Oh I don't mind the drama of the hype and the fan build-up...I enjoy that. I meant the promoter bullshit, the "are we going to see this fight next or aren't we" drama...can't stand that shit...just get it over with, the fighters and handlers should just do what needs to be done, make whatever concessions and sacrifices, just make it happen, it's the fight that makes most sense for everybody, why drag it out and play all these little games?

Trinidad vs DLH is probably a little higher caliber, but I get the jist of what you're saying. However, Intentional is right somewhat.

yes that was a bigger Marquee fight... just the names. Forgot that one .

Although I wasnt sure who was ranked higher or favored for that fight.

That was a hell of a fight on paper..unfortunately ity didnt deliver. This fight..I cant see it not delivering ...just the pressure..to prove who really is better. Everythings on the line here..For JMM a loss and its career over ... for PAC hed be JMM's bitch forever

I don't see JMM beating Pacquiao anymore. He may have been able to a couple of years ago. But both fighters have changed since then.

I think they were #2 and #3 P4P at the time, as Jones was #1. But it may have been #1 vs #3. I actually liked the fight. I like the drama when two elite fighters measure each other. Action fights are great too, but I didn't expect a slugfest in that fight.
