It seems like since the beginning of time true boxing Fans have been debating over who they think would win the Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. dream match-up. With Pacquiao back in the limelight thanks to his weekend routing of Brandon Rios in Macau, China, the argument of which fighter (Pacman or Money) is also back on the lips and minds of sporting enthusiasts everywhere. In a recent and ongoing online poll conducted by the Los Angeles Times, readers were asked to vote on : Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao: Who would win?
At the time of writing this, out of 2,297 votes so far counted, Pacman takes 63.3% (1,454 votes) of the confidence vote, while Mayweather received 36.7% (843 votes). In this poll and at this time, Pacquiao is the clear winner by a substantial margin.
These early results certainly aren't scientific, and they are open to interpretation or whatever spin you might like. Also keep in mind the voting poll is still open, so fans of either fighter can still rock the vote. You be the judge of what you think of the numbers thus far - I am not here to persuade you either way. What I can tell you from it is only my feelings which are that this fight must happen, because if you are Floyd you want to make sure you change the fans opinions - and if you are Manny you have to feel encouraged by these numbers and want to fufill your fans' expectations.
