Terry Norris says Manny Pacquiao can never beat Floyd Mayweather in the ring – Boxing news
Terry Norris, who is a former four-time world champion in the junior middleweight division, has passed on a staggering statement in which he remarked that the eight-division world champion and the current World Boxing Organisation Welterweight World Champion (Super Champion), Manny ‘Pac-Man’ Pacquiao, can never beat Floyd Mayweather in the ring.
The 44-year-old retired American boxer, Norris, who is more commonly known as Terrible, in his exclusive interview with Jenna J & Geoffrey Ciani of On the Ropes Boxing Radio stated there is no way Pacquiao can beat the undefeated American legend, Mayweather.
The Fighting Pride of Philippines, Pacquiao, who holds a record of winning 53 of his 58 professional fights (2 Draws), with 38 of his wins coming by the way of a knockout, is currently rated as the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world. However, Norris believes Pacquiao doesn’t have the right amount of speed and power to beat Mayweather.
Mayweather, who holds a perfect record of winning all of his 42 professional fights, including 26 of his wins coming by the way of a knockout, is considered by many as one of the most difficult boxers to hit in the ring. Therefore, Norris claimed it would be a very easy night for Mayweather, if the two ever meet in the ring.
Norris told On the Ropes Boxing Radio, “No. Manny Pacquiao can’t beat him. There is no way Pacquiao can beat Mayweather! He comes forward, but he’s not that strong. He’s not like a real power puncher. He’s not as fast as Floyd, so Floyd will be able to outmaneuver him, throw different combinations, use his speed, and outmaneuver him. I believe that right there would be a very easy fight for Floyd.”
“You need somebody strong, somebody bold, and somebody that’s real aggressive and just throws a lot of punches, and goes in there in the best shape of their life and ready to go,” Norris added.
The Pretty Boy, Mayweather, was formerly rated as the number one pound-for-pound boxer in the world before he was removed from the ranking due to his inactivity. Thus a bout between Pacquiao and Mayweather will decide who the pound-for-pound king really is.
