Good. Larry's been really getting on my nerves when I watch HBO. I almost sympathize with Mayweather when he went off on Larry after the Ortiz fight. Guy's a total hater.

Out of the current crew, I find Roy Jones Jr. to be a really good color commentator. Never thought I would. Kinda figured he'd be too punchy to pull it off, but he does a good job.

I'm a Canelo fan and really don't want to see this go down, kid's not ready for such a fight.

guessing +650 or so

Manny's wife wants him to stop fighting.

"I know he is still (capable) of fighting, but for me there is nothing to prove," Jinkee Pacquiao told USA Today Sports. "He already has eight (title) belts. He can retire -- stop -- at any time. I want him to stop now."
Manny has to ditch the entourage if he wants to return to top form. Too much going on in his life and it clearly has an effect on his primary career.

Canelo > Guerrero.

It's probably the best fight for Mayweather out there. Martinez is a better fight, but unless he campaign at 154 i don't see it happening.

At this point his primary career is probably being a politician.

If the fight happens then both of them deserve a lot of credit. Neither of them need it at the moment imo..

Pretty ballsy for Canelo to fight Mayweather. Although Canelo has a lot of ring experience, he's really young and it might be smart for him to avoid Floyd until he becomes a bigger PPV draw. That way, he can get more cash out of the fight.

I've never seen Canelo fight. So, I don't know if he can stand up to Mayweather at all. But damn it'd be nice for him to win.

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

Id pay good money to see Mayweather/Canelo.

Kid has to test himself against the best at some point. Why not now? A defeat wouldn't be that damaging and he'd learn a hell of a lot about himself as a fighter. Id say guys in his shoes would be scared of losing but if this fight is gonna happen then fair ****s to him for stepping up and taking on the best.

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

For Canelo it's either Mayweather or Trout.

Losing to Trout = disaster.
Losing to Mayweather = probably not a big deal unless he's mentally damaged from it.


Amir Khan - Molina should be a onesided beatdown, but there's always the thrill of Khan getting ktfo.
Donaire - Arce should be the same, except Arce have very little chance to KO Donaire. Should be a fun fight while it last though.

Too bad Rigos fight fell through. Apparently his opponent tested positive for HIV.

Will definitely watch the Donaire - Arce fight first, although Arce has almost no shot of winning.

Do not care much for the Khan fight, hope it's worth a watch afterwards.

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

Any opinions on Leo Santa Cruz?

He's apparently a big deal, but he's somehow slipped past me.

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

I've only seen his Zaleta fight. He looks like he's worth watching. Exciting enough, but I don't know how good he is. He did make an old Eric Morel quit, so that may count for something.

He fights, and looks, a hell of a lot like Antonio Margarito. Let's hope he doesn't wrap his gloves like him.

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

I've never seen Santa Cruz fight either

hope the ratings are decent and the fight is good though since it's on CBS and if it does well we could see more in the future

I'm probably gonna watch Khan tonight because he is exciting and there is always the chance of the upset. Donaire too good, gonna be lopsided for him

Billy Joe Saunders not getting it all his own way. Bit of an eye opener for him here.
