Manny grew up dirt poor and uneducated in a third world environment, and is likely kinda dumb about most stuff, and was superstitious about drawing blood too close to the fight so he refused.

Manny agreed to all sorts of other stuff, but not blood within a certain timeframe before the fight. Floyd, at that point, was ducking the fight.
i get why people hate floyd for a multitude of reasons but i dont get how people could hate him for wanting strict testing.

Is pretty funny Floyd suggests he be fired and the response probably doubles his popularity.

Also, I don't really get where Floyd is coming from. Anytime Merchant has said or asked anything negative about him it's been something pretty much everybody else thought too. It's not like he hasn't given the guy his respect or has went out of his way just taking out of nowhere shots.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

merchant is definitely biased against mayweather, but theres no excuse to act as classless as floyd did to a man whos served this sport quite well for a very long time.

Have some respect for your elders, basically.

No idea what you are talking about. This is exactly what boxing needed.
What would have been bad for boxing is another 12 round technical master class in boxing that puts everyone to sleep by Floyd. This is the total opposite of that. It is not as if Floyd looked bad, he looked fantastic.
As someone who does not watch much boxing I already can not wait for the next Mayweather fight.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Wait, so Ortiz jumps up and tries to knock Floyd out with a head butt, but Mayweather is being called out?

Mayweather's a *****, but he was in a fight, the ref says the fight is on, you knock that mother****er out.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Just as an aside, Floyd has done stuff like this before so I think it was pretty reckless by Ortiz. It certainly didn't come as much of an surprise.

edit: Here for instance.

He also did it to Mosley, but neither was as bad as last night. Floyd knew what he was doing. He wanted to get a shot in as payback for headbutting him and he knew that Ortiz was not going to be ready for the quick left hook after they hugged.

It was legal, but a cheap shot. No excuses for Ortiz or Joe Cortez though.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Cortez has tilted the crap out of me for a few years now. He may have been a good ref years ago, but nowadays, he's ****.

I can see why people felt ripped off by the main event, but the undercard was strong. At the bar, I was able to watch Shields get KTFO on the UFC event while waiting for the main event.

With Floyd vs Pacquiao, I just want to see both sides negotiate and get it done. The money is way too good to pass up. If this fight happens, I am certain a lot of people will be complaining about that fight because I don't think it will be the "superfight" everyone thinks it's going to be. There will be a lot of build up and then disappointment once the fight's over. Mayweather's style will never appeal to the casual fan.

Floyd's ring IQ is extremely high. Even before the KO, he was holding Victor's arm away from Cortez. His bag is full of tricks.

Don't get me wrong I'm dying to see Pacman v PBF but as each day passes they are one day further removed from their prime.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

It cracks me up every time I see Ortiz look at the ref after the first punch and still not attempt to defend himself. I'm sure he was dazed, but still.

YB, that makes a change from Floyd being the dirty one, he is usually all elbows.

Glad to see a couple ppl get it. LOL @ Ortiz and LOL @ anyone blaming the ref and/or PBF.

Wow, couldn't disagree more.

I think 24/7 ran out of steam about 2 years ago. I feel I know everything there is to know about the likes of Mayweather and Pacquiao. I think this one might have been the most boring yet. Aside, fro the family bust-up in episode 1 almost nothing happened.
