PAC MAN is this shit, I put 3k on him and won. Too many people thought the extra weight would be too much.

It was a good fight, not great. I think in order to have a great fight, you need two fighters going back and forth. This was simply a whooping. Hopefully De la Hoya gets the message. It reminds me of Ali vs Holmes. It's just sad to watch once great fighters get to slow to pull the trigger. Watching guys like Ali, Jones Jr, Trinidad, or De la hoya who think they are the same guy they used to be isn't a lot of fans for those of us who are their fan.

Pacman will destroy Ricky Hatton, and if Floyd ever wants a real fight he'll beat him too.

Boxing has been dieing for the last half century, it will never go away. I grew up in the boxing world and competed in many amature matches. I have not watched a boxing match since like Holyfeild vs Tyson (that long) but there will always be a place for boxing.

I don't know about that, Hatton looked really good in his last fight and no-ones ever looked like they were gonna beat him at 140.

Pacman would definitely be a favourite and I'd pick him to win but I don't think there's anyone in the world that would "destroy" Hatton at light-welter TBH.

DLH looked awful IMO and it seemed as though he'd really made some mistakes with the weight but Manny looked awesome last night, you could really tell you were watching the best boxer in the world cos he made Oscar look like a complete amatuer over the hill or not.

Whatever the outcome Manny - Hatton is a definite FOTY favourite for when they put it together IMO.

You have missed a lot of great fights.

I think Margarito and Paquiao would be an awesome fight. Few people have movement as effective as Pac's.

Boxing hasn't been truly "great" since the 80's IMO but to dismiss it like that only shows ignorance TBH.

Boxing's had several really great fights in the last few years and hopefully there's a lot more to come.

Boxing makes me appreciate MMA even more

I got so used to watching MMA fight, I kept thinking of perfect opportunities to throw in some elbows and knees.

It was a great fight, I was at odds on the fact that Oscar threw in the towel. I hate for any fighter to have to do that. He did see the inevitable though, Paquiao to keep pressing for a possible knockout. Unlike in MMA whereas you might loose the standup so you just shoot in with the intend of a ground and pound or a lock.

Paquiao is the man!!!!

That's the problem with DLH being the top man there, that fight should have been over at the end of the 6th and you could tell by the end of the 7th that he didn't have anything left.

Someone would have stopped it earlier if Oscar wasn't the boss, if he'd carried on any longer he could have really got hurt IMO.
