Chris Rock Weighs In on Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

Chris Rock sat down with HBO Sports a few weeks ago to discuss a host of sports topics.

Among them was Rock’s prediction on the May 2 pay-per-view showdown in Las Vegas between title-holders Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

Here is Chris Rock’s view on the blockbuster fight.




-Radam G :

He shoulda gone with what he told me. Floydulk is going to lose. Like by early kayo. Holla!

-Bernie Campbell :

What makes Chris Rock such an expert on boxing? I guess he belongs to the same club as fitty cent! And dont forget Sly Stallone always showing up to get his picture taken! Get em out! Get the Vaudeville Hook, we dont need em!

-brownsugar :

How big does a fight have to be before Chris Rock shares his massively astute pugilistic analysis? That's got to be right up there with the predictive talents of Bert Sugar and Virgil Hunter. When I saw the stool and the lights I was looking forward to seeing Chris do a little standup. Complete with sound effects, body language and bizarre facial expressions, but he just sits there and gives an opinion. ..... Boring Chris. I want to hear Chris riff on some culturally relevant satire as it applies to prefight psychology. Or at least do a Pac /Floyd impersonation. ... #disappointed. Maybe next time.

Rarely does a celebrity pick anyone but the betting favorite. They act like they will be fined or wont be able to get work anymore if they end up picking wrong so they all make sure to go along with popular opinion. I would just once like to hear "my brain says the betting favorite but Im going with my gut or heart and picking the under dog here". How many have "picked" Floyd to win then ended with "But I wouldn't be surprised, ,,,,". They are literally scared to make a real pick in public so they dont look dumb if they are wrong.
