“I have to go for Mayweather. I think it could go the distance and be won on points. It will be a lot closer than people think, but Mayweather will be too sharp and too quick.”

“Pacquiao wins the fight in a decision. The fight will be long and gruelling and this favours Pacquiao. Mayweather throws a lot of punches. But eventually stamina will be a factor and Pacquiao can take punches.”

“I think we are in for a steep battle in which I’d give Mayweather a very slight edge – 51 to 49 per cent. Why? Mayweather’s bigger and better tactically. He’s like the Mourinho of boxing! He keeps cool and stays focused on his goals. He’s undoubtedly a great fighter and he has a good chance of retiring undefeated. As for Pacquiao, he’ll certainly push forward, look for the knockout. He’s sharp, fast, has knockout power. However, I’d still make Mayweather the slight favourite.”
