Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

To look at both their faces at the press conference, you wouldn't think either of them had actually been in a fight. They won, everyone else lost.

Bowe vs Holyfield
They are heavy weight boxer... anyone expecting middle weight fighters to box like two clashing titans has not even understood the fundamentals.

Bottom line is that Pac-Man is beyond is sell by date but at least had a last good pay day. Now he can go back to Filipino politics and can use his popularity to fight for his fundamentalist Christian views against family planning or gays...

(and Mayweather can continue to collect designer shoes... which probably will affect less people negatively)

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

I figure this fight would be boring. Mayweather sits and waits for a missed punch to counter. Pacquaio trying to break Mayweather's defense. I would go in against Mayweather for $100 Million, that twerp. I may not even bother to watch it now.

I believe Khan does have the attributes to beat Mayweather. He's in his prime, faster and bigger than Mayweather. Which is exactly why Mayweather won't fight him.

Boxing jargon I know, but rumour has it that FM dad thinks it will be an easy fight for him to retire with 49 wins, albeit I think he would like to get to 50 and then retire.

All irrelevant if Khan beats him.

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

A bottom line is that Pac man lost this fight and floyd won. i talking about boxing only and i am not interressted in their earnings. And you have crossed a line by questioning my expertise in boxing. Amir khan is a solid fighter but he has a glass chin and we have saw that in many occasions. He is not near the floyd or mannys level.

Neither Floyd nor Manny have genuinely KO'd anyone in 6-7 years. And despite his glass jaw, I don't think Khan would get KO'd either at this stage in their careers either.

The bottom line is that it was a shit fight.

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

This Fight looks like shaping up to be quite a show
Floyd Mayweather seems to be taking up quite a fight now Honestly I don't think he can win this fight is really all about speed versus Power because they both have skills

LoL. An MMA fighter is going into a BOXING ring against a BOXER. Not only a boxer, but the best boxer for a generation. There'll only be one winner.

If you have any money, put it on a Mayweather win. Remortgage your house. The odds are ridiculous considering how one sided this will be.

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

Watch the sports science analysis video It shows that McGregor hits much harder Mayweather is fast and has some slick tactics however you can never win a street fight by boxing your way out of it

This isn't a street fight. It's a boxing match with boxing rules.

Will catch a torrent the day after for this shit show. It will hardly be Klitschko vs Joshua which turned out to be a classic.

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

Mayweather is good at playing the boxing game however McGregor is very slick and can also hit hard and unexpected ways so how can Mayweather defend against tactics that he's never encountered before


And by the way boxing, like most sports, is very corrupt there for the outcome is really unknown

Funny thing is McGregor was apparently knocked out by his sparring partner.

This, my friend, is called hype. And you've bought right on into it. The best boxers on the planet haven't been able to lay a glove on Mayweather, McGregor is an absolute novice in the sport of boxing So what chance do you think he has?

As much as I would like McGregor to win, I don't even think he has a punchers chance. This fight will end in one of three ways. 1) Mayweather wins every minute of every round in typical boring fashion 2) Mayweather (or the ref) stops McGregor late, after winning every minute of every round 3) McGregor gets fed up of being boxed senseless and decides to drop kick Maywather in Round 5 and gets himself disqualified.
