EXCLUSIVE Naseem Hamed makes the case for controversy between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao

Hamed analyses the Mayweather-Pacquiao superfight

THE interest is building day by day for the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao showdown.

In my eyes and in my heart, I don’t think there’s anyone right now who can truly beat Mayweather. But age might soon start to catch up with him.

What is also interesting about this fight is that Manny is a fast starter who will come out firing on all cylinders. But Floyd is not a fast starter; he likes to get behind his jab, employ a bit of movement, pick up the pace and then start going through the gears. That might be a mistake because Pacquiao will come out very aggressive in the early rounds.
