Hedog – the greatest boxer ever getting KTFO by a 40yr old Lightweight, is that not an insult to the sport of boxing. You can’t be serious, and don’t give us that PED BS excuse as Manny was given the option to mutual drug testing which he refused again but then it seems Marquez has punched some sense into him.

pacquiao does not even make top 50 atg.Posted October 31, 2013 12:03 pm
HappyBoy my friend, good question. My list of the top 10 of all time are below. The first three IMO could be the best of all time. I think most will agree with me.
and just where do you rank Manny in the all time great list hecdog?Posted October 30, 2013 4:34 pm
MMendoza actually Floyd has fought most of his opponents when they where riding high on victory also. I believe maybe the only one was Zab. And that was because everybody was calling for that fight.Posted October 30, 2013 3:36 pm
MMENDOZA – You can include Cotto in that group of fighters that come to fight..no BSPosted October 30, 2013 3:06 pm
Win or lose, Pacquiao has fought top fighters just like Mayweather. A few times — but not always –the only small difference is that Pacquiao got to fight them by and large when they were riding high on their wave of victories. Both Pacquiao and Mayweather are tops in boxing — they come to fight boring or exciting — but they come to fight.Posted October 30, 2013 1:12 am
And what do you call a boxing-congressman superstar? Arum’s biatch!Posted October 29, 2013 11:11 pm
Floyd makes all his fights boring. He’s too damn good. He’s against amateurs in every fight. DLH, Hatton, Mosley, JMM all were boring against Floyd. They couldn’t do anything.Posted October 29, 2013 11:11 pm
Those words only show the fear that terrorizes him at the thought of fighting Manny Pacquiao. He should have played tennis. This the fight game where fighter fight. Floyd’s style is like watching the NFL play two hand touch football rather than tackle football. It’s boring after two rounds, and no one ever remembers those fights. They remember Tyson, Ali, Duran, Leonard, Chavez, Robinson and Gatti fights, but there are zero stand out fights that Floyd has ever had. He has great management that makes him money, but he will be forgotten once he retires. His legacy will be that of a good fighter that dodged many good challengers and was always scared to fight the great Manny Pacquiao. Yes he will also be remembered as the richest boxer and athlete ever. He will also rank in the top 50 best boxers of all time. I put him between 40-50.Posted October 29, 2013 8:52 pm
I am in the game to win, not just inside the ring, but outside the ring. My health is more important than anything. I don’t fear no one. If you’re insinuating that I’m a scared fighter, why would you want to watch a scared fighter? One shot can end your whole career. Boxing is a very deadly sport. I come first. Self preservation. I gotta worry about my family and health.Posted October 29, 2013 7:27 pm
ARGUABLY the greatest fighter of all time,pacquiao does not even make top fifty.Posted October 29, 2013 5:13 pm
A gigantic ” THANK YOU ” to Box Nation for bringing this most awaited fight of Manny Pacquiao against Rios. Boxing fans in the UK like me will be over the moon with excitement to watch these two warriors. Well done Box Nation & thank you once againPosted October 29, 2013 4:24 pm
HappyBoy, this is a lot tougher fight than you think. He’ a naturally bigger fighter that can punch. Yes he takes punishment, but he deals with it and has one of the biggest fighting heart in boxing. This makes a man dangerous no matter who it is. The problem is that he’s taking on arguably the greatest fighter of all time. Manny is excited and eager to get back into his home, which is the boxing ring. I do think this will be an exciting fight and probably break PPV records world wide. Manny Pacquiao is one of those cross over Mega Stars that never tarnishes.Posted October 29, 2013 4:17 pm
KO 4 PacmanPosted October 29, 2013 4:04 pm
The people and the fighters that are on the PPV. That is how a lot of their money gets made. That is who cares. Called economics.Posted October 29, 2013 3:57 pm
Hecdog – Rios is a smaller version of Margarito wtf do you expect to happen stop getting yourself worked up over a road kill. You acting like a real Pactard.Posted October 29, 2013 3:57 pm
who gives a fu#k about ppv.Posted October 29, 2013 3:41 pm
He is not waking anybody up. You do realize ever since his fight with Mosley, pretty much starting with Mosley his fights havent been selling that well. His PPV sells where dropping and so where his ratings. Heck the mexican fan base is what carried those last 2 fights against Pac. I bet his PPV sells are terrible. And that will show you that the world is not awaiting Pacs return.Posted October 29, 2013 3:39 pm
Manny is waking up the world with this fight. Like him or not, he is boxing’s most exciting prize fighter ever. I watched a few short clips of his training, and I’m scared for Brandon Rios. Manny is rejuvenated, excited and focused on the task at hand. His speed and power should be outlawed because it’ a bit unfair when opponents have to deal with his type of artillery. Brandon won’t see the punch that knocks him out. All of China and 95% of the world will be watching the return of someone special. The congressman, actor, singer, philanthropist, clothing designer is back. It’s hard to mention just one thing that Manny Pacquiao does well. I do a disservice to Manny by mentioning just a few things that he has success in. This is an icon that fans what to get a glimpse of. On the night of November 23, 2013, Manny will make his ring walk to the ring that will leave many people in awe. The granite chiseled body will come out ready for the most anticipated fight in history. The smile that graces Manny’s face each time he comes out will brighten the arena. He will weave the ring rope and throw flurries so that the boxing world will see with their own eyes that Manny Pacquiao is back to reclaim his world titles. This will be a night to remember. Let’s all prepare for this historic moment in our time. The triumphant return of Manny Pacquiao.Posted October 29, 2013 2:45 pm
GOOD. I’ll set this on record and get a good night’s sleep and watch it on Sunday afternoon, once I get back from the boxing gym!
I’ve no intention of staying up to watch this sacrificial lamb bleat his way to the slaughter!
Rios is going to get his head bashed in as PAC looks for revenge for RIOS ridiculing FREDDIE ROACH on his Parkinson’s when he was working out with MARGARITO helping him get ready for PAC.
MANNY has a very, very spiteful side and is not the meek and mild mannered person he portrays for the cameras. He will do his best to smash Rios’ teeth down his throat and if he gets the chance for a highlight reel KO he will take it. Don’t let him fool you, this one is personal, but I don’t feel Manny is at the level he was 3 years ago!
Rios is over rated IMHO!Posted October 29, 2013 2:26 pm
Ill bet this PPV doesn’t break a million buys. Probably close to 800 thousand or so.Posted October 29, 2013 1:29 pm
Thanks box NationPosted October 29, 2013 1:16 pm
