I’m really tired of hearing Floyd and Pacquiao talk now, along with a million others. Pacquiao was juicing, to most people without bias that is quite clear. Floyd and Arum have too much bad blood and it was never going to happen, simple. Manny is being thrown to the wolves. Why did Arum put him in with Marquez for the fourth time? Arum will either have a new start (Rios) to market or he can market Pacquiao as rejuvenated and make more $$$ of him.

At this point a Pac/floyd fight makes no sense. doesn’t matter who loses or who wins, the point is the fight should have been made when they were both closer to their primes. fighting now would be pure entertainment. By the way, are guerrero and ortiz on target to become hall of famers or at least….great? of course not! But of course, these aren’t the only two relatively unknowns of their level floyd has had the audacity to fight, which begs the question, how does fighting these types of fight make floyd great? Simple answer, it does not. So that some don’t fall off track, no one on any message board has ever stated floyd sucks as a fighter because that simply is NOT true nor accurate however, the level of oppostion regardless if the opposition held a belt mean nothing. the belt doesnt make a champion much the same way floyd was stil floyd without any straps. Will be interesting to see who floyds next 5 opponents will be. Fighting anyone who has no legitimate chance of winning and no possibility of making the fight highly competitive or worse, where the odds of Floyd winning are -750 are a complete waste of time for floyd and a waste of money for the fans. Floyd, what have you done for fans lately besides fight unknowns and has beens?

JMM was targeting Pacman with that right the whole round, as if he knew that if he landed it, it would be lights out and sure enough he did. Rios will probably get outboxed big time, but you can rest easy that Rios won’t just lay down, He is gonna try to hit Manny with the Kitchen sink and if he does, I don’t know gents.

Rios is lucky Cuban Abril is not a big puncher because he was landing on Rios all night long… hurt Rios a couple of times.. Rios just gets hit way too often, has Zero defense and against Paquiao that means he’s getting KO’d.. We’ll be here talking about how badly Rios lost the day after just like Mayweather vs Gurerero…

I agree with those who say that Pacman will beat Rios, anyday, and that he seems to be over the hill.

If it turns out that Manny can’t destroy Rios, a good fighter, it’s clearly time to stop.

You can’t live on the past, especially not in boxing. I mean, you can’t keep losing, and still see yourself as the main man.

I hope that we get to see the magical Pacman, against Rios, but it won’t prove anything. At this point, Manny should stay clear of Mayweather. A dream scenario, would be for him to rematch Bradley and Marquez, and win, but that would take a miracle.

Concerning what Pacman and Mayweather does, in their free time, we know for a fact that Mayweather is a criminal, he has been to jail.

Thank you for the lead in Te Tumbo. Okay let me clarify some things here. Manny Pacquiao is arguably the greatest fighter to ever live. It’s between Sugar Ray Robinson and Manny. I think we can all agree that Manny won 3 out of the 4 times JMM and Manny fought, and the 4th fight will forever be under heavy scrutiny. Today, since the announcement of the Rios fight, fans are questioning Manny’s ability to be able to fight at the same level as before. Rio is a big guy, and he can punch. He has a fighting heart, and believes Manny underestimated him. Brandon and his camp are playing head games by using the disgraceful and toxic Angel Hereida. They think Manny’s granite chin will not be able to stand up. The whole world has doubts. They think he’s going to hit and he’s going to break. Today I also read the erroneous story that Manny went around beating up his opposition all while giving out money and rice. Serious? I despise when jealous people attack Manny Pacquiao with lies and slander. Now, Manny Pacquiao will systematically destroy Rios round by round. Manny will come back with a vengeance. His speed, power, athleticism will not be matched by a slow plodding, no defense fighter that is Rios. Manny is far from over, and this time off was needed because he’s been so busy fighting. He’s taken on the best and beat them all. Meanwhile JUan Manuel Marquez has ran from Manny since the fight. He knows that the lucky Ped Punch that landed will never happen again. He was being bloodied and battered until that that infamous punch, and he knows better than to take on the fury that is Manny Pacquiao. The political scandal is a joke, and Manny will be the honorable congressman that he is. Wait and see how everyone jumps on the Manny bandwagon once he comes back and destroys Rios. Having thought about how this fight will go, I’ve changed my view on this. My prediction is Manny Pacquiao by knockout in round 3 or 4. Trust me on this.

(second try and . . . ) PUGFAN, very good sparring partners regularly hurt and even Drop more prominent fighters. in this case, Rios is both and always brings the danger of Landing and Hurting and Dropping every opponent he faces. Pacquiao* is no polished boxer and Rios is no ringworn Margarito. the most Pacquiao* can hope for is a repeat of what Alvarado was finally able to deliver. Manny’s* also no natural welter and his chances v. today’s crop of jr. welters is arguable and that crop includes Rios. it’s a fight i’ve wanted since Alvarado moved to 140lbs and i think that a 147lbish Alvarado is only stronger. i’ll tell you one thing, Rios could benefit from an Heredia or Ariza conditioning program but i sincerely doubt that he has the laser focus and Spartan discipline of a Marquez to faithfully carry it out. nonetheless, Rios by KO whatever round. he only needs to improve his defense enough to engage Pacquiao* on the inside, which is how he will win. we’ll see how Pacquiao* stands up to a slugfest v. a prime slugger with a sturdy (albeit mildly dented) chin and jaw. i just hope we don’t see “Sugar”(?) Manny* Pacquiao*. that’s the Mfr that failed to defeat Bradley, was potshotted, and finally DEMOLISHED by Marquez the Greater. that guy may actually have a chance because who wants to give Rios a bout on the scorecards? that ain’t gonna happen . . .

If you guys have a chance, check out Vice magazine’s documentary on politics in the Phillipines so that you can put into perspective what Pac is being accused of and what happens there on a daily basis. Being a Politician in the Philippines is basically the most dangerous job in the world. Guys running for office down there basically need their own private armies to prevent other politicians from blowing them, and their whole families, up. As much as Manny is loved in that country, he would probably not survive a trip to the supermarket without a motorcade of armored cars and heavily armed men.

With the caliber of potential opponents for Pac, he has to forgo all the sideshows he has outside of boxing. If he does not give his full concentration on this coming fight with Rios, he will lose and it will game over for him then. The erosion of his abilities from his prime years showed during his last three fights. His speed and footwork he showed during the de la Hoya fight were nowhere to be seen in his most recent fights. But then again, every boxer will always have his time to hang it up creep up on them. Good luck Manny and thanks for the great times you provided for all of the boxing fans !

The link is wrong. It’s all about politics and slandering each politicians name. Fortunately, we all know that Emmanuel “Manny Dapidran Pacquiao is an honest, sincere, caring, loving God believing human being, and he wouldn’t do such a thing. He does what’s right for his people that need him. He doesn’t need money, power or beat someone up in public. Come on, don’t believe those erroneous articles trying to harm this outstanding person. 8 time division world champion, 10 world titles, first to win lineal championships in 4 different weight classes, 2000 fighter of the Decade, three time fighter of the year, congressman, singer, philanthropist, bible study teacher, fighter of the poor and you really think he’s going to do something dumb? Arum or anyone else cannot tell Manny Pacquiao what to do. he will bounce back with a stunning KO of Rios., so top with the what if he loses, come on, we’re talking about a legend that didn’t all of a sudden get old. He was brutalizing that muscle bound cheater Marquez round after round. And then the infamous Ped Punch landed luckily, and Marquez hit the jack pot. Manny as all great champions will come back. I sure do hope cheater Marquez and chicken Floyd stop running from him. Even at this age, Pacquiao has enough left to beat Mayweather, and Marquez is easier to beat. They sure keep running from Manny. Someone make these fights because those fighters obviously don’t want any part of Manny Pacquiao.

JMM couldn’t and wouldn’t have beaten the big names Pac fought in his career (even a weight drained DLH, limited Hatton, Cotto, Margarito, Mosley, and even fvcking Clottey).

potentially finished at 33 while Marquez and Mayweather are still going strong at 36 and 39. that is one dimension of ATGreatness that i presume Pacquiao* will never be able to claim. win or lose, Rios figures to exploit Pacquiao’s* with Rights that he knows Pacquiao* can’t avoid.

Rios is hittable, but his defense is good and he is tough as hell. Rios also doesn’t cut or get marked up usually. So I think Pacquiao will have his work cut out for him. Rios is tough and there is no shame losing to him. I don’t think Manny would need to think about quitting if he lost. It would depend on how he lost. If he was blown out and Rios controlled everything then yes he should retire, but if it’s competetive and close there isn’t any shame in losing. I hope Manny wins though and gets Freddie his revenge.

MR.MILLER

Yeah SRedmond, that’s what I’m saying, he’s better off as a jw than a full welterweight with his size.

Rios is already punch drunk and slow. Does anyone on here even watch boxing?

SRedmond: That’s what I’m saying; he’s better off as a jr. welter than a full welter.

The 2 catch weight kings / Cherry pickers should have fought back in 2009 which I think Pacquiao would have won today he’s a shell of his former self

Pac man woulkd power through Broner at lightweight, what on earth are you talking about, broner would destroy pacman in his current form!!!!!

Everyone calm down. No way is Rios gonna defeat Pacquioa. Rios has no defense, Pacquioa will win by TKO in the 6th round. Pacquioa is still deadly and he has nothing to fear from Rios. Rios will stand there like Margarito and get beat to the punch. I expect Paquioa to KO Rios if he DOESNT then he needs to retire. No decision but a KO.

If Pacquiao loses to Rios watch how fast Arum will try to make a Mayweather fight…..the last payday to milk out of Manny.

Mr Miller, Floyd has never been more than 151 fight night and that was against ODH… He’s ripped so he looks very muscular truth is he’s a small man…

MR.MILLER

Correction: If a jm can move up to LHW than a welter can move up to Super middle .

Posted May 15, 2013 7:20 am 


MR.MILLER

The way some of these can rehydrate like canelo and Trout did I wouldn’t think that Pacman’s best division as being Welter, more like 140, jr.welter. If these JM’s can move up to LW by fight time then a welterweight can make jr. middie.
I don’t know what Floyd and guerrero were at when it came time to get into the ring but May looked thicker than his opponent.

If Pacquaio loses to Rios it’s over!! He needs to win impressively losing is a death blow for him.. I’m a PAC Man fan if he’s still 87% of the same fighter he should find a way to stop Rios…

I thought Rios won his last fight. I don’t think that type of loss that he lost is really to affecting on his mental make up. Even though Ruis is a blown up lightweight he still punches hard and this will test Pac. And lately Pac has only been k own to fight for 30 seconds to a minute each round and Ruos will force the action.

LMFAO. Arum knows damn well Pac has no chance of losing this. Why would he pick a guy coming off a loss to fight his cash cow?

Come on, Pac may be done when it comes to Marquez but Rios just lost to Alvarado and robbed Abril. His a flat footed face first plodder taylormade for Pac to ktfo. Just wait and see this fight should not last more than 5 rounds otherwise Pac should just retire and go back to banging hoes and gambling on chicken fights.

Pac won the lineal 126lb title when he demolished Barrera in 2003 and also won the lineal 140lb title upon destroying poor Ricky Hatton in 2009. That’s pretty impressive in its own right to win the lineal featherweight and junior welterweight titles against much more than paper champs. Who knows how much good PEDs had to do with though ya know.

Pacquiao is done

Pac also ducked a few people on his way up just like y’all say Floyd did.

Many is not an 8 division champion. He is an 8 division titlest but not the champion. He has only held the championship at 130 and below. Not real sure if he won the championship at 140 but I know he has won the championship at 122, 126 I think and at 130

Don’t ever underestimate arguably the greatest P4P boxing champion of all time. The only 8 division boxing champion in history. This man can do what no other human being can do. He might even win a 9th world title if he decides to. Seriously, Manny Pacquiao is one of a kind, and his boxing skills and will are unmatched. There is no one that can match Manny’s speed, power, will to win or his courage. Never count out the legend that is Manny Pacquiao.

And that is the question that we want to know the answer too

The problem for Manny is, there are a lot of guys at 140, who’ll be fast enough to land on him. I still think he’ll be a force to recon with anyone though. But you never know if his chin will display memory from Marquez’s brutal KO, of him.

Posted May 14, 2013 11:33 pm 


Tomato Can

Come on now, Pacquiao is never going back down to 135. No way. and if he does he’ll get koed again. Why would anyone want Pacquiao try to kill himself to make a weight, he’s out grown, when there all kinds of good fights for him from 140-147?

Prof Konje

If a fighter continues to lose in his weight class, and finds it necessary to drop to a lower weight class, he may want to think about ending his career. Of course there are exceptions and some do well dropping in weight, but age must also be taken into consideration. Pac-Man may be near the end of his career and it may be time to get into politics full-time.
