Big fight this weekend! I want Pacman to pull it out just to see him fight Rios next.
Shame on you Mitt, spreading that loser funk onto Pacman.Former presidential hopeful Mitt Romney was at ringside with his wife Ann and shook Pacquiao's hand before the match to wish him success. Pacquiao is an elected congressman in his native Philippines.
I've always been a bigger Floyd fan. I just think he is the better boxer but I will never argue how much manny meant to the sport. He pretty much carried it for years. There is a ton of budding stars so we are in a good spot but I will miss him if he did retire. I don't think he will b/c he was winning the fight. He just needs to decide if he wants to finish his career strong or wear 15 hats and not put 100% into it. I actually kind of feel bad as he answered some questions for me on his boxing char earlier in the week. The one question I asked him was if he felt he needed to get back to being a more volume puncher.. He responded saying he needs to be more aggressive for sure. Marquez admitted after the fight he felt like he was about to be knocked out too. That punch he threw was almost desperation at that point.I guess I'm not surprised either. This week will be filled with a bit of "Marquez is 39 years old, got huge in the last 2 fights and his S&C trainer is dirty as you can be" and rightfully so. But whatever. Manny gets KO'd, Floyd looked vulnerable for a minute in his last fight. If they ever do fight now, who gives a fuck.
Manny is no where near done as a fighter but he should still retire, he has too much other shit going on. I was hoping he'd fight Rios if he won so he could Margarito him.
There shouldnt be at all. I doubt Marquez was on roids. he has a little more defination in his body, but he also said he started to do muscle training which he didnt really do at all. Its not that hard to freaking gain muscle if you work out. Its pretty fucking easy and if your an elite athlete its even easier.I don't follow boxing regularly. I should have known the first great fight I'd seen in years would be marred by a steroid controversy.
