I've been a member here about 3 years and not to get all sentimental or anything, but I have Fighthype.com set as my home page both on my phone, and my home PC. Shit, I even check the site for any updates before my facebook..lls....
Truth be told, as I have tested, im not sure where the resources are from, but I found that this site is the most well advised and accurate. In addition, usually always first in new news...
Proud to be a member, and glad we are growing in popluarity.... no matter how it comes...

Yes. Yes. And yes.
Receiving emails was true, but whether or not the claims in those emails were true is a different story. The problem is identifying who TRULY is a member of Team Pacquiao. Even now, since posting those videos, I can tell you that I've been contacted by "members of Team Pacquiao" regarding a fight with Floyd. I won't go into any details about it, but the point is, there are a lot of "members of Team Pacquiao"...some fringe members and some inner members...who are all trying to hustle in one way, shape or form. That's just speaking from my own personal experience...and believe me, I've talked to quite a few.
Are there any other boxers who believe he's juicing? Well, you already know Paulie Malignaggi has said it. I personally know of several others who have said it. The boxing community is like a small family and people talk. Imagine Floyd's stance if he's being told by other boxers, particularly some that have faced him, that they think he's on something. That's DEFINITELY not going to help make Floyd soften his stance.
And as for rumblings, well, just this week, I know of a story that SEVERAL reporters are sitting on because, for one reason or another, they don't want to write about it. It pertains to Manny's "$20 million guarantee" that Arum said he got for his fight with Shane. Rumor has it a different and much lower number was written on his bout contract. From what I hear, some reporters actually saw that number, but for some reason, prefer not to say anything about it. Why? I have no idea, but I can confirm that I heard one well-known reporter discussing the details of it with a 3rd party.
Things aren't always as they appear. There are a lot of things that would changes a fans opinion if the REALLY knew the kind of stuff that goes on.
In another note Hype, did those particular "team Pac" members sound as if they are interested in a figght with Floyed?
