Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao is fired up and motivated. He's been in plenty of big fights, facing guys like Ricky Hatton, Juan Manuel Marquez, Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito, Shane Mosley, Timothy Bradley Jr. and Oscar De La Hoya just to name a few. As big as those fights were, who will argue against the fact that his fight on May 2nd against Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be his biggest? Of course it will be. Now Pacquiao has picked apart many great fighters inside the ring, exposing them, finding their flaws and seeing his arm raised in victory often, but does he see any weaknesses to capitalize on the pound for pound king, Mayweather?
The answer from Pacquiao is "Yes", he does see weaknesses. At the start of this week Pacquiao told ANC News that he witnessed flaws in Mayweather's two outings vs. Marcos Maidana.
Pacquiao stated to the news program: "I saw his weaknesses in the Maidana fights".
So does Pacman feel he can capitalize on these weaknesses?
Pacquiao's answer: "Yes, I’m confident I can catch him.
All I need to do is train hard."
Pacquiao reportedly will make $80 million while Mayweather will make $120 million. Talk about crazy amounts of cash! Win or lose, both walk away rich beyond belief.
