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?

Sometimes I feel like people just barely started watching boxing. Pac has always been about the money, always this is nothing new. After agreeing with the Hatton fight he wanted to pull out cuz' he wanted a bigger split than 50/50. He didn't take the Oscar 70/30 offer from Oscar. He wanted a bigger %. This is nothing new he has always been about the money.

Absolutely! I believe the split in the Hatton fight was something weird, like 52/48 or something shitty like that. Dont quote me, but the numbers were funny (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

I have a problem with the fact that Bradley has had about 4 interviews and in each one, theres a new "only advantage" Pacquiao has over him. 1st it was Power. Then it was footwork. Then it was speed. Then it was accuracy. C'mon dude...It's like you're telling me not to buy the damn fight.

I will just take your word for it, being the fact that I haven't watched any Bradley interviews since the fight has been signed. I will check them out though...
