    The reason I see two possible scenarios is a LITTLE like how I view Leonard vs Duran 1 and Leonard vs Duran 2. It is who imposes their style and game plan the best on that night. Leonard let his anger toward Duran's bullying get the best of him in fight number 1 where he stood and traded. Maybe Floyd wont make that mistake or maybe Pac's style will force him into a corner where he is outworked. Maybe Floyd, like Leonard in fight number 2 against Duran, uses his abilities and circles and applies that great defense and counters Pac's every attempt to corner him. That's why I like this fight the most, to see who really imposes their style on the other. The outcome I would like best is a draw where each guy imposes his style in a give and take and most fans from both sides are okay with a draw. Then the rematch!

There are enough variables to all aspects of either fighter to propel one of them to a win. History is littered with guys like Pac beating guys like Floyd and guys like Floyd beating guys like Pac, otherwise, we just have them fight on paper and declare who is the best in every division and fighters would never have to fight. No outcome of the fight would surprise me. If I woke up the next day with my head crazy-glued to the carpet, then I would be surprised.
      That's funny cuz I think you said the exact same thing on another article yesterday. I guess we all repeat ourselves if we stay on one topic for too long. I suppose you have a point. It's just that using logical standpoint and using the history of their fights, I don't give Pac a good chance of winning. Of course anything could happen. I just see Floyd having the majority of the advantages is all, it just irks me how much diehard Pac fans think that Pac's gonna steamroll a guy like Floyd, who's never been remotely close to being steamrolled before. It's preposterous to me.

          Oh and I love the comparison to this fight to the Leonard - Duran fight. The styles are remarkably different just like back then.

            People aren't considering how big of a factor Pacquiao being southpaw is

            Its a huge advantage, Joe Goossen breaks it down here

              Power is going to be the key to Pacquiao's victory, he will definitely be more busier than Floyd, if he punches hard enough to keep Floyd on the backfoot I believe he can outwork Floyd to a split decision. The last time Floyd fought a southpaw he ended up injuring his right hand, he will be throwing that right cross a lot against Pacquiao and unlike Guerrero, Pacquiao has the cardio to be effective for a full 12 rounds.

                  And Pac is not just a southpaw, he is the greatest southpaw in the history of boxing. So...I'm imagining...Floyd's looking a bit like...

                      There has been very little talk about how much May hates fighting southpaws and how Mayweather Sr. always said they are bad for May Jr.'s style. That will be the equalizer IMO.
