PARAÑAQUE--Filipino MMA superstar Brandon Vera has Manny Pacquiao winning over Floyd Mayweather in their match next Sunday.

Speaking in a press conference prior to the One Championship: Valor of Champions weigh-in at the City of Dreams Grand Ballroom on Thursday night, Vera had one reason why he made such forecast: "'Coz he's Pinoy! I will never bet against Pacquiao."

Vera also said that he prefers the fearless style of Pacquiao, who owns a share in One Championship, where the former UFC veteran is under contract right now, over the "point system" tactic of Mayweather.

Vera further explained, "I don't like Mayweather's style. It isn't great yet. Pacquiao is a fighter. He gets to your face. He's gonna try to knock you out."

Pacquiao is known for his aggressiveness, which has been a "source" of power among Filipino martial artists.
