Bet on Boxing Odds

Mayweather is 47-0 in his career with 26 knockouts and 21 decisions. He has rarely faced much adversity in the boxing ring for some time. The last time he was knocked down was by Shane Mosley back in 2010, but he went on to win that fight by decision with relative ease.

His fighting style is that of a counter-puncher, which can lead to some issues in the eyes of judges. His opponents have opportunities to throw more punches and look like the aggressive fighter, which can steal rounds. Two of his last three fights have been won by majority decision, even though Mayweather seemed to clearly establish the victory. Pacquiao throws a lot of punches per round, which could be an issue if rounds are close.
