    Just a few more days until the so called "Fight of the Century" happens and I'm definitely hyped for this. I seriously cannot hold the excitement inside me so I decided to write it in this thread. Who do you think will win in the Fight of the Century? Do you mind sharing your thoughts and opinions on the fight? Then you're in the right place!

    Mayweather is a scum fuck with zero sportsmanship, I hope the Pac man leaves him laying in the middle of the ring in a pool of blood. I would never usually say that sort of thing about any boxer going into a fight and I never want to see a fighter get hurt but Mayweather is on a different level of being classless trash and deserves a beating.

    he has the right to brag and be a douche, he is a monster. i agree its not cool to be like that but like you said p1ng, he is on a different level than us normies.

    that being said, i do hope pac wins. just love a good upset and pac is deserving of it.

    Its not his bragging that bothers me, its his cheap unsportsman like tactics that disgust me as a boxing fan. I have hated Mayweather ever since the Ortiz fight where he cheap shoted a win, check the video to see what I mean.

    those look dirty i guess. i know nothing of boxing, but i wouldn't let my guard down like that. i think that's just strategy, opponent lets up - you unleash hell.

    I know Floyd's nonsense is just his way of promoting himself but it is incredibly annoying and I'd love to see him get knocked out on the biggest stage imaginable, but when I think about it, Mayweather is the larger man naturally, just as fast as Pacquiao(arguable) BUT he's nearly 2 years older which is huge when fighters are in their mid-late 30s, so it's a very tough call. I'm not a betting man but I would likely pick MW to win, but personally I want Pacquiao to wipe the floor with the MW and retire him. Also fuck paying $100 for PPV; there are "other ways" to watch the fight.

    edit: and yes the Victor Ortiz KO was really goddamn sleazy even though it was a legal blow. Protect yourself at all times and all that, but cmon dude that's a straight up bitch move.

    edit2: Floys is also notorious for abusing women, so yeah I'd love to see him get his shit ruined. Pacquiao has trouble with skilled counter punchers though.

    I find it personally hilarious that people keep talking about how ray rice, Greg hardy, and other athletes athletes who did violence against women are hounded and shamed by the public yet love Mayweather (most notable by Stephen a smith)


    TL;TR
    I hope pacman wins

    I still hope Pacman wins against Mayweather. I'm no boxing analyst, but I think it's still early to tell who is definitely going to win between these two fighters. Pacquiao can throw a lot of punches, but Mayweather can move faster around the ring and has a lot of stamina. If you ask me, the major game changer in this fight is "whose gonna be caught in-between the ropes first."

    Mayweather's legs have slowed down a bit and Pacquiao looked damn good against Algieri although that kid was WAY overmatched against Pacman. Tons of knockdowns and Pacman looked faster than ever, but then again Algieri was kind of made to order for Pacquiao since he's such a light puncher despite his boxing skills/"running" style. I'm no boxing analyst either but I do know how to score fights(well, that's not exactly hard unless a fight is REALLY close) and this one's a toss-up which is why it's so exciting to finally see it happen. I want Pacman to win but the Marquez loss has me a bit worried because Mayweather is an incredibly fast, skilled counterpuncher with much much faster hands than Marquez.

    That said, Pacquiao will likely be in the best shape of his life so I hope he's able to chase MW down, pin him up against the ropes and and knock him out, which would probably retire him since MW's whole persona is based on his undefeated streak. Death by a million left hands is what I'm hoping for. Even if Pac can trap MW against the ropes, Floyd's head movement is very good so who the fuck knows what's gonna happen?

    I'm not really familiar with Stephen A Smith(recognize his face though) but my only explanation is celebrity worship is fucking retarded and makes people very biased/causes cognitive dissonance. I'm not sure about potential financial reasons to ignore Floyd's disgusting behavior though, but yeah it's just one more reason why I wanna see him get humiliated. Floyd is pretty much the proudest athlete in the world and getting knocked out in the biggest PPV fight ever would destroy him mentally imo.

    And IMO it should not be on pay per view where you have to pay to see it. I mean sure its the standard for boxing but as a fan I can say I wish it was on normal TV like during the days of Ali

    You don't have to pay to see it ;) Even if certain streams are too laggy to watch, replays are always put up very quickly after big fights like this, and this is the biggest fight in decades. Agreed though, if it were on regular TV/streamed for free many many more people would watch it, but you know how greedy boxing promoters and networks are. If "alternative" streams are too laggy I just have to try my best to avoid fucking spoilers before I can watch the damn fight. Also there has to be at least one MW supporter here. I can definitely understand why someone would pick MW to win but his annoying way of promoting himself, abuse of women and general lack of basic human decency(in public at least) makes him very hard to like.

    I would've liked to have seen this happen several years ago as well, but better now than never. Kinda like Marvin Haggler VS. Sugar Ray Leonard.

    UPDATE: Only 1,000 tickets were made available to the public. The remaining seats are said to go to the fighters, sponsors and promoters. Apparently tickets to the fight have been appearing online on several sites.

    A large portion of the people actually there will probably just be celebs/rich idiots who just wanna be seen at the fight so they can brag about it, not real goddamn boxing fans. GAY.

    Where all things matter
    Mayweather said on showtime that he was trying to make it happen, but unfortunately it never did. Also it still matters just because he is retiring after this. I'm watching Mayweather vs Canelo right now and after this one is Paq vs Mosley


    BTW the Victor Ortiz incident... Who fault was that? It wasn't Floyd you don't have any conversation when it comes to boxing especially if it's 12 rounds.
