Recommended Posts

Well it rained hard here in the Philippines just a while ago, then now its sunny. Will be going to the restaurant where Ill be watching the fight. Its $8 with meal and a large TV screen. Here, even IMAX have it. lol.

You guys enjoy the fight ok? GET IN THE RING!!!

They are not going to price out their people from watching their god.

Prawn cocktail brigade. There is no fucker there! If I paid $75,000 for tickets, I would certainly want to see every last second of that undercard.

PS

Guide to the undercard,

Well, this is a third world country afterall, but PPV is still up. Now $60(from usual $15-25). This fight, 5 star hotel bufetts to lowly restaurants show it. IMAX have it for $20.

It is, yes   Up North they even bung it on the end of sentences, inexplicably!  Example: Normal Human Being:  Alright Ted, where you off to? Northern Pig:  I’m off up t’pub like!

The fight that Leonard claimed 'taught me survival' and also led to his retina problems later.

I laugh heartily at anyone who paid for that shitshow.

Botham (I am watching England v the Windies) has just said he is not watching it because of the time difference. He said, ''these things start at 11 but the fight does not begin until 3 am'' and ''it will be on 28 times the day after'' but that ''it will be a great fight''.

I wonder if Angus Fraser is gonna stay up for it

I'm 4 beers down, its coffee from here on in.

I know Floyd's been chopping wood and swimming which he's never done and he's hired Ariza (GREAT conditioning coach regardless of being a shit stirring dickhead, Floyd SR certainly doesn't like him after a short spell 'Alex Ariza don't know shit about boxing' lol) and has said he'll attack Pacman but nobody really believed that. I'd think it's more to do with being unhappy with his Maidana performances and accepting his reflexes and speed have decreased and trynna compensate a little to be better in holding his ground but now I read something about he has less padding than usual. Maybe he is trying to make a statement at his career's end?

I'm sorry but this guy Pacquiao will knock him the fuck out if he thinks he can walk him down and get him out of there. Floyd can knock Pacquiao out but it'll come from a perfect counter like Dinamita, make no mistake Floyd can sit down on his punches. If he plans on lighting Pacquiao up though and bullying him, he will be massacred. Roach has even prepared Pacquiao for this possibility, which will make it even worse for Mayweather. He's a counter punching genius useful in the trenches but it's not his natural approach, he'd be insane to do that on this stage as well.

I've got the rum and sausage rolls going, I couldn't watch it in a pub too much to distract me, not even watching the undercard fights, wish they had one like Garcia and Matthysse again. Provodnikov Matthysse would've been perfect/

Yeah, nice having Santa Cruz and Lomachenko on it, but at least give them an opponent who could win a round. Cayetano is putting in a good effort, but he's just not on the same level as Santa Cruz. Guess the promotors figured they didn't need good undercard matchups to help sell this one.

I've always said Floyd wins a decision against Pac any day of the week, there's definitely massive IF's with Pacquiao but I still think Floyd is too smart, too cautious and he won't risk taking anything serious in return, but his workrate is going to have to go right up here and that leaves a lot of problems, I think he'll deal with it though, if I've learned anything it's never count Pacquiao out but never doubt Mayweather's ability to win.

There is surely no way he tries a Leonard against Duran here.
