Opinion is undoubtedly split on the mega-fight which will take place on May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, but Tyson is fairly adamant that he knows who will win.
Despite critics suggesting that the bout is taking place five years too late, it is still a hugely intriguing fight given that Mayweather’s seemingly flawless defense will be put up against the quick and powerful offense of Pacquiao.
The unbeaten American has never faced a threat such as that posed by Pac-Man, and so it will be very important to see how he deals with it in the opening rounds as if he falls behind, he will have to come out of his shell and take the fight to his rival.
In contrast, it could turn out to be a defensive masterclass which sees Pacquiao picked off at will, and given that he has already been knocked out by a counter-puncher in Juan Manuel Marquez, the Filipino could be at risk of having his flaws exposed again.
Mayweather doesn’t possess that kind of power any more, but there is no denying his boxing skills. However, does ‘Iron Mike’ think that will be enough?
