We are almost there. Can Pascal still box like he did against Dawson? How much local fans (Judges?) will be a factor? Has been a while since he faced true opposition - BHop almost 4 years ago (sorry Bute - you were not much of a challenge). Kovalev on the other hand is on a roll after a flawless performance against Hopkins. Krusher by unanimous or split decision.

Looking forward to this one!

Good call on that late round KO result. Would have liked this great fight going on but the ref made the right call. Pascal showed once again his heart but ultimately was was outclassed and looked hopeless. Rematch in 2-3 years maybe?

Stevenson vs Kovalev would be epic for sure.

Pascal put forth a valiant effort but he was ultimately out-powered and out-boxed by Da Krusher.....


Gotta give Pascal credit - he didn't go into survival mode and didn't stop swinging for the fences - which made for an entertaining bout...

In the end, the stoppage was the right one - Pascal looked out on his feet from those right hands...

Rematch down the road would be nice but definitely want to see Stevenson vs. Kovalev - in Montreal would be huge!

So Mayweather vs Pacman is going to be $99.99 in the US

Can't wait to see what it costs in Canada
He who tries will be wasted

Two locally managed boys in action this weekend - Stevenson and Beterbiev. Ticket sales are disappointing but this will be a great exposition opportunity nevertheless as both will be broadcasted nationally on CBS in US. Program starts at 3:30pm!

Expecting KO wins for both.

man.....the fight of the decade is almost upon us!!!

MAYWEATHER VS PACQUIAO - it is really happening!!!

Predictions?

I bet it will be controversial in nature - paving the way for a rematch at least and possibly a trilogy?

Mayweather will win this one by majority decision and the world will clamor for a rematch....which they will do it up as it is too lucrative to pass up!

I really hope manny wins. He has to knock out floyd though.

I highly doubt manny can win if it has to come to a decision. Still, I think manny will come out with that FIRE.

If this ends up being a draw. I am done with boxing. I know its rigged as hell but damn man. You cant rig it like that.

Is it too big with too much potential for future lucrative re-matches to not be scripted/rigged in some way? Would Money jeopardize his legacy by allowing PacMac to win a controversial decision at least once?

Will go with a safe bet of a decision win by Money.

I think your predictions are spot on. Although I'll still be rooting for the underdog Pacman.

Rematch in the Philippines for Christmas 2015 for Manny's people! :idea:

Have goosebumps after I just watched this 30 minutes HBO special. They interviewed fighters that fought both Floyd and Manny plus other boxing experts analyzing the upcoming fight.

Well unless its a knockout by floyd there is no way the judges can rig it. Floyd is all about money too so im pretty sure if it comes down to it money > legacy.

I love manny but im pretty sure that fool is corrupt as hell. Im filipino and he is always hanging out with the most corrupt politicians in the philippines. Shoot, the guy with a glasses that is always in the ring with him is one of the most corrupt politician over there.

I wouldnt doubt for a second this guy will win/lose if the money is right.
