All I know is that 99-percent of the pugs and trainers of long-gone yesteryears tell me to believe the films and realtime things that I see. Films don't lie, but an untrained brain lies in a second.

Imma believe these old horses, because they are old, healthy, clear minded and can still get around and teach and raise hell.

OOPS! I musta' fo'got. Let me throw 93-year-old Lou Duva and 94-year-old Jake LaMotta in that list. And their ages are suspect. I think the old dudes are about 260-years old. They have some mad knowledge and hardcore actuality of the reality. Holla!"



I think you missed the point of our posts RG. It was that everybody is taking May's TBE claim too serious, and that a fighter has to think he is the best to get in that ring. I think you; my rhyming friend, zoned in on my statement about the "big dogs" of old being more gritty than todays stars.

Pacquiao by majority decision or split decision.

If you're a promoter, you hope for the type of coming-out performance that turns the underdog into a superstar while protecting the old veteran.

It's a classic storyline, time-tested and reliable. Hey, it made John Cena and Rocky superstars with Kurt Angle and Apollo, respectively.

So this is what I see happening. No matter what Chris Algieri does, really.

A knockout for Manny would be ideal, of course, but Paulie Malignaggi has had more stoppages than Manny in recent years so I doubt that happens now.

He's not a swarming brawler/predator, he's a dynamic boxer-puncher with decent punch output.

But just like Algieri said last night on the show, he intends to break Manny's will by beating him at his own game.

We shall see. But as far as the outcome, that is what I see.

That's all you got was 6-1? The opening line on this was something like 16-1, then dropped over the next two weeks to
11-1. I was able to put my somolians down to the tune of 10-1. I

I hereby challenge Radam to this bet: If his homeboy, Da' Manny, wins the fight, I will whip up a glass of one of his morning drinks, the one with pepper and a few ingredients guaranteed to light me up berighter than the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. If Algieri wins, Radam has to devour a plate of BBQ spareribs.

Radam, I guarantee you are gonna' love those ribs.

Mmm-mmm.

I personally think its just to keep people talking, which judging by this thread..it works. I can guarantee it has been the topic of many barbershop and forum debates; ask 20 people, you will get 20 different answers."

Yeah, you're right. It's not that deep. Who really cares?

If he thinks that, so be it, like you said. He's entitled to his opinion just like anyone else.

If you guys remember, a young Cassius Clay and later a brash, pre-exile Muhammad Ali used to say that he was the greatest.

Then he would sit with a straight face and say that he had surpassed Joe Louis -- at 25 -- who arguably then was revered more so than Sugar Ray Robinson. Yet his critics kept criticizing -- that's what they do.

All that mattered was that he believed it. And guess what, that self belief is the most important characteristic in a fighter's DNA BY FAR.

(Hence why souls get snatched so easily and why promoters should steer clear of certain fighters yet never learn.)

Besides, in other for a boxer to perform to the best of his abilities he has to see himself that way -- or at the very least that he has the potential to be so.

And for whatever it's worth, I've heard -- and am hearing -- a growing list of unbiased contemporary championship fighters begin to echo Mayweather's TBE mantra.

Paulie Malignaggi (who's said it for years), Prince Naseem, David Haye, just to name a few.

Haye said there's no category, with the exception of power, where he's less than a 9 on a scale of 1-10 and I agree.

In my opinion, he's the most complete fighter ever in terms of overall skill. But that doesn't necessarily mean he beats every fighter in history.

Even though he's waaaay more skilled than Muhammad Ali, if Ali and Mayweather were the same size, I'd favor Ali.

So King Beef, your point is very well taken. And whether the intention is to steer a debate or express his position, one thing is for sure:

It keeps the people talking.

"Which toe do you want me to shoot off first?"

Chris L:

If Pacquiao goes back down then he's obviously the favourite to take over the division.

After DSG moves up then I can see Broner vs Mathysse for top spot, I think I saw somewhere that Mathysse said he would chase Garcia up to 147 for a rematch if he had to though? If he does things could get interesting - imagine Maidana vs Mathysse at 147.

If T-Craw also moves up to 140 then I think he will become a big player, hard to tell because Gamboa was pretty undersized for lightweight but he did look really impressive when they fought a few months back.

And I am a fan of Floyd's style. The Canelo fight was good, entertaining, Floyd was excellent during that fight, put on a lesson.

The Chino rematch, an absolute BORE.

Hopefully Canelo goes head to head with Floyd in May for ppv, Canelo will outsell him 2-1.

"Bayless gets pretty involved as a ref.

I wouldn't say he was reffing for Floyd, but his style certainly favoured the A side."


He absolutely was reffing for Floyd. ONE warning for holding in 12 rounds of probably 100 clinches?

He also took a point away from Chino did he not? Prior to a warning? I can not honestly remember because I was falling asleep. I kid you not.

Either way the fight was abysmal, absolutely boring.

-Financially, the athletes are no different from the rest of society
-There is a gross misunderstanding of how money works
-Most athletes don't even come close to making millions

If you ever have a chance, watch the 30 for 30 on ESPN called "Broke". It is a decent depiction of how athletes blow their money."


I saw it, it was as interesting as it was heart breaking...


And I still don't understand how so many blow through their money and end up with nothing....Living above their means along with ignorance is of course a definite reason.

I call BS on Bayless and stopped reading his fake answers...

The man was reffing for Floyd, not for two fighters.

It was clear as day Chino was not to have any chance of fighting inside or pushing Floyd around. Floyd getting hit in the back of the head? Well then dont bend over or turn around!!!

Bayless did the job he was paid to do and took an exciting first fight and made it a complete BORE.

Well done, I was asleep by the 9th round.

""Look Ray, if I had a criticism about the sports announcers and the boxing media making the comments like they do – A lot of these commentators don’t engulf themselves into the sport. They don’t go to referee seminars. They don’t learn how we are thinking. They don’t know what we are doing in the ring. I have been to four seminars this year. And I will go to two more seminars before this year is out. Sometimes I will host the seminars. I continue to critique my status as an official. I work hard for the fighters’ fans and for myself. These sportswriters and sports fans, they don’t go to any of the seminars to see how we work on our craft. They can just make comments about us and the fans can just engulf what they say. And that’s the sad part. If one commentator says, “Why doesn’t Kenny do this or that?” that’s enough for at least 10,000 fans watching at home on PPV to think I am favoring Mayweather. But I am just doing my job. I call it the way I see it. I can’t call it the way the fans see it, or the way the sports announcers see it. I have to call it the way I see it."

Those were the words of referee Kenny Bayless in the above interview. I agree with him. Many boxing writers and announcers have absolutely no clue about the intracacies of what goes into being a referee. Many of these so-called "experts" don't know the rules.

At a recent small show in New York, a fighter took a hard shot and sagged onto the ropes. The referee jumped in, sent the guy who delivered the blow to a neutral corner and began a count. A writer next to me starts yelling, "A standing eight-count? Why in the world is the fighter getting a standing eight-count? There is no standing eight-count in New York." I had to inform this internet boxing writer--a member of the Boxing Writer's Association of America--that what he was watching was a knockdown, not a standing eight-count. Then I explained. He just looked dumb-founded and said "Oh, I get it."

Whew. I'm glad he got it. If he didn't, he should try covering horseshoes.

I saw Bayless buying time to diffuse the situation, as Uncle Roger--a notorious hothead--was ready to start a full-scale war. Bayless was fair and, in my opinion, totally unbiased.

Seminars? I doubt any commentator or member of the BWAA has ever gone to a Referee's Seminar.

That's why they make the inane, uneducated remarks that they do.

Know what? Maybe the guy who sat next to me--and others like him--really SHOULD be covering horseshoes!

Nicely put. A lot of these internet keyboarding warriors would do much better covering horseshoes or birds crapping on people domes from the blue skies. Hehe! Holla!

"I was thinking somewhere between 700-750,000 myself...





I guess we gotta wait for the "Offical" numbers to come out"




There seem to be a number of different sources reporting different numbers at this time.



The fact of the matter is that we will never officially know.



My gut from my experience says the revenue and PPV buys will be down from the first time. I was at a theater last May that was packed and sold out before the J'Leon Love fight ended. Standing room only. I went to a different theater this time around and ten people showed up. Just as big mind you as the last theater I was in. My experience tells me the enthusiasm amongst the public was not there for the rematch. In addition, there were other sporting events, namely college football, going on last Saturday night that wern't around last May. I think people held their entertainment dollars back on this one. The only ones that will ever know though for sure are the execs at Showtime/CBS and the Mayweather camp.

"I wouldn't call Crawford a dark horse at all to fight Pacquiao in 2015. I would call him a leading candidate.

He has been performing well and being built towards this fight. Top Rank and HBO lack opponents for Pacquiao and Crawford's performance against Prescott last year opened each their eyes that this could be a guy down the line. He has been moved along since with that idea in mind.

Not coincidentally for example his next fight with Ray Beltran is on a week after the Pacquiao-Algieiri fight. I would go as far right now to say that assuming Pac is successful Crawford may be next in line. Look, we'd all love to see Danny Garcia. But that fight is not happening despite what Oscar states. Garcia is advised by Al Haymon, Pac has an exclusive deal with and HBO has made it clear they are not doing business with Haymon. So next best available fighter out there is Crawford. He's undefeated, skilled and has a huge fan base in Omaha. The fight is marketable and boxing fans will eat this up. I do look for it to happen in 2015 and maybe sooner than a lot may think."


I'm not buying it. Ev'ybodee and dey momma -- except Money May and Marquez/Hulkquez -- want Da Manny/3m next. OMG! This has been going on for years.

Besides, let see the Omahan against Beltran. Beltran will be as tough as nails. He is going to give T-Craw fits. Holla!

I think Bayless is an excellent referee. But even the best ones make mistakes from time to time. I think he did error in the Mayweather-Maidana fight.

In my opinion, he was breaking the fighters way too soon and giving Mayweather an advantage. I am not saying he did this intentionally to give Mayweather an advantage but he pre-determined before the fight to break the fighters quickly thinking if he didn't Maidana may use dirty tactics. The problem in my eyes was the breaks were so early that often times Maidana had one hand free and should have been allowed to work. Mayweather would lunge in to grab Maidana and then instantly Bayless break them. It got to a point where Bayless was even anticipating the clinch and ready to separate the fighters before the clinch happened.

Showtime is re-running the fight tonight. Watch carefully particularly Maidana's hands which often times at least one are free and he should have been allowed to work.

"Bob Arum reckons both Showtime and HBO, Floyd and Manny's respective promoters, have agreed to co-distribute the fight, should it ever be made.

Arum's still trying to pressure Floyd by giving the public the perception that Floyd is the only obstacle to the fight.

No word from either Showtime or HBO at this point though.



Surely Arum knows by now, that if he's to work with Floyd to make the fight, he would be a subject, not a partner. Dealing with Floyd in such a was as this, will have no effect. You must flatter the king in his castle, temp the megalomaniac in his dreams.

Floyd will not be pressured.

Terrence Crawford a Compelling Dark Horse to Land Manny Fight in 2015

An immediate consequence of Top Rank and Team Pacquiao picking a relative nobody to fill one of the Congressman’s precious two annual ring appointments in November is rampant speculation of who he will fight after dispatching with Long Island’s Chris Algieri. After some collective head-scratching followed by irrepressible yawning, the response from the boxing world that expects nothing from the Islander falls along the lines of “Well, who will he fight after Algieri?” As Pacquiao showed last April against Tim Bradley, he’s still...
