UFC Fighter, St-Pierre: Pacquiao is a threat to Mayweather

UFC welterweight champion and also MMA's  pound for pound king Georges St-Pierre says that Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao  will prevail against Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. when both will meet in the ring.  The UFC Champion is here in the Philippines where he vowed fans and mixed martial arts enthusiasts.  In a press conference he said that Pacquiao will win over Mayweather.  "Knowing Pacquiao is a big, big threat to him, I think he doesn't want to have that fight because he has a lot to lose," St-Pierre added.  The UFC Champion has a lot of praises for Manny Pacquiao.  "I think Pacquiao is really untouchable right now.  If they hold that fight maybe tomorrow I think Pacquiao will win,"  said St-Pierre.

When St-Pierre was asked about the possibility of Manny Pacquiao in UFC and if Pacquiao could dominate mixed martial arts, St-Pierre simply said that the boxing champ may not make it big in the sport.  "Boxing is totally different from what we do, but if he would take lessons in jujitsu, he may get a shot at it.  But I doubt he'll do it."

St-Pierre also acknowledged Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach.  Roach has been training both Pound-for-pound king's in boxing and mix martial arts at Quezon City Gym.  "I owe a lot to him (Freddie Roach)," St-Pierre said.  "He showed me how to win.  He taught me what I need to do in the Octagon to be come a champion.  He guided me to where I am today."

St-Pierre has an upcoming fight against Josh Koscheck in December, a welterweight title match.  He is very positive that he could win against Koscheck.  "I think I know him more than he knows himself,"  St-Pierre said.
