"All fighters have something to say before a fight. I don't read a whole into it because its mainly to.hype the fight and/or send a message of confidence to their opponent. Trash talk shouldn't be considered as the Gospel.

Is Algieri a PPV fighter? Obviously his is now courtesy Manny Paquioa....

I give him slightly more of a chance to win than Brandon Rios.... But after he loses ......due to the media overload and speculation, Algieri's name and inspiring storyline will be imprinted in our minds for at least a decade.

How Algieri capitolizes on virtually becoming a household name overnight is for him to contemplate."


Hehehe! You are too NICE! C-Al is a new millennium Peter McNeeley. C-Al is going to be long forgotten "in our minds" forever unless something freaky freaky happens like him getting knocked through the ropes and falling on a ring girl or something. Haha! Holla!

"Showtime, Espinoza, Mayweather, Haymon, Schaefer vs HBO, Ken Hershman, Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar de La Hoya, Bernard Hopkins, Canelo, Top Rank, Team Cotto. All these folks are going to battle royal for the Cinco de mayo fight date. The Money Team ain't going to budge and neither is the other side. Hostile take over by the latinos to recapture that weekend. There's going to be 2 ppvs going on simultaneously. It's the promotional battle storm of the century. How'd do y'all see this playing out?"



The simple fact of the matter is ......without Oscar or Schaeffer in his corner or Paq on the opposite side of the ring, ...Mayweather's event is going to fail miserably. He would need to have at least 3 hispanic Marquee fights on the undercard like Cruz vs Mares and an a top caliper opponent like Thurman to even have a chance to compete.



Floyd should have signed Cotto for a rematch immediately after he blitzed Martinez. The fight could have been made.... Freddy Roach was selling the wolf tickets.

I personally don't see what Floyd can do to stop the financial bleeding.



Even if Cotto/Canelo happens a month before the Mayweather fight or a month afterwards. Floyd's event will suffer for it.



Floyd should either pull out or get extremely busy.

"Well, to be fair, Paulie is convinced Manny Pacquiao cheated in that fight so he doesn't consider that a "win." It's not like he contradicted himself; in his mind, he truly has no doubt Pacquiao was cheating."

Paulie also has no doubt, according to him, that "Showtime" Shawn Porter was cheating too when he knocked Paulie da double fudge out "because (Porter) had been a Pacquiao sparring partner, and thinks that Pacquiao is an all-time great."

To be fair to Paulie, he's a consistent a$$hole until you grease his palms. In that respect, he's typically good for how da game rolls -- seedy, shady, sneaky and sleasy. At least about 75 percent of it. Holla!

But barely squeaking by Ruslan Provodnikov in a fight that could have gone the other way didn't exactly make Chris a fighter that I particularly wanted to see again.....even for free.

But that's just me....

I can appreciate the local support for Algieri in addition to the allure that an over-acheiving novice can have on the imaginations of boxing fans.

"I think that if Pacquiao wins by a KO there are lots of people who will neither be shocked or amazed !"

I think that you hit it. Those lots of people aren't susceptible to put ons.

C-Al will be gone -- knocked da double fudge out -- before high noon on Sunday in Macau. Holla!

"Holy cow RG, I thought you first said 5 then 4, now 2, you must have learned something since arriving in Macau ?"

YES! I've seem that the Pac-spies in the Empire State and Sin City were generous about how uncordinated, stiffest moving C-Al is.

He moves and boxes and even walks robotic. In the boxing game, we say, "He moves like he has a two-by-four up in his @$$."

The Long Island C-Al is long in size, but in fluidity and loosy-goosy, he's looking kind of spastic -- no hate or insult. Holla!

"I think Chris is just trying to carry the promotion. An arrogant person does not live in their parents basement, they just wouldn't do it.



I think he is just trying to overcompensate his nerves with confidence and it comes off wrong for the most part.



Who is gonna wanna throw down 70 bucks when one fighter looks already beaten months before the fight?"




Like I've told you guys, optical illusions are everywhere up in da game. Confirm, verify, verify again and verify what you have verified again and again.



A-Seng, you said that "an arrogant person" does not live in his "parents' basement."



'What if that 1,100-square-foot basement of a three-story mansion has been turned into a bachelor's pad with a kitchen, bedroom, sitting room/study room, dining room, a bathroom with a shower and a jacuzzi.



Great video-editing by HBO to hide the reality of the actuality. http:www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQftwJySVUM But you still notice how big the Algieri's family compound is.



Man, please! Doc M-cola ought to holla at those inkblot tests to see how schizophrenia C-Al might be, if C-Al had n ot learned to jive.



OMFG! Dude is a jive turkey. He ought eat him some water buffalo jerky. It has a different type of salt in it that will help chemical imbalances.



I would not trust C-Al as far as I can see him. He, Tim Lane and Keith Trimble are oddballs believing in their destiny and energy-stones-rocks-oils-and-lotion double fudge jive.



They would lie to Jesus Christ. And I bet that they can beat a polygraph. Holla!

I just can't see him being a PPV star, who will he have on side and what will he be able to produce that will have the fans forking out? There are so many more exciting talents in his division in my opinion for Chris to get a look in.

I've just seen a video of Pacquiao from this week.. He looks mighty fast and accurate. It still shocks me how incredibly fast he is.. A truly unique fighter that, Chris is going to learn the meaning of a Great Of All Time when he crosses Manny.

amayseng:

Or does he?

Floyd's last performance was a bore. His performance before that was exciting for 7 rounds as Chino roughed him up and wrestled him into excitement.

Manny's last two performances against Rios and Bradley were both exciting and good displays as he peppered them both.


Though an exciting PPV is certainly hopeful.

It's going to be well worth it Randy. I'm going to be ringside, it's going to be a great night of boxing Eddie has done us all a huge favour.. Early Christmas!!

Clevs and Tony will be going tooth and nail at each other, Groves and DeGale will do their best to look spectacular with world title shots around the corner for both guys, Quigg has a game fighter to fend off to keep a firm hold on his belt, Jamie will be in a tough fight against a seasoned Argentine.. And AJ has the biggest test of his career against Sprott!

All of this before the fights in Macua.. 22nd of Nov potentially best night of boxing this year!

Wow! C-Al is chameleon with his many personality traits.



He doesn't move those in da know. We know.



Dude has dropped from his manic high to all-time manic low.



In dat squared jungle, he's going to be so d@mn slow.



No energy stones, oils, lotions or the "energy words" of his trainers Tim Lane or Keith Trimble are going to help him flow.



Dude is already getting the Eyes of The Deer. That is why he is now wearing super dark glasses around the clock. From this Chinese's M-Island, dude is seeing ship lights coming and he's stuck staring on the dock.



Da Manny has this fight on lock. The tall deer -- I mean C-Al -- has gone into total shock.

Good mention about June. I keep overlooking that. I can certainly see Cotto holding out. Either way the two sides are going to battle it out for dates and ppv ratings ..if for anything ...bragging rights.

Thank Heaven for DVR. As I'll be working and unable to watch the card live, I'll simply set my DVR Saturday morning, then happily head to work, knowing I'll be able to watch the fight when I get home, and before I head into the SiriusXM studios for my Algieri-Pacquiao post-fight special.

Just to see the Cleverly-Bellew rematch would be enough for me. But, I find it tremendous that we'll also be able to see Scott Quigg, Jamie McDonnell, George Groves and standout heavyweight prospect Anthony Joshua all on the same card.

I love my DVR button!

Saturday is gonna' be like Christmas Day for us fight fans!

"I used to give inkblot tests and related “projective” tests for a living. Basically, show the subject/patient something that has no specific meaning or identity, or one that is hidden from them, and they will “project” their own mental structures, hang-ups, conditioned ways of seeing the world on it. Incredibly powerful tests. Can’t be faked- because the faked answers are as revealing as the honest ones. No one agrees on who C-Al was, that guy they saw in the ring. And as for using his answers about handsomeness to prove his conceit or arrogance, he was spoon fed a question and answered it with an ironic chuckle. I know Chris a little from two gyms. He’s just not an arrogant guy. He’s self-contained, helpful, speaks the same way to the janitor as to his sparring partners and their Moms. Respectfully. He knows he lucked into the Provodnikov fight but proved both great discipline, heart, and tremendously improved boxing skill in fighting at a world class level with one eye with the whole world watching. And as for being overconfident, he knows who Pac is. He also knows that, and this is just true about him, there is nothing short of unconsciousness that can make him deviate from a fight plan. It doesn’t matter that its Pac in front of him. It is how he lives his life. Now, I never bet against Pac. I have money on both of them this time, because I know things about Chris’ adaptive ability and focus that none of you except Commish have any way of knowing personally. He is a unique kind of fighter. And whether he wins or loses on Saturday, he is going to be true to himself and his strategy, and if he loses, he will be at ease with the fact that the better man won, not because he screwed up. All the rest of the opinions are speculation - projection. You don’t know him, you just know generalizations about fighters. Some are different. However, good he turns out to be, what I wrote above about the man is accurate. As for the PPV question, the story, which is made essential by the presence of Manny and the unusual circumstances under which Chris got the gig, belongs on PPV. Chris’ record by itself doesn’t. But he may after Saturday. As for me, I’ll be both happy and unhappy with any outcome."

Supreme stuff, mortcola. I can totally see that in him, too. I believe what you say.

Hey, would you mind sending me examples of those tests?

Pacquiao Needs To Shock and Amaze Versus Algieri

What do the names Joshua Clottey, Antonio Margarito, Shane Mosley, Juan Manuel Marquez, Brandon Rios, and Timothy Bradley have in common? If you need more than a fleeting moment to answer that, you are not even a quasi-boxing fan. Those names represent Manny Pacquiao's opponents in his last eight fights. He fought Marquez and Bradley twice each, and went 2-2 in those four bouts. Not only have the six fighters listed above shared the ring with Pacquiao, every one of them went the distance with Manny and Marquez stopped him. Pacquiao hasn't...

Chris Algieri Is Charismatic And Tough... But Is He A PPV Fighter?

I get the notion that he is supremely confident and fearless. I don't think he's one of those fighters who are consumed with "what if I lose" like many other fighters are. My impression of him is that losing doesn't lessen or define how he sees himself as a man. I'm speaking of Manny Pacquiao challenger Chris Algieri 20-0 (8) and that was the content of an e-mail I exchanged with a great friend whose boxing acumen I have as much regard for as anyone I've ever met in my life.
