Too much [expletive] footing basically, then again that is just boxing. I prefer a slug fest more street style fighting. I respect Mayweathers game guy is a great fighter, boxing just isnt my cup of tea anymore with a lack of heavy weights.

If you want that, then just watch Mexicans. They almost never disappoint. That is, true Mexicans.

Did you watch the previous two fights on the undercard? Those were slugfest quality. There's a ton of awesome fights to watch in boxing still, you just have to look for them. I mentioned Mexicans, but Argentinians are real tough too. Maidana and Matthysse are fun to watch.

Naa I didnt watch the undercard fights just tuned in for the big title fight since I was bored. I'm sure there is but I havent really looked to much in to it.

Yea thats what I watch a lot more of then boxing. The rumors of the Silva and Jones fight just have me hype at the thought of it. That will be one hell of a fight if it were to happen.

It would be a great fight to watch and could go either way, but Silva is the best striker in the world and even though Jones has the reach if the fight is fought more on the feet I have to give it to Silva you just cant hit the guy, and when you do he is great at rolling away from the punches to limit the damage.

 

If it goes to the ground though Jones has the better shot, I mean when he rains those elbows down its almost unfair, but Silva has great technique in the clinch and probably is working on his wrestling as we speak right now, Jones just never leaves himself open for a submission like other fighters he is great at pacing himself on the ground. Its hard to pick against either guy because their both great fighters, but I feel that Silva would win, when he is zoned in and isnt trying to be a show off ass hole he is the best fighter in the world IMO.

I agree Stand up Silva but I think Silva can beat Jones on the ground too, Remember Silva is black belt and Silva is amazing off his back and has proven that, and damn sure is dangerous on top. But Jones is really dangerous on the ground so I don't know lol but I think Silva can hang if he's taken down. Boy it will be one hell of a fight

Yea, good point. Its just that Jones is pretty solid on the ground with not leaving himself open for a sudden submission. The more I talk about it though the more I wanna see it lol.

Yeah that is why I said I don't know they both are so great on the ground. Jones never fought someone like Silva and Silva never fought someone like Jones. And exactly, I really wanna see it now lol.

Mayweather was awesome and no rust as expected, Cotto fought way better. I expected way more from Guerrero, btw where TF!!! was his upper cut so many chances to nail Floyd.

Nah, I knew about him, left him out on purpose. He hasn't been as exciting to me and several others his last several fights. He's seemed to digress a bit.
