Haven't been on here in 2 years but seeing today that Manny has agreed to everything I figured I'd pop on and see the results.
The most vain man in boxing fake a cut like that?
Hopefully we see the GGG fight at some point. He's the only guy out there worthy imo.
He's got a lot of knowledge to pass on but let's face it even the best can only do so much with Price.
Doesn't a mandatory challenger automatically receive around 30%?
He can't be as confident in himself as I am. I still think he'd win pretty comfortably.
This fight being made is more on the shoulders of Showtime than GBP or Floyd.
Which begs the question, why 152lbs, why not just make it 154?
Obviously we'll only have an idea on the scales and fight time.
For a guy who puts on so much weight rehydrating 2lbs could be a lot to cut,...
You could make this fight with 1 months notice and it would break a million.
I think we'll all be surprised, Garcia- Matthysse is an event on it's own.
Possible Mayers-Cruz on the undercard too. This could be huge.
If the undercard rumors are true yes.
**** undercard - no.
But they'd want to get their $$ clawed back as soon as possible wouldn't they?
And like I said what if a Canelo warm up fight went tits up and he...
Never looked at it that way.
What if Canelo took an L before facing Mayweather?
May as well wipe 500k buys off any potential figure.
The only downside to holding off would be if Canelo took an L before facing Floyd. That would put a large dent in any potential PPV numbers....
Factored into this fight being made?
From what I've read Showtime were aiming for 1.5 million buys and would break even at around 1.2 million....
Just 2lbs? For a guy that cuts so much it could be the difference between seeing the final bell and gassing mid-late in the fight.
Why, so you can make more threads bitching about haters?
I don't get it.
Just shy of 2 million.
Are you serious?
Floyd would get less credit at 147 and more heat from haters.
You with me now?
Chad Dawson said he could make weight no problem, how did that work out?
I happen to think Alvarez will make 152 with minimal side effects, but...
Manny got away with it? Bull****. Pac copped a ton of heat on boards for taking catchweight fights.
