Any boxing threads around?
well if not, is now...

what a few superb bouts left this year starting tomorrow night with the Mexican legend Barrera out for revenge against the awesome Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao

Manny done a brutal job on him in 2003 and he's even better now and Barrera - older :scared:


but the big one of all in Dec: The Hitman Hatton against the big mouth overated Yank Mayweather, i cannot wait for it... its a tough one to call (bookies have Mayweather as strong fave)

i'd love the Hitman to bust his mouth even wider than it already is and i believe he can do it !!!!!!

see that bodyshot he used to destroy Castillo - 'half a ton' punch, oh you are in for some of that Floyd

Man boxing gets me all testostoreney :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

Re: Boxing thread: Barrera - Pacman II... Hatton/mayw. discuss

The press conf's between Hatton and Mayweather was great stuff :lol:
Floyd flashing his dollars and wearing Man Unt shirts, Fat Ricky in his suit haha....
that is Hatton's style though, he'll burn that fat off 3 months before a fight with some brutal training and at the same time lulling his opponents into thinking he's out of shape and not taking it seriously.

2 unbeaten legends... one a spartan, one a ballerina - this is the sport where the Spartan wins.

Mayweather is never gonna feel pain or power like this..

old fart could hardly hurt another old man, De La Hoya, in his last win.

Hitman will break his ribs like he did Castillo :boxing:

Re: Boxing thread: Barrera - Pacman II... Hatton/mayw. discuss

Not long to go :bounce:

what is Mayweather playing at? he is cancelling training sessions about rumours he has a hand injury

mind games, bottling it or just getting his excuses ready if The Hitman blows him away

CMON Ricky !!!!!

I wish Hatton all the best and a very nice guy from what I can see but Mayweather is the superior boxer.

Mayweather is playing the "injured" card - nice little excuse for if/when he loses ;) Not unlike a couple of top 10 ATP players :angel:

Mayweather has actually had hand issues for a while now since before this fight with Hatton was scheduled- and he was receiving treatment for it in an episode of Hatton/Mayweather 24/7.

I know on this board every injury is an "excuse"- but this is not something Floyd created out of thin air.

Maybe Clara

but if it was so bad i think he would have plugged the bout by now...

anyways, he seemed 'on form' at the press conference so im sure its all back on

Re: Boxing thread: Barrera - Pacman II... Hatton/mayw. discuss

From what I have seen/read- it seems like he wants to get boxing in while he can. Between all of his loud mouth boasting (which I should hate- it amuses me because it seems like he is playing a character)- he has verbalized concern that his body is breaking down. Which can happen after years and years of boxing. Boxing is for sure a sport that can not be too kind on the body.

His hand issues have been longstanding and if I recall correctly to be stemming from an injury that he sustained as an amateur in a 2001 fight against Carlos Hernandez- so again, I still don't buy that he is making up an injury or created a history of being buzzed about as having fragile hands all in anticipation of this fight ;) v I can see why Ricky doesn't want it to be used as an excuse if he win, but my main point is these hand issues are not out of thin air.

I just hope it is a good fight- will be fun to see the two very contrasting styles. I imagine a lot of Maucurians will be coming to Las Vegas- should be a fun atmosphere. Now just need to decide whether we are going to watch it ppv at our home or a friends or go for the sports bar.

I wonder if 50 cent will come into the ring with Pretty Boy again.... and Hatton will have an even bigger legend - Marco Antonio Barrera again :worship:

Knowing Floyd he is probably angling to get Kanye since he won the battle of the records with 50 :lol:

PBF on points IMO.

Hope I'm wrong though and Hatton pulls off the upset. Can just see Floyd cutting him to pieces as the fight goes on. Hatton will likely come out strong but as the fight goes, Floyd will dominate.

Re: Boxing thread: Barrera - Pacman II... Hatton/mayw. discuss

adeegee.. what if with the Hoff loving!!? he's a tool :(

nightrider in the 80's he was ok... then he went to Germany with a jacket with lights on and thought he was the main reason the Berlin wall was coming down - from then on :cuckoo: :lol:


the head rubbing was funny, always a bit silly looking more than tough looking .. but funny :lol:
