No Bigger Mexican Welfare States then California, Texas, Nevada, New Mexico etc,, when it comes Mexicans Leeching off of the USA Government.. California is almost Bankrupt supporting all those tiny Mexicans.. usually 10 babies to each waddling Mexican Host Momma… They’re a plague of illegal Mexican Parasites that have infested those states… as well as the Billions spent on Prisons to house the Millions of mexican illegal Criminals…

“anymore”? i can’t recall when Enema ever talked boxing. it’s always been nothing but a flood of bitter piss trying drown-out the actual achievements of Chicano-Mexicano ring-warriors. as if there were a comparison, i.e., Mexico is an independent and sovereign republic of (according to Enema) 1 quadrillion warriors. PR is and has always been a territorial welfare island of a mere 1,000 to hear Enema piss and moan about it but it’s one-on-one in a boxing ring. pay no attention to the quadrillion Mexicans thate he imagines glaring over the shoulders of every Mexican ring-warrior.

Cotto is Arum’s property and he isn’t gonna allow a GBP fighter cash-in on ending Cotto’s career. Garcia is going to do a demolition job on JuanMono. nuff said. i like Garcia but he’s gonna have to do a lot more than re-expose Khan’s suspect chin and beat-up on ringworn feathers and helpless jr. welters. in fact, the Judah fight was a bit too competitive down the stretch when Judah usually wilts, i.e., when was the last time Judah finished a fight v. a truly elite figher? Hell(?!), even Clottey bumrushed Judah out of the ring before the final bell and that was five years ago. Garcia needs to step up to the likes of Mathysse, Thurman, Peterson, or even Maidana before he can truly be considered top-notch. RoMono Martinez owes Burgos a rematch. Burgos owned this plodding, chin-first slugger. just another example of hometown scoring for the Rican fighter in NYC. bottomline, Mexican ring-warriors dominate in the respective weight-classes of every fighter mentioned. Canelo at 154lbs; Marquez, Guerrero, Ortiz, Alvarado, Rios at welter; Mares, Garcia, Ponce, Gonzalez, Salido (“BOO!”) at feather. Ricans are just opponents and set-ups, i.e., what “rivalry”?

Sanchez v. Gomez, JC Chavez v. Rosario v. Fuentes v. Camacho v. etc., Margarito v. Cintron v. Cotto, Segura v. Calderon, Salido v. Lopez are the signature matchups of the “rivalry” (pft?!), which can be summed-up by the expressions of utter despair, desperation, and even shock on the faces of Gomez, Rosario, Camacho, and Calderon as they melted under the intense heat of Mexica-ferocity. Cotto smartly resorted to the “Boricua kneel-down” to avoid further punishment. JuanMono didn’t even have the opportunity to concede. his KO losses were simply too sudden and devastating. these days, the “rivalry” has been reduced to JuanMono traveling to Mexico to challenge(?) for the Mexican Cantina Title v. a Eugenio Lopez with 25 losses (17 KO) but also 31 wins (you just can’t keep a Mexican ring-warrior down). this tune-up(?)was apparently the most JuanMono would risk before his bout v. Garcia. it’ll be hyped-up as the latest “showdown” of the Mexico v. PR “rivalry” but as i’ve just pointed out: what “rivalry”? more like predictable beatdowns courtesy of the unrelenting fists of Mexican ring-warriors whose motto is “have plenty of heart. will travel to Fight”.

“Mexicans and Puerto Ricans should kill the rivalry”. TOMATO CAN, the so-called “rivalry” was put to rest in 2012 when Rican boxing was BLITZED in their own backyards and relegated to the C-list by Mexican ring-warriors. it took Enema four (4) entire months to recover and dare post on these message boards again (lol). at this point, his meltdown has become epic. NObody on ESB (not even a Pacturd) has ever been so obviously and severely traumatized by a jolt of boxing reality, courtesy of (who else?) “Meh-Hee-Ko! Meh-Hee-Koh! Meh-Hee-Koh!” (lol). bottomline, the “rivalry” has always been nothing but a promotional ploy to sell PR fighters who can’t shake the scary image of 1 Trillion Mexicans staring over the shoulders of every Mexican fighter preparing to send another Rican hype-job to the crap-heap of boxing never-was’ . . . “Cannn-Tahhh y no Llores”

Truth is that in Pacmans magical period nobody could touch him, clearly not Mayweather, who has always met boxers, when they were down. Sad that Pacman vs Mayweather never got going, Mayweather was panicking over losing his 0 then.

Now Mayweather is a great boxer, no doubt about it, but people watch his fights to watch him lose, they watch Manny because they saw his magic. Times has just changed, it’s that simple. But Mayweather is the last boxer, to accuse others of using PEDs.

More Hitleresque hate speech by ESB’s Afroslickcentrists saying Morales and Barrera were not slick even though they outslicked many of the slickest, or that Morales was past it when he lost to Pacman but not when he lost to Zahir Raheem. Second of all, Morales looked like a fat ol bullfrog when he moved up fight Zahir and Manny had just moved up when he lost Morales. Bottom line is that Mayweather ducked them all.

“Btw, i plan to apply for dual citizenship in the near future as is my right as a U.S. citizen of Mexican descent, i.e., the best of both worlds. we’re lucky that way.” Actually, the United States doesn’t recognize dual citizenship.

Im not saying that there arent any because I personally do know of 1 mexican that is mixed but guess what? They confuse him with either boricua or brazilian or central american but never think he is mexican. AND he is PROUD to be Mexican. He carries that heart… that pride. That is something most mexicans are known for. (take notes son) On the flip side of things, anyone that speaks spanish is automaticly a “mexican” eg. mexican race. Bet that ticks you off dont it?

Of course there can be a number of champions in any one weight division in MMA, depending on who they fight for but here’s a list of champions for you, Monzon. Notice that none of them are “Mexican.” Unless you want to split hairs of course. Nationality is based on where you are born, not on descent:

Tony Lopez – American
Cain Velazquez – American (NOT MEXICAN!)
Jon Jones – American
Anderson Silva – Brazilian
Georges St-Pierre – Canadian
Derek Campos – American
Benson Henderson – American
Jose Aldo – Brazilian
Dominick Cruz – American
Demetrius Johnson – American
Mitsuhisa Sunabe – Japanese
Mikihito Yamagami – Japanese
Amanda Lucas – American

Ronda Rousey – American
Barb Honchak – American
Carla Esparza – American
Michelle Waterson – American

Still if you go through the long list of all the current MMA champions, in reality, “Mexican” champs are few and far inbetween. In fact, based on nationality, there are none. Zero.

Cotto eyes $10 million purse against Canelo
By Rey Colón -The Sport Press

Three-time world champion in different divisions Miguel Cotto reportedly could earn a purse of $10 million in a September 14th showdown against undefeated WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. The fight would be a production of Canelo Promotions, Golden Boy Promotions and Miguel Cotto Promotions so the negotiations to reach a financial agreement shouldn’t present problems given Cotto’s close relationship with Oscar de la Hoya, President of GBP. Although Cotto has lost his last two fights, his market value hasn’t diminished dramatically due to how close the fights were against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and then Austin Trout

Pacquiao* was decked in round 3 and clearly dominated in round 4. replays reveal that he stepped on Marquez’s foot to score his own flash-KD in round 5. he scored a lucky right that stung Marquez but failed to follow-through. despite hysterical proclamations tot he contrary, Marquez was holding is own in round 6 culminating in the thunderous right-hand that he had been landing and trying to land all-fight long. the rivarly is OVER. Marquez is Greater. Viva Marquez.

T T- that’s the way the ball of boxing rolls. When you put asses in seats and hold all the marbles, and fans come because of you, then Pac is within his ring the slice the pie as he sees fit. Pac would love to avenge that loss but as I stated, JMM is smart not to. However, Pac had no reason to give JMM a rematch for 3 or 4 ….BUT….the fact he is the real warrior he did so. Whatever, Pac still has 3 victories over JMM and JMM has a Hail Mary over Pac. Incidently, that’s how David Hayes wins his fights.

“Pac was clearly dominating JMM” Wrong. going into the 6th round Pacquiao* was ahead by a single-round. he then committed the HuuugE mistake of throwing caution-to-the-wind and charging right into Marquez’s right, which had been Marquez’s primary weapon throughout the entire rivalry but even more powerful and lethal due to Marquez’s transparent preparation and public declaration that his goal would be to KO Pacquiao* and not rely on the Arum-approved panel of judges. Mission Accomplished. unlike Roach and Pacquiao*, Marquez follows through on his promises.

Unofficial means just that, UNOFFICIAL! A fair argument can be made that whoever had won their previous fights deserved to win because they were that close. We would have had the same debate if the roles were reversed and JMM had won the prior fights. That is, until the last fight were Pac was clearly dominating JMM until the very end and JMM capitalized on Pac’s minor mistake. In my view JMM may have won, but not because of any special like winning majority rounds. Certainly appeared impressive but Pac has won the majority of their encounters, and clearly was winning the last fight which is why, and a very smart choice of JMM to not even entertain the slightest thought of reengaging Pacquiao.

Marquez smartly rejected Pacquiao’s* bogus challenge and insulting offer (less than half of what Pacquiao* collected for IV?!?) and is focusing on ring-legacy instead. Marquez will defeat Bradley and place an exclamation point to his rivalry-ending KO of Pacquiao* then retire to enduring ATGreatness. no pouty, unavenged, post-loss retirementS for Marquez. simply a “Mission Accomplished” banner headlining his write-up into the HOF.

Pacquiao* won’t test. not even for $50 million. there is no circumstantial evidence more compelling to suspect Pacquiao* of foul-play BUT he is no cleaner or dirtier than Marquez according to commission-approved testing. after all, we’re not going to rewrite the rules of boxing to satisfy desperate Pactards.

Posted May 9, 2013 10:59 am 


te tumbo

the unofficial scorecards in Marquez v. Pacquiao* II and III favored Marquez. punching skills and masterful execution favored Marquez in IV; the bout to “answer all questions” and “remove all doubt”; following the “best training camp ever” according to Team Pacquiao*. despite all of the tax-saving advantages of fighting in Mexico, Manny* prices himself out of a fifth matchup (half of what he earned for IV?!?), and lures Rios to China(?!?) for what promises to be a chin- and gut-checking brawl that Rios must win by KO to foil the Arum-approved judging panel (see Salido v. Lopez II). i favor Rios. despite Roach’s deficit-reasoning that the primary reason they chose him is because Pacquiao* was dominating Alvarado in sparring, i have not faith in that type of retarded boxing-math and believe Rios will be bigger, stronger, and more determined than ever for a variety of very good reasons to KTFO of Pacquiao* once and for all. i would not be surprised if Pacquiao* experienced permanent damage after trying to exchange v. Rios. this may be a set-up but it’s no mismatch. Rios by KO. Pacquiao* has never faced a stronger or more determined fighter with both eyes still in their prime.

Pacquaio is gonna go down as one of the Greatest to ever do it but will he eclipse Floyd Mayweather historically ?? I dont necessarily think so barring a late career resurgence… Pacquaio is an amazing fighter but he has been knocked out 3x and absorbed 4 legit losses in his career (give him a break in Bradley) his fights with Marquez have ALL been debatable absent th last one which was super conclusive… Meanwhile history is gonna show that Floyd beat Marquez for 12 full rounds… Mayweather pretty much makes every bout looks EASY..And at this point has one of the most coveted 0′s in boxing history… PAC man is 2 years younger than FMJ yet it looks like he might be becoming more and more vulnerable (time will tell) whereas Mayweather who is OLDER has all the young guns still trying to dethrone him…Marquez is GREAT, but it does not look good that Pacquaio got knocked out by the close to 40 year old version of him…

No no no, Pacman with his magical powers of speed, defense and power, would have easily beaten Mayweather, easily. That was then.

Historically Pacman clearly is on top of Mayweather, in every way.

Regarding PEDs, I don’t trust Mayweather, at all. To be honest, I don’t trust any of the top level boxers, in that regard. At this time, 2013, Mayweather is the best, Pacman is over the top.

So now Mayweather is the boss, but over time Pacman is best, Pacman had a magical period, where he was one of the best boxers, i history.

Pacquiaos reputation cannot be saved by trying to tear down Marquez, this is a WEAK tactic being utilized by a PHONY Holy Man (Hecdog) who is very inconsistent is his views… He was PRO Rigondeaux who I agree fought a smart and effective fight against Donaire yet he pretends that bout was action packed??? Meanwhile he whines that Mayweather fought scared when he was simply cruelly efficient, busting Guerrero up and barely taking anything in return but again he is inconsistent… PAC Man will have to fight his way back to the top? No one is gonna forget his spotty 3rd fight with Marquez and then the mind numbing KO he absorbed, this is not criminal court where you can vacate reality and get a ruling that better suits your tastes… Pacquiao was knocked out and where he goes from here is honna be determined in the ring…

We don’t know what it is down to, but it is a fact. 2009 was the last year we saw his magical powers. Yes he is still a fine boxer, but Bradley, Marquez and Mayweather are above him now, sadly.

Posted May 9, 2013 1:45 am 


OCTAVIUS72

The reason Pacman loss that first fight with Morales was for two reasons. Reason one was because ALL HE HAD AT THAT TIME WAS A BIG LEFT PUNCH. He developed his RIGHT HAND in between fights plus in his mind he felt like going into that fight he did not have the proper gloves on. Second; in that first fight; Manny got CUT in I think it was the fourth or fifth round and it bothered him the rest of the fight. Morales was NO SLICK BOXER. Why you think he got his ass beat by Zahir Raheem. He wanted Raheem to go toe to toe with him but Raheem was too slick for him.

Posted May 9, 2013 1:22 am

Cotto is not a slick boxer, Barrera was not a slick boxer, he became a boxer but no he was not a slick boxer and he was out of his prime. Morales was not a slick boxer and he beat Pac. Yes Pac beat him the other 2 times but he was past it also as you could see when he got beat by Raheem. And as you already witnessed Marquez just KOd Pac

If you’re willing to say JMM was doing PED’s (which I’m not saying he didn’t) then you have to also admit, that it’s in the realm of possability that Pac also was doing them. But for now, the only thing we can say is both fighters passed there drug tests. So Apparently, if Marquez was doing them, then he knew how to beat the test. Is this something that only he and his strength coach knew how to do, or is it more than likely common knowledge in the boxing community?

Posted May 8, 2013 11:59 pm

I didn’t say Pac was at that point. But I will say, Pac has taken damage in a lot of fights over the years. He’s had over 60 fights. Yes it was one KO, but that KO was brutal. That was the type of KO, that some fighters never come back from. The brain isn’t meant to be bounced around in the skull. I think it’s safe to say Manny’s brain has riccocheted against his skull many times.

Posted May 8, 2013 11:53 pm

Stark, it’s not by coincidence that JMM started dropping guys in the gym ever since Angel Hereida, the well documented PED supplier to Olmpics athletes came on board. My cousins have watched that guy train live for years, and not once in his last 5 years or more did he drop sparring partners the way he was dropping them leading up the the MP fight. he never even came close to dropping MP, and all of a sudden he carries that kind of power? I was giving him the slight benefit of doubt until I heard the taped confession of Hereida. He said on the tape that he could mask anything so that it could not be detected. Now, if the NSAC tells boxers what they test for, do you think Hereida can get around it? Seems very simple to me. I have watched him train live in the past 5 years, and in thi fight his shoulders were massive. He has a small build, and was so off balance. I know it’s too late now to argue, but i saw what I saw, and IMO, he cheated on got away with it. Keep an eye on him for the Bradley fight.

He is the first former PNP to be KOd at 3 diffrent weight divisions I think he also holds being Ko,d the most in diffrent divisions and will go down as the KO of the decade possible century.

Also When they asked Manny on ESPN he had to put his sun glasses on. He was being interviewed with out his glasses and then when they asked that question he had to put his glasses on. Also ask yourself this. Why didn’t Manny fight any slick boxers? They saw how Morales boxed his ears off and wanted to stay away from boxers. You’ve seen what Marquez has done with his boxing skills against Pac. Floyd is head and shoulders against both of them. Floyd would of toyed with Pac and then everyone would of said that he was supposed to do that because Pac is naturally smaller

As far as Pacquiao is concerned, I hope he’s in good health after that brutal KO, and the affects of being in 61 bout’s and 61 training camps… I just watched a 30/30 program about the Muhommid Ali and Larry Holmes. They had a lot of good footage on the two fighters leading up to the fight. Muhommid should have never been in that fight. He was getting beat up by his sparring partners, he had trouble hitting the speed bag, talked much slower than in his early days, and was having memory problems… Boxing is my sport, but it can be a thankless sport. I wouldln’t like to see Manny suffer permanent damgage due to the fight game.

Manny Pacquiao, the only 8 division boxing champion in the history of boxing can hurt anyone from the welterweights up to the middleweights. He has that kind of legitimate power. His body build is always the same, lean and mean unlike the muscle bound Silver back Gorilla cheater JMM.

Manny Pacquiaois the most exciting and entertaining boxer of his time bar none.

Manny Pacquiao never ducked anyone. Floyd Mayweather had his chance, and he ran faster than he does in the ring. Manny spoke right to the ESPN cameras and told Floyd he would meet all his demands of testing and that he would accept 45% just to make the fight happen. Floyd never responded because he has ducked Manny from the start.

Manny Pacquiao can and has easily made plenty of money without Mayweather, so it wasn’t about money.

Manny Pacquiao will go down arguably as the best fighter of all time due to his titleshe’s won. At the end of his boxing career, Manny will be rated higher than Floyd Mayweather and much higher than the Ped Punching Marquez..

Rios vs Pacquiao will be the most exciting fight in history for the rounds it lasts. Another war like Hearns vs Hagler. Fans love real fights.

Manny may do the impossible and win a 9th division world title. Don’t be surprised.

From Ray Robinson to Ray Leonard, Manny Pacquiao stands above all of them.

Arums giving this fight to Rios but it should have been Alvarado, he earned it. But Arum figures Rios, a face-first fighter coming off a loss will be there for Pac to ko. He needs to pump some air back into his cash cow Pac, everyone else goes under the bus. Pac needs a ko and Alvarado who can box and coming off a big win is risky. If Garcia had a brain he would be trying to get Rios away from Arum instread of talking about Mayweather. A KO loss to pac after the loss to Alvarado and Rios’ will be lucky to get on ESPN. These Mayweather haters should try imitating his career management style and stop being led around by their nose rings.

I don’t justify a Top 10 P4P Fighter taking a Fight vs. a #0 P4P Figther WHO is coming off a LOSS. That’s called a CUPCAKE Fight. IF Floyd faced a guy coming off a LOSS he’d be LYNCHED….Though Sugar Ray Robinson took a Fight vs. a guy who LOST 5 of his last 6 but he still SPANKED Ray….Ray is BETTER than Pacquiao SO that means that Pacquiao could LOSE TOO.

when its all said and done Mayweather holds all the cards so i think what needs to happen is canelo and team should keep building their selves up and recognize whos in charge to do the dictating,some of you cats just want to see anybody dethrone mayweather so u come up with names like martinez, canelo, trout ,GGG look how good he is all of these guys are bigger than him he fights his best at 147 and he knows this even though he could compete at the higher weight but the man has 5 fights left let’s just wait and see who he picks if i was canelo id be very humble and try not to bite that hand that $may feed me……yezzzir!

LOL- Thats cause Canelo will not KILL himself making weight at 147lbs. This aint Pacquioa catchweights. Plus Mayweather always comes in heavy too. Remember the Marquez fight? Random testing no prob. Bottomline, Mayweather is not intrested in Canelo and when his mind made up, its hard to make the fight happen.

trout got smoked by canelo. utterly smoked and dropped. i would favor canelo against floyd. floyd wont have any speed advantage anymore against canelo. canelo will have the power advantage. i think floyd would look about 10 times more vulnerable against canelo than he did against cotto. and to you mayweather nut butter garglers. if your so sure may can beat canelo you should be calling for the bout. its a thousandfold better fight than ortiz, guerrero, kahn, ortiz rematch, and even bradley rolled into one. bahahahahahahaahahah!!!!

“canelo has no power”…..”canelo lost to trout”……..yes canelo has power son. he dropped trout after making him do the half harlem shuffle/ half oldanier solis (compliments of the goat vitlay klitschKO). the ONLY thing canelo needs to do is match his stamina with his body of work. which i think he will have done by the next time out. canelo’s style is very stamina taxing when were talking about both his defense and offense. before the alvarado fights i dont know who wouldve been favoring oritz and guerrero to beat rios. it wouldnt be any domination by any means and it wouldnt be now if rios fought ortiz or guerrero. there all b class fighters at best. that get absolutely schooled by the A class.

…..”Rios has an unusual chin (Margarito like)… Cheato didn’t have that tough a chin.. Nobody had a chance to test it because they were getting slammed with plaster and were worried about staying alive..

The minute he got caught cheating his chin turned to cheese.. Mosley smashed him out and Cotto was about to put him away in the same manner when the referee stopped it. Pacquiao felt sorry for him because he couldn’t defend himself. Pac eased up and let the cheater remain upright.. Cotto said he would have flattened Cheato, in much the same manner as Mosley did, in the round following the stoppage. The cheat couldn’t see out of his right eye at that point so Cotto was just starting to set him up for a killer left hook.

Manny Pacquiaos a GREAT ATG fighter who succumbed to his arch nemesis badly in his last bout… It’s only intelligent he face a Rios type fighter to begin the road back to Marquez which is the likely destination… If Marquez and Manny both look good winning against some younger VERY game fighters it sets up a BIG 5th battle..Rios has an unusual chin (Margarito like) and as much as guys have a 2009 conception of PAC Man in their heads he has NOT been knocking guys out at 147 that’s just a fact despite the excuses…it’s likely Rios will be there in round 12 still throwing shots and remember he gets to fight Pacquiao coming off the most brutal KO of an Elite fighter since Roy Jones got capped by Tarver and Johnson in succession….This is a good fight from where I sit and I will be ponying up the cash…

I’m not quite sure why I’m seeing so many posts calling Manny a fraud. While Floyd avoided fighting any good fighter in their prime and at their natural weight for the past eight years, Manny stepped up and fought contenders and legit fighters at 3 different weight classes, often as clearly the smaller fighter. You may not like him, and just like me, believe that Mayweather would beat him soundly, but to call him a fraud is ridiculous. Manny did what Mayweather should have done, line them up and knock them down.

Happy Boy don’t be so harsh my friend. First off, Manny is the smaller guy in this fight. He’s always been the smaller guy. Rios will make him look like a midget. Secondly, Arum has control of Manny, and everyone is going to be making a ton of money. Plus, this will be a very entertaining fight that people are going to love. Fans love fights, and not the type of boxing exhibition Floyd just put on. Floyd is a very good boxer with skills, but 90% of fans are fight fans. They don’t want to see Floyd hold, hit, move all night. Arum finds a way to make money, and that’s what all boxers are in it for. A title is great, but they need to make a living. Rios is no pushover. He has guts to stand and fight, and he has power, so Manny still needs to be careful. This is far from an easy fight, but it’s entertaining. The Arums, Kings, GBP are are scums. They use and manipulate fighters. It’s never going to change. Manny entertains like no other fighter. And the location of the fight comes down to money as it always does.

Pacquiao* is coming off one dissapointing and one Utterly DEVASTATING loss. he’s lucky to score a bout v. the virtually undefeated Rios whose only lost to a guy he had previously TKO’d. i actually believe that Rios will be stronger at any weight above 140lbs and Pacquiao* doesn’t KO opponents with formidable chins. he’s also vulnerable to uppercuts and right-hands, which are Rios’ bread and butter. the scorecards will definitely be rigged to favor Pacquiao* but who else other than a “flat footed use his face for defense Mexican” ring-warrior would have the balls to meet Pacquiao* in China for a fraction of the purse? Pacquiao* himself didn’t dare meet Marquez in Mexico for the same $3 mill that Marquez accepted for their last fight and he didn’t have a DEVASTATING KO loss to redeem. only a series of snubs and slights exemplified by the paltry $13 million he was recently offered to give Pacquiao* a chance to redeem his recent losses. Pacquiao* is a celebrity prizefighter but he lacks the heart, courage, and determination of a true ring-warrior.

Pacquiao* isn’t gonna KO Rios but Rios will have to KO Pacquiao* to win being so far away from home and so close to Pacquaio’s* desperate fanbase. i think Rios does it. Pacquiao* was never as good as so many of you insisted and even now after he was planted face-first into the canvas by a 39-year-old Marquez, some of you are trying to resurrect the optical illusion and delusion of Pacquiao’s* “greatness”. bottomline, Pacquiao* was at his “greatest” v. handpicked and compromised opponents but always struggled v. the one opponent who wouldn’t relent on his mission to hold Pacquiao* accountable for his corruption of the sport. even now, with Pacquiao* desperate to re-establish his prominence, he only offered Marquez $13 million instead of the $25 mill he collected to Marquez’s $3 million for their last fateful bout. one wonders what Marquez’s response might’ve been if Pacquiao* had agreed to flip the purse-split in Marquez’s favor for a 5th bout? otherwise, by once again placing money in front of his ring-legacy only re-confirms that Marquez is the greater fighter and ring-warrior . . . along with the #1 KO in Boxing History. that cred will always belong to Juan Manuel Marquez.

To put things in perspective : Broner would beat Rios, actually he would KHTFO to put it mildly. Broner is a 135lbs champ. How on earth does Rios get a Pacquaio fight? The right fight for Manny would be the guy that gave Bardley hell Prodnikov now that fight would be fair due to the fact that Bradley took a beating from that guy. Even in his loss he gained more fans and respect in the boxing world. Arum won’t risk a Pacquaio loss against that guy. Now I hope the morons know why we are pissed.

When the fact is that a weak edition of Pacman, can’t hang with Mayweather, Bradley, Marquez and probably some other fighters, there is no reason for him to continue. He beats Rios, it won’t matter, he loses to Rios, he is done, and probably even more scarred. I think too that he just took the fight from Bradley, but he wasn’t able to really hurt him, he was coming back in the Marquez fight, but he was hit so badly that he looked dead. Mayweather is now out of his league. There is no coming back for an old boxer, who can’t hurt opponents anymore.

“Rios has the skills and ability to deliver power shots to Pac’s head and chin. How Pacquiao takes these shots after getting hammered by Marquez will determine the outcome of the fight. We should see some blood. Pacquiao and Rios should see some stars.”

Now, I know you read and comprehend quite well. Please tell me where, in the paragraph above, that I said I “support” this fight in any way. I’m as surprised as you at this match-up. But that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t have an opinion as to how the fight will go.

Eventhough I am a Pacman fan, I know he is done, at the top level. Manny was hurt badly, in his last fight, honestly, Rios may be the wrong choice, too soon.

Lots of hate fro Floyd Mayweather Jr. I can’t see why? The guy is arrogant for sure but he is the top of the tree in this sport. Boxing is ‘hit and avoid being hit’ and he has done this for 17 years as a pro, you gotta give credit where it is due I feel. Manny is a different type of fighter, total opposite. An excellent defensive counter puncher like Floyd has eaily beaten any aggressive pressure style fighter he has faced. I strongly believe that Manny Pacquiao has declined since 2011. I also, and this is just my view, believe he wasn’t an entirely natural athlete. He still has more than enough in the tank to beat Rios, who I think is made for him.

Because of Brandon style, his boxing career may be short lived anyway, so a fight against Pac may make sense, especially for his promoter. It sure would have made more sense if Brandon had not lost to Alvarado, but sometimes you have to play the cards handed out to you.

Let me start by saying that Mayweather v Guerrero was a farce. But come on Rios lost to Abril and his last fight too. Top Rank is cashing out on Rios. Brandon has no chance in hell. Brandon won’t even get more than $5 mil for his troubles. This will shorten his career even more. Rios’ handlers are just ridiculous. Pacquioa can even rematch Bracdley for all I care. This stinks. All the morons who keep saying it’s going to exciting are retards. This guy couldn’t even put a dent on a skinny Abril. How the hell will he survive 6 rounds with Manny? Matthysse v Peterson now that’s exciting & GGG v Quillon now that’s excting, not this crap. Top Rank will put another Philippines v Mexico spin on this fight. Top Rank is worse than the child labour you get to see in the third world countries. Manny will get $15 mil Brandon will get $2 mill for his ass whipping. I guess nobody cares about Brandon’s health or well-being, right.

Boxing isn’t dying, it’s going strong. What was the only event where the venue sold out at every stage of the London Olympics???? Boxing!!! What were the 2 highest earning sportsmen last year???? Boxers!!! Some people will complain regardless. Football (soccer for you boys accords the pond) fans constantly complain about the game ”not being what it used to be”, yet it’s officially the biggest sport in the world. Some people are only ever happy being unhappy

Manny Pacuiqao is a bum. Manny, in his prime, got KTFO by a forty year old. He’s becoming immune to PEDs. He and Bonds should have a contest who has the largest HGH head.

Hidalgo – there maybe no love lost between us but there was a time I respected your stand and opinion in many cases on this site but to support Manny vs Rios whose smaller, his just come off a loss to a smaller boxer Alavarado and robbed Abril at lightweight previously, you’re a mental midget my man. Even if he wins what does it prove the guy just lost to Alvarado at 140lbs. Manny should have picked Bradley instead that would have been a reasonable decision but hell what do you know besides bashing Floyd Mayweather.

Manny is not even in the same league as Floyd. Pac has struggled his last 3 fights he is done. I seriously think at some point he was on PEDs. He declined too fast, Like Roy Jones after the balco thing came out a lot of athelites use the juice. Mw will destroy Manny if Marquez did him like that besides Arum is cool with pitting his fights against one another than was he gets all the loot. Smart but fighters like Bradley will never get a shot at Floyd, if you remember Cotto didn’t fight Floyd until he left top rank. Bradley will fight Marquez. and Manny will rematch him after Rios who by the way is hand picked, Anyone to thinks Floyd is scared of Manny really don’t know the sport…

Correction : Rios lost to Alvarado by UD, atleast Guerrero faught and beat WWs, was on a winning streak and had numerous titles, Rios is just another face first flat footed plodder being sacrificed for the almighty ¥/$ under the artificial sun for the ” Cherrypicker of the decade” to bask in false glory with super fools like hecdog, Hidalgo and Chicago Guy giving praise to their cult hero. Hidalgo you can’t have a go at Floyd claiming he faught an inferior opponent then support Pac for fighting a smaller fighter whose just suffered a loss and robbed another boxer, thats just being a hypocrite, Gurrero is infact a better boxer than Rios. You are being like you fellow cult worshipper hecdog who attacks JMM about PEDs yet worships Pac as if there are question marks about him and PED usage. I wonder if they’ll even test for drugs in China.

“Both you nuthuggers have lost your cred on any matters pertaining boxing.” What’s your problem now, Happyboy? So what if there’s controversy over the Rios/Alvarado and Rios/Abril fight. Brandon Rios does have power, he has 23 stoppages in 33 fights. Manny is coming off a devastating KO loss that put him unconscious for about three full minutes. Those types of KOs have long-lasting after-effects. Rios will have the opportunity to rattle his brain again. I didn’t voice favoritism for either fighter nor did I indicate in any way that I thought it was fair or unfair, realistic or unrealistic for Pacquiao to be fighting Rios. I just said there was going to be blood and stars. And there will be. And I’ll just leave it at that. For now.

Having the fight in Macau China can and will probably change PPV income forever. For those of you not familiar with Macau it is Asia’s version of Vegas and has the same franchise hotels but brings in 2.5 times more money per year in a country that has 5 times the population of the US. With the money conversion, the price of a PPV is equivalent to 5 dollars US in China. The potential for profit is 10 times that of having the fight in Vegas. If they make the money they are projecting, you may not see many more fights in Vegas. That is the real story of this fight.

I can see how some may wonder how Rios got chosen, but it makes sense if you think about it. Pac has lost his last two fights (no matter what our personal opinions on the losses are) and he’s got to give a good convincing win over a good opponent before stepping back in with the biggest threats. Besides that, back to back losses hits the confidence hard and he has the right to take a fight to get back some confidences.

It will be fun to see Rios go right at Manny and get K/O’d. I’m sure Robert Garcia will have a great strategy like he did for Donaire against Rigo. I am sure his corner advice will be something like, I know your getting you face kicked in but lively, lively do it for your family. It will also be entertaining to hear what ignorant garbage Rios will say after he loses in the post fight interview. Like that, nonsense he was rambling after the Alvarado 2 fight.

PEEJ, Manny Pacquiao is an amazing boxer to win 8 different weight division titles. And I’ll tell you why. I’ve met and seen JMM, Mayweather, Mosely, Margarito, Hatton and many other top boxers. Manny Pacquiao’s body frame is that of a featherweight. He is so small compared to those guys. His body is deceptive looking because on tv he looks like he’s a body builder, but it’s because he has nobody fat. These other guys are naturally bigger than Manny. He’s a machine for being so physically small, but he destroyed and beat the best guys around. Floyd will always be remembered for avoiding him. Manny Pacquiao is arguably the greatest fighter to have ever lived. Watching him train and spar is unbelievable. Floyd is a joke compared to what Manny does in training. Ask anyone who’s sen him train live when he’s serious reaching his peak.

@Stateside – How is this NOT weak? Who has Rios beaten? Rios got out-Boxed by Abril and got a gift. Alvarado was coming back the first fight. Alvarado won the second fight. So Rios has been in 2 wars and been dominated his last 3 fights and THIS is worth of a fighter of Pac’s alleged caliber?

I can’t see how any of you can make the case that this is a “decent” fight and then make the case that Pac in any way deserved 50/50. Pac is a fraud doing what frauds do. Fighting the same guy he has beaten a constantly. A flat footed use his face for defense Mexican brawler. If the fraud formula ain’t broke don’t fix it.

It’s a smart fight for PAC coming of the KO loss to Marquez. I don’t understands and the “where is the media, where are the commissions” comments. I do think Rios handlers are making a bad decision, but maybe they feel the time is now with Manny coming off the devastating loss. Not sure, but I know one thing…..fight fans will love it as long as it lasts!!!

What a horrible “come back” fight. Pacfraud goes out and gets a one dimensional fighter who’s style he as beating his whole career and doubles down on the weak sauce by tapping the guy coming off of a loss and two back to back WARS. And since it is in China I will let your imagination run wild with the testing enforcement. How much you want to bet there is no testing?

This fight is sad for Boxing, but more importantly sad for that young man Rios who may never be the same healthwise. Chewed up and spit out all for Pacfraud like Margarito was. Where are Rios’ handlers? Where are the commissions? Most importantly where is the MEDIA?!? Dan “The Fatman” Rafael if this isn’t something your hater PhD can’t pick apart you don’t get another honey bun. Right, all kissing Uncle Bob’s ring.

What joke of a Boxing fan is buying ANY of the nonsense Pacfraud and Rot Stank are selling? This fight is an example of more of the same from Pacfraud and the sycophantic media. Criticize Mayweather for fighting an ATG who asked for the fight, but give this complete cherry pick a pass. Main reason why I can’t even stand to follow Boxing media.

Look at that big skull….And I say skull, not head, for we know there is a huge vacuum inside…
Watch that look….does he have Down Syndrome? Some would ask what’s the point?
The point is:
1- That skull grew abnormally after he crossed the 25 yrs mark: the growth was chemically induced….
2- All the great fighters who have been managed by Arum have eventually left him, (Oscar, Tyson, Floyd), except one! The one with a Valuev-like head…

Let’s assume he is great, then he is retarded, therefore not great in the first place. Or , he never been great in the first place, and has been the puppet of Bob Goldman Freakestein Arum for the purpose of scamming the whole world.

Bob Goldman Freakestein Arum is going to CHINA, not for the best interest of Pacquiao and Rios….
Guess why?
Well, it is actually to expose his Chinese fighter! This is a market of + 1billions!!!!!
To cover up his real purpose, they throw out the tax issue in US….
Off course all the former D-student-boxing writers fall into the trap!

Tis, tis, Manny, Manny, Manny. Not much different than Floyd after all. Brandon Rios is made to order and is a smaller fighter, sound familar? Why doesn’t he fight Alvardo? I’ll tell you why, Alvardo has more craft than Rios that’s why. Manny is rolling the dice that he can get to Rios before Rios gets to him. Rios has a chance if Manny is damaged goods after being put to sleep by JMM. The fight will be short, either way and fight fans will be excited. Ding Ding Ding! What was that, never mind that was Floyd still sparring with Guerrero. Floyd better get his PR people started now if he wants to sell Amir Kahn as any kind of fight.

“Step up JMM or Floyd.” Marquez did; for the bout to “answer all questions” and “remove all doubt”; at Pacquiao’s* preferred catchweight; in a location of Pacquiao’s* choosing; and for an insulting purse-split that favored Pacquiao*. Marquez even offered to participate in random and mutually-applied testing, which Pacquiao* declined. the result? Utter and Absolute Mexecution of Pacquiao* and the #1 KO in Boxing history. none more convincing or dramatic. it has become “Exhibit A” for the existence of gravity. there is NOTHING that Marquez can do to improve upon the “desired result”. Marquez and Floyd have moved on. Pacquiao* can either play catch-up by redeeming his two losses or simply retire. After all, there are no longer any questions or doubt as to who is greater among Floyd, Marquez, and Pacquiao*. in that order.

Mayweather is not even a remote option. anybody who still believes that Pacquiao* can compete v. the likes of Mayweather hasn’t been paying attention to the sport of Boxing. i’ve never believed that he could and that any fight between Floyd and Manny* would be an anticlimactic landslide in favor of Mayweather who remains untouchable at welter and Pacquiao* is no middleweight. otherwise, he would confidently be challenging Canelo, which we all know will only happen if Canelo agrees to boil-down to 145lbs but Pacquiao* no longer has that kind of promotional clout. matching him up v. Rios proves it. Arum is willing to gamble that at least One of his fighters will emerge with that certain cashét that he values most. the other will join Cotto guarding the gate on the periphery of contention or simply retire, which will be difficult for Pacquiao*. three losses in a row essentially buries his legacy and compels some deep thought and analysis wondering whether any of it was actually true? or was it simply a brilliant use of promotional smoke and mirrors that resulted in the illusion of greatness but no actual greatness.

Pacquiao* is a derailed “freight train” coming-off of his underwhelming loss to Bradley and his utterly DEVASTATING KO loss to Marquez. he’s fortunate that his Bobfather is still able and willing to provide him with a virtually undefeated fighter to try and climb back into contention but rest assured: this is not a mismatchup designed to boost Pacquiao’s* stature like previous mismatchups, this is a test to see whether he (and Rios) belong among the top 140lbrs, never mind 147lbrs. Rios is forewarned by stablemate Margarito’s loss and i’m certain he and Garcia will avoid the same type of loss. he will definitely win if he’s able to lure Pacquiao* into a slugfest that will give Manny* frightening flashbacks of being revived from deep sleep after being FLATTENED by Marquez. however, i’m certain Roach thinks that he’s finally been able to teach Pacquiao* how to box and that as long as he’s able to avoid uppercuts and overhand rights, he’ll be all-right. of course, uppers and rights happen to be Rios’ signature punches. it’s gonna be a long and bloody night for Pacquiao*

Posted May 7, 2013 6:12 pm

Not hatin on Floyd, I admire the guy’s skills. But he quit challenges since he became a superstar. At least Pac went up to challenge guys that are physically bigger and heavier than him, catchweight or not. In Floyd terms, that means going up to super middle. But no, he does not have balls to do it. Honestly, both guys picked some bums here and there but Floyd cherry picked the most.

Also, the $40 million offer from Floyd is too low. What, Pac is gonna allow Floyd to take the rest? Assuming it is a $200 mil fight, Floyd takes $160 mil and Pac gets $40? Lol that’s laughable. Floyd priced his way out. He agreed to 50-50 on the first negotiations, so why change that? 60-40 could work but come on! You think people are stupid to bite that con?

LOL but I actually hoped Pac have agreed to that 40 to have a chance to see Floyd run and eat straight lefts all night from the midget.

In any case, I’m not sure why it’s so hard for some of you to get that a person can respect Floyd’s skills but find his fights a little less than dramatic. Same holds for Wladimir Klitschko. And if you guys think that Rios and Pacquiao are wild-men ‘swinging for the fences’ in comparison it’s really just an indictment on your lack of perspective.

There are no legal or medical restriction to the use of anabolic steroids in the Philippines and or Macau. Rios should be ware and if possible go to china and train there and also get himself on a steroid regimen as well. Everyone has seen Pacquio in the past when he would spend the first 6-8 week in the Philippines training- and utilzing special substances, and then coming to America only a few days prior to the fitgh– and then proceed to demolish fighters 3 weight classes over his weight.

Finally, the sport of boxing returns to its rightful owner. Manny Pacquiao brings excitement, class and unequaled boxig skills to the squared circle. Rumor has it that Floyd Mayweather off of his usual boring hit and run fight vs Guerrero sold under 1 million Pay Per Views. It’s no surprise that boxing fans are tired of watching Floyd’s hit, run, hug, over and over again. Manny Pacquiao is a true fighter that fears no one. He’s taken on the best, beaten the best and sadly lost to a fighter that was obviously on the PEDS. The infamous Ped Puncher has wanted nothing to do with a rematch against the legendary Manny Pacquiao. Floyd has been running for years. Now, we welcome back the greatest fighter of all time. The only 8 time division champion in the history of boxing. People have heard of this upcoming fight against Rios, and the stampede to buy tickets has already started. Fight fans love Manny and welcome him back with open arms. He’s has been on the cover of Time Magazine, met with and given advise to and President Obama, recorded hit songs, received best actor awards, fought diligently for his people as congressman, given away millions to those in need and given bible study to share his faith. Someone better sound the trumpets because the champ is back, and he will begin a second reign of terror. I would not be surprised if he wins a 9th world title. I can also guarantee you two things, JMM or Floyd Mayweather want no part of him. This is a great time in boxing. Manny will revive the sport as it was in its hey day. Let’s welcome back the legend.

JMM finally got his win against Pac and is going to run with it not risking it being him next. In fact it was very close to it being him before he looked at the canvas and winged a right. But if anyone believes JMM did not sacrifice his name for the win is in denial. He went through a second puberty at 39 years old. It was so obvious it was utterly ridiculous. He was sweating testosterone. FMJ is using his win over him to prop himself up but they didnt fight the same guy. JMM looked sluggy and pudgey. I have lost a ton of respect for him. He got his win…..but deep down until he dies he will KNOW what he did to get it. Sometimes he may not care. Sometimes he may feel deep shame.

Excellent math-up which is gonna answer some critical questions about both guys; how much fight Rios has left after 2 draining wars with Alvarado? after being knocked out cold by Marquez, will Pac be like RJJ after Tarver or will he be like Duran after Hearns? those questions will only be answered after this fight so it’s safe to say that nobody has the answers right now; I’m looking forward to this fight because I’m curious to know…

This is a repeat of the Diaz fight. Rios will eat bombs for about nine rounds until he doesn’t see one coming and land flat on his face in an AWESOME fan friendly fight. This is guaranteed moneys worth fight. Rios is tailor made but is getting paid! If he gets flattened his career is no different so he wont care. He will just say ….man it was Pacman on a mission after the JMM fight, did my best….and we will except it and he loses no credibility just a lot of brain cells. Gonna be a good fight……FMJ/Guererro? Fking sleeping pills not needed.

You mean another catch weight gimmick fight, but only this time outside of the country where there’s no commission? Sounds like Manny will be back looking like the incredibie hulk while making Brandon blow up 15lbs. Pacroid by KO

as long as FMJ has been fighting ( all his life), he would have been brain damaged by now if he didn’t fight the style he does, have known alot of fighters that are because they’re trained by limited fathers, limited trainers, or are complacent about training properly

If Pacquiao moves in and out it will be an easy nights work and will by one speed and over by the mid rounds. Rios was getting this fight regardless if the Alvarado rematch result, he is made for Pacquiao.

crown prince of wales`i’m assuming your talking about my comment but i’ll tell you now i love watching pacman in battle but i’m pointing out that floyd has a craft and style that your either going to love or hate and i love it because it let’s ppl know that boxers aren’t dumb jocks you have to be smart in that squared circle ,anybody can just go out there and slug it out but it takes skill to go in there and neutralize your opponent without getting chewed up,why do you think floyd is cashing out ,he’s smart he hasn’t substained any long term damage in his career because of his style and he can escape this brutal blood sport with his brain in the center of his skull and functioning and he did it while becoming the poster child for our great sport…yezzir!

If you think Rios is a wild-man you don’t know boxing. Dude has some skill. Hell, even Butterbean had skill, as he proved in quickly dispatching that fool in Jackass: the Movie.

Brick Sh*&#-house: keep believing everything you read on Twitter. If you want to know the truth, you need to dig a little deeper than that. The fine print on that offer included a clause that they had to wear giant inflatable boxing gloves and fight in a 50 square foot ring. At least, that’s what I read on Twitter.

anybody would like a wildman just swinging in fights.

Solid match-up, if, like me, you enjoy action-packed fights. Everyone saying that Pacquiao wins easy by KO seem to be forgetting that Rios has a great chin. Given that Manny was put to sleep in his last fight, one has to wonder who of the two is more likely to get stopped. All the Floyd apologists are just worried (and they should be) by how much more explosive and dramatic this fight will be than pretty much any of Mayweather’s fights since his match-ups with Hatton, Castillo and Corrales. Floyd gives us an exciting fight about once every five years or so while Manny does it in most of his fights. I’d still go with Mayweather over Pacquiao if they ever fought of course, as Floyd’s defense is impeccable. It’s also a good cure for insomnia.

Posted May 7, 2013 3:49 pm 


BRICK CTIY

well said Done Deal, also ppl forget Floyd was once the smaller man moving up to fight bigger guys.

Posted May 7, 2013 3:45 pm

Rios is taller, and has a longer reach than Manny. Rios may have lost his last fight, but by what, 1 or 2 points?? It was hardly a career threatening loss. Not like the brutal KO that Pacman received in his last fight – those sort of losses can damage a fighter, just look at RJJ. Rios is not on Marquez’s or Mayweather’s level for sure, but to be fair to Manny, JMM refused to give him a rematch, and we all know that Floyd has been cleverly side stepping a Pacman match for years, allowing the Fillipino’s prime years to slip away.

Posted May 7, 2013 3:42 pm 


BayAreaFightFan

Both Mayweather and Pac shuld be ashamed. What’s next for the them? Dionare and Rigondeaux? I get it, fighters move up in weight to challenge the big guns. But when you’re looking through a pool of smaller fighters and searching for your opponent that’s lame.

Posted May 7, 2013 3:41 pm

All the critiques but I am 100% none of us would last a single round with any of these super heroes.

Posted May 7, 2013 3:39 pm

all this hate for floyd and his style is getting pretty ridiculous fellas ,respect the man and his craft he’s a sight to see in that ring every performance ,i’m not a fan of his personality and how he conducts his behaviors outside the ring but boooy come fight night i have to watch the master at work the poster child of boxing displaying how the sweet science is suppose to be represented,don’t get me wrong because i could watch a gatti/ward type of fight any day of the week but to hone your skill and smarts in the ring ,figure your opponent out just from a couple of rounds and make them look average with the hit n not be hit style is just simply amazing to me is why i got into boxing in the first place…….yezzzzir!

Posted May 7, 2013 3:37 pm

Considering Manny got KTFO in his last fight, I think Brandon Rios is a reasonable match up for him. Rios is young, confident, in his prime and has a decent amount of experience too, albeit not on Pac’s level, but aside from Floyd who has? Sure Rios got hand picked by Bob for Manny, but seriously take a look at Pac’s last 10-15 fights….the list is awesome. Rios would would be a good opponent for virtually any other fighter from lightweight – welterweight. The fact that this is a confidence building fight for Pac tells you hoow great a boxer he is, even at this advanced, faded point of his career. Pacquaio via mid fight KO.

Posted May 7, 2013 3:31 pm 


Done deal

Pain you are blinded by your hate for Floyd. Not making to much since here. Rios lost his last fight, has no titles, and is coming up in weight but its ok for PAC to fight. Yet Floyd is criticized for fighting better boxers than Rios with better resumes, rank, and titles .

Posted May 7, 2013 3:27 pm

Bomb First, Guerrero is another of that list of former 130,135 and 140 pound fighters to fight Floyd and Guess Amir ( China Chin Khan ) is next

There were plenty of great fighters who boxed, that were not bangers. A majority of you are not fighters so u really dont know how it is.

Posted May 7, 2013 3:18 pm 


Bomb First!!!

Pain, there are two men in the ring. Guerrero was the one who said he was going to come out and jump right on Floyd . He didn’t live up to his promise. Floyd did what he was suppose to do, hit and not get hit. That’s the name of the game

Rios is #0 P4P. Pacquiao should look SPECTACULAR.

Pacquiao by stoppage.

Another easy prediction. Pacquioa by TKO.

Posted May 7, 2013 3:06 pm 


Pain

At least this kind of mismatch is edge of your seat stuff, not run around like a chicken when you could’ve knocked your mismatched opponent out.

Pac gives it his all for your money’s worth. Floyd plays it safe and laughs on the way to the bank. Big difference.

Posted May 7, 2013 3:04 pm

GREAT Fight for Arum. He has two guys whose stock has been dropped SO he sets UP a Fight where he’s guaranteed to come out with a guy whose stock has RISEN. SMART business move by Arum.

Posted May 7, 2013 3:02 pm 


Ray

Good action while it last. Brandon Rios is too stationary and gets hit easily. Pacquioa is still heavy-handed and very deadly at close range. This will be similar to the Margarito fight where Brandon will “try” to come foward only to get pummeled by Pacquioa and I bet Freddie Roach is counting on that. The only difference this time, is that it isnt for a bogus title.

lol i i meant in his prime and won.

Prof Konje

I agree with the author regarding the mystery of how Rios got a shot at Pac-Man. We all know that when it come to money Arum will sell ANYTHING to the boxing fans. Does China have a huge boxing fan base? I have so much to say about this that I won’t say anything.

Posted May 7, 2013 2:58 pm

Ok, ppl talk about floyd with his mismatches but who in the hell has pacman fought in their prime??????? no one!!!!!!!!!! I like Rios by knock out, hers a fighter whos in their prime who can bang. Bradley was in his prime and although it appears pac one, he couldnt put Bradley away and bradley had no bruises on his face.

Posted May 7, 2013 2:57 pm

Hell love this ,this will be a action fight as long as it last , pacman is on another level and will KO Rios I believe but its gonna be slugfest.from the first ding dong. MUCH rather see this one then Mayweather take on a no chancer.

Posted May 7, 2013 2:50 pm 


malachi

eazy fight for pacman but he won’t get too much backlash because his name doesn’t begin with floyd and ends with mayweather…yuup!

Posted May 7, 2013 2:45 pm 


Pain

How can you say this is bad fight? It has all the ingredients of a great action fight! I agree it is a bit of a mismatch, but remember, Rios TKO’d Alvarado and Pac was KO’ed. So this is fair.

This is a test of the waters again for Pac. No big name at welter right now to fight. Marquez vs Bradley is on. Mayweather still won’t fight and the rest of the good welters are with Golden Boy.

Alvarado is a tough sell, he plays the good guy while Rios and Pac may still have bad blood stemming from the Margo fight. And Rios talks TRASH.

Posted May 7, 2013 2:43 pm 


banjo

i agree. pacquiao did’t lose to bradley, although his mind certainly wasn’t in ‘i’m gonna take your head off’ mode and marquez was in the grinder for most of the fight and couldn’t have taken much more punishment before pacquiao forgot just who it was he was fighting. as fighters on the slide go, i’ve seem worse than pacquiao. i’ve a feeling this will be like the davis diaz or cotto beat downs.
