Im waiting to see what Roach says about Mayweather in this 24/7, since he cant seem to get his name out of his mouth. Anybody catch FNF when Roach AGAIN made a point to say how "bad" Mayweather's legs are nowadays.
Funny, funny, funny. If I remember correctly, HIS fighter is the one with the bad legs. Opps! My bad, his legs are only bad when he looks like shit in a fight.

Somthing along the lines of...(in my shaky, studdering, raspy voice)
"Heeee cant move lllllllike hhee used too, aaaannndd he he doesnt like activityyy, Cotto gave him prroblems, iiiiimagine what my guy will doo.., Mayweathers thee guy we want and iiii hope he caann ccoomme too the table.. "
And on the second point spot on.. bahahhhahaha.. problem there is a master counter puncher exposed his 'foot work'.. lol
Dude, Im trying my very best not to turn this into a Manny bashing session, but it looks like its taking a violent shift..
I , for one, agree with all of the biblical tjings he was saying. Him and I carry the same veiws I think... but make no mistake if about it, he better be walking on water by fight times because he is gonna be facing the devil himself come june 9th.. I believe....

She better lose weight before the fight...that's her husband's biggest fight yet...wouldn't want the beach whale wife at ringside.
I agree man. Roach seems to genuinely want the fight at this stage, but to make it seem like Floyd is at the end of his rope is ridiculous. Again, Manny's legs has been shitty for his last two fights, not to mention the fights that he lost.
I dont like to bash the guy either, but the people in his camp make it so hard not to. Then Manny comes in with the assist...the "assist" being, "I cant get my English together long enough to answer this pertinent question".
He may very well have his hands full on June 9th...
Personally, I think Roach should approach Floyd with the same attitude as he approached Bradley (or Kellerman) with in their Face-Off episode. Roach said somethin' along the lines of, "Tim doesn't intimidate me at all, 'cause I don't have to get in the ring with the guy." I also heard him sayin' some shit 'bout Floyd lookin' very beatable in the Cotto fight, but as Floyd has said many times, it's looks a lot different when you're on the outside lookin' in. Come fight night, the fighters has to fight, not the trainers. The 1 main thing I believe Freddie is under-estimatin' 'bout Floyd, is the fact that he seems to believe that Floyd would attempt to fight Manny the same way he fought Cotto...toe-to-toe (a style that is tailor-made for Manny). If the fight ever happens, Roach would be in for a rude awakenin', 'cause I'm pretty sure Floyd's gameplan would be to box Manny's ears off, kinda like he did Marquez.

You guys are really giving Bradley a chance, huh ? Especially Professor seems to be pretty convinced...I guess I should go and watch some of Bradley's fights I havent seen yet then.
I would love to see it that way, but...Desert Storm is just way to wide with his punches at times. On the other hand, same is Manny. I hope lil' Timmy will pleasantly surprise me...
Btw : Good points about Manny not having a KO since the DT issue. Havent though about it that way...
I believe Bradley's only chance of winnin' is by way of accidental headbutt. Oh, the headbutt is guaranteed to happen, especially since Manny is a southpaw and Tim is orthodox, plus both fighters like to come forward. The question, is...Will Bradley be ahead on the cards if/when the fight gets stopped due to a headbutt? He definitely won't win on the cards if it comes down to a decision, 'cause there are too many politics involved. Ask Marquez

Pacquiao might lose this fight for not being Pacquiao. Tim is a solid fighter but I disagree that they are cashing him out just yet. There's the Mayweather fight in the clouds also a big cash money with another Marquez fight. There is also Rios fight somewhere in the future. Lots of value left for Pacquiao to be cashed out by Bob.
After watching 24/7 and seeing Tim's background..I really want him to win and so does many of you guys here. That huge payday would definitely help his family and his Pops. But looking at his fights, I just don't see it. I can't even see the one punch miracle knockout because he has a low KO %. His best fight was the Peterson fight and I'm still mehhh if that Bradley can beat Pac.
However, if the Pacquiao that fought Mosley and Marquez shows up June 9th. Bradley might just even it out and MAYBE win. Like I said, Pacquiao might lose for not being "Pacquiao". That or a accidental headbutt comes and Pacquiao bleeds profusely to continue.
Pacquiao is training but he's just that...training. Not training for a Bradley fight. Maybe this first episode is indeed too early to speculate. But on Bradley's part...he is indeed determined to win this fight.
Can't wait to see what's next on 24/7 nextweek.
That's the same bullshit excuse Bob Arum gave durin' his segment on Jim Lampley's "The Fight Game" show. In other words, he inadvertently threw Manny under the bus. I agree with you 'bout the headbutt part, though. I've mentioned that many times myself.
