as far as mosely, i think he has the power to drop floyd, the problem is gonna be catching him, i dont know that shane has the footwork to shrink floyds point of attack!!!!!!!!!

its tough to bet against may, i wont be putting any money on the fight, thats for sure!!!!!!!! i just wanna see a war, i wanna see floyd in the fray, i wanna see floyd get hit, i wanna see floyd get hurt, if youre gonna go down as an all time great, you need some wars under your belt!!!!! mosely always been a favorite of mine, was shocked when he got caught doping.. but hes still a beast with all that behind him, so ill be pulling for shane!!!!! im confident itll be an entertaining fight!!!!!!

and yo what was clotterys problem!?!?!?! i think he coulda really fucked mannys shit up if he just took some chances, he was getting through but he didnt stay busy!!!!!! hes got crazy hands, but he doesnt keep busy enough in there!!!!! shit seemed funny, kinda felt like a fix!!!!!!!!!
That's cool you say that, angry, but the kids I grow up around know fuck all about boxing. The only people I get a true boxing conversation with is my dad and cats online; for example, some kid was willing to bet his life that Tyson was fighting professionally at the same time as Ali and another thinks Amir Khan is an all time great???? Lmfao.

No doubt Mosley has the power to drop Floyd, but it ain't gonna be easy for him to land whatsoever, Mayweather's defence is one of the best of all time. However, Money ain't gonna be able to slide, run, and evade for the full fight because Mosley just does not stop, he's a fucking machine, he ain't gonna stop even if he's lost every single round; just look at the Mayorga fight, he fucking pulled it back in the last few seconds to deliver a peach of a left hook to end the fight Rocky style. You can never rule him out.

I'm not sure if I can see this fight being a "war" as such in the vain of Holmes-Norton, Hagler-Hearns, Gatti-Ward(s), Klitschko-Lewis etc. etc. as that won't work in Floyd's favour whatsoever, but there are gonna be periods when Floyd gets hit hard and backed up to the ropes, so we'll see how he deals with it.

As for the Clottey thing, what a fucking joke. I was telling people exactly what would happen months before the first bell: Clottey would throw fuck all each round and get beaten on a wide points decision. Did you hear his interviews before the fight?? "If I lose, I'm not gonna lose like Pac's other opponents"... tell me that ain't somebody who thinks he's gonna get defeated. I wouldn't say it was fixed, angry, I just think Clottey wanted to pick up his $3 million with the least amount of trouble as possible.

lol yeah thats kinda the same from me my Dad is the biggest boxing expert I know and is the reason im into it myself. although I've had quite a few pay-per-view parties down the years, even back in high school we used to get a bunch together for the big fights.

now though we've got Haye and Khan, and recently had Calzaghe so u'd think more might be into it.

Its not like the glory days of Eubank, Lennox and Bruno though lol. Even Prince Naseem, at least he bought alot of attention.

Yeah, we've had the PPV parties as well for the likes of Hatton and Haye, but beyond those names they don't have a clue what's going on. I agree with what you say about the glory days but I never rated Benn that much, and Eubank was good but not great. If they ever fought Herol Graham, they would've been picked apart.

Although I think it's safe to say that Lennox Lewis is the greatest British fighter of all time, anybody who says Calzaghe knows nothing.

A lot of my friends hated Lennox, but i thought he was great. He avenged his losses.

As for Clottey, the reason he doesn't get knocked out is because of what we saw vs. Pacman. He did the same vs. Cotto at the end of their fight, & then starts crying because he feels he gets robbed. He has to learn how to close the show, which means taking chances, like Pacman, & even Cotto. Though he would of done good damage to Pacman if he opened up more, I also believe he probably would've gotten knocked out.

As for boxing in general, it needs to clean its act up. Too many champs (WBC, IBF, WBA, IBO, WBO, etc.), interim champs, Super champs, it's beyond silly. Have one recognized champ per division. Too many weight divisions IMO. Super this, Jr. that, go back to the old original weight classes. Add better undercards to PPV events, I know wrestling is fake but at least their fans get a few stars per event. MMA is starting to surpass boxing in popularity, maybe it's time that boxers learn from them.

Who else is hyped up for Marquez-Vasquez 4? Unlike the Pacman/Clottey and, likely, the PBF/Mosley fights this one is GUARANTEED fireworks for as long as it lasts. Practically impossible to make a logical pick in this one as all 3 of their fights were toss-up battles. I'd like to see Marquez get his revenge though since the rematch was stopped early IMO. What do ya'll think???

Morales making his comeback this Sat too... He's my favorite all-time but I'm concerned for the dude at this point. His legs are gone and we all know they don't come back once they're gone. He should stay retired, but we'll see.....

Marquez & Vazquez 3 fights are up there with Ward & Gatti's battles. I agree^^ that this is guaranteed fireworks & bombs thrown at each other. I hate what Vazquez's eyes will look like after this fight. Both of these fighters deserve what Clottey made for his fight vs. Pacman, I can't wait for this.

Yea, Morales should of stayed retired, I think he's fighting at 147.

I heard that Pacquiao & Clottey's fight did 700k PPV buys, not a bad number.

Not a bad number at all but May and Shane will crush that, along with any chance of Manny getting a 50/50 split with Floyd. It seems more and more that the "megafight" might not happen. Bob Arum makes way too much by having Manny fight other Top Rank fighters.

Hopkins still looks young 30'a. Dood's discipline is off the charts for that age.
