First off: as usual the entire interview was focused on Floyd Mayweather which actually sucked. Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless kept asking Rios who would win between Manny and Floyd. Rios gave his reasons for why Floyd would win. Manny said it would be Floyd running the entire fight. Then Stephen A. Smith asked when did Floyd ever run? Rios chimed in and gave a good analysis on Floyd's ring technique. The highlight of the interview happen in two settings: When Rios and Pac were first introduced Stephen A. Smith asked Manny was he okay (In a Michael Jackson (RIP) Smooth Criminal type of way). Manny looked uncomfortable the entire time. Stephen A. Smith kept grilling him. Skip Bayless can only say that Manny had punching power that Floyd could ever dream of. Then Skip asked Rios when was the last time Floyd hurt someone. Rios said it didn't matter if he hurt anyone as long as he got the L. Again a pointless fucking interview.

The second highlight came when Rios was said and paraphrasing: They think I am another Margarito but I am not. I am younger and bigger. I am here to stop the Mayweather Pac promotion. I thought it was great. Nice defense of himself.

Manny was getting grilled by Stephen A. Smith the entire time and it got ridiculous after awhile. I mean they are there to promote a fight not a would if Mayweather match up. This is why boxing needs real analysis. Not these two buffoons! Shit, they could of have Teddy Atlas or Fat ass Dan to ask the questions.

Gotta love the irrelevant boxing "segments" that cover on EPSN during the day. The most witless of all boxing "fans" happen to be in front of the television at that time, while us real fans are stuck in the dark late in the evening, when FNFs comes on. The truth NEVER seems to come to light on EPSN, when it comes to boxing...its only covered at night, when nobody's there to see.

Question, didn't they use the Pac/JMM IV platform, to bring up some old Mayweather stuff, on First Take, late last year? It's almost like Marquez wasn't even there...apparently, they did the same thing to Rios. I would've been rude as hell, has they asked me some shit about Mayweather, when I was the one getting ready to face Manny.

Let's just be real here, most of the nonsense that Manny is spewing, aren't even his words. They're coming from some other jackass on his team. At one point, Manny hardly ever spoke up (read: wasn't allowed to speak) about the whole Mayweather negotiations, fight predictions, drug tests, money split, etc...and nowadays, I wish he'd go back to not speaking about it, because the answers are worse than ever.

Chsel they asked about the JMM knock out a million times! Rios was sitting there looking like "when are we going to promote our fight?" It was sad. Manny was stumbling over his answers and Stephen A. was being a complete jackass. It was sickening to watch. Bayless of course was playing the part of the butthurt fan boy. it sucked!

Now when Mayweather fought Cotto and Guerrero and he went on ESPN he refused to answer any questions about Pacquiao. He actually pissed off the pundits for doing that but shit, who cares. You are go on TV to promote a fucking fight your fight and not some shit that will never happen!

No disrespect, but what, exactly, do you expect from two "pundits" whom primarily cover every other sport closely EXCEPT boxing? Moreover, if you know TMZn's (ESPN...is more like TMZ) steez, you know their M.O. They're into sensationalism, not often the substance (read: objectivity). Remember the Mike Leach vs. Craig James fiasco?

As I commented on the "annoying things in boxing" thread, fans and pundits who talk slick about fighters are pressing their luck. SAS asking Manny "are you alright" in that condescending "you just GKTFOH" manner, is some stuff that would NEVER happen when the cameras aren't rolling. IMO, one of the biggest mistakes fans and pundits alike make, is believing "title dictates behavior". Meaning, b/c one is a "professional", one won't revert back to "I'll whip yo' @$$ status w/ the quickness" type of stuff. While I doubt Manny would do this, I don't put sh*t past anyone.....we've seen Manny's lil' mean streak w/ Margarito.

SAS is a blowhard and Skip isn't an opportunistic, Mr. Grinch-like MF. So, in short, this is par for the course.

S/N: You don't want Dan "Donuts" Rafael on there....b/c if he shows up to ask questions, you can best believe they'll get Arum on there as well.....and who wants to hear some "slow-talking, needing to clear his throat, not sure if he has dementia" grandpop tell only PART of a story?

Quick joke: How do you know if Arum is lying? Answer: Is his mouth open?

so Rios does understand boxing (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif) the way he fights I thought he'd never heard of it.

Bnoles, Manny was getting heated. That nervous smile and bullshit grin he was burning up underneath it all. Rios sat there looking dumb. ESPN has no business giving boxing interviews with those two dumb asses! Skip can only say that Pac punched harder than Mayweather, and Stephen A. Smith kept saying off the wall shit, I actually wanted Manny to smack the shit out of Stephen A. Smith. These two make my head hurt.

Fat Ass Dan may not know shit about boxing outside of what Arum tells him but at least we wouldn't be getting hypothetical bullshit questions!

Rios is Rios. I can't even hate on the guy, he rocked a Clipper hat today, so I have to give him some love.

this is reminiscent of the time they had pac and jmm on there. they showed jmm no respect by asking all of these mayweather questions...and they're doing the same to rios. kind of makes me root for rios in a way. we all know what jmm went on to do. fuck skip and uncle ruckus.

rios admires floyd. i've already heard him using some of floyds shit in the video of him and pac in china. "hard work and dedication!!! blah,blah,blah..."

believe me, if rios could fight like floyd....he would. so would most of these guys....but they don't have the capability or understanding to do so.
