His defense vs trout was great but not sustainable, it tired him out after only 6 rounds, with Pacquaio he would be tired after 4, and once he stops moving it will turn into a Margarito type fight. Pacquaio has greater 'snap' than Canelo and has more surprise and shock in his punches, they are much more difficult to avoid and see, the only thing I could imagine keeping Canelo up much like Margarito is his large weight advantage. Footwork, speed, stamina and potentially power all belong to Pacquaio in this fight... once Pacquaio survives the first half it's game over as long as he stays focused.

Canelo had a semi-close fight with Trout, and this was the guy who was throwing 'air' jabs all day long... Canelo would be getting hit by straight lefts all day and that would sap his energy away much more effectively than Trouts weak offense.
I stoped reading at `however he lacks combination punching`
