yea ur rite. i think they sacked hi after that

And then there was that self-centred **** he had for a trainer.

For me it was Cotto vs Pacquiao. Heart ruled my head....i should of known the Margo fight took the best of Miguel. Pre Margo the fight would of been different and i still say that. Cotto was like Tyson and many other fighters who rely and have that way of beating fighters with there presence and air of destruction that they brought to fights. Once they have a loss they are never the same fighter.

I've never let my heart rule my head, I even predicted my favourite would lose but one pick I'm not proud of is Marg over Mosley. That was a shocker.
But didn't nearly everybody? That was a very understandable head pick. I worried about Mosley's health going into that fight; obviously the handwrap fiasco changed that.

I thought Lacy was gonna destroy Calzaghe, but so did a lot of people, so I don't feel so bad.

Yeah, I picked Cotto as well. I thought he had a good style advantage in that fight.

At first I thought Pac had a good chance against DLH but then after reading and hearing so much about how much of a mismatch it was I changed my mind

What you gotta remember with 24/7 is, they focus on the underdog more than the favourite for a reason, so they can give the illusion its a more competitive match up than it actually is, hell they had me thinking JMM was gonna do okay against Floyd, not that he would win but.......

Just goes to show all the words, throwing stones, drinking **** in the world aint gonna erase the stylist issues you gonna have to deal with that the opponent brings to the ring.

Understandable mate.

I'm not picking against Pac ever again, I don't even care if he's fighting one of the Klits or Godzilla.

Is this what it feels alike at AA:

Me: My names mcguirpa, and I've got a problem, I keep ****ing backing Ricky Hatton

Everyone else: *claps* we feel you, the first step is admitting you've got a problem
