    Mayweather Camp could say whatever they want as long as there is still time left. On fight night it will become different. If they think Pacquiao is an easy opponent they have to discern twice because there is no turning back for Floyd Jr. I just hope Mayweathet Jr. will give a good fight and will not ride his bicycle atop the ring. Let’s get it on! Floyd Jr. knocking out Pacquiao? Nah! this assessment is hilarious!

    I really like Abel he is a cool dude and the right guy for GGG. I also got to agree with Jenna that if the fight is close that it will go to Pacman

        think again, if Paquiao wins there will be a rematch and more money to be made off these two and then the possibility of a rubber match Las vegas is dying a death they need the big fights. The world knows if Mayweather wins a close fight the rematch simply wont happen
