Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Video: Cain Velasquez says Floyd has power advantage over Manny

New, comments

UFC champion Cain Velasquez is picking Floyd Mayweather. He also says Floyd hits stronger than Manny Pacquiao.

Note: Unfortunately due to the high volume of spammers we have been forced to close comments on this post.

In a somewhat interesting and surprising answer, Cain Velasquez says Floyd Mayweather will not only have advantages in multiple facets of the game, he also will have a power edge over Manny Pacquiao. Watch the clip above as the UFC heavyweight champion broke down the boxing mega-fight with Fight Hub.

"You know what, even though Floyd doesn't throw so many punches, but I've seen him knock somebody out while backing up. That shows a lot of power, so I give that edge to him."

While his Mayweather prediction isn't surprising by any means, saying he's the harder hitter is a bit debatable. After all, almost half of his wins are decisions with very few knockdowns, and most of his stoppage victories have come very early in his career.

Overall, Velasquez pegged Floyd as being the better fighter in almost all the categories apart from speed and stamina. Do you agree with his assessment of the bout?
