IN MY OWN OPINION, what turns me off about this fight while watching the L.A. Press Conference or even behind the scenes of there commercial is how SOFT with words and all around behavior these to show with each other. It almost made me forget that these 2 were actually going to fight each other the way they joke, Smile & laugh at ech other. I mean come on give me a break, i can't be the only one shaking my head at this. I mean somebody tell me, WHAT'S THE POINT OF FIGHTERS FIGHTING IF THEY LIKE EACH OTHER THIS MUCH. SAVE ALL THE RESPECT AFTER FIGHT, AFTER YOU SEE WHAT THE FIGHTER CAN DO. How does a guy like Bradley who's been known to be confident & to get under the skin of his opponents, all of a sudden be so warm hearted. It's like Joshua Clottey (remember him) all over again. These 2 can not even do a Stare Down without cracking a smile and laughing and thats pathetic. Now anything bad at this point to be said by either fighter is a contradiction because these two made it very well known that they "LIKE" each other... jeez, where Chisora - haye, Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Mayweather and plenty other mean fighters when you need em.


Speaking of Contradictions whats with the "Peoples Champion" Manny Pacquiao "The Man Who fights for the People before Money" all of a sudden be "the man that fights for Money before People". This guy headlines Yahoo news stating the reason the negotiations between him and Floyd fell apart was because Floyd gaurenteed him more money than he's ever made and ever will make in boxing and (alledgedly) not a penny more. Yet months prior went on record to say he'd fight him for a lesser share. He was even as bold to state that he would fight him for free.


Last but not least we have Freddie Roach being a week removed from basically calling this fight unworthy to now believing it's a "very good fight". I like Freddie & respect him as a trainer but never let money take your WORD away man. You Can still speak your mind about how you really feel and still sell the PPV just as well as you can by not.


WHAT'S WRONG WITH THESE GUYS?

Im just as lost as everybody else. I saw that embarrassing video of the stare down (IMG:style_emoticons/default/no2.gif) To be honest though, if I had a stare down with Manny, I would probably laugh a couple of times too...he does have that look on his face that warrants a laugh or two.

Really though, Timmy is always this "no nonsense" guy when it comes to a fight, and now suddenly, he's in this laughing mood. I mean damn, I know Manny is putting some serious money in his pocket, but like you said, hold that shit until after the fight.

As far as the money situation, Pacquiao has sent us all on a roller coaster. Yes, he did say that he would take the smaller split, then the 50/50 talk came up again, so we're stuck. Gotta love the guys who talk trash and demand their money, not the guy who tries to please every damn body, then suddenly cares about his money.

Im not knocking Pacquiao for his behavior throughout this press tour...it's typical Pacquiao. Im just a bit pissed at the serious guy with the nasty mustache, who never blinks.

Lol, yea i hear you man, but don't your think that a small reason why Juan Manuel Marquez has Pacquiao number is because he actually shows his dislike towards Pacquiao hence taking him out of his sort nice guy smiley face image, i believe getting under a guys skin can play a factor in the way they perform in a fight and guys like Bradley, Mosley, Clottey & Cotto just never showed that. They always claim they respect him or like him before they even fight the guy. I don't know maybe it's a tactic on Manny's part or something to bring out the nice side of his opponents or whatever, i just wanna see a fighter that just does not have any respect for the guy and let Pacquiao know that this ain't no smiling fun game "when we fight i'm coming for your head".

You know, I never thought about the Pac/Marquez situation like that. Good stuff. As far as his past opponents, I just believe that they're happy to be getting a payday, especially Mosley.

He definitely lucked up, especially after he whored for that Mayweather fight, had a good round and blew the rest, then had that terrible outing against Mora...he knew that was his last chance at a paycheck.

I believe the only guy that can provide that "no respect" factor is Mayweather. Think about it, he has said and done too much already, and people hated just for being who he was. They hate him more day by day, because the fight hasn't happened yet.

No matter what his approach may be during the build-up for the megafight (if it happens), people are still going to boo him like crazy, so Im sure he'll treat Pacquiao the same way he treated De La Hoya during their huge build-up.

Hell, if I knew I was gonna get shit on by viewers and people in attendance, then I'd act an ass too. Besides, the same results are already predetermined, so I dont see the point in reserving any asshole-type behaviors (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Yea i think Shane went in to that fight without a plan b and so forth, i mean u can see after shane caught mayweather with the right hand that he kept trying to shoot it out there as if mayweather would not figure him out even after being hurt by it. He thought his gameplan (right hand) would do it for him but mayweather did what shane couldn't and thats find the answers to the problem.

And Yea Mayweather is that guy that would get under his skin but it's like you said "if the fight happens" which i'm pretty shore it will one year or another (lol), but at this point i'm spent on all the back and foward hoobla that these 2 do to keep the buzz alive. So much so that i can finally say that i don't care as much anymore if it does happen or not. 1 things for shore though is that unless it does I'll always be curious on how it would play out though.
