Bernard Hopkins has added his commentary to what should be an iconic buildup for Mayweather vs Pacquiao on May 2.
‘The Alien’ in an interview with FightHype — says “Pacquiao will just be target practice for Floyd by round 6.”
“The first 5 or 6 rounds, it’s going to be a back and fourth fight because of Pacquiao’s aggression. But Pacquiao is not the best defensive fighter. Mayweather is going to sharp shoot, and not only is Mayweather going to fight back when he needs to, but after that 6th round, it’s done,” stated future Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins.
“Hey, listen, there will be people that’s so upset because they charging people money, they are going to be so upset because in the second half, it somehow turned into such easy work that they are going to feel like there was some type of corruption or foul play or pollution in the air. They are gonna make up all kinds of excuses (laughing). I believe the second half of these 12 rounds gonna be target practice for Floyd. And it’s going to be a situation where, is he putting a show on just so people can get their monies worth or is it just that easy. That’s my bold statement and I stick by it, now let’s wait 8 to 9 weeks and see what happens,”
