HBO analyst and former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. believes Floyd Mayweather Jr will be placed in a position he’s not used to when he faces Manny Pacquiao on May 2.
Jones Jr thinks Mayweather will need a knockout for him to get the victory.
“You don’t get Mayweather to engage,” Jones said via ESPN. “Pacquiao’s plan should be to outwork Mayweather and outpoint. He’s not going to be able to force Mayweather to engage. He can do what he wants to do and try, but he can’t force a defensive fighter who’s that skilled and defensive. You can’t make him engage. I think Floyd will have to knockout Pacquiao to win. If there’s a decision, I think Pacquiao wins the decision,” Jones said.
