I’d rather listen to Joseph Herron call fights instead of that lame Lampley.

Sheriff Joe’s chicken

Adrien-Yep. It was a KO. Not pretty to watch but legal and the smart thing to do. Mayweather took advantage of Ortiz stupidity. I bet Pacquioa couldnt KO Rios even if he had the same chance in front of him.

Fighting a guys like rios coming of a ko loss and dominating him
Is a bigger deal then Fighting guys like Ortiz as a champion via sucker punch ..hahahahaha

Joseph Herron , you are absolutely correct sir. Sredmond has only rhetoric’s
I asked Him a question below and i proved that he will never answer but counter question me lol… I asked him a simple question ” why mayweather asked Canelo to drop to 152 p ” his reply was why PAC fought 3 times at catch weight … Lol and he knows well that I don’t like catch weights no matter who does it PAC or mayweather but sredmond won’t admit mayweather asked the fight to be at 152 because he wanted to take away on advantage Canelo had over mayweather which is power .

He says PAC is an atg yet he bash him non stop and brings up morales loss and two other losses in his earlier carriere,when PAC stopes opponent he says they are tailor made ,
Example he just said below that Mosley was coming of a win against margarito before mayweather fight but dosent mention the wonky wright losses or mayorga fight and PAC fought a different Mosley and brings up mora fight after he fought PAC but dosent mention the mayorga Mosley fight that Mosley was losing a fight from a slow washed up mayorga in score cards until the 12 round … As you see he is here to tell us that by beating rios PAC did nothing last night and says rios has no resume but he defends Ortiz resume who got ko’d by a 140 pound maydana before he fought mayweather …

Joseph Herron, I never said Manny had to stop Rios that’s Roach who has hurled 6 vain KO predictions… Point is that the perception of Manny needs to adjust to what’s actually happening, you don’t address the very controversial 3rd fight with Marquez, like most I thought he beat Bradley the he was stopped horribly… In his last 4 bouts he did NOT look good in two one of which he was concussed…

Tark, you gotta go argue with the TV Screen and Lewis right hands for graphically showing us what the inside of Vitalis face looked like.. You have inspired me to go take another look at the beating he put on Klits Face…Thanks Tarkey!! One right hand and Vitalis chance at being a Top 15 HW just died… Tough Break but utterly just and consistent with even and OLD Lennox being the Greater fighter…

Joseph Herron benchmarking Pacquiao vs his prior performances is part of boxing… Since when has Floyd Mayweather been billed as a big puncher? Mayweather and PAC have DIFFERENT styles reality is that Mayweather is easily the best technical boxer operating over this span of time whereas Manny was a fighter bent in destruction… Saying “if you line up a bunch of Rios and Margo clones PAC will look spectacular” means what?? He cannot fare too well against boxers?? Rios and Margo were battered by all their opponents win or lose and present NO technical challenges, hand or foot speed.. Both were tough and durable yet how does this dispel the notion that Manny has not looked as good? There are still some who swear that Pacs a threat to stop EVERYBODY but he has not closed out another fighter in years… Last bout he was in where there was a stoppage he was the guy hitting the deck…

TARK

Sredmond is a liar…

“Hard” right hands didn’t do ANYTHING to Vitali Klitschko’s face… Vitali is NOT a bleeder. NOBODY ever threatened to stop Vitali on cuts before or since his fight with Lewis—and Lewis never stopped anyone but Vitali on cuts… Lewis hit Mavrovic with many more right hand punches for 12 rounds and never nicked him.

Foul blows slashed Vitali’s face deeply in 3 places on his left eye and cheek.

A careful examination of the video record shows the initial nick on Vitali’s left eyelid came from a thumb strike from Lewis’s right glove…

The 3 deeper slashes that ripped Vitali’s face open were ripped opened when Lewis held Vitali in a headlock with his left arm—and hit VK with the edge and palm of his right glove. Not only was Lewis holding and hitting, but he was striking with an illegal surface of his glove.

Lewis is famous for foul blows.

When Robert Guerrero held and hit Andre Berto, Max Kellerman shouted, “Shades of Lennox Lewis.” to knowing laughs from the HBO crew. The referee for both the Lewis-Klitschko and Berto-Guerrero fights was none other than Lou Moret. Numerous fouls were committed in both fights and Moret refused to call any fouls at all, in either fight. If you know fouls will not be called, and points will not be deducted, you can foul with abandon.

If appropriate fouls were called and the Lewis-Klitschko fight went to the scorecards—Vitali Klitschko would have won because he was winning on ALL SCORECARDS when the fight was stopped.

Vitali was always ahead on points in ever fight of his entire professional boxing career. No other heavyweight champion has achieved that.

I think that the Marquez fight was an aberration as Marguez was pumped up on steroids and had ‘sudden’ new power. I’m glad that Manny took some time off to recover and came back strong. I don’t think that Manny should waste any more time fighting Marquez. He should take on Bradley and then Mayweather. Mayweather/Pacman is still THE FIGHT everyone wants to see, and I hope it happens. Pacman is the ONE GUY who could defeat Mayweather with his fast hands, unorthodoxed aggrestive style. Would be a great fight.

Posted November 24, 2013 9:44 pm 


Joseph Herron

Sredmond,

styles make fights. If you notice, Manny hasn’t had an overtly impressive performance since fighting Margarito in 2010.

He had a dominant performance against Mosley, but Manny thrives off of fighters who over commit and take more chances than fighters like Bradley, Marquez, and a tentative version of Shane Mosley.

Rumors of his decline is greatly exaggerated and unmerited.

Put a fighter in front of him like Brandon Rios or Miguel Cotto and you will see a dominant Manny Pacquiao every single time.

Think about how unfair you’re being by bringing up the fact that Manny doesn’t finish his opponents at 147 any longer. It’s completely relative.

What would your response be if Manny had the same shutout, but safety first, performance over Robert guerrero that Floyd had back in May?

You would be drilling him for not stopping Guerrero, just like you are today.

Brandon has never hit the canvas as an amateur or a professional. Expecting Manny to stop him is a little ridiculous.

He’s prizefighter, not Paul Bunyan!!

Adrian, Lewis beat Klitschko in REAL life there was nothing special to Vitalis performance, he had a PALTRY lead took too many HARD right hands the turned his face into “Ground Zero” and he was rightfully pulled from wreckage… Klit fans are still bleating about the loss because they never factored in to Vitalis legacy, the hard truth that Sam Peter is the best guy he ACTUALLY defeated (UGGGHHHHHH) Klits has only 2 losses but his fans still cannot sleep they lay awake tossing and turning in hopes that Time Travel will be invented before their miserable lives end and they can somehow alter Lewis beating their Man… HAHAHAHAHA!!

Good evening. Well said Joseph. Very well said. I think Sredmond may have a point in regards to Golovkin. I am impressed with whatI see up to now but I would like to see an upgrade in terms of opposition. Cheers.

Adrian, Pacquiaos an ATG but, fact is Marquez cracked his skull… And that was the 3rd time PAC Man was stopped…FACTS!! You must accept that this happened and move on with your life… Calzaghe did NOT impress against BHop he was down, and won a ragged bout

Posted November 24, 2013 8:00 pm 


SREDMOND

Joseph Herron, I agree that Mannys a GREAT ATG fighter, that said the perception is that he is not as effective as he used to be and that has merit… He used to be a finisher and now that’s OLD news, MANY think Marquez beat him in the 3rd bout I say it was a toss up, no issue with the result…He was put down and laid out by a 39 year old Marquez and his future rightfully questioned… Be it rhetoric or not even Mannys said he’s “trying to be like before” it’s not crazy for people to question how close to the Top Manny belongs, Rios was tailor made, a ton of miles on him, coming off a loss… PAC did his job but for me the jury’s still out…

Posted November 24, 2013 7:56 pm 


SREDMOND

Adrian, PAC Man gets LITTLE credit for beating Mosley who had NOT won in 2 fights… Floyd took him when he still had the respect of the boxing public beating Margarito, he was ranked and confident… Floyd boxed him into submission, he then had a draw against Mora where he did NOT look good then Manny got the leftover… Shane them lost to Canelo basically Mosley went in a 4 fight streak with NO wins and who started that SLIDE???? Floyd Mayweather Jr the Undefeated, Consensus best fighter in the World…Adrian I know my consistent abuse of you has taken it’s toll but sadly it’s gonna Continue!!! Make peace with the hammer I’m gonna keep slamming into your melon..

Golovkin IS overhyped at this point, his resume is MOSTLY trash and the notion that everyone in boxing is scared of his does not fly…
The guys got ALOT to prove in order to live up to that hype and Stevens, Ishida, Ouma, and Rosado are NOT gonna do the trick…Canelo
Was the man at 154 when Floyd faced him, Golovkins
NOT top man in his division… Facts

Adrian, trouncing you is fun as it pertains to Wlad he’s the BEST Hw fighter during a horribly weak era what do you want me to say??! As for Canelo when guys tried to act like he accomplished more than Mayweather I had to smash that reality, he’s a very Good Young Fighter and Champ, he was in the ring with one of histories BEST, too BAD for him LOL… Who was Floyd supposed to face at 154, the guy with All the belts who was Undefeated OR Brandon Rios coming off a loss?? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Posted November 24, 2013 7:35 pm 


SREDMOND

Adrian, you FULLY SUPPORT Pacquaio engaging in 3 catchweight fights and seeking a 4th with Cotto who rejected the offer… Yet you are REALLY pissed about Floyd facing Alvarez at a catchweight ….???? How do you explain this contradiction? I had no issue with the results of those fights and I’m not a fan of excuses… Sooooooooo what’s you stance in “Catchweights” because of you have an issue them it’s has to LOGICALLY BE far more intense with Manny Pacquiao who employed the practice of bringing guys down 3x ….. I’m waiting for a response to that contradiction .. Alvarez was PRIME, VERY HEAVY and facing a soon to be 37 year old May and what happened?? The Unbeaten P4P King wins again vs a fighter Plenty better than Brandon “I just lost Rios”

Posted November 24, 2013 7:31 pm 


123=VI

A seasoned 147 Bradley LOOKED WORST and won than 135 pounds Rios who only had two fights at 140 pounds against Alvarado, I say a rematch against Rios and Rios wins it. a fifth fight with Marquez and Marquez will killed him or put him in a coma this time….a fight with Floyd who handle a solid 172 pounds Canelo like an easy walk in the park would be laughable against Pacquiao.

Let me prove it to everyone who reads these post that you never answer when you don’t like the question .

Sredmond “Adrian, Pacquaio thru the first 3 bouts lost more rounds than PAC when you strip out the KD’s and go round by round”

Sredmond – hahAhahahahaha …..

To call you a boxing fan is a “sin ” dude read how manny times you say the same thing you like to say but not answer any question … When someone ask you about some opinion that you don’t like to talk about you go and ask a Counter question with answering the question first …. You are a Brocken record bro …

I can always predict what you will say for any fighter after he fight , win or lose because it easy to predict your thoughts , which are always biased .like

1.How wlad beat no one good until now ..hahhaha
2. Mitchel is a future of haveyweight devision ..hahahahaha
3.ggg is a hype job
4. Before the fight was announced ( Canelo vs may) you were saying Canelo a hype job and really beat no one good and is to big for mayweather but after mayweather won a fake 152p fight he started saying how mayweather beat the top fighter Canelo ..hahahahaha
5.pac beat an old Mosley and couldn’t knock him out as if mayweather fought Mosley in his prime …hahahahaha
6.when mayweather moved to ww he fought the best champion out there ” baldomir” hahahahAga as if undefited Williams , undefited cotto weren’t champions at that weight hahahahaha….
7. PAC beat mayweather leftover ,hatton hahahahahaha
8. Morales beat PAC but dosent mention that PAC finished morales carrier in next to fights they had .
9. Calzaghe really was not that good he fought no one ” bearly won against Hopkins ” who is still btw nr. 1 lighthw. Hahahahaha
10. Lewis beat klitchko in paper thats what’s important about that ..hahahahaha

Ok tell us again how Marquez ko’d PAC and how no matter how successful PAC becomes in the future he still sucks because he got ko’d once… Hahahahaha
Did I mention he said Mitchell is a future of hw devision ??? Hahahahahahahaha

Manny Pacquiao will beat Floyd Mayweather hands down. He has the speed, reflexes, athleticism and the unique unorthodox style to handle him fairly easy. You must remember that Manny hadn’t fought in a year. He had a game plan for Rios that he followed to a T. Mayweather is nothing but a counter puncher that moves well and uses the jab well. He wins on his speed and reflexes. Manny will off set all of this with his feints, speed, and power. Manny is only going to get better if and before these two guys fight. Trust me on this, Manny Pacquiao has the tools and the style to beat Mayweather. Judah did it for 5 rounds, Cotto had the right style, but was a little too old to hang. Manny Pacquiao is the best athlete boxer of all time. Mark my word right now, Manny Pacquiao will defeat Floyd Mayweather should Floyd find the courage to fight him, which I don’t think he will after watching the masterful display on a younger, stronger fighter. Manny Pacquiao haters must give Manny Pacquiao his just due and crown him as the best boxer of today. The more you doubt him, the more you will be upset. Manny Pacquiao has no boundaries. A 9th division title is just around the corner. What an incredible display of boxing last night. I’m still in awe. Manny’s the best

Posted November 24, 2013 4:03 pm 


SREDMOND

Beating Brandon Rios still leaves the impression that PAC beat a relative soft touch who has no resume at 147 and was last seen losing and taking a ton of headshots at 140, this is similar to Cottp getting back on track against Delvin Rodriguez, it makes you feel good to see a Great fighter look good in the ring, but alas it was Delvin Rodriguez NOT a real player at 154, same goes for Rios at 147…: good win for PAC but the jury’s still out as to his upside going forward against the the better WW’s and Floyd Mayweather is simply a booked loss if the bout SOMEHOW gets made… PAC Man said Rios hurt him, and Brandon could not be slower

Posted November 24, 2013 3:56 pm 


SREDMOND

Adrian, it’s just matter of record that PAC Man lost more rounds than Marquez during their first couple of encounters, a HUGE percentage of the public thought JMM won the 3rd bout and the 4th bout provided us with the ONLY clear victory either man enjoyed during the series and DAMMMMMMNNNNNNNNNNN Was it clear!!!! They must have shown Pacquaio motionless on that canvas 5000 times… But of course you probably think it was a GREAT outing for Manny?? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

True enough Joseph. Money and how much is the BOTTOM line in this noble sport. Perhaps im just old school when it comes to a fighter settling accounts with a difficult rival before moving on to other mountains to climb. However beating Bradley impressively would in.my view add more to the buildup in dollars and sense for a potential bout with Junior. Honestly im looking foreard Joe to your interview with Roy Jones. This should be interesting. Keep up the good work soldier. Cheers.

Manny Pacquiao showed cased his brilliant boxing ability last night. The world witnessed the greatest boxing exhibition ever put on display in the squared circle. Manny Pacquiao is alive and well. His mastery of boxing and ring generalship kept us all watching in awe. Manny Pacquiao proved to the boxing world that he is unquestionably the number 1 or number 2 greatest boxers of all time. Macau China was treated to the most technical, masterful commanding fight that any fighter has ever put together. On this night Manny Pacquiao was better than Sugar ray Robinson, Roberto Duran, Sugar ray Leonard, Joe Louis, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jack Johnson and any other fighter that you can think of. Greatness clearly came to all fight fans. The roaring crowd supporting Manny was touching. The commentary was excellent. Let’s forget the Mayweather talk. He has no chance of ever beating the the living legend. Mikey Garcia decided to run his big mouth and had the audacity to say he would stop Manny Pacquaio. Someone please make that fight so we can shut his mouth also. Today is a day to celebrate. Manny Pacquiao carried the world on his shoulders and would not be denied a glorious victory. The speed, power, athleticism, movement, defense and ring smarts lead me and others to classify Manny Pacquiao as one of a kind. He will never be duplicated. He took on the doubters and dissected a vicious unwavering opponent. Lets all celebrate or king, Manny Pacquiao. Please give to those that need help[ care down in life. Give to those that need hope as Manny Pacquiao gave to us. Thank You Manny Pacquiao for giving us back our hope and making us smile. Manny is the best!

Adrian, Pacquaio thru the first 3 bouts lost more rounds than PAC when you strip out the KD’s and go round by round..Why do you think that Marque and PAC Man needed 4 bouts? It’s because Manny was always in an objectionable position the 3rd bout was HIGHLY controversial and well we know what happened in the 4th he was destroyed plain and simple his wife wanted him to retire and people were not sure he could rebound and where he really stands in the sport is still questionable because Brandon Rios was a tailor made opponent coming off a loss that has the boxing IQ of a heavy bag…

Spartacus,

There’s only one thing Pac and Floyd have to consider when making a fight…the money.

If the demand is there, the money is right, and both fighters are willing, then a fight will be made.

Rankings and resumes have very little interest to the promoters and fighters.

Money, money, and…oh yeah, money is all a fighter gives a dam about when competing in the ring.

Posted November 24, 2013 3:17 pm 


It’s Me, Ernie

As I said previously, this fight was all about Manny’s state of condition, mentally and physically. Rios was Rios except for the fact that he was too heavy and sluggish to compete at that level. The kid has been slurring his words for quite a while now and last night’s pounding may have been the end for him. Even if he quits now, he most likely will end up like the great Bobby Chacon, except even younger. It’s a shame that his “people” let him take an excessive beating, yet should be grateful for Manny’s compassion towards the latter part of the bout…

SREDMOND

Adrian, so you value Floyd Senior above all others is that what you are saying? My point is the scale does NOT lie Mayweather fought at JR MW at 150 and Manny did the same at WW These are just facts… That said Floyd’s a little taller with a 5 inch reach advantage on Manny which would further compound Pacs agony trying to get to the fast FMJ… Again this would not be a punching bag like Rios who is borderline immobile LMAO..!

Posted November 24, 2013 1:44 pm 


SREDMOND

Adrian, Pacquiao is simply a FARRRRR more flawed boxer than Mayweather and the odds would CLEARLY reflect that… Mannys a GREAT fighter but his Boxing IQ is not on par with Floyd’s… We can go back and forth and my opinion would NEVER change on the matter, Mayweather does not lose to Morales or Marquez he does not take undue punishment from guys he’s better than… He gets a bloody nose against a Hall of Famer and you wanna make Cotto the next Jesus Christ, meanwhile PAC gets waxed and loses most of the rounds historically to Marquez and you wanna pretend it didn’t happen… HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Lol ….if mayweather and PAC are the same size then why all that complain from floyed senior about how is impossible to start as 115 pound fighter and was knocking guys out who are much bigger then him , then what’s the reason for not suspecting for mayweather if they arethr sand size ??? Listen PAC is much smaller then PAC in every way you look at it!

Posted November 24, 2013 1:37 pm 


SREDMOND

Adrian, you simply cannot do it and I understand your pain, Manny was humiliated so it makes you feel better to sell Marquez as having landed some wild Haymaker when the truth is he took a step back and even while hurt perfectly times Mannys bull rush and turned his lights out…. Marquez did NOT need to be dominating Manny to win, he put him down, in the 3rd then ended him with a BEAUT of a right hand in the 6th… Pacquaio to his credit has made FAR fewer excuses than you about his brutal KO loss that’s NOT getting forgotten ie Paul Williams, Herrol Graham and Roberto Duran…

Posted November 24, 2013 1:36 pm 


SREDMOND

It’s funny how guys will bill PAC as a small WW (which he is) hitting the ring at 150 yet bill Mayweather as a solid Jr MW when he hits the ring at the same weight fight night 150… Both men at small WW’s by today’s standards undergoing very little rehydration… The idea that either of these guys belong in the ring with MW’s is just bogus…

Posted November 24, 2013 1:31 pm 


Adrian

Sredmond – you are full of rhetoric’s and that’s all you do here all the time .

Who said Marquez dosent deserve a praise for his ko over PAC????
Lucky punch or not it wS PAC’s mistake and Marquezes good counter punching skill that got PAC ko’d , no one can deny that but you can’t also deny the fact that just because Marquez won via knockout is automatically better then PAC and he would always ko him….

PAC fought last night and he won ….

You can’t pick and chose arguments whenever it suites you pal . Boxing is not that simple

And styles make fights always , just because mayweather beat Marquez and PAC always struggled against him it dosent mean that mayweather beats PAC , that’s why we have fights to test them … Mayweather beat Marquez because mayweather is a counter puncher himself and Marquez couldn’t do chit trying to attack mayweather …

You could say mayweather is also a counterpuncher so why couldn’t he do the same thing even better then Marquez to PAC , My answer is that ,if you attack Marquez he throws a combination right after he gets attacked and can take a punch and that way manages to hit PAC too ,I can guarantee you that mayweather wouldn’t counterpunch with a combination against PAC especially in the ropes like Marquez does … So that’s the fight mayweather have to show me he can handle a speedy flurry of a southpaw like PAC is!

Spartacus, that was actually a measured comment, PAC Man got himself back in the win column and handled the job as expected for the most part… World Title fight against a streaking opponent it was not, solid rehab performance of the variety the Great Roy Jones failed to execute after his slaughter at the hands of Tarver…

Top of the day gentlemen. Seems Pacquiao just can’t win a break here with some folks. I guess he is ready for the old folks home?Time to write his obituary? Talk of back handed compliments, a new precedent seems to be taking place here. Poor Pacquiao just doesn’t win here. I won’t bring up Junior because he didn’t fight last night. Pacquiao did. He won. Period. Rios? A measuring stick to see where the little warrior stood and as I and others suspected he still can utilize his balamce,reflexes,legs and strikes very effectively. Rios a world beater? No. Tough? Yes. Kudos to you Manny. Ypu

Posted November 24, 2013 12:21 pm 


SREDMOND

Not beating guys by stoppage does not mean Mannys “weak” but it should give a more real perspective on how he’s gonna win his bouts.. Reality is that PAC Man has to do the full 12 most nights, Floyd Mayweather has done this for years and his unreal defense creates a scenario where he absorbs little punishment, PAC on the other hand has a tendency to dial up the mileage as it pertains to punishment.. He did well against the SUPER slow Rios and in this bout it seems he accepted that he’s not the force he was in the lower weights, he hits hard enough to keep guys honest and aware but now PAC Man needs to win rounds as opposed to closing things out…

Posted November 24, 2013 11:48 am 


SREDMOND

Pacs NOT a real puncher at 147 and the stats CLEARLY BEAR that out and The fact is that against Marquez Pacquiao was DOWN 2x “he was winning” it was the 6th round with a lot of road to go, and PAC could NOT finish Marquez, be some slight version of a man and give Marquez credit for spotting the opening and driving a CLEAN straight shot into his head…We all love the “Warrior Mentality” well then you gotta admire Marquez for being hurt yet still getting the job done… Is this new? Manny has hurt Marquez before ONLY to see him recuperate and bounce right hands off his head..Marquez is a TOUGH, hard Mexican and he will always be respected for finally catching Manny and breaking him…

sredmond -oh please , both of them slowing down but the loss he got against Marquez got cought by a monstrous punch and that’s it he lost the fight he was winning the fight though and was on the way of stoping him so it’s not like was beaten and dominated by Marquez and just because PAC is not stoping opponents it dosent make him weak!!! Mayweather hurt Marquez and if he had balls dh could have stoped him easy in the twelve round but he just didn’t want to go there and plays it safe wich I have nothing against that but don’t give me that “PAC can’t ko anymore bs argument “because you know very well in boxing especially as a welterweight to win all the fights by a ko is almost impossible especially if you are small like PAC and fight against the elite !

HaHaHa Mayweather beat Cotto on ALL cards whereas Pacquiao was KNOCKED cold at 147 by Marquez who NEVER beat another 147 pounder in his LIFE… Mayweather is still slippery, not hitting the deck and winning unanimously Mannys reputation as a KO artist is a thing of the past and we saw him down 2x and OUT just ONE short fight ago…Mayweathers in another tier than Manny and it’s pretty obvious that said I seriously doubt you will EVER give FMJ credit now matter what… But the planet does, that’s why he’s tops in the World… “Bloody nose from Cotto vs being motionless on the canvas” that’s a foolish comparison…

PAC lost some aura of invinciblity just as mayweather lost some when he fought cotto we saw that , because they are both getting older but a fight between them is still a dream fight , that’s all I wAnt.

Adrian

Ok sredmond – case resolved then since you also like to see a fight between mayweather and PAC …. I ask nothing more , win or lose mayweather will earn a credit from me just got fighting PAC alone , it’s all fine if you think mayweather can beat PAC but it has to be proven in the ring … That’s all I want. !!!!

SREDMOND

Adrian, when did I say “PAC was shot” ????? Only questions were how would he look after getting hit like that and how would he respond to punches…?? He got past Rios nicely and predictably do I think he’s the best at WW or unbeatable??? No I didn’t see that, Mannys fast and can be sharp but alas his aura of invincibility is gone and it’s not coming back..He is NOT Floyd’s equal nor does he have the winners mindset that FMJ does… Manny discusses “Losing” a lot now, against Rios he’s is not facing a guy with much craft against a Mayweather he would be facing a guy who wrote the book…

Posted November 24, 2013 8:46 am 


SREDMOND

Adrian, I’m a PAC Man fan happy to see him win that said Rios was a big underdog and a handpick end opponent chosen because he’s more brawn than brains AND he’s painfully slow…PAC Man did his job, KUDOS that said the only reason the bout had any mystery is because people wondered if PAC could comeback after and OLD Marquez laid him out… In 2010 Rios would have been a garbage opponent for Manny but now we have a more measured view of PAC Man, he’s NOT a KO artist at 147 his bouts go a full 12 rounds and he’s had some BAD outings against Marquez who finally lit him up like an Xmas tree…

Posted November 24, 2013 8:40 am 


SREDMOND

I hope somehow TR and GBP can make this now stale dated bout it’s not like Manny had a real chance of winning but it’s a lingering conversation that needs to die…
Pacquiao is a Great fighter but he’s got no chance of out boxing Mayweather, the tactics that work against a lead footed SLOW Rios who cannot spell “defense” even with autocorrect would be useless against the P4P King…Kellerman had it right, Pacs finisher mentality is GONE he’s simply NOT a KO threat at 147, I was pulling for him to step on it and end Rios but he does not have the power to get the job done above 140… A boxing match between he and Mayweather plays right into Floyd’s hands personally it would be cool if the bout could be made but adults already know the obstacles…

Posted November 24, 2013 8:34 am

Sredmond – I am sorry your nightmare PAC will still be around and possibly get a fight with your hero mayweather and humiliate you ….hahahahahaha

I am not comparing rios with Canelo or anyone else dude . But I am loving when I see haters like you going after PAC win last night like he beat just another bum when MOST boxing experts and current and past hof predicted a tough night for PAC … Like Forman predicted it will be a close controversial win for PAC or sugar ray predicted a ko win for rios … So proving them wrong in such a one way beat down is a huge success …
You said PAC was shot. ??? Beating Bradley but getting robed who it turns out can beat Marquez dosent make him shot !

Posted November 24, 2013 8:32 am 


SREDMOND

How did Garcia “get outboxed by Khan” he laid him out in what the 4th round? He put Judah down and won a good scrap..EVERYONE knows Rios was gifted against Abril, and just lost to Mike Alvarado… FACT is that Garcia beat the guy CONSIDERED MOST dangerous at 140 “Matthysee” see NO fighter is good enough for you guys against the Unbeaten NEVER knocked COLD Floyd Mayweather but a punching bag like Rios coming off a loss is awesome for Pacquaio ????? I wonder how much praise Floyd would get for predictably out out boxing a fighter like Rios coming off a loss?? Not much…. But then again Floyd’s bit regs point after a 39 year old who never got a win at 147 drove his face into the canvas…LMAO!!

Posted November 24, 2013 8:29 am 


SREDMOND

Adrian, why did Manny ask Cotto to drop 2 pounds, Margo to drop 4 pounds and Oscar to drop 7 ?????? Canelo dropped 1.5 weigh in to weigh in fighters use these lame excuses EVERTIME they lose…. I see you defending Mannys multiple CW Fights but attempting to discredit Mayweather when facing and unusually large 154 pounder… Mayweather never even hits the limit the night of the bout for his 154 pound fights..At the end if the day Floyd became Lineal Champ vs Canelo…. Manny jus fought a rehab bout against a well matched opponent coming off a LOSS…. It’s sad to see you display so little confidence in PAC Mans future… “Rios” was his Delvin Rodriguez….

Posted November 24, 2013 8:22 am 


Adrian

Whooooo ??? Garcia ??? Hahahahaha is the sand Garcia who got outboxed by a chinless khan??? Or who almost lost to Judah ???

Let’s see PAC fight Garcia and see what happen ….or mark my words if Garcia is still around as a champion when Thurman gets a title and if they fight you will see how good is Garcia. …. Forget about Garcia facing mayweather

Mayweather should man up and face the warrior
PAC !!!!

Posted November 24, 2013 8:20 am 


SREDMOND

Adrian, I have always considered Cotto, PAC Mans best win at WW AND defended the result.. We ALL know Canelo was NOT “drained” he had NOT even tried that WEAK now overused excuse for him being outboxed… Fact is there is no comparison between Floyd winning the Ring Championship from the BEST guy at 154 and Pacquiao beating up Rios who has 000000000 reputation at 147 coming off a loss… PAC Mans NOT a Champ because of this bout and NOT a single fighter in the World would have been because Rios is a punching bag who had NOT a single win at 147…. But if you wanna pretend by all means do so!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Posted November 24, 2013 8:16 am 


Adrian

Yeah if you ask sredmond he will tell you the reason mayweather asked Canelo to drop two more pounds is just because mayweather like the number ” 152″ nothing else it’s his lucky number lol and for no other reason …lol
Sredmond tell us why mayweather made asked Canelo to drop two more pounds???

Posted November 24, 2013 8:15 am 


Whocares

Hmmm, I wonder what the historical value Mayweather’s fights against Guerrero and Ortiz had… Both had been beaten before or quit. Yes, Rios came with a loss into this fight, it was a close and competitive loss to Alvarado. Winning and losing are part of any sport. One win or loss does not determine greatness, it depends on what follows and how one handles a loss. Pacquiao is a risk taker, he did take a risk after his loss against Bradley, too much risk as it turns out, against a muscle up’d, slower but more powerful Marquez. Being knocked out does not diminish greatness. Pac came back in impressive fashion.

Posted November 24, 2013 8:13 am

Adrian, if you are SOOOO pumped about Manny beating Rios (coming off a loss) then you MUST be elated at the idea of Garcia facing Mayweather RIGHT!!! (Double standard will now be sold by the SPINELESS Adrian) Garcia has NEVER lost and he’s the Ring Champ at 140, having defeated Matthysee, Khan and Judah at the weight…. CLEARLY since you are so over the top about Rios who was NEVER “The Man” at 140 you gotta be psyched about Mayweather and a possible Garcia bout???

Posted November 24, 2013 8:11 am 


Adrian

Sredmond — gtfo!!! Mayweather didn’t fight Canelo at 154 But drained him to 152 !!! Why???? Why drain a boxer who btw had trouble reaching 154 let along dropping two more pounds … That way mayweather would beat klitchko too if he ask klitchko to drop at 154 and fight a corpse … Do not mention Canelo win to me just as I don’t give PAC credit for beating cotto at 145 same chit for me !!!

I responded to your post that you made escuses for rios saying ” he never fought at 147 before bs” !!!

Who Cares, Canelo did NOT appear “Weight Drained” in the ring that’s a TIRED excuse he was a young man with 15 pounds and 13 years who got OUTBOXED… I guess you give Manny NO credit for Oscar, Margarito and Cotto??? Canelo was healthy as a horse when Mayweather outboxed him nowadays EVERY fighter is “drained” and it’s usually the LOSER SELLING THAT WEAK story…

SREDMOND

Tark, you can try and substitute your imagination for FACTS, which is typical of you but reality is that PAC vs Rios had NOTHING of historical importance directly tied to the bout…The way you guys are trying to oversell Brandon Rios coming off a loss as a Marquis win for PAC Man tells me that you question Mannys true quality at this point…An opponent like this would NEVER be accepted for Floyd Mayweather even with FMJ being 2 years older… It’s was a solid comeback fight and that’s IT…. Mannys NOT a World Champion at this point and the notion that this means Floyd and Manny will face eachother next is a joke, we all know that bouts not happening next May and one fight has nothing to do with the other, the nice part is that we saw PAC Man with his hand raised instead of that video of him getting laid out by Marquez 15x…

Posted November 24, 2013 8:03 am

@ Sredmond, Floyd* had Canelo come down to 152lbs, he appeared weight drained and relatively weak. FLoyd* looked stronger. So stop the nonsense; weight alone does NOT determine size. Canelo did not outsize Mayweather* in this fight!

Posted November 24, 2013 8:03 am 


SREDMOND

Adrian, I’m a PAC Man fan and I’m glad he got a win under his belt but since when are you doling out credit for guys facing a bigger man? Canelo was a FULL 15 pounds heavier than FMJ who never hit the limit of 154 even after rehydrating and you scoffed at The win like it was nothing..Manny beats Rios coming off a loss in a Non-Title fight and this seems like Leonard vs Hearns? or Ali vs Frazier?? GTFOH, this was a NON Title Bout between two guys badly needing a win, had Manny lost he would have been written off.. Beyond that it was a REHAB bout, just like Cotto beating Delvin Rodriguez to get back in the “W” column…

Beating a fmr .

Those who try to call” rios a punching bag ” are haters because they know well rios is tough young and punches hard but they are right rios was a punching bag against PAC because he couldn’t even hurt PAC and only got hit ….

Sredmond.., “But fact is that Rios is a KNOWN punching bag.”

A punching bag with a 31-1-1 record — and a former world champion, with an iron chin, who had size and age advantages on Pacquiao… Guerrero was almost as big a punching bag as Rios — and Floyd was only a 7:1 favorite to beat him…

That fight was assured to have the same result as this one, but Guerrero actually won 3 rounds on all cards.

Now it’s time for Floyd to face an ATG fighter at long last — PACQUIAO!!!

Boxers in the future can look at this fight and see how not to perform beauty was not present at the side of the ring with all his wealth he has a very ugly wife . This was Pizza with out the anchovies a Mona Lisa with out a moe . Manny Pacquiao put on a brilliant, dominating display of precision ballet boxing. His movement was poetic and gracefulness He made the brutal sport of boxing look autistic as he masterfully dissected his round by round. Sugar Ray Robinson, and Willie Pep were laughing LOAD and HARD at his performance The world finally had the opportunity to see the most anticipated boxing come back fight in history without ped use . No one knew what to expect, some wanted Manny Pacquiao to use peds and then retire, and many had the confidence that Manny could use peds and comeback from his devastating loss. The country of the Philippines needed to get their hope back. They needed to know that there child, Manny Pacquiao could carry them all on his shoulders once more. Manny did more than thatand now he wants you all to get off of him . Through his spectacular boxing and cake making with the use of peds Manny Pacquiao brought lunches and snacks . He shook the hands of those who had offered moneys in return for public acknowledgement and this dishonored his camp and his father who supplys him with peds . He showed his nutsack to the millions and millions of people that watched this fight. Thank you Manny Pacquiao for showing all of us what a a hairy nutsack looks like and is all about.

He going to get koed, but no we said he will box rio. And they said PAC can’t box? Guess what ? We were right PAC has returned to box a slugger, it’s is in boxing that he can win fight Floyd switching between the two.

Remember Ali. Vs norton? Norton the slugger was told Ali hold his left hand down , he was to block the jab with his left and bool the left, he did this all night and broke Ali jaw.
Floyd is open for a hook after his right hand lead and he crossed and hold as he alway do..
Step back a d hook left or right will do.

This was a REHAB bout, when Manny was on top, Rios coming off a loss would not even be a suitable opponent… It was a wise choice given the fact he was coming off getting damn near killed in the ring… But fact is that Rios is a KNOWN punching bag, who was too slow to really trouble even a good version of Pacquaio… Do you want us to pretend this was Great opposition ???

Hidalgo

Yo mama, Marquez won’t fight Manny again no matter what. No matter what the scorecards said, Juan has lost three of four fights to Manny. He won’t do anything to risk the glow of his KO win over Pacquiao.

But I tell you what, Marquez would do no better and would have done the same thing to Rios and he wouldn’t have been able to knock him out either. Neither would you know who.

Pacquiao didn’t just beat Rios, he totally overwhelmed and dominated him. He did what he had to do to prove that he was still a great fighter and he did that.

As for “coming off a loss” or it not being a championship fight, so fuggin’ what. What has Floyd Mayweather Jr. said many times in recent years? Titles don’t matter. There’s too many of them anyways. Besides that, this fight wasn’t about belts and championships. It was about redemption and Pacquiao redeemed himself in glorious style.

There’s not a damn thing or person in the world that can tarnish Manny Pacquiao’s star tonight. No matter how hard they try.

And by God, I’m enjoying watching all the Rios believers–even the ones who won’t admit they were rooting for Rios–eat the stinkiest nastiest crow they have ever had in their lives.

The Fight was for a domestic level title. Thats even LESSER than Ward World Championship title Fight. Rios’ s SKILLS are VERY POOR. Thats why he’s a #0 P4P NON CHAMP. Floyd would have stopped Rios.

Marquez beats manny luck punch, Bradley out box Marquez easily, manny out box bradley but loses because They also count the many times Bradley tap manny on the side about 7 times as they hold each other about 10 times. So is manny better that Bradley, Bradley not waiting a rematch say it all. Manny better.
So it’s just Floyd and manny now, no cotton why? No Russian, easy win, no Bradley more so not now, can we sat Floyd now? Arum said next year, and manny tonight say I miss Los vagas and want my next fight in vagas.

It’s just not the same, it didn’t carry sooooo KO predictions have been fruitless for what? 6 bouts in a row Rios,Marquez, Bradley, Marquez, Mosley, Clottey, and Margo all saw the bell… These are just facts he’s still a great fighter… Man up kids!

Manny Pacquiao put on a brilliant, dominating display of precision boxing. His movement was poetic and graceful. He made the brutal sport of boxing look artistic as he masterfully dissected his opponent round by round. Sugar Ray Robinson, and Willie Pep would have been proud. The world finally had the opportunity to see the most anticipated boxing come back fight in history. No one knew what to expect, some wanted Manny Pacquiao to retire, and many had the confidence that Manny could comeback from his devastating loss. The country of the Philippines needed to get their hope back. They needed to know that there child, Manny Pacquiao could carry them all on his shoulders and bring them a victory. Manny did more than that. Through his spectacular boxing performance, Manny Pacquiao brought people together. He shook the hands of those that dishonored his camp and his father like trainer. He showed true class and forgiveness to the millions and millions of people that watched this fight. Thank you Manny Pacquiao for showing all of us what a true professional athlete is all about.

Hidalgo, Pacs had a stellar career, that said Rios was out in there to make him look good an Manny did his job… As it pertains to “class” it would be interesting to see how PAC does against some of the established WW’s as opposed to Rios who just lost at 140 and stepped up for the first time to 147.. Happy PAC Man did his job, but whether he’s at the top of the food chain cannot be gleaned from beating Brandon Rios in my book… Gain control of your emotions it’s weak when you begin whimpering and begging me to see it your way… HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Brandon Rios was either going to be the perfect opponent for Manny Pacquiao or the worst imaginable one. It was obvious right away which it would be. Pacquiao, utilizing his fast feet and even faster hands, pitched a shutout in Macau, China, a big first step on the road back to relevance.

Rios, all the experts agreed, was there to be hit. It was a weakness he had turned into a strength of sorts, wading through hell and back, eating punch after punch, for the pleasure of throwing his own. But it was a weakness nonetheless.

Tops among Paquiao’s myriad talents as a boxer has always been his hand speed. He throws punches with reckless abandon, using his incredible footwork and unorthodox angles to confuse opponents before landing power punches. The question was would they have enough on them to stop Rios in his plodding tracks? Did Rios stand the slightest chance against one of the best fighters of his generation?

The answers, quite clearly, were “yes” and “no” respectively. Pacquiao blistered Rios with rights and lefts, punches coming from every imaginable angle and in every conceivable combination.

Of course, Pacquiao was supposed to beat Rios silly. Rios, a limited boxer but a legitimate tough guy, was never going to beat Manny Pacquiao. He’s a fighter who, within a couple of years, will be main-eventing bouts on ESPN 2. It was a solid win, but, ultimately, a forgettable one.

So, does beating the likes of Rios mean Manny is back? Does he matter again?

“I feel that,” Pacquiao said simply, telling HBO announcer Max Kellerman he wasn’t sure what was next, leaving it in the hands of his promoter Bob Arum.

Pacquiao has reason to be confident. He certainly looked like he was a fighter who mattered, landing power punches over and over again over 12 rounds. If he’s lost a step it’s only just.

His demise, perhaps, was largely fictional in the first place. Yes, he lost by brutal knockout to Juan Manuel Marquez. Before that, however, he actually beat Timothy Bradley in the eyes of everyone in the world but two of the ringside judges.

He looked like the same fighter against Rios, the same fighter who, over the last decade, has marched through the boxing world, one weight class at a time, collecting title belts, glory and scalps in equal measure. At each stop it was thought Pacquiao might finally meet his match, that the under-sized Filipino might finally have bitten of more than he could chew. A persistent boxing maxim, after all, had survived the test of time—a good big man beats a good little man every time.

Pacquiao didn’t just prove the conventional wisdom wrong. He made it seem downright foolish, becoming an unlikely superstar in the process.

Pacquiao returned to form after Marquez knockout

And, at 34, he’s still doing it—and presumably will be for some time. The young fighters who might challenge him like Keith Thurman, Kell Brook and Adrien Broner are safely in the Golden Boy and Showtime camp, as is Floyd Mayweather Jr., Pacquiao’s personal white whale.

Among the fighters he might actually step into the ring with, there’s no reason he can’t run the table. Short of another batch of certifiable judges, he should beat Bradley again in a rematch. He’s beaten Marquez before too. The other likely opponents on Arum’s radar, fighters like Ruslan Provodnikov, Mike Alvarado and Miguel Cotto, don’t have the speed to keep up with him.

That means, competitively and commercially, Pacquiao is in a good position to remain relevant for a couple more years minimum. He’s still among the biggest stars in boxing, in part because Pacquiao has become much more than a mere fighter.
Does Pacquiao still matter?
Yes. No. Only if Arum and Floyd can work together to make that fight happen. Submit Vote vote to see results

Pacquiao is a worldwide icon, a star who transcends nationality, able to attract a following in China as easily as he can in the United States. And, in his native homeland in the Philippines, he’s something even more. Pacquiao is not just a rags to riches story—he’s a bonafide superhero, more myth than man.

Barring a handful of Marquez style knockouts, Pacquiao should continue to attract a crowd, both to arenas and on pay-per-view. He may not be the best Manny Pacquiao he’s ever been—but he’s still Manny Pacquiao. That should be more than enough to matter in today’s welterweight scene.

Hidalgo, sorry to rain on your parade I’m happy Manny won too but this WAS a rehab fight between TWO guys coming off losses 000000000 comparison between Mayweather winning a Unification match between two Undefeated Champions for the Lineal Crown at 154… The fight being at a “Catchweight” is of no consequence UNLESS you give Manny no credit for Margarito, Oscar and Cotto???

“Cheers soldier.”

Thanks, Spartacus 65. This fight was every bit as important as Pacquiao’s KO loss to Marquez last year. This was a defining fight. It was a revealing fight. Pac didn’t even show any weakness to punches. He never looked rattled once and Brandon caught him with some good ones.

What does a man have to do to prove his greatness? Die?

LOL, can you imagine how many hearts sunk tonight when Pac not only did not lose, he kicked a$$ in incredibly dominant fashion. I don’t see how anyone can be anything but impressed considering how Manny’s last year went.

Rehab fight? What was it that Mayweather just had with Canelo? “C-A-T-C-H-W-E-I-G-H-T fight. Did you see Pac try to limit Rios weight for this fight?

And who gives a flyin’ F if they “were both coming off losses?” It’s Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios. Not David Letterman and Jay Leno.

This was one of the most important welterweight fights in recent history and you say “let’s not get carried away?”

Notes: Pacquiao tied Rios up whenever they got close. Ref does not step in all the time and Rios was able to connect with his other free hand. Ref was right. You make an illegal move and get tagged, your fault. Ref should have warned Pac for clinching. Rios’ corner should also have complained to the ref about the clinches.

Garcia to Rios: “Stick out your jab, not your tongue.”

Sorry Mr. Garcia, but Rios was ill prepared and looked pudgy and lethargic. I’m not impressed. No footwork, hardly any head movement. I know Rios fights like that but in the end, you’re still the trainer and he’s your responsibility.

I thought Garcia vs Roach would have been more competitive and entertaining.

Boy did Pac smash Rios. More importantly, he smashed two-face team Garcia and proved without a doubt that having Alex Ariza in their camp meant squat. Nada. Zilch. Zip–same as it meant when he was in Pacs camp.

If you think they didnt pick/accept someone fitting for Pac. to raise a good argument for him to be right back in the mix, you’re delusional. In fact, most fighters that lose do that.

Tomato can floyd would be afraid to used his right hand head as the way to beat Floyd is after he throw it he crossed up and you hook him before he start to hold as he alway do.
Remember Ali vs norton Ali was the better boxer but he held his left hand too low so norton was told to block the jab a hook Ali and norton did all night and broke his jaw.
Norton was really a slugger not a boxer.

obbieman, hey thanks for the shout out. Take a look at my previous message as an answer to your post, in Jaw Jolting fashion. But the chances of that happening is not good, Pac’s going to have to fight at least 1 more Top Rank fighter, and in doing so, he’ll take more punches. Many more punches than the older Maywearher will. Pac’s Achilles heal has been exposed and a a fighter of Mayweather’s caliber will expose that fact. I mean no disrespect to Pacquiao when I say that, he’s a great fighter IMO.

Defense, speed, movement, control of the pace, ring smarts. Tonight he was better than Duran, Robinson, Leonard, Hagler and the rest of the great ones. The world is shinning brighter, people have got their hope back, poverty has taken a hit, hope is smiling on us all. Manny Pacquiao set an example to us all. He shook the hands of wrong and shameful and forgave them all. He promised to win this for his country, his family, his camp and for himself. Never again will we see the type of greatness tha was inside the squared circle tonight. Manny Pacquiao put on the most graceful, explosive, dominating boxing performance ever. This man was poetry in motion. He played with this tough former world champion and sliced him into pieces. A day of celebration needs to be presented for Manny Pacquiao today and tomorrow.

Prince, good evening. Fair enough. A lot of media pundits lauded Canelo as a stern challenge. I myself avai.st my better judgement felt that in spite of his shortcomings that Canelo would rise to the occasion and raise his game a notch. However Canelo and his corner showed up for a payday and the tip off was old man Mayweather saying that he knew that Canelo wasn’t prepared properly for Junior. Fighting the likes of Khan certainly keave little to the imagination. I hope sincerely that fight doesn’t come off.

Another bad night for Boxtradamus.

The truth is that the majority of the fans here that picked Rios over Pac did it for one main reasons; wishful thinking. Which by the way, was the main reason for almost the same group of people picking Canelo to beat Floyd.

I mentioned it before the fight, Rios record has been filled with lots of low quality opponents. His style makes it simple for an experience trainer like Roach to devise a plan that neutralizes Rios’ come forward aggressiveness…it’s a no brainer.

ROUND 12
Rios clearly needs a knockout to win this fight. His corner is yelling for him to go for it. Pacquiao’s corner is telling him to be smart. Rios starts off the round slowly, without a hint of desperation. Rios throws a series of left jabs that miss their mark. Hard right hook/straight left hand by Pacquiao that rocks Rios. Rios just smiles at him but his knees buckles for a second. Hard left hand by Pacquiao. Rios is not letting his hands go at all. Left jab by Bam-Bam. Right jab by Pacquiao. Rios clinches and does nothing. Rios is now bleeding from above his left eye. Pacquiao is sticking and moving beautifully. The crowd is on its feet as Manny jabs and hooks. Rios is not going for broke at all with ten seconds left. Pacquiao moves from side to side and lands a right and left. Rios stands there as time expires. That all boys. See tumbo pac twisting punches will cut rio upmlike in the old days. PAC a boxer not a slugger.

ROUND 11
Rios slowly walks to the center of the ring without a hint of desperation. Pacquiao is not taking any chances as of yet and seems content to pick him apart little by little. Rios slowly walks forward with meager left jabs. Hard left hand by Pacquiao. They clinch. Hard right to the body and then to the head by Pacquiao when they break. Rios finally opens up his offense and digs a few powerful hooks to the body. Hard left hook by Rios that got Pacquiao’s attention. Another hard left upstairs by Rios. Another hard shot to the body by the American. Pacquiao breaks the guard and lands a hard straight left. They posture for the final ten seconds. Rios’ best round in a long time.

Roy

ROUND 10
Pacquiao throws two decent right jabs, followed by a hard right cross on the inside. Rios seems to be fighting just to stay afloat for the distance; he’s not taking any chances. Pacquiao is cruising and not going overboard with his offense. Nice right jab/left cross by Pacquiao. Pacquiao appears to be taking the round off, but it could be because Rios is doing very little to make him react. Nice right hook by Pacquiao as he scoots to the right. Rios throws an errant right hand when he traps Pacquiao into the ropes. They separate and Pacquiao jabs him several times. Rios is looking haggard and defeated; Pacquiao is unscathed and looks as fresh as the first round.

Roy

ROUND 9
Rios is stalking Pacquiao early but not letting his hands go. Straight left by Pacquiao. Another. Stiff right jab by Pacquiao. Beautiful 7-punch combo to the head by Pacquiao. Both of Rios’ eyes are badly swollen now. Hard body shot by Rios. Pacquiao lands three right jabs and Rios clinches. Rios lands a rabbit punch and is warned by Rodriguez. Pacquiao is all over Rios, though he’s not throwing incredibly hard punches. Hard right by Pacquiao and Rios returns the favor. Rios opens up late with a flurry of punches and Pacquiao follows suit until Bam-Bam ties him up.

Roy

ROUND 8
Robert Garcia is imploring Rios to throw more punches between rounds. Rios is very flat-footed to start the eighth. Rios backs Pacquiao into the ropes but he doesn’t capitalize at all. Bam-Bam throws three left jabs, but they miss their mark and are soft. Pacquiao throws a three-punch combo to the face. Rios ties up Manny and digs shots to the body. They separate. Hard straight left/right by Pacquiao but Rios blocks it. Hard left hook by Rios clean to the face, but Pacquiao didn’t blink. Rios still fighting out of a defensive shell and not letting his hands go. Pacquiao is dancing around the ring and throwing punches from all angles whenever he wants, though Rios is blocking most of them. Hard left hand by Pacquiao near the bell and Rios just smiles.

Posted November 24, 2013 1:16 am

Credit to Rios, he survived the 9th.

ROUND 7
They trade blows in the center of the ring. Right hook by Pacquiao, though it’s not hard. Pacquiao again darting from side to side. Hard right/left by Pacquiao. Rios misses with a straight right. Rios’ face is now starting to redden and swell all over. Hard right to the body, followed bya right/left to the head by Pacquiao. Rios looks desperate now and lunging with his shots. Nice three-punch combo to the face by Pacquiao. Crisp right/left to the face by Pacquiao. Hard right to the head by Rios but Pacquiao returns the favor. Awesome right to the body/head by Pacquiao. Pacquiao seems to be toying with Rios now, who is starting to fade badly. Nice right hook by Pacquiao lands square on the face. Rios needs to do something to get back into the fight.

Posted November 24, 2013 1:15 am

Adrain…you are kidding yourself. Did u reallt think rios, the 140 pound version of margs, was a threat to pac? Get real. Rios was a sacrificial lamb. Rios was outboxed by alvarado who isnt even a boxer. Rios is tailor made for pacfraud. May would destroy pac. But arum already had an opponent picked out already. A top rank tomato can

early knock down for Pacquaio, allowing Rios to shake off the jitters. At some point during the fight Rios will be egging Pacquiao to “come on!” A La Ricardo Mayorga. Pacquiao will oblige and will commence to pummel Rios who will snatch 2 rounds at best before either being stopped on cuts or by the mercy of his corner.
