If the fight happened in 2010, it would have been more explosive but the same guy would have won. His jab, reach advantage, footspeed, and spoiling tactics would have given Manny problems even back then.
It would have been a much more enjoyable fight imo. Mostly cuz mayweather was sharper, faster and still had his legs back then. He wouldn't have needed to use spoiling tactics so much, and coupled with the fact manny was more reckless but also much quicker with his movement at that time, it could have been a real showcase of floyd's talent with the possibility of him having to survive a few rough spots. We really got 1/4 the fight it could have been and paid nearly 2x as much.

I would have loved to see 2007 Mayweather vs 2009 Pacquiao. That would have been a fight.

I didn't think Mayweather wasn't particularly too impressive against Manny despite beating him. He beat Manny for sure but Mayweather wasn't overly impressive himself either.
