i did find amusement in angel garcia's original comments at the first press conference...i didn't think he was disrespectful about it. he didn't call judah a bum or any of that...he just stated fact. i get it...judah was pissed. he reacted and took it to the streets so to speak. that whole ordeal has now blown out of proportion and it's looking highly likely something will go down at tomorrows fight no matter who wins. that's that...no undoing it. god forbid something bad happens tomorrow...and ppl get hurt...it's a black eye for the sport.

now we have malignaggi/broner talking shit to each other...and squaring up and all of that. some of what was said was comical...but i'm seeing a trend here that i think needs to stop real soon. with everyone trying to out-do everyone...and pencil necks with cameras calling themselves jouranalist eggin them on...this is going to take a wrong turn across the board. boxing imo is a classy sport. there's nothing wrong with a little shit talk to sell the fight but in this day and age with social media and everyone with a camera trying to be a reporter....shit is gonna be hitting the fan on the regular. boxing is out of the mainstream already...but encouraging...or keeping this shit alive by giving videos hits and what not is only going to further damage boxings' image.

promoters need to take notice and maybe start including clauses in contracts that limit some of the shit for damage control. not all publicity is good publicity. i know floyd feels like if they're talking about him...good or bad...it's good because it means money for him. he may be the exception. i don't believe that's going to be the case for everyone else. and while hbo was quick to jump on broners jock and sell him as the next floyd mayweather because he's trying to use the same blue print...this kid hasn't accomplished a fraction of what floyd has. maybe al haymon needs to reel some of these guys in and let them earn their way to the top so to speak.

the sports image is very important when u consider it takes money from sponsors to make a lot of this shit happen.

am i alone on this view? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/huh.gif)

Trash talking is good for any sport. Trash talking is not classy and nor should it be. See Ali...he was very creative but he knew how to get under his opponents skin. The reason why we are dissatisfied with Floyd is because he is not talking enough shit. The reason why people are saying Guerrero may have a chance to win is because of the amount of shit that has been talked. The reason why we are so intrigued with the Judah fight is because of all the shit talking that has taken place. I enjoy it. When Tyson told Lewis that he would eat his children that was great!

Broner is ridiculous. Plain and simple, he tries way too hard. I am pulling for Paulie by the way.

Mayweather best moments had to be against Oscar. He had some lines!

I agree that it's significantly declined over the years. The funniest and harshest trash talk had to be the venom that he directed towards Shane and Oscar. At that point, his trash talk was personal, not as witty, but personal and believable to say the least.

This whole, "I'm getting older now" mess is killing his buzz. His last two opponents and upcoming opponent has given him nothing to say. Well, now that I think about it, if he's supposed to be the trash talker, then he should have many things to say about them.

Oh well, I agree with you though...

I don't know Guerrero gives him so much ammunition but I swear Mayweather keeps trying to come off as a mix of Jesus/Jay-Z

Exactly, that's where that whole "I'm getting older" mess is coming from. I'm not sure how promotionally motivated he is for this fight...it's almost like he wants to come and go, so he can move on to other things. Now that think about it, he's really seemed kinda in-and-out since the Showtime deal...as if he's upset and know that he has to fight on a schedule now.

I look at his persona a little differently. May has spent his entire career being a bad guy. He now wants to be loved and adored. He is tired of playing the heavy which is why I think he has let Guerrero talk all the shit in the world. He wants people to dislike Guerrero and frankly Guerrero rubs me the wring way. The way he acted after he fought Berto was the deal breaker. It really pissed me off. I just think May wants to be the good guy. During his interview with Stephen A. Bitch, he actually was about to cry when he talked of his jail term. He spoke about his kids and all that shit. So he wants to switch sides. His Oscar and Shane rants were classic!!!!!!

That's quite a daunting task with such fickle boxing fans nowadays....I hope it works out for him.
