MANILA, Philippines—As the fight of the century draws so much anticipation, boxing legends have taken their turn in throwing their two cents in.

This time it’s Mike Tyson, the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history.


Tyson said Mayweather’s defensive counter-punching style would give him trouble against the loose-cannon Pacquiao.

“He has to fight. If he’s not going to score, he is going to lose the round,” Tyson said in his YouTube channel.

Tyson added that two fighters who gave Pacquiao trouble, Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez, both “threw over a hundred punches a round” and “Floyd doesn’t throw near a hundred punches per round.”

“He is more of a scientific fighter. He plots a lot, sits around and he poses. And this guy (Pacquiao) is all over the place, moving in,” the bad boy of boxing said.

Backing up his claims on Mayweather’s style, Tyson said that Pacquiao could negate Money’s style through his constant movement and use of the ring.

“This guy’s (Pacquiao) in perpetual motion, he’s all over the god-damn place,” Tyson said.
