I'd taken the pain to read every letter of 50calibre and nihilist analysis. Deft, those analysis. I can't say for their veritability. But they both seemed to have in their possession a considerable amount of knowlegde about the sport. My interest really is piqued and i'm stirred up to become a fan. I rarely follow the sports. 'cause i do not only seethe the sight of 'torture' in a manner of speaking but also got phobia for the gory. But it seems dudes have got me taking quite a fancy to it. So, come may 2nd i'm going to sit before 'supersports', harden my heart to scrap and watch the fight.
If i pass out while watching the fight, get nihilist and 50caliber behind bars!

Flowing from their analysis, i was able to infer pacquiao might stage an upset. And so i roundly think. And since, I have a thing for the under-dog, my money is on pacquiao.

Nobody in the History of Boxing(yes i said so) adjusts better to opponents in the ring than Floyd. If manny allows Floyd to settle into a rythmn He finds comfortable, then the ref might as well call off the fight from that very moment. However If manny manages to keep floyd off balance whilst also distrupting his rythmn, then He could actually do him.

As far as I am concerned, I Manny victory would not count as an upset. He is pretty much one of the extremely few fighters in the world with the skill set to beat Money Hence why it has taken Floyd this long to accept this fight.

50calibre:


You go loss that money grin grin believe me.

Pacman is the man, I'm betting on him. The Pacquiao we are going to see that night will be on fire... Watchout.

Besides have you bought a box office ticket, Sky will be the only one showing the fight in the UK. Normally I'd just go online for free streaming but I don't want excuses this time.

Danny Garcia is a future prospect, he's the next big thing.

Nah I'm watching it at Asper's Casino which is 10 minutes away from my yard.

Danny Garcia 'Next big thing?' You're having a laugh mate. Danny Garcia IS a big thing already! 30 fights undefeated...currently defending world champion holding WBC and WBA light welterweight belts since 2012.

Did you not see his bout with Amir Khan where he knocked him out with a right hook and left him spazzing like an epileptic?

Youtube it.

Danny ain't no next big thing. He arrived a long time ago. If anything, punters are concerned that he may be slipping. His fight against lamont Peterson was far from convincing

I think you will find that one of the reasons this fight is only just happening is due to manny consistently ducking a drug test that the money team were asking for.

Agree with the rest of your submission

Hahahaha come on the torture is nothing compared to MMA, you've got to admire the sweet art of pugilism, the only sport which allows a young boy from the slum forge his path to greatness using just his fists.. grin

Boxing is my second favourite sport after football (soccer), intelligence & strategy play a very key part in both of them.

That's dop*e!! The atmosphere would be electric.. Unfortunately, there are no Casinos around my area, and since the fight time in the UK is past midnight, it's highly unlikely any pubs would be open either so except any of my friends got plans, I'd be firmly rooted to the front of my TV grin

Apart from Amir Khan (who's been inconsistent throughout his career) & Zab Judah, Danny Garcia is yet to face any notable opponent so I'd advice caution here. Same thing happened with Canelo Alvarez till he met Mayweather. I'd wait till Garcia defends his title against all the top ranked contenders first before rating him hence I still consider him a bright prospect.

Hey bro, Lucas Matthysse? And Garcia barely got by Matthysse. Matthysse ruined Garcia in my opinion, he's been lackluster since the Matthysse fight. I think if Garcia moves up to 147, he gets destroyed by the likes of Maidana,Thurman, Brook, Floyd, Manny, Juan Manuel Marquez, etc.

Kell Brook is too inconsistent for me...But you're kinda right about Danny.

Dude has been playing that will-he, won't he game with his weight now, and I believe that has affected his recent performance however... The fear of Danny's right hand is the beginning of wisdom.

17 pro KOs are not to be sniffed at. The man has a granite chin and a destructive payload in that right fist.

He reminds me sometimes of Tyson in his prime, who would take a few haymakers on his way to delivering a brain scrambling concussive hook, uppercut or overhand

That is one of the reasons that has been fed to the public. Still think Floyd was waiting for the right time to fight Manny(ie when He is slowing down). Funny enough I'll pick prettyboy in his prime over any boxer in his Era so I don't why He was avoiding pacquaio. His reflexes and defence is/was mind blowing.

Btw Gustavo Baba nah Tyson Fury you dey overrate like that? Shuooooo!. You'll find it hard convincing me Fury is nothing but a Rich man's FRAUDley Harrison

I no overrate am at all. It's just a fact. The guy is an English, European, and Intercontinental champion. He's titles speak for him.

He is crude no doubt, but from a purely physical perspective, I think he has what it takes to hurt Klitschko if he takes it to the inside or the pocket.

Audley was a European champ o..but East end witches and wizards were too strong for him and consumed his destiny grin

But none of those titles hold water in the current climate nau. Take a Look at the list of chumps He has had to go up against and tell me why I shouldn't take those titles with a pinch of salt?

Which Klistichko? Wladmir or Vitali?. He better give it a couple of years before squaring up to them. Having said that Vitali is past his sell by date and He might be in with a chance(by points though cuz there is no one knocking Vitali down)

Oh boy the wasteman had me sef hoodwinked at a point in time. angry grin

I'm a huge pac fan and tried to model my ring movement on him back when I used to train.

Even bought the same hogs as Manny wore against Miguel Cotto. But in this matchup I'm voting by skin..

Re: Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao - Boxing by Nobody: 9:51pm On Apr 30, 2015
Much as I hate to say this I think Mayweather is taking this fight cos he is not facing the Manny of old. The cowardly Mayweather had to wait till he had lost some of his shine to finally agree on a bout.
For Manny to win he needs to break through Mayweather's defences and wear him down by the 3rd round. If he still has his guard up by then, then it will be hard.

Mayweather may be a coward but he is no pushover. He has the reach , he is one of the best defensive fighters and could be a pain I the @$$.

That being said I hope to God Manny beats him silly.
Re: Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao - Boxing by luvablesam(m): 11:21pm On Apr 30, 2015
Heavyweight Boxing has never being this boring as it has been over a decade with d 'Kliscko' bothers ruling that division. Maybe that's the reason why everyone is talking about the more interesting division in Boxing these days. Manny or Mayweather

I would put my money on the philiphino congressman any day. I hate loud,boastful and arrogant dudes like Floyd.

I've been very careful this week. Looking right,left, and right again before I cross the road. Minding the gap when I get the train. Driving at 30mph.

I must be alive for this fight!

Goddamit....I'm on that hype ting now!

All Manny needs to do is corner mouth weather to the corner or as well stay on his own lane too since mouthweather hardly initiate an offence.

He waits for opponents to bring the fight to him which I find boring..I pray Manny also join the wait game so people can see how boring mouth weather fights.
Re: Floyd Mayweather Vs Manny Pacquiao - Boxing by Truth234(m): 9:36am On May 01, 2015
The problem is every mayweather opponent always say the same thing but when they get into the ring they do another thing. It is just hard to hit Floyd and if there is anyone that can do that its Manny because of his speed and combinations, mayweather does not react when you throw punches, he counter punch you when you are backing out, if Manny work him in and out with good combinations and refuse to chase him round the ring Manny will win the fight because its a known fact that Mayweather usually lose the first 3 rounds against tougher opponents, that is how long it take him to figure them out. He is the most adaptable and adjustable boxer but if Manny refuse to be reckless like he did against Marquez he has a chance.

The winner won't be the best fighter/boxer but the most mentally and technically sound. The mind games going on with this fight is as huge as its hype.
