Mayweather's hand speed and natural welterweight's body strength should take him to a points victory -- with a slight chance of a late-round stoppage.

Marquez will come to fight, but Mayweather's size and strength should prove to be too much for the Mexican fighter.

Mayweather is too fast, too big, too strong, too smart for Marquez to beat him. Mayweather by a 10th-round knockout.
