Floyd Mayweather Jr. versus Juan Manuel Marquez: Another Sugar Ray Leonard versus Wilfred Benitez in the making!

Yes boxing fans, that's the way it's gonna be, and the boxing world shall be treated with a fine boxing match. These two will showcase all the technical skills of a future hall of famer that is Pretty Boy Floyd and all the best counter punching skills of the current No. 2 pound for pound boxer in the world, Juan Manuel Marquez.

The early rounds shall be spent mostly with probing jabs and counter punching techniques by both fighters as they are supposedly the best in this field.

And just like the Leonard-Benitez fight, the counter punching JMM shall keep up with Mayweather due to his masterful defense in the first six rounds. PBF will find it a little hard to find his mark as stamina and strength are not yet a decisive factor in the fight.

As the fight would move on to the later rounds, both boxers will be measured by being forced to go nearly the distance. They both have a good idea as to the timing of each others' punches, the PBF edge in ring savvy and natural talent shall come to fore though.

By the eighth round, PBF punches will find its mark and JMM shall feel the strength and savagery of the Money Man.

Round Ten shall be the most likely point when the accumulated punches of the Money Man would make its toll on the aging body of JMM.

The rest would be history as this writer predicts a KO in the 10th round. The aging JMM shall fall. Perhaps twice, before finally calling it a night!

PBF shall meet the winner of the Paquiao-Cotto fight next year. And should that be the Pacman, expect the fight when his contract with Bob Arum would have expired and the Golden Boy shall be his new manager.
