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

This is the saddest piece of sports footage ever. Ali before the Holmes fight

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

Yeah it's very sad, as is the film of his training camp. He was slurring already, slow, and looked like he probably couldn't beat a decent middleweight at that time. Yes he was going in with Larry Holmes.

Comparisons between the Marquez that thought Mayweather and the one that's fighting Pac. He looks a LOT better this time.

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

yeah for sure. Still think hes in way over his head. He will be so slow compared to even 135 which i think is too much for him.

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

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

MMMMMMMMMMMMMM,that is close buddy .But you not far wrong.

On paper the Pac man fight should be easy ,but everyone has there boogeyman(Except Mayweather)Ali Norton etc etc .Could this be Pacs boogeyman?

Please no one say José Luis Castillo was Mayweathers ;p)

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

for some odd reason i caught the third episode of 24/7. To my surprise given the two fighters involved it was halfway decent.

Did you guys like the first two episodes? Is it worth the time?

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

Good news for all you u.k fight fans is Khan just signed a 3 fight deal with Sky t.v

If Mayweather doesn't fight Manny ,then i'm sure one of them 3 fights will be vs Mayweather.

If all the above does not work out ,there are strong rumors going around that Manny could fight Khan.That would be massive to and very easy to sell.Freddie may have a few problems with it though.

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

man I wish JMM somehow uberluckboxes a win here up until the point where I heard he had a rematch clause w Pacquiao if he won, which meant no Mayweather sooooo conflict of interests here

In my opinion, 24/7 always does a phenomenal job. Sure, it's way better with Mayweather and his ridiculous commentary, but this series with Pac and JMM is still very good. Definitely should watch it..

Mayweather would breeze through that fight. You don't believe Khan has the skills to stand in front of Mayweather do you? C'mon now...

No idea how they managed to pull it off, but i guess having a lot of "guests" in nacho, linares etc helped. Also no rehashed stories from either side. Great stuff.

Not a fan generally of todays pac, but really liked the stuff behind the scenes on the linares fight.

Anyone who held out on watching this 24/7 based on how goddamn awful the hbo faceoff was should reevaluate.

Can't see in the above quote or any quote where I said he would ?

But just for the record ,Khan won't be a push over.Every day Mayweather gets older and Khan gets better.Remember Roy Jones jnr ,we all said this guy looks unbeatable ,then one day ...................

Also for the record i'm a massive Mayweather fan,peak for peak Mayweather wins for sure.But that is going on Khans recent peak,he is still getting better.

The Mayweather/Ortiz and Hopkins fights, have me looking forward to something nutty happening instead of a fight. Maybe something like Fan Man 2, that would be just swell.

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

JMM looks a lot better vs Pac than he did when facing PBF.

Which will make exactly 0 difference when he realises he's a 38 year old man going against the p4p king in his prime.
