Mayweather is a smart fighter, but boring as fuck to watch. He'll jab and run all fight. It wont be a good fight.

I think Pacquiao is fast enough to hang with Pretty Boy, I'm sure it would be a better fight than either De La Hoya or Hatton put up.

We're having a big gathering at my place tomorrow and I think I'm the only one taking Ricky.

Ha ha...how many times has this happened? I stopped counting.

Seriously - TSG stays home to watch something else and the Galaxy wins.

Aren't the Angels playing next week?

the outcome of this fight just goes to show, if you are white (and not from a former communist/socialist country) you need to stick to the UFC. that being said, maybe in a few more years folks in the USA could have a shot at competing, but that all depends on how much of obama's agenda gets implemented.

hatton went down like roy jones jr.

of course this reference is only applicable to the 'well past his prime' roy jones jr. if you are inteneding this as a bash on roy jones jr, i would have to question your boxing evaluaation skills. IMO, roy jones jr should be considered one of the top 10 fighters of all time, and probably the 3rd best since ali retired (behind only sugar ray and tyson . . . i consider him and chavez about even, slight lead mr jones).

What's the difference between a £20 note and Ricky Hatton?

The £20 note will last more than 2 rounds!

I think I'm going to retire from the prognisticator business and stick to just watching for a while. My dry streak continues.

Pacquiao v. Mayweather is going to have more hype than Oscar v Mayweather, and it's going to be just as boring. I hope Manny knocks that phony out.

hmm . . . is that not a prediction?

just to note, i am betting against your non-predicting prognistication. my feeling is the agressiveness of pacquiao will make this an entertaining fight, ending with mayweather doing a rikki hatton impersonation.

Whoa daddy! Next big SUPERFIGHT!!!

I think this fight will be tougher for Manny than the Floyd fight would have been.

What do you guys think?

i think pacman will be too much for cotto. pacman wins by KO.

mayweather is just being a bitch and avoiding pacman. he will use money as the issue why he can't fight pacquiao.
