Floyd Mayweather believes that while Manny Pacquiao poses serious problems the Filipino star remains flawed and he expects to expose him when they finally go at it on May 2 in Las Vegas.

“He’s a solid competitor,” Mayweather told renowned Michigan fight scribe David Mayo of MLive.

 But with all his plus points, Pacquiao is “very reckless and he makes a lot of mistakes,” noted Mayweather, who promises to take full advantage of his ring generalship to repulse his livewire foe.

“A lot of guys do a lot of things wrong, but they are still successful,” said Mayweather, obviously referring to the 36-year-old Pacquiao.

“So I want to know what he does right, so I can take that away from him, so I can take that arsenal away from him.”

Mayweather is so confident of his skills that he claims that he can adjust to a situation at the press of the button.

“What I do, when I’m facing a guy, whatever he does good, I take that away from him, so he has to resort to doing something different.”

Mayweather has been very successful in taking apart his opponents and nobody has really come very close to winning against him after 47 fights.

Even though Zab Judah rocked him and DeMarcus Corley likewise banged him pretty bad and Oscar De La Hoya pushed him to the limit, Mayweather has succeeded in finding ways to win.

Against Pacquiao, Mayweather expects to do the same, go down the well again and come up with a winning move.

But Pacquiao’s camp is confident that once Mayweather decides to throw the pail into the well once more, he’d discover that the well has run dry.
