I think its more than realistic…Manny would probably even open up at 2-1….Manny isn’t Paulie Malignaggi…Hatton has had his troubles with speedy fighters (PBF) and southpaws (collazo)…Manny is both…aside Hattons impressive win against Paulie (who couldn’t punch himself out of a wet paperbag), he hasn’t looked dominant since the Castillo fight….IMO, it would be the David Diaz fight all over again

check out Andre Berto vs Collazo on the 17th...free HBO


BUT

the main fight on that card is this BADASS mexican dude named Sergio Martinez...fast hands and he's slick....his only loss? antonio margarito from years ago.....







then you've got the margarito-mosely bout in february.....

Bring it. You can't help but root for Pacquiao, the guy is such a nice, humble, and regular guy. He gives so much back to the community both in the USA and back in the Philippines. He's a national hero for us.



...Not sure about running for Governor in the Philippines though. The politics in the Philippines is crooked... why involved yourself in that Pacquiao?

Yeah.. thanks for clarifying things with that, still a while, but a bit closer than I originally thought. It had been so long I had almost forgotten the Margorito/Mosely thing was still on.

I think I've heard of & possibly seen that Sergio Martinez dude, but not 100% sure. Either way, thanks for the heads up. I'll probably look for that.

Andre Berto's pretty dope. Guy definitely can bring it with power no doubt about it. It seems like every single punch that guy throws is a haymaker. I'll DVR that baby most likely in case I don't watch it live.

Angulo eh? Never heard of him. I will definitely be watching for that as well, plus, I always enjoy seeing Mayorga anyway as stupid as he is. He's a crowd pleaser, haha.

You ever been to any boxing fights by the way pound4pound? I'd imagine so. If so, which?

I haven't. Not necessarily the cost or anything, although they tend to be pretty damn high, but just haven't had the want or passion to really.

You’ve never seen Angulo? Oh man…you’re in for a treat…picture a 154 version of Margarito…

As for going to fights, its been a while bro…I’ve been to a few but the last one I went to was Erik Morales v Zahir Raheem…before that I went to see chavez sr vs ivan robinson at staples…they had like $20 tickets…great vibe….i also went with my cousin a few years back to see Roy Jones v John Ruiz for the title….


Anytime they have em in LA, I usually try to make it…the vegas fights are a little too pricey nowadays

That's still too far away, both should have tune up matches before that.

^Doubt that date has any value. They just set the date for Hatton. Mayweather is one of the last things on his mind at this point. Probably just fan speculation.

They don't plan on these things too far ahead. It's actually impossible really. There's many factors to consider such as the unknown recovery time from his fight with Hatton, how much rest he wants after the fight, and training time for the next fight. And that's if the Mayweather fight even happens. Any legitimate rumors of his next fight will come after his bout with Hatton.

plus manny will train exceptionally hard if the mayweather fight does go down because that will be his "dream" match ..... is 7 months good enough recovery time and training time for him?

Depends on how much damage he takes from Hatton. Plus he'll have another baby by that time so I assume he'll also want to take a break from it all for a bit. And I haven't even mentioned Mayweather's side. There are two people in the fight after all. Will he want to have a fight or two before diving into Pacquiao?
