I'd actually agree and say that Manny's hand speed probably is faster than Floyd's, but is his brain?
Don't get me wrong, Pacman has awesome physical attributes and the way he's moved up the weight classes is nothing short of shocking (hehe...?) but Floyd has shown time and time again he not only out fights his opponents but he out thinks them.
Manny is great at what he does but he hasn't really shown much adaptation or improvisation, okay he beat Shane fair enough. But people were calling Shane shot before he fought Floyd! Then Manny goes on to beat him? That doesn't prove a lot in my book.
Pac beating Margarito or Clottey also proves nothing in my opinion, Juan Manuel Marquez had Paccy twice from the way I score those fights. Maybe I'd give Pac the first bout but definitely not the second....
In all fairness it's pointless trying to apply logic to the hypothetical fight of the century because sadly it looks more and more unlikely it's ever going to come into fruition.....
