Mayweather/Khan could've sold out Wembley, doubt they'd actually use all of the venue or you'd be talking close to 90k-100k people, which you'd need P4P legends to sell out IMO.

iS "starched" a KO? or a brutal beating??? I have no idea.

Anywho...JCC also won this past weekend, the most wasted talent in Boxing, he looked like shite!

Cesar Chavez jnr is a fat wasted talent bum who is merely a big embarrassment to his legendary dad. it's not as if he was expected to be that good like his dad but he is so lazy and tubby he didn't even try to become great.

I remember watching him around 2008, and i was impressed with just how much he has improved since then. Under Freddie Roach...

After Martinez beat him and without Roach he has gone back to being nearly as terrible as before.

GGG/Chavez Jr has been set for July 12th.

Can we bet on how badly JCC will get blasted?

It will be fun to watch while it lasts. I really hope the best version of Chavez shows up, but I seriously doubt that happens.

Stratched does mean "complete KOed". Dude was right in the Pac/Hatton pic.

Enzo Mac/Braehmer for the WBA Light Heavyweight belt. He looks better at LHW, fight goes down April 5th, backing Enzo all the way. Seems a good guy.

So I had a big debate over on ESB. I'll just quote what I said over there and see what the thoughts are. It's in relation to Pacquiao's "decline", which I find to be completely non existent.

Now, I did see the uninteresting fights, but I think you really have to look at how his opponent's were fighting. Pacquiao looks amazing against once style; an opponent who comes forward and looks for timing and hooks.

I'll look at the opponents since he became a "superstar", which really started from the DLH fight.

-------------

Oscar De La Hoya - Used an all round game. Would have wanted to push the pace, but was unable to keep coming forward after the pressure of Pac. Pacquiao looked great.

Ricky Hatton - A guy known for gritting his teeth, coming forward and trading hooks. Pacquiao looked great.

Miguel Cotto - See Hatton. Pacquiao looked great.

Joshua Clottey - Hid behind his guard and wouldn't really open up for a punch. Pacquiao looked okay.

Antonio Margarito - Walked Pacquiao down at all times and never took a step back. Pacquiao looked great.

Shane Mosely - Ran away the entire fight and refused to engage. Pacquiao looked okay.

Juan Manuel Marquez (3) - Stayed on the back foot and looked for counters. Didn't really come forward and was able to notch ahead on points. Pacquiao looked okay at best.

Timothy Bradley (1) - Stayed on the back foot the entire time. Pacquiao was able to land on him but the shots weren't huge or clean. Pacquiao looked okay.

Juan Manuel Marquez (4) - Some slight adjustments on the feet meant that Pacquaio was able to negate JMM's previous tactics. JMM was dragged into a fight as a result, and both men went toe to toe . [IMO for this one] Pacquiao looked great.

Brandon Rios - One dimensional boxer who comes forwards and looks for hooks. Worse version of Hatton/Cotton. I have no idea why Pac gets any abuse for the performance in this, again I felt Pacquiao looked great.

Timothy Bradley (2) - Bradley got quickly frustrated from the speed of Pacquiao catching him off guard. He started coming forward and throwing huge hooks. Pacquiao looked great.

-----------------

Whenever Pacquiao looked bad, it was because his opponent was doing something more than coming forward and looking for a big shot (something us Pacquiao fans have to take into account with the fabled Mayweather clash).

Now that Pacquiao's opponents are coming forward looking for big hooks again, Pac is looking awesome. He looked slightly bad because he had Mosley, JMM and Bradley in a row (and then the JMM knockout loss).

To me, Pacquiao looks as good now as he ever has before. To some people that's a bad thing of course, but all I'm talking about is the "decline", which imo is non existent.
