If they were ever to meet, Ukrainian-born lightweight (175 pounds) prospect Ismayl Sillakh (14-0 12 knockouts) believes that six-time titlist Floyd Mayweather (41-0, 25 KOs) would out-smart WBO welterweight (147 pounds) and WBC junior middleweight (154 pounds) king Manny Pacquiao  (52-3-2, 38 KOs), who has a May 7, Showtime televised Top Rank Promotions defense of his WBO belt against Shane Mosley (46-6-1, 39 KOs).

Sillakh has a March 4 bout opposite Cuban-born Yordanis Despaigne (8-0, four KOs).
