For all the talk from casual fans how "Mayweather is so boring", his last few fights have been very entertaining and action packed. It's been Manny with the absolute snoozefest lately.
Yes I enjoyed last weekend's card more than the Mayweather/Cotto card. I like how Floyd stacks his cards with names (so to speak), because that's what people pay for. Oddly enough, Mayweather's "star studded" cards usually shift about 3 or 4 times before the actual fight happens.
NOW, had the Star Power card kept the Matthysse/Morales fight, and the Ring Kings card's fights changed about 4 times, which ultimately sucks the juice out of it. Now, in regards to Floyd's actual fight (the main event), I've had no complaints about the action.
I guess I look at the whole card, rather than just main event, as a hardcore fan would do. When I see guys dropping in "+1ing" the whole "I'll only buy Mayweather's" fights, reeks of "nuthuggery" to me, but that's just my opinion. As a fan, the curiosity and knowledge of the fact that a fight can go either way, regardless of the match-up, leads me to buy these fights.
Again, Im not saying that people have to buy every PPV card, just to justify the fact that they're a "hardcore fan", not true at all. When guys dont even spend their money on a card, then have the nerve to critique it, that's what blows me.
