I like this match up. Especially with both guys exchanging twitter jabs in the past.

Martinez shouldn't have won that decidedly nor arguably should he have even won, but of course, it was his home in Argentina, advantage, plus he's the bigger name, draws more money, boxing politics, you know the rest.
Garcia/Zab had its moments, but although Zab turned it on a bit too late, Danny overall was just too young and too much stronger than Zab. Credit to Zab though also for having courage & fighting back after getting wobbled several times. He hung in there well & survived the flurries.
Arreola was a huge disappointment. Yes, his nose was broken, but even before that for several rounds, he still was simply not throwing enough. He was way too relaxed & comfortable throughout. What was he thinking? No real competitive drive. In fact, he wasted a ton of rounds letting the other guy almost literally just chill throughout. Also, surprise surprise, yet again, he did not come in good enough shape. Too much Alberto's apparently.

He fought Julio Diaz. I'm sure they're still airing the fight.

^ Ah yes. Checked it on my listings this morning, it's supposed to air again tonight, I'll watch.
What do you think about Paulie & Broner?
I don't know why so many people are giving PM so much credit. He's never been all that impressive to me, doesn't even have much knockout power. I think Broner should destroy him.

I agree with you. I don't hate the guy & he's a pretty good commentator but you're right, he has very little power. He's more of a points fighter. He'll stay very busy against Broner but AB will be too big & strong for him. It'll be like a rott vs a grey hound.

[expletive]in Manny just stop! FMJ will never accept a fight with you
Manny Pacquiao Still Wants Mayweather Fight, Willing To Now Agree To Any Form Of Testing Required With a 60-40 Purse Split In Floyd's Favour'
Like this picture if you are fans of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather
Manny Pacquiao is still targeting a bout with undefeated welterweight superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr, but the decision lies firmly with the American according to Pacquiao's adviser Michael Koncz.
Koncz recently confirmed that 'Pac Man' will return to the ring in Macau on November 24, and while Mayweather Jr defends his WBC welterweight title against Robert Guerrero on May 4th, the Filipino's adviser remains open to a potential clash between the two.
Negotiations have taken place over the years to create what would be one of boxing's most lucrative fights, with the main stumbling block being Mayweather Jr's request for Pacquiao to agree to Olympic-style random drug tests leading up to the fight.
However, Koncz revealed that 34-year-old Pacquiao would agree to any form of testing required, as long as 'Money' committed to do the same.
"We're open to that fight, we've always wanted that fight," Koncz told iFilm London. "Now it's in Floyd's court because Manny himself said on our last press tour when we fought WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, that he's willing to accept less.
"We're willing to do the blood tests whenever and any kind of testing as long as Floyd does the same and we're willing to give him 60% and we'll take 40%.
"Now it's all up to Floyd. I don't hold out my breath over whether that fight is going to happen. I don't blame Floyd, what his mentality thinking is I' not sure.
"But he's got a few fights left in him, he's not in the prime of his career and he has a strategy so whatever his strategy is, I'm not sure."
Speculation has been rife as to Mayweather Jr's plans following his Las Vegas bout with Guerrero, with the 36-year-old's adviser Leonard Ellerbe suggesting the possibility of a fight in the UK within the next 18 months.
A potential bout with Amir Khan has also been touted, with Golden Boy Promotions founder Oscar De La Hoya admitting the decision lies solely with Mayweather Jr

That Santa Cruz fight was nice. Kid continues to impress. One of the most exciting fighters to watch.

Mares De Leon great fight as expected. Probably a pre-mature stoppage unfortunately though.
Mayweather coming out with Weezy by his side.

You say smart I say boring to watch lol never could get into the smaller guys that fight. I wasnt watching the old heavy weights when they fought but that is the only boxing I could actually watch and enjoy. Last boxer I liked to watch was a prime Roy Jones
