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.

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.

That would be an uuuuugly site to see, and him ever being caught on anything, but tremendously outweigh Manny being put to sleep. In fact, it may just wipe away all of Manny's recent lackluster performances, and he'd probably be forgiven for them.

I just see Floyd being the smaller man (of course) and pot shotting Canelo, until it's painfully obvious that he (Canelo) is thinking too much. If Canelo's stamina hasn't improved, then more than likely wear down from thinking too much, playing the feint game, and missing shots early.

The funny thing is, I like Canelo's chances. He has that quick little head movement, he's able to work his jab pretty good, and those "gotcha" punches that he fakes his opponents out with, can be his biggest asset if he plays it right.

This is the biggest fight left for Floyd, until his contract is up, or whenever he decides to walk away. With that in mind, he may just go toe to toe and go all out, but who knows.

The fight will probably more like whitaker/oscar or oscar/mayweather

I didn't look at it like that. Hmmm...
