    No big hype, no lead up, nothing. The fight was decent, but in all honesty, I couldnt get into it. Im not a pacquiao hater; I love Pacquiao, but I just couldnt get into this. One of the things that I LOVE about boxing is how good boxing is at making fights feel extemely meaningful. This fight had none of that.
    Pacquiao should retire or fight Crawford.
    I dunno...I guess all I am trying to say is, that from a big Pacquiao fan standpoint, I dont want him to Roy Jones it, and I dont think his skills are gone, but I dont think the guy is going to be making waves any time soon. Tonight felt off.

    Welcome to the club. Watching Pacquiao route someone for a 3rd time will do that for you. POINTLESS fight.

    Aww so bitter.:lol:

    Not sure why anyone would think losing to a sharp as a knife Mayweather is in anyway comparable to stopping a shot to hell disinterested chubby Brandon Rios, you guys get sucked up into false narratives a little too easily.

    The fight was decent but you're complaining about lack of hype. :rofl

    I remember the days when everyone wanted decent fights and got sick of the hype.
     
  6. Yep found it hard to care about this.

    No intrigue because Manny won the first 2 fights clearly and knew the 3rd time wouldn't be much different.

    Just happy to see Bradley get a payday
