Why Floyd Mayweather will beat Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, in the anxious final seconds before Saturday’s opening bell, will be staring at the best opponent they have ever been in the ring with. That more than anything makes the fight difficult to read.
The fight itself is a toss-up. Cynically, I think Pacquiao will have to beat Mayweather decisively to get a decision but I believe he can.

He will never be the one-man wrecking crew who retired Oscar De La Hoya and nearly decapitated Ricky Hatton but he is still a blend of speed and power unlike Mayweather has faced. And he won’t be broken mentally.
