    I've never been much of a fan of his, partially because of what your saying. He routinely makes weird strategic decisions in the ring.

    Guerrero had made it clear he wants Mayweather but he doesn't stand a chance. He'd run rings on him and unlike Berto, he'd find that weakness and stay on it. Berto sucks without the roids.

    This fight actually gave me a little more respect for Berto. I knew he had heart after the Ortiz fight, but he really had to dig deep to just finish this one. That being said, he's most likely on the downside of his career. He was decent, but nothing spectacular. And he could've been, potentially, which makes it even worse.

    As far as Guerrero, he's being trying to call out Floyd, obviously the pay day is the most he'll ever see. But he'll be well out of his league and have to earn every one of those dollars...

    Looking forward to Cotto beating Trout tomorrow. Donaire, eh. Not so much, though I will watch.

    Same here, Cotto has this. Yeah Arse has absolutely no chance against Donaire. But hey I'm still going to root for my boy Arce!

    I am to, only because Donaire has NOONE close to him in his division. He has to gain another 10 lbs just for some competition. That's why I find it hard to say he's a top 5 p4p. He really hasn't been challenged. I don't know if it's because he's that good or his division is that weak.

    Sadly, I think it's over for Cotto.

    I hope so. He fought hard but that should be enough, he had a great career.

    Yup, he's that good, but at the same time it's time for him to move up.

    Plus the fight I really want to see is DonairevsMares, but that will never happen because of Top Shank/Bob Arum. :cmad:


    Yup, it's time to hang them up.

    I actually want or wanted to see Donaire vs Broner because for a minute there was only a 5-8 lb difference but freakin Broner moved up in weight! :argh: But now, Donaire.........eh. He's good but there's no one there where he is right now. I'd actually put Broner and a couple of other guys ahead of him. I know, I know! Shoot me but he's not fighting anyone right now.

    Anyone buying the fight tonight? If so, don't. It's going to be a good one but we've seen this dance way to many times to pay for it. Watch it free online.

    Filipino here and no interest. And I haven't missed a Pacquiao fight in years.

    Smart man. Didn't say I wouldn't watch it, just not paying for it. Can't blame you at all. Just pissed that Bob Arum is making this fight happen for the fourth freakin time!

    I know a lot of filips that feel the same way. But then again, they are watching it, just not paying for it. I have a feeling this fight won't do to well because a lot of people just don't have any interest in seeing it. I'm hoping that's the case. Boxing really needs a commissioner to monitor things because now boxing is getting ridiculous. Promoters are killing the sport by making fights noone wants to see and the fights we do want to see, we have to wait years. I mean, as much as people wanted to see Mayweather and Pacquiao, I think people would rather now see Mayweather vs Canelo because the dream fight should have happened years ago and both Manny and May have lost a step. Manny actually doesn't seem like he even wants to fight any more. I was watching 24/7 and dude is training hard but just the look in his eyes, I just see him looking past his boxing days. It wouldn't surprise me if he lost because he just seems like he doesn't want to fight any more. But you never know what that dog Arum has over him to make him sign a 2 year extension. There's no way Manny wanted to fight for that long. 2 fights? Maybe but 2 years? No way.

    I'm a huge fan of both Marquez and Pacquiao but I'm sitting this one out. I don't want to see Juan get screwed a third time. If I want to see that, I'll wait for JMM to leak his sex tape...

    The UFC card on FX is stacked with high caliber fights anyways. Bendo vs Diaz will likely be the fight that people will be talking about on Sunday.

    It's perhaps the most stacked MMA card on prime time television ever. Well... to be fair, there have been others but they haven't lived up to the hype. This one has a shot to exceed expectations.

    £15 to see Pacquiao vs Marquez 4, after the last robbery? I think not. Hope Marquez knocks him out or gets the decision he should have got in the last fight.

    I saw that! :wow: Arum's cash cow is now done. Arum sucks fyi. Honestly, the look in Paq's eyes......he doesn't want to fight any more. I don't know what Arum said to him to make him sign an extension but his heart is not in it.
