Is not Manny Pacquiao Faster and More Powerful Puncher Than Mayweather?

(Picture on left taken from YouTube's "Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather teaser")

Pinoy Blogger submitted these comments on Edwin Espejo's post "Pacquiao Watch: lole's take" on the website Asian Correspondent with the page Chronicles from Mindanao by a Mindanao Journalist...

"You answer these questions and see where it goes:  Did Cotto not defeat Mosley (in) 12 rounds (by)decision? Did Pacquiao not beat and batter bloodied Cotto in 11 rounds with 2 knockdowns to boot? Was Mosley ever knocked down or badly beaten by Mayweather? Did Mayweather nearly got KO'd (on)2nd round (against Mosley)? Were there more than a thousand punches Manny Pacquiao threw against Joshua Clottey (that forced him to overly defend himself from a possible knockout)?  (Were there faster and more telling punches that Manny delivered against Dela Hoya and Hatton as against Mayweather's? - remember, Floyd won a 12 round decision over Dela Hoya vs. a badly battered DLH surrender after 8 rounds against Manny;  and Floyd KO'd Hatton on 10th while Manny did it much earlier on 2nd round).   Now who's faster and a more powerful puncher who deserves no less than 60:40 share on a Manny Pacquiao vs Money Mayweather fight (and the P4P title)?"

After answering all of above questions, is it appropriate for Yahoo sports writer Kevin Lole to put Mayweather as  P4P boxing champion and carelessly disregard the official world P4P King Manny Pacquiao?  Other than being for American and IRS interests, is there another possible cause for Kevin Lole taking this stance?

If Mayweather still avoids fighting Pacquiao on share issues or other alibis notwithstanding the latter's acceptance to undergo Olympic Drug testing criteria before the fight, as the former earlier insisted, what does that make of Floyd Mayweather Jr.?  Is he not more afraid now of a potential loss to Manny Pacquiao of his immaculate record of no losses more than anything else?  Is it fair to allow him to dupe Manny into accepting a lower percentage share on the purse?  Who has the real ball now?  Are your answers enough reasons why Floyd, Jr. is to date, still avoiding Manny Pacquiao?  What do you say?

  1. No wonder until now, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has avoided Manny Pacquiao for a number of questionable reasons. Do you agree?
