Default floyd being past his prime is an advantage for pacquiao..

like freddie roach said floyd doesnt use his legs anymore

floyd doesnt use combinations anymore, his work rate has decreased, his speed isn't the same how it used to be.

apart from that floyd will be 34 years old by the time this fight will happen..they werent ready for him before, roach saw something in the mosley fight.

either way a past prime floyd still beats manny, but is floyd being past his prime an advantage for manny? like if floyd was in his prime he would massacre pacquiao gatti style, but right now since floyd is past his prime this match-up becomes a bit closer

manny was past prime since the first bloody EM fight. that's how *****s think right? like how they said hatton and cotto were past prime after losing only 1 fight before they fought manny. so it's floyd who's fighting a past prime manny

freddie roach also said pac would knock cotto out

he also said he would knock clottey out

he aldo said manny is afraid of needles

he also said the fight between manny and floyd is almost done when ellerbe said there even taking offers

he says alot of things

lol even floyd said the fans didnt want to see him run and dodge and come straight ahead and he did that....

and when has floyd ever thrown combinations...i must have missed that part of his career..

when has floyd ever had a high work rate





matter of fact what are u talking about?

Don't think he's saying floyd is past his prime. He's just saying he fights a different way since moving up in weight. If that means being flat-footed then that's what it is!!!

I didn't like how Pacquiao looked vs Clottey. He got hit about 70 times only and his face looked like he was in a war. No flaming and you might have been sarcastic but I do believe Pacquiao is a bit past his prime. When you have Mosley having his worst compubox round of 3/48 of his career, vs a not even defensive Floyd, he was aggressive but still cautious, then it's hard to think Floyd is even slightly past it. I think Pacquiao is the one who is past prime tbh.

Margarito and Clottey softened Cotto up, it's not rocket science. Not to mention Cotto has always taken horrible shots vs Torres, Corley, and Judah even before his fights vs Margarito and Clottey. So it's no tlike Pacquiao was going to fight some fighter that has never been rocked badly before and even out on his feet vs Corley.

+1. on one hand these ppl always make a joke about roach's interviews. on the other hand they believe his predictions as gospel when it favors floyd or when it actually happens.
