    Boxing Thread

    There are already several threads concerning boxing, but not an official boxing thread. So I thought I would start one and with the fight of the century looming I thought that would be a good place to start.

    So it looks like its going to happen sometime in March maybe, Pack Man and Money May, who ya got? I say Paquiao by TKO in the 10th. Personally I can not wait for this fight. And I'm especially pumped that its happening so quickly. I thought for sure Mayweather was going to piss and moan over the purse split but things seem to be moving nicely. Thoughts?

    Mayweather wins, after this fight boxing Officially dies......


    It should be a good fight though and will produce a ton of $$$ so thats a positive for the sport..........


    MMA has taken over, its just more popular, IMO, just my opinion.

    No doubt mma is taking over but I think boxing can still thrive and this fight will go along way in helping the sport maintain.

    I can see where you are coming from, and you may be completley right but after this fight whats really left? Other then a rematch if its a great fight (like it should be).

    Im asking as a serious question, not trying to be condescending in any way at all, interested in your opinion.

    All good brotha, as far as high profile matchups on the horizon there are a few good fights scheduled and some potential super fights possible. There are
    a lot of real good fighters out there. And while there may not be a weight class in boxing that can compare with say the light heavyweights in the UFC as far as being loaded from top to bottom with star power the welterweight seems to be the most stocked so I will highlight a few.

    Aside from Paquiao and Mayweather there is still Shane Mosley (46-5 w/39 KOs) who is the current WBA champion and is itching for a shot at both of them. Mosley will have a title unification fight in Jan. 2010 with WBC champ Andre Berto.

    Miguel Coto (34-2 w/27 KOs) is still very formidable despite the loss to Paquiao and will fight anyone at any time.

    Next is Joshua Clottey(35-3 w/20KOs) who lost a couple of close fights to Coto and Antonio Margarito, Clottey is scheduled to fight Carlos Quintana on Dec.5.

    Antonio Margarito (37-6 w/27KOs) who has beaten both Coto and Clottey and lost to Mosley,is a former WBA and IBF welterweight champion.

    Andre Berto (25-0 w/19 KOs) Current WBC welterweight champion will defend his title against Mosley in January.

    While some of these guys might not be house hold names I assure you they are quality fighters and should give boxing fans something to look forward to. IMO the welterweight division is by far the most exciting the fighters are still fast and have enough power to produce knockouts.

    Cool, thank you for the info as I dont follow boxing as much as I once did, I honeslty have almost lost complete interest, I have always been around MMA so im kind of partial to that but I dont look at it as a contest on which is better, I personally hope that boxing doesnt die cause its an artform in itself, Mosley beat Margarito, Margarito beat Coto, and Coto beat Mosley, correct me if im wrong, seems like pretty good competition.

    Cant wait for Paq and Flloyd

    Does anyone else want to see Pacquiao passed out on the canvas with Mayweather, Jr. hovering above him in victory? Or am I the only one?

    I think you might be the only one, but if Pac faces either of Mayweather or Mosely, Manny isn't afraid of either of them.

    It's their camps that are.

    Once the Mayweather and Mosely fight if over on May 1st, we all know one huge matchup is going to be on the table.

    why would anyone cheer for a guy that is all mouth outside of the ring? This is what I cant understand. He does NOTHING outside of boxing that would lead anyone to believe that he is the slightest bit respectable. I see the guy go to talk and it makes me want to throw up. Makes false accusations with nothing to back it up except his word (which is worth nothing).

    Yet manny is the one thing that brings the filipino nation to the world in any regards unless something bad happens like mudslides in his country. He runs for congress to try to improve his country. Does nothing/says nothing that would make anyone dislike him and is so humble in everything that he does

    so if you knew nothing about the guys except what i just said who would you cheer for? Maybe im missing something but all i have to do is hear mayweather and his me me me mentality and I feel like im not missing anything.

    this is case in point:


    "i think pac gave the fans a boring fight and he was one dimensional"

    ~floyd

    he goes on to say that if you watch him that it is non stop action.....should i go on? okay i will

    he refers to himself in the 3rd person
    he calls pac an amatuer compared to him
    states that he could draw more people to that stadium (BS if he was fightin clottey)
    the only reason pac is popular is because of his ethnicity
    ----------------------------------

    um your a counter puncher so to say that your non stop action is stupid. All ive seen you do is run around the ring until it suites you to throw a punch.....far cry from non stop

    dont refer to yourself in third person, do you seem to think that the reporter or yourself forgot who you are?

    yes many amatuers have won titles in 7 different divisions especially when continually moving up from flywieght

    no pac is popular because of the person he is not because he's filipino

    haha now margarito says he'll fight pac anywhere.......

    what he needs to ask himself is who would want to fight margarito? Sorry but you havent done anything except cheat, how does that translate to you deserving to fight anyone?

    For him to say that Manny is a boring fighter and only popular because of his ethnicity is ridiculous. And the only way mayweather packs Jerry Jones' house more than Pac is if money swallows his big boy pill and mans up and fights Pac. The guy is something else I will say that.

    Manny's ethnicity is a huge reason why he's so popular. Theres no denying that. (also not implying that theres anything wrong with it)
