Juan Manuel Marquez has faced both Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, with the Mexican legend going toe-to-toe with the former four times in his career. He has quality insight based on first hand experience and he broke down the fight for Fight Hub TV.

"Pacquiao has the power. Maybe he can change the entire fight in one moment, but I think Floyd is very smart," Marquez said. "He has the perfect style to win this fight I think. Mayweather uses counter-punching very well, and I think Mayweather wins this fight."

In terms of breaking it down into categories though, he had it tied. He had Pacquiao having the edge in power, speed, heart, chin, while he thinks Floyd has the footwork, stamina, ring IQ, and x-factor going for him. In the end though, he still picked Mayweather to win.

"It's a tough fight for both fighters, but I think Mayweather has the perfect style to beat Pacquiao. He's smart, he's a counter puncher."
