During a recent interview with scribe Scoop Malinowski, Mexican trainer Ignacio “Nacho” Beristain gave his opinion on a possible fight between welterweight superstars Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. Nacho's main fighter, Juan Manuel Marquez, lost lopsided twelve round decision to Mayweather in 2009. He did much better against Pacquiao, going to a draw in 2004 and losing a controversial split decision in 2008. Marquez and Pacquiao will clash for a third time on November 12.
But styles make fights. And Pacquiao's style will be too much for Mayweather, says Nacho.
”It won’t be an easy fight but Pacquiao will win the fight. Pacquiao will definitely win. I know very well Pacquiao. I’ve seen him fight many times. He’s very good. And everybody picks Mayweather to win the fight because he wins so much against easy fighters, but Pacquiao is just too tough, too strong," Nacho said.
