Fight Outcome Analysis

Let’s be honest people, there will not be a draw in this fight. Sure, Mayweather and Bob Arum undoubtedly would love for this bout to turn into a memorable epic affair that warrants an immediate rematch, but no one – and I do mean no one – wants to see a draw in this long-awaited matchup – and I don’t see it happening either.

While Manny Pacquiao has seen two of his fights end in a draw, his last draw came almost exactly seven years ago against Juan Manuel Marquez so I believe the likelihood of a draw happening in this bout is pretty much, slim to none.

I personally would love nothing more than to see the ‘Pac-Man’ knock Mayweather the ‘F’ out, but my ‘head’ says that the likelihood of that happening is almost as improbable as a draw taking place.

If you like Pacquiao to win, my best guess is that he will win by a split decision as a +325 underdog. The Filipino superstar has won 19 fights via decision so there’s plenty of history backing that selection.

If I’m betting on Mayweather, I’d take the unanimous decision route at -160. ‘Money’ Mayweather has won three of his last five fights and five of his last eight fights overall via unanimous decision and last knocked out his opponent way back in 2009 when he dispatched the unheralded Robert Guerrero in the fourth round.

Betting Analysis

I really like Many Pacquiao to win the first few rounds of this fight as he aggressively looks to find holes in Mayweather’s defense while the polar opposite will be true for the ‘Money Man’. Mayweather will likely try to decipher Pacquaio’s game plan early on before getting a bit more offensive in the middle rounds of this bout.

I’m going with a pick that says Pacquiao wins three of the first four rounds with Mayweather winning three of the next four to send this bout into the ninth round dead even.

As much as I hate to admit it, I think Mayweather’s defense will improve as the fight goes on, making him the favorite to win three of the final four rounds. With this bout tied going into the ninth round, I think anything is possible depending on how the previous eight rounds play out. If Mayweather has fallen behind on the scorecards and is a bit desperate to catch up, he could expose himself to a potential knockout. If Pacquiao is behind, he will press the action even more in an effort to ‘catch’ Mayweather with a knockout shot.

Draw Analysis

As I stated earlier, I just don’t see a draw happening no matter how many rose-colored glasses I try putting on.

Round Group Analysis

Well, you got my group round analysis a few paragraphs back, but to recount, I like the Pac-Man early and Floyd Mayweather in the middle rounds. The final four rounds however, is anyone’s guess.

Will the Fight go the Distance?

*FIGHT GOES THE DISTANCE YES: -325
*FIGHT GOES THE DISTANCE NO: +210

Fight Analysis

If a knockout occurs in this bout, it will definitely come from the stronger Manny Pacquiao, although I just don’t see that happening against Floyd Mayweather’s unrivaled defensive skills.

If Pacquiao ‘baits’ Mayweather into a street fight, a knockout very well could happen, though I’d say the likelihood of that happening is slim at best.
