there's a lot of crap on Pacquiao, but because he has Arum controlling his life, they make him look like a good guy. Just google the visionquest lawsuit, talks about the tax issues he has etc.

Floyd is human, but because he puts himself out there as the bad guy, he's going to get judged harsher than others. Plus he's a superstar athlete. 

he does a lot of good, and with him comes the bad, I don't pay much attention to his personal life.


Sure a lot of it is show but he still dont seem that likeable. That crying for himself in the press conferences because of his perceived non-respect, thats some diva shit....at least Manny seems like the true humble warrior. Not sure much of his personal life as im not with Floyds but cheating is one thing, abuse is another. Also, i know its to be taken with salt like Chael but Floyd's also on some race bating shit on Manny and on Jeremy Lin, etc....i can understand trying to keep the hype with Manny but insulting the entire Filipino culture is never just show and what's to be had with dissing Lin? And cant stand the fact that so many black figures shit on Lin when he was an underdog and beat discrimination to get where he was, you'd like black people would understand that. That SNL skit put it perfectly.

Love to watch both of them fight though.

Also, what do you make of this article: http://espn.go.com/boxing/story/_/id/9233908/floyd-mayweather-jr-puts-rematch-clause-robert-guerrero
"Floyd 'Money' Mayweather Jr. admitted this week what many have long suspected -- that he hand picks every opponent who enters the ring with him."

Floyd can be a prima donna, he can repeat himself a lot, avoids tough questions...like he says, he's young, black and rich...with that comes some derogatory opinions on non black athletes. I have a lot of black friends, and especially the ones that were athletes, they would bash whites, hispanics, asians etc, when it came to Football, Basketball etc. 

my buddy who watches big fights with me, he's mixed btw...always expects the black guy to win, especially against someone white lol..It's just the way they were raised, blacks dominate a lot of American sports.

as for the article, I take it as Floyd picking his opponents because he's his own promoter. Guerrero is the mandatory and currently the toughest fight for him at WW. I'm curious to see what happens after this fight, there's talks of him fighting in the UK, possibly against Khan, who just two years ago had people saying he'd give Floyd problems.


Aint nothing wrong with being young, black and rich but why is it acceptable that being that gives you a greenlight to have these derogatory opinions on non-black athletes esp against other minorities who face similar barriers?

Thats a whole other story than stereotyping as a fan based on ethnicity. Blacks do dominate American sports, fact. But the whole "poor black me" schtick while acting like a redneck towards others is simply weak ass bs.

Do you think this fight will be competitive? Ie, worth watching? I enjoyed the Cotto fight. Cotto made Floyd work from what i remember. And is Khan the next logica solution assuming the Pac fight is now out the door?

lol he sure did sell that fight, never seen so many casual fans at my bros before...it was like 20 Hatton fans and 5 FMJ fans, after the KO, they all just left one by one.


I was in Vegas that weekend (not to attend fight tho). there was a bigtime Cowboy/rodeo convention...all the casinos were filled with Hatton Fans from england and cowboys...the Hatton fans were living it up friday night...u could hear them singing/shouting the "theres only 1 ricky Hatton" song randomly thorughout Friday night/Saturday.

I watched the fight at a friends, but strangely didnt see many of the Hatton fans in the casinos after the fight. it was so much quieter in the casino after the fight. it was a great time tho, the Brits were down to party!

just the history of Slavery and racism times through the 50's and 60's, not saying it's right...but I feel that's the reason they always bring it up. It's always going to be brought up, if they feel held back.

yea I agree with your middle paragraph, that's why I don't I get emotionally involved anymore with their "sad stories". Everyone has some sort of struggle in life, some more difficult than others.

I think early on it will be, most of Floyd's fights are competitive early until he makes adjustments. Two scenarios imo, Guerrero turns it into a dog fight, and there's a lot of inside fighting which will make it entertaining. Or Floyd is just going to dog Guerrero out, not allow him to make things dirty, just keep him on the outside...being a Floyd fan, that's entertaining for me too lol.

Guerrero will have at least 10 pounds on Floyd, don't think it matters because he always spars with bigger/younger guys, he's prepared for another dog fight. One thing about Floyd that isn't talked about much, he has a long reach for only being 5'8'', JMM talked about it after his fight with Floyd.

I love the British fans, especially Hatton fans..the enviornment is amazing, especially Mayweather/Hatton weigh in. They get hammered and have a great time, they were still singing after Hatton got KO'd lol.

what I honestly like the most about the weigh in between Mayweather and Hatton was when Floyd gave his children two of his titles to hold up and the British fans respectfully stopped boo'ing and switched to a positive Hatton chant. I thought that was pretty cool.

Mr Bonds/Gents,

I say we make a thread posting the Hagler v Leonard fight on Sunday and Leave the discussion open for the week or however long people want to discuss. We will officially re-score with anyone that wants to on Wed/discuss with whoever wants to whenever they have time on the other days. Sound any good?
