of 100 punches per round just like he used to do, then alvarez has no chance but get bullied by pacquiao and might either end with a TKO in pacquiao's favor or in a form of a UD.
Pac doesnt have the power anymore. NO one is hurting Canelo except for Martinez. Not only will Pac not stop him, but you have to remember. Margarito was big and slow bum with no skills. This would be pac's first time fighting a prime opponent who is bigger and stronger, and just about as fast. Canelo is very fast, just a TAD bit slower than Floyd, and the Floyd who fought Cotto, although sloppy defensively, was WAAAY Faster than the Floyd who fought Ortiz. Floyd had ww version of the Gatti fight as far as his speed goes.(I know he didnt fight Cotto at ww, but you get what I mean. He weighed in about 150, same as he does at ww on fightnight.)
