Jack thank you for starting this thread!

I am actually excited about this fight. Most of Mayweather's fighters will be featured tonight and I am curious will he give an interview during the fights? I haven't seen Ishe Smith fight before but I have seen K-9 and well he has holes in his game but he can punch. I am not sure who has the advantage. K9 is hitting 40 and Ishe is trying to be the first Las Vegas born champion. The story lines are great and the fiasco at the weigh ins will spill over in the ring. I am ready to see Love take his place in his division. I am pulling for Smith just because I want to see a first time Las Vegas born champ and Love, they both seem like good guys. Hell team TMT! But then again this is boxing and K9 already said that the boss was next so that should add fuel to the fire.

One of those fights I'll probably watch just because nothing else is on. I kinda like Bundrage, I think he wins tonite, but see him as the most vulnerable champ at 154. I think he could have done better than Ishe Smith... Where was Kirkland, Angulo, Molina when the network picked Smith?

If Shane Mosley wanted to pick up an easy belt at 154, he shoulda picked Bundrage. If Shane cant beat Bundrage, then he should truly retire. Bundrage is gonna try to bang, he's not gonna hide and he's vulnerable. Thats a match that Mosley could have won.

Both of these guys are bullies, in their own respective ways. I like Ishe in this one, he's shown a lot of poise over the past year or so, and he's more disciplined at this point of his career.

It's something about K-9 when he fights nowadays, it's almost like he's thinking of the next big opponent (that he'll never get) while he's across the ring from his present challenge. I know that he always goes for the knockout, but he seems to be serially pissing his way through fight s nowadays....that could play into his demise tonight.

Maybe it's father time first, then the possibility of not getting those big fights, that actually drives him to fight the way he does nowadays. It's almost like he's thinking, "Okay, this is my last shot. If I don't win, then I'm out of the rat race for good". He's always been a "go for the KO" fighter, but he was more poised back then.

I guess this fight will come down to patience and timing, and with that in mind, I'll give it to Ishe by decision, or MAYBE he catches K-9 coming in (somewhere around the 7th). Both guys know how to make it a dog fight, but K-9 gets gassed waaaay too quick, and Ishe still has the tendency to get hit with unnecessary shots...gladly, those shots came from guys who couldn't punch.

Ishe keeps the intelligent pressure on him, closes the distance, and possibly stops K-9 based on K-9 wearing himself out and not seeing a punch coming.

PS: I wonder if Ishe will go to the body.

Floyd is probably putting too much pressure on Love, by talking to him during the introductions.

Love had a great round, sticking the jab and all.

Findley is swole as hell! Lol. I've seen him fight, but I cant remember who it was.

I had no idea Floyd was training Love, or is it just for this fight?

Nice look

Roger is his trainer but for some reason he couldn't make it. It's definitely interesting to see Floyd "cornering" a fight. He did say that he was getting into it but I had no idea it was this soon.

I've seen Findley fight before but I can't remember any of his opponents but he is a solid fighter.... Love needs to keep jabbing but he's measuring that right hand, if Findley sees it he can capitalize off of it. He makes the same motion every time before he throws the right hand
