As I said, I am unsurprised by Pac's problems. The only thing Marquez did before this fight was prepare. Manny was sitting in congress/singing/going on late night with Jimmy Kimmel, gladhanding with celebs, etc, etc. You can't compete at a high level if you're all over the place like that.
I think an eventual Manny vs. PBF fight will hinge on how well Manny can concentrate on the fight. He can certainly beat PBF and despite what a homer like TyCoon will say, the Vegas odds will be close to even for this fight despite both fighter's differing styles. The biggest difference between Manny and Floyd, however, is that Floyd's training is never sub-par. He may be in and out of court and beating up his girlfriends when he's between fights but in the lead-up to a bout he's all business.
