Inside the fight

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

The long-anticipated fight between unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. and record eight-division champion Manny Pacquiao on May 2 is expected to be a memorable clash of Mayweather's precise punching and speedy defense against the aggressive attack of the similarly well-conditioned Pacquiao. Each have established signature moves.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Feint and Punch

Mayweather's rapid head movement allows him to tempt opponents to throw a punch, only to leave themself open to one of his quick punches, as happens here against Marcos Maidana. Not only did the Argentinian miss Mayweather entirely, he was left further discouraged by absorbing a hard right to the face.
