I was glad the fights were last night. I was at my family Christmas party and my uncles were trying to order the boxing match. Problem was, we were at a cabin they had rented that did have cable, but you could only order ppv by calling the ranger station which was already closed. So we still got fights and for free. This also allowed me to drop some mma knowledge on my dad and uncle's since they're more old-guard boxing guys. One uncle did know about Pride though, and was going on about needing stomps to the head and yellow/red cards! He's the more scrappy one in the bunch so I could see him punting someone in the teeth in his hey-day. UFC: bringing family together for the holidays!

LOL so pac wasn't offered 50-50? is that what you are saying?:

"The much-anticipated bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao is all but set for March 13, a source told Yahoo! Sports.

Mayweather has agreed to terms and promoter Bob Arum is making a trip to Manila, Philippines, to finalize a deal with Pacquiao, the source said."

This was in 2009. Mayweather has very much been consistent with his deamnds to say otherwise is just asinine. I disagree I think Sergio Martinez is the biggest threat to Mayweather because MArtinez can beat him, I highly doubt Pac could ever beat Floyd. LOL so it was Floyd who insisted on a new stadium? A date later than May 5th?, multiple excuses as to why a drug test could not occur?

I disagree that Mayweather is the #1 pound for pound, he hasn't faced the best fighters out there in years unlike Andre Ward and he has never cleaned out a division. This is my PERSONAL OPINION, you are free to agree with ESPN and such, but this my personal opinion. (in regards to pound for pound) Even ESPN agrees that it's hurting Floyd due to his inactivity.
Floyd and Pac both are at fault for that fight not happening. Do NOT give either 1 of these clowns a pass on that. They are both looking pretty stupid right now, both.....

I agree Martinez is the biggest threat. Thats why I highlighted the weight being close, as there is a decent gap between the two. The weight might actually be an issue with that fight, but at WW right now, Pac is easily the bigggest opponent.

I'm probably the best at keeping threads on topic of all time.
