With the Big Day clash between world famous top boxers Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather coming on May 2 this year at Las vegas, the fans world over are glued to any predictions flashed on the Internet.
Seizing the opportunity, Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has joined world of crazy predictions vying for Mayweather’s win. The UK promoter of boxing sports said the Filipino’s aggressiveness in later rounds may diminish.
“At first I was thinking of Mayweather late stoppage or Pacquiao on points but if you’re going to push me for, I’d go with Mayweather late stoppage, round 11,” Hearn said in a “Fight Hype” interview on YouTube.
“Pacquiao is a quality fighter. Pacquiao is going to be desperate to win and he will work tirelessly throughout the fight to try and press Mayweather. And that’s I think Mayweather gets the stoppage.”
Hearn reasoned out his prediction saying Pacquiao has no choice but to make the undefeated American to get the knockout in the late rounds.
