Manny's going down. Oscar will be too large for him to hang too long.

I am afraid you are right--- I want Manny to win though--- Oscar is picking what he thinks are easy fights--- I have lost respect for Oscar.

I have to agree as well. I'm rooting for Manny, but Oscar's size will be way too much. Manny moving up one weight class and Oscar going down one weight class are way too much.

Oscar should quit evading Margarito if he wants is legacy to live--- if not he will be for ever remembered as the one who ran from Margarito. I think this fight is an orchestrated farces that rely more on past glory and name recognition. In my country we call it picking the cherry and thats what Oscar is doing.

Oscar should be looking at fighters such as Margarito, Cotto, and Paul Williams all within 7 pounds of Oscar's current weight class, there's no reason Oscar should be facing a man this small. Kelly Pavlik's natural weight class is only 6 pounds north of Oscar, so if he really wanted to do fight fans a favor he'd step into that lions den

Why doesn't Margy step up and stop being a bitch and fight Williams again? Turning down a career high purse because you know you will get beat again, that's ducking.

Cotto is out right now since he just lost.

Nobody wants to **** with Williams, nobody. Oscar isn't any different.

Satori 12-04-2008 11:31 PM

---Good point--- My point how ever is WHY Oscar take such a small fighter when he has good contenders closer to his own weight class. I think Cotto is still a strong force.

Oh and you are right Margarito is doing the same thing he has bitched about for years--- running from top competition.

At the end of it, Oscar doesn't have too many fights left so he is doing what every boxer at the end of their career does and goes after big money fights. Biggest money fight outside the rematch with Floyd is Pacquiao and maybe Hatton.

Cotto and Margy showed when they fought each other that they don't sell that well, especially Margy. And nobody knows who Williams is because nobody will fight him.

Once Floyd comes back, because he will, him and Oscar will have their rematch.

I guess you are right after all at the end of the day its all about the green backs--- It would be AWESOME if Manny upsets though.
