Sad we can't get the two best fighters in the ring. Boxing is a crock anymore anyways. With that said.

I hate Manny, but he wins this weekend.

I hate him and Mayweather. Two biggest stars in boxing, yet their afraid to get in the ring with each other.

Boxing killed itself by becoming such a crooked sport.

Manny has looked terrible in his last few fights and he will struggle with marquez again. Sad to say he is past his prime. Too bad Floyd and manny couldnt make the fight 3 years ago when they were in their peak, it would of been a good fight.

I have been a boxing fan for the last 30 years and still watch it religiously. I spend hundreds on pay-per-view a year watching fights, but I will not be paying for the Pacquiao/Marquez fight. All their fights have been good, but I gave Marquez the win in the first fight (subjective). Manny won based off the first round, which gave him a 10-6 round on the cards, but once Marquez adapted to his speed, he was able to change the momentum of the fight. I gave him more rounds than the officials did. That’s the problem with decision fights; it is all in the hands of the judges.

Marquez is probably one of the best counter punchers in the history of the sport. The problem I have always had with Pacquiao is he loves to fight at a catch weight. Most guys always have to come up or down in weight to fight him. Pacquiao’s best asset has always been his speed and he is getting older, but so is the guy he is fighting. All the previous rounds went the distance, so chances are the outcome is the same again. They are pretty evenly matched and know each other’s style, so unless Freddie Roach and Nacho Beristain have devised some miraculous plan, we will see the same as the last 3. Most fighters go into the ring with a plan and when that stops working they revert back to their natural instinct, which I think we will see. If either one makes it outside the first 3 rounds, I believe it is going the distance.

It will be interesting to see who Mayweathers next fight will be. Love him or hate him, he has the best defensive style in boxing. His next opponent should be Guerrero or Alvarez. Pacquiao said he took the fight with Marquez because he wanted to erase doubt. Yet, he didn’t choose Bradley because he said the fans knew. Well to me there is still doubt there too.

Boxing has always been quoted as being a crooked sport and this is nothing new, but what sport hasn’t had controversy? People act like every fight is fixed. These are usually the fans that didn’t get the decision they wanted. If you want to be the clear cut winner then put the other guy on the mat.

There are some great fights going on, but your average fan is not watching these fights. Three of the best fights this year were the Quillin v. N’dam, Rios v. Alvarez, and Guerrero v. Berto fights, but how many people watched those fights? I personally know one person other than myself. Many people are just casual fans who get together to drink and hang out with the fellas, which there is nothing wrong with. There is so much talent through the ranks of boxing that are more exciting to watch than Mayweather or Pacquiao, but people don’t take the time to watch these fights because they are not pay-per-view.
