ALTHOUGH Manny Pacquiao hasn’t taken an inside the distance victory since 2009, when he put in an astonishing performance against Miguel Cotto [pictured], he is generally deemed to be the more explosive puncher than Floyd Mayweather.

That is because of his past track record of hammering top-level opposition. Even in recent years the Filipino has still managed to pummel some of his victims while going the distance. He has though developed a habit of dominating a fight but letting his opponent off the hook rather than going for the finish.

Mayweather meanwhile is not generally inclined to take risks. He coolly does what he need to do to win (and not necessarily more). But he can be dangerous. He took out Victor Ortiz in 2011, when his opponent looked to the referee and Floyd seized the opportunity to knock him out.
