No doubt about it, that this may be the biggest fight since Mayweather-De La Hoya, and I was optimistic about this fight at the beginning but now, I'm not too sold on this fight breaking boxings all time PPV record. For one, it being showcased on Showtime and two, the build up on All Access doesen't seem to match what HBO's 24/7 did then. IMHO, All Access has been a good little piece to watch leading up to 9/14, but is it me, or does it not even come close to matching the Magic of Mayweather-De La Hoya lead up on 24/7? Two guys who generally had bad blood between one another that even shows to this day, with Mayweather's father stepping down from training Oscar for the fight, to Mayweather jr. whole bravado being able to connect just as much, if not even more than the cash cow and the fact that it was I think the FIRST show to give an in depth look at fighters lives and training camp and sort of gave boxing it's first reality series and new look. It was as if the stars and planets all aligned to make it as big as it was... And here we are now, new show, same format, Floyd being Floyd, and Canelo though he poses a great threat in this fight and has the looks to be a star, his aura doesn't outshine Mayweather's and he's still learning English to appeal to the U.S.A. audience. It just all seems to me, something that I've seen before in a fighter being built against Floyd. Now if something dramatic were to happen in this fight that would warrant a rematch, then I wouldn't even argue with the rematch doing numbers bigger than Mayweather-De La Hoya. It would be HUGE double time.

What do u guys on here think?

I also feel if maybe the Garcia-Matthysse had a show or piece behind it to better Promote it than just the fact that it's happening as a co feature, then I think that would help boost the numbers a bit more than it already has, with the "Hate em or Love em" attitude of Angel Garcia's real talk. So far I've hed crickets over there.

What odds are you guys seeing locally on this fight? My guys had it at 13-1 Mayweather a month ago and now it's 3-1 Mayweather. I was on BoxingScene and some folks have commented they feel the air ripe for a fix...so just curious about both situations from folks here.

The closer the fight gets the more people are going to second guess Mayweather. People are saying Mayweather is getting knocked out within 5-8 rounds. They are banking on Saul's power and youth. Oscar is being a blow hard by making statements about how great Saul is compared to Mayweather. I think people are buying into the hype of Saul. Which makes the fight interesting. Now after the fight we will see peoples reaction. From what I can gather most of the people and bookies I know have Mayweather 7-1 favorite.

Interesting point of view, thanks for sharing. I have floyd as a favorite in this fight but I don't think Canelo will gas out but I do think he'll take punishment to the body which will force him to be more defensive than ever and he'll end up getting tagged for it. On the scorecards thing..I'm not sure about this one though..I know it's floyd's backyard but I don't think either man should rely on the cards because I don't feel the final scores are going to read like the viewers scored it.

Canelo will gas out. If you saw the video of Canelo working the bag he was constantly resting and taking breaks. during his workouts he always seems tired and gassed. He will have a good 5 rounds and after that its all she wrote. Mayweather is tagging the body the first half of the fight to take his lungs and the other half. he is going to fuck up that pretty face of his. This will be a Diego Corrales type of performance. That was the only fight Floyd was the underdog and you saw how he performed.

If he does, then he needs to seriously be checked for some PEDs. Floyd still has his legs, speed, and reflexes, but another performance like that, will send the wrong message.

Now wouldn't that be some shit! Imagine if Floyd tested positive for PEDs, that would be funny and tragic all in one. Skip Bayless and Dan Raefel would have a field day! And I can see May stuttering trying to explain himself/ ah shit!

Notice who is doing the majority of the talking. That drag queen Oscar (who really needs to shut the fuck up) and Canelo. Mayweather has been awful quiet. He hasn't said shit. Just really mum. Canelo maybe writing a check that his red headed ass can't cash.

Newbie, I never asked you what your take on the fight. How do you see it playing out? I'm glad you joined this board.
