Saturday’s fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao promises to go down in the history books. But for which fighter?
Mayweather enters the showdown at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas with a perfect 47-0 record and still is the favorite over Pacquiao. The fight is a must-watch, not just because of the stakes, but because the two boxers showcase very different styles.
As George Foreman III, son of the legendary former heavyweight champion, explains, Mayweather is a defensive fighter who will use counterpunches to exploit his opponent’s mistakes. Pacquiao, meanwhile, likes to go on the offensive, relying on power and footwork to wear down his opponent.
So who will come out on top in this epic showdown? Watch NESN’s Ashley Allen get the scoop from Foreman in the video above.
