A lot of people have been using Floyd Mayweather,JR.’s fights with Marcos Maidana as an indication that Manny Pacquiao will beat Mayweather on May 2nd. The common notion expressed with this train of thought is, that if Maidana was able to hit Mayweather, then Pacquiao, who is much quicker, will hit him more and knock him out, or force him to “run” and lose on points by getting outhustled. These folks are predicting that if Mayweather had to “run” and clinch against Maidana, then he’ll have to do it against Pacquiao even more. I’m here to explain why Maidana is an absolutely useless gauge when predicting what will happen in Mayweather vs Pacquiao, and to give you some points to consider when analyzing the “Fight of the Century”.
