all access does a good job promoting the fighters imo. I find myself getting into the fight more as it gets closer to fight day. By fight day I really thought Canelo could win. I really want to see if el Chino can land just 1 of those chopping overhand rights

MMA Playwright - This is Al Haymon? I didn't imagine him looking like that.

yes, thats him. he used to go to fights completely anonymous. guy is mysterious to say the least. there are only a few known pictures of him and even less interviews. guy basically took over the sport in a five year period

Its at wembley the national football team stadium. Its more or less split 50/50, George has been doing more media work and talks well and carl has just been away from the spotlight training.

Sorry, its in london so there should be more groves fans and most likely will be. Carl should get booed but you never know.

I'd imagine Carl getting boo'ed due to how cuntish he came across after the first fight.

I've got 5 tickets here - I can't wait to go!

Groves within 5, tops. I reckon at least half of Carl's punch resistance has gone from their first fight. Groves detonated some abso-fucking-lute BOMBS on him. It's had to have an enormous effect on him.

I hope Groves is in shape, just in case it goes 12. Froch is tough as nails and George started to fade in their first fight.

I worry that he might have taken on to much media stuff, it's got to take something out of you.

DeGale is meh to me. He gets the winner of this fight though as a mandatory, that's if he beats Gonzales.

Quotes from the presser for the undercard of Mayweather vs. Maidana:

Carlos Molina: We’re ready. Come Saturday night it’s pay-per-view, so we’re going to go for broke on this one. We’re letting our hands fly and expect a great performance from Carlos Molina.

Adrien Broner: If y’all thought a loss was gonna humble me or put me in my place, then y’all can just shove that up y’all ass. Listen, I’ve come to do damage man. I’m punching with bad intentions and I’m back on my “A” game…you put Carlos Molina in front of me? That’s kinda disrespectful to me. So I’m going to make an example out of this muthaf–ker. He’s talking something about going for broke. Sh-t. Ain’t he already broke? He’s getting the biggest payday he ever got and he’s about to get his a– whooped…no homo but he getting’ it off the ding-ding.

legit lol at "...He’s talking something about going for broke. Sh-t. Ain’t he already broke?"

i loved seeing Broner get beat up last time out, but I do find him entertaining. Sometimes I laugh at him and sometimes I laugh with him.

I hate Broner.

His mouth has more skills than his boxing.

Molina may not be a huge threat... but I sincerely hope he gets lucky.

Tomato Can - Is anyone actually gonna buy this card? After putting on a card with Mayweather/Canelo and Garcia/Matthysse, this one looks like a pretty big turd.

I am, Floyd only has a handful of fights left before he retires and I plan to watch every one. Would love to go see him live before he calls it quits too.

The undercard does suck though. Not as good as we have come to expect from Golden Boy. Khan vs. Collazo should be competitive but that's about it.

It's not just the lack of a compelling co-main. I thought Canelo had a legit shot. I don't really feel the same about Maidana.

I'm the total opposite. I never thought Canelo had a chance and even though I think Floyd will have another dominant win, I think Maidana will make it more competitive.

He also has a better punchers chance than Floyd's last few opponents cos he does throw that overhand right in a weird way.

Compared to Top Rank's undercards this one is stacked. Phone Post 3.0

that awkward over hand lands on someone like Broner because he's straight up, Floyd leans back behind that shoulder roll. I could be wrong, it'll be interesting to see.

Actually the Pac/Bradley II undercard was pretty decent on paper, although I still didn't buy it. The Bradley/Marquez undercard was hysterically bad.
