Pretty Boy/Thunder

This is going to be an overhyped match, imo. I've seen a ton of both fighters. Mayweather is an absolute genius in the ring, I think he IS clearly the best P4P fighter in boxing. He has OVERWHELMING talent. Hopkins only holds that distinction for being so good for so long and because people think he deserves it. Like Floyd said in the interview on HBO, he's an A+ fighter and Gatti is a C+ fighter. That's how it is with these two fighters. Mayweather has impressive victories over Chico Corrales, JLC, G. Hernandez. AG has lost to the likes of Ivan Robinson, Manfredy, and last but not least, Ward. If you follow boxing, you know the level/class between these opponents is like night and day.

Gatti certainly has come back to win in some fights, but in his other big fight against a higher tier fighter, he basically got demolished by ODH. The pros for AG are that he's got the home crowd behind him, that he definitely has a puncher's chance, and that on fight night, he will probably weigh in 7-10lbs heavier than Floyd. FM got hurt by Corley, so AG definitely has a chance if he can land that one huge shot, but I think FM is just too quick and much too talented to let that happen. It doesn't help that FM could make one bad punch and screw up his injury prone hands. But I think FM beats the living shit out of AG and wins by TKO. Not a huge stake, because FM may just try to outpoint him in a technical fight, but with all the bad blood before this fight, I think FM will step it up a level and try to show who's the king in boxing, setting up a big fight down the road against Hatton or Cotto.

Mayweather by TKO +175 ($2.75)

Re: Pretty Boy/Thunder

Adding the Under 11.5 rounds +105 ($2.05) as insurance in case Gatti catches him with a good shot. I still think Floyd in a 4th round TKO.

This undercard is horrible; I'm literally passing out watching Calderon/Verde match. Chavez Jr.'s will be even worse. And Harris' match will be a quick KO, at least I think.

Re: Pretty Boy/Thunder

Any doubt now? WOW, what a total destruction by Pretty Boy Floyd. I scored three 10-8 rows and that sixth round was almost unbearable to watch, giving him it 10-7. My gf couldn't even watch midway into that round.
