the hatton vs pacman fight sounds good but i want pacman vs mayweather.


Looks like it didn't take long for Pacquiao to change his mind. He will fight Hatton on May 2nd. Looks like Pacman just couldn't pass up on $12 million... one million more than what he earned against DLH.

I really think the split should be 60-40 in favor of Manny, but he agreed to 52-48. I think Bob Arum explained to Manny that he also negotiated a split on the PPV revenues in England (which I don't believe has changed), and would land Manny a total of $20 million for this fight. And Manny should KO Hatton.

Also check out tonight's fight on HBO at 7 PT: Antonio Margarito vs. Shane Mosley.

HBO:
Antonio Margarito (37-5, 27 KOs) makes his triumphant return to the ring after the dramatic 11th-round knockout of Miguel Cotto that brought him his second welterweight title last July. Ranked among the sport's most explosive performers, he hopes to maintain his momentum in this 12-round, 147-pound showdown.

"Sugar" Shane Mosley (45-5, 38 KOs), a native of Pomona, Cal., will need all his ring smarts and physical skills to spring the first surprise of the new year. One of the most decorated fighters of the past decade, the veteran is coming off a 12th-round KO of Ricardo Mayorga last September, and has won six of his last seven bouts.

I didn't catch it, but I heard it was a good one. The reviews say Mosley, surprisingly, dominated from start to finish. I thought Margarito was going to win, but Mosley would at least challenge him for a bit 'til Margarito took over. It was a different story than I thought... at least, according to what I read. Anyone catch it?

Yeah, X-bay, it was great fight, but not for Margarito. :wink: I also thought Margarito would win, especially after he took Miguel Cotto’s best and still annihilated him. But Shane was extremely sharp, went to the body early (unlike Cotto), and countered Margarito’s jab with overhand rights all night. He was also wise in tying up Margarito inside whenever he could and was elusive enough to stay out of trouble and continue his attack.

On another note, last night’s fight marked the largest crowd ever at Staples Center. Great for the sport.

HBO: DOUBLE HEADER ON WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING, SATURDAY FEB 28TH 7 PM PT

The highly anticipated main event pits former featherweight and super featherweight champ Juan Manuel Marquez (49-4-1, 36 KOs) from Mexico City, Mexico against former lightweight champ Juan Diaz (34-1, 17 KOs) in a scheduled 12-round blockbuster lightweight contest. Competing for only the second time as a lightweight, Marquez looks to make a statement in his new division by taking on Diaz in his hometown. Former unified lightweight champion Diaz seeks to reestablish himself in the division and ultimately regain his championship.

The evening opens with undefeated featherweight champ Chris John (42-0-1, 22 KOs), from Jakarta, Indonesia, battling Houston's Rocky Juarez (28-4, 20 KOs) in a scheduled 12-round bout. John has fought his entire career in Indonesia, Japan and Australia, and now puts his title on the line in his American debut. Top-rated challenger Juarez was last seen scoring an 11th-round victory over Jorge Barios on HBO in September.

Hey, what up, Broe. Yeah, the Marquez and Diaz should be a good one and non-stop action. He’s the underdog, but I'm picking Diaz. Great guy, too.

Great fight. Diaz came out strong and aggressive and rocked Marquez a couple of time during the first 3 rounds. It was a pretty even fight going into the 8th round with both giving and taking and just going non-stop. Then Diaz suffered a really bad cut in the 8th (from an uppercut), and that seemed to affect him instantly (blood getting into his eye) and was KO’d in the next round.

Marquez’s advatanges was he was a better counterpuncher and had a slight advantage in speed. His defense was also very good, slipped many punches and avoided getting hit with combinations.

At the point of stoppage in the 9th the judges scorecards were even, and it was really anybody’s fight.

thought i bring htis thread back to life... Surprised there hasnt been more talk about the Pacquiao Hatton fight and its only a few days away... What are you thoughts on the fight?

I think Manny is the overall fighter, but Hatton definitely has a chance to do some damage. But I still think Manny will take the fight

Hatton seems like a battler, he will be in there taking everything that Paquiao has. He is like a Mickey Ward type of fighter, you wouldnt think he is so bad ass....but he can take a beating.

It'll be a tough fight, but I think Pacquiao will take it in the 10th.

Okay, the fight is tomorrow. I expect a very good fight. This one will be a tough one for Pacman, probably his toughest yet. He has a very good chance at losing this one. If Pacquiao wins this, I think we can solidify him as the best current pound-for-pound boxer.

Guess who's back... yep, Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. is back. He's going to fight Juan Manuel Marquez in July I think. If this move proves anything, it's that this is a warm up match for Mayweather, although Marquez isn't really the type of guy you'd want to warm up again. Then, the winner of Pacquiao/Hatton will be Mayweather's next opponent.
