Pacquiao: I Can Make Mayweather Stand and Fight

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs) is confident in his ability to make Floyd Mayweather Jr (46-0, 26 KOs), the WBC/WBA welterweight and junior middleweight champion, stand and fight.

Pacquiao, who faces Chris Algieri on November 22nd in Macau, says Mayweather is too defensive of a fighter and moves around too much. The eight division champion would press the action and feels his style and aggression would give Mayweather no choice but to plant himself in one spot to fight.

"I know how to fight him. I know what I’m doing. I know what his style is all about. So, if he don’t want to create action. I know how to create action. I know that I can make him stand and fight. Listen, this is me. I punch, and punch, and punch. This is boxing. If you don’t punch, you don’t deserve to win. For me, that has always been boxing," Pacquiao told Jerry Izenberg of The Star Ledger.

[QUOTE=Boxing Goat;14908318]Floyd hasn't had a legit KO in 7 years.[/QUOTE] Floyd is a master boxer not a puncher. Pacquiao on the other hand is a puncher who hasn't had a KO win in 5 years.

Maidana is a tougher fight for Floyd , Manny will be easy you will all see . No fighter smaller than Floyd , a few pounds lighter than Floyd , can beat him .

[QUOTE=mrjoeblive;14910628]My thoughts exactly. He will run right into the right hand left hook combo and get ktfo.[/QUOTE] Keep dreaming. Floyd's only chance of getting the KO is if Pac puts his hands down and looks at the ref.
