Default Big Fight Night!!

In case you haven't heard there is a big fight tonight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas. I'm sure there are a few fight fans here so I'd like to hear how they think this fight will go.

Here's what I think, If...and that's a big 'if' Mayweather has the nads to stand there and actually fight, he's gonna lose, Manny will land punches from angles Floyd hasn't seen before. But if Mayweather chooses to run he'll pull out a close decision.

I hope Manny connects and knocks the chump out!

'Big fight?' That ended a marriage of 20 some years.

I'm watching live updates on line, at the end of 6 rounds, looks like booth have taken 3 rounds each,.....

End of 8th, Mayweather has taken 5 rounds......

Mayweather has carried 6 of 9....

Standing toe to toe in the center of the ring, has so far not been to Manny's advantage.

Mayweather has won in a unanimous decision, still undefeated.

Mayweather takes another round. Manny is going to have to knock him out to win this one. He's throwing more punches, but they lack accuracy.

Mayweather wins, fight went the full 12 rounds.

I chose not to get the fight, but from what I'm hearing, Floyd did end up running and clinching. I'll watch it in a couple weeks on cable and decide for myself.

Yea itch, I feel the same way, and to hear him say he's better than Ali ever was makes me laugh.

Was just reading that Pacquio camp now says he fought with a torn rotator cuff.

I think the last fight I watched was Holyfield - Foreman or the likes.


Ill just say it Mayweather is an Ass, good on him for being loaded and a top athlete but he is a tool.

Mayweather won in a unanimous decision. For the most part, he stood in the middle of the ring and traded punches. He landed more, and was more accurate.
I don't care much for him as a person, but his record is amazing.
He's talking about retirement. Now would be a great time to do that.

When I was a police officer in Newburgh NY it seemed that most every riot started with a sports event which involved a ball or a puck.
