Manny Pacquiao Vs Floyd Mayweather Will This Be The Biggest Fight In Boxing History? https://www.youtube.com...

First off, I would like to thank you for this opportunity to debate.

I would disagree with your belief that this fight will be the biggest in boxing history. While the purse of the fight is assured to be nothing less than huge, that is not the fight, but rather the money earned by the fighters. If by terms of excitement, then I still disagree. Both fighter (especially Pacquiao) are out of their primes. Pacquiao has not finished a fight since 2008 and Mayweather has not finished a fight since 2011. {1} {2}

Also, weight is a factor. Both fighters are approximately 147 pounds {3}, and the smaller they are, the less likely a knockout is.

"while not the only factor, more strength can mean more speed and more mass. All of that together will make you more powerful as long as the added muscle isn't just for show (needs to be functional muscle). If you strength train, ensure you're throwing some body weight exercises into the mix as well. Total control of your body is what you're looking for and the ability to explosively move the muscles that matter."{4}

These guys have a smaller amount of mass, which means a smaller amount of strength. Smaller strength than average means less chance of a knockout or even a few good shots. The smaller the guys, the smaller the power. power usually means exciting fights, but the two are quite small and as stated before 147 pounds.

That is all for now.
