Holyfield Gives His Breakdown on Pacquiao-Mayweather

By Edward Chaykovsky

During a recent interview, former four-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield discussed the welterweight mega-fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. For years, the boxing public has been waiting for the fight to happen. At the moment, both boxers appear to be on separate paths in the first half of the year. Mayweather will return on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Pacquiao will return on June 9th in Las Vegas. Neither fighter has a finalized opponent. Holyfield gave his thoughts on the fight.

"It will be a great fight. It's hard to say, because both guys are so gifted and so capable of winning it from two different angles. You can't count either of them out. Pacquiao doesn't quit and Floyd is always able to make the adjustments ... we've never seen him in any kind of trouble. No one has ever put pressure on Floyd. He has always had it, but now he's fighting a guy who puts it on everyone. At this age there's a change in them that means anything could happen. It goes down to what's going to happen on the day and what each individual can pull out on the day, how they'll deal with the pressure on them for each fighter to fight that last great fight," Holyfield told Gulf News.

At the end of the day it's Mayweather who with his exceptional defense is so hard to hit. Hatton put it on the mark, "I couldn't hit that f%@#&# with a handful of confetti". Pacman, on the other hand has…
