Just goes to show the how much standards have slipped in this division.

One thing is that it's nice to see someone at that weight going for it. If he tried it against someone else he'd be on his arse in 20 seconds though.

As bad as Harrison is he would absolutely and conclusively destroy Flintoff to the point where he could severely injure him.

Marquez finally gets his win against Pacman.

What a knock out as well. Only seen the highlights but looked full on war again.

Pacman has said he won't retire and wants a 5th fight against Marquez. :lol:

Can't wait.

On paper it's two straight losses, one to a a nobody (Bradley) and one to a 39 year old that he's beaten three times previously.

... more reason for Maywether to bitch-out. :rolleyes:



He was robbed against Bradley, and that's been widely accepted. Apart from media and fans making an uproar, there was also the five indepedant judges that judged the fight ALL in favour of Manny.

No excuses for this loss though, although it did look as though Manny was in control for the majority of the fight... shit can happen if you're 100% focussed, and he looked way to open with that half-arsed faight before he got flattened. He'd definitely win the rematch though, he's far from finished!

... still hoping for that Pacman v Maywether showdown :pray:

As much as I dislike Mayweather, he would probably pick apart Pacquiao.

I'm not so sure.

Always thought Manny had the pace and angles to beat Maywether's defence... but we're talking about arguably the best defence in boxing... ever!

Personally I'm not reading too much into Manny's last two defeats, but I would be concerned about inactiveness form Maywether. He's averaging at one fight per year over the last six years, Manny's fighting twice a year. This and the fact that Manny has beaten fighters that Mayweather's been, but more convincingly. That doesn't mean much as it's a question of style, but it's something to think about.

I thought Manny was dead at first. Did he get up yet?

I wanna see 'Money' Mayweather kick Pacquiao's arse. Don't like drug cheats (and if you're not cheating then why not agree to the testing). Unfortunately I can't see it ever happening now and to be honest both of them are probably not the fighters they were 4 years ago. At their peak I still believe Mayweather Jr. would come out on top.

I agree it's 4 years too late but it still should happen.
Mayweather wants to fight twice next year so hopefully the Pacquiao fight happens.
