mayweather is too pompous
Humility or otherwise, has nothing to do with one's prowess when it comes to boxing.

The video clear show that many refused 14 days test before fight, he said he wanted 24 days and I gave the link below.



Bro analyse boxing, this is an over flogged issue and its a thing of the past now or are we not having the fight any more?

And was it confirmed he used drugs as you implied?

You brought it up and its part of boxing.. I already contributed my part discussing boxing..just needed to filter half truths...

Mayweather will likely win, I give him 75% chance. Boxing is a game for black men...We are naturally stronger than them physically...

A week from today, the eyes of the world will be on the MGN Grand in Las Vegas as unarguably the most anticipated fight of this Century since Tyson V Lewis finally comes to fruition. This is set to be the richest fight in boxing history, generating a whooping $300 million but much like Tyson-Lewis, this is a long over-due fight 5/6 years in the making. So the pertinent questions here are; will it live up to its hype? And what are we to expect come May 2nd.

Both fighters are very different in style, Floyd is a defensive counter-puncher who's perfected the art of hitting without getting hit, while Pacquiao is a tenacious power puncher & more of risk taker who throws himself right into the mix. However the one thing both fighters have in common is speed.

Floyd Mayweather steps into the ring with a slight height & reach advantage as well as an unbeaten record (which may also be a burden) while Pacquiao will for once relish the underdog status, thus lifting the weight of expectations off his shoulders.

In my opinion, this fight could go either way, it's going to come down to which fighter shows up in better shape physically, psychologically and emotionally coupled with how well each fighter is able to deploy the most effective weapon in his arsenal. For Floyd, his elusiveness and for Pacquiao, his power.

Most pugilist fans like myself hope for an explosive fight ending in a knockout and it's up to Pacquiao the more sensational fighter to make that happen. If Floyd is able to stop Pacquiao from getting inside and unleashing his vicious combinations, then we are in for a boring 12 rounds of Mayweather over-cautiousness, with the scorecards deciding the winner and we all know Pacquiao will never win a decision over Mayweather in Vegas.

My heart is with Pacquiao as I always root for the underdog but my head tells me Mayweather. I'm contemplating wagering on Pacquiao but how do you wager against a man who's never lost? Which ever way it goes, only one man will make the transition from Champion to Legend.

I created this thread so that fight fans on this forum (I hope they're still here) can have their say. Lets hear your per-fight analysis and predictions, are we going to witness an upset? If you had to, on whom are you going to wager & why?

Seun & Mods please be kind enough to push this thread front page.

He's not just humble, he's an humble fighter who isn't afraid of defeat unlike may weather who runs from those likely to beat him.

My bucks on Pacmania
He throws more hits in right areas
Dude is very Humble
Dude rarely fumbles
Dude is jack of all trades
Dude is naturally genius made
Dude sings, plays basketball and fights too
Dude donates 1 million pesos to Filipinos when he has a fight
Dude always smile, hmm kinda right
Mayweather gonna taste his first defeat in May
Las Vegas is his home and he's gonna be beaten in Las Vegas

If he doesn't have anything to hide, he would have agree to 14 days blood test prior to fight and not insist on 24 days. Mayweather won't risk his unbeaten run against such person, once all terms are met we have the fight. Now lets enjoy it!

Nihilist:


I got knocked out during an amateur fight.

3 rounds, only 150 pounds for the winner.

Woke up concussed and realised that I was risking my life for nothing.

About the fight, Manny is old and a politician and a basketballer.

Floyd can smell victory cos like like Anthony Joshua, he picks fights he can never lose.

Pac lost to Marquez and then got beat by Tim Bradley. Granted Pac came back strong in the rubber, but it already obvious that we're looking at a great in decline

Plus Kennny Bayless is the ref...That's like having two floyds in the ring. grin

hey man,the lost to Bradley is debateable,u and i know pacman should've won that first fight which he did in the secon.

Mayweather is defensive style is paying for him,47 unbeating run,26 KO.Thats preaty scary.But we ought to rem this is pacman not oscar,marquez,cotto or marquez.

Moneyman has got the defense and accuracy,pacman has got the power and speed.I know mayweather will win if its on point but i'd like pacman to win on KO.

But you turned assumptions to reality..making it look like he was caught with drugs.

So what makes the fight now different? Did he end up taking a 14 days drug test or still got his 24 days done? If he did the 14 days..mind giving us links to it?

Both are good boxers but my bet is on Manny, the proud would be humbled and he who identifies with God he does not forsake.

Why can't Manny fight Canelo? Why would Manny leave top 5 P4P to fight talentless Rio and nutritionist Algieri. Why do you think Marquez never argued Mayweather superiority but question Manny win and even traveled to Manila, Philippine to ridicule him for a rematch. He didn't even KO him, he put your Manny to sleep like a C level fighter.
