He did say that, yeah. I gave him two rounds.

Snoozefest.
When engaged in combat, the vanquishing of thine enemy can be the warrior's only concern. Suppress all human emotion and compassion. Kill whoever stands in thy way, even if that be Lord God or Buddha himself.

Four was his only real strong one. He won 6, too... but yeah. It wasn't close.

It went down EXACTLY as I figured it would and I was still entertained.

^There's something satisfying about being right.

I can see how anyone who though Manny was gonna win would've hated the fight.

I am hearing the PPV for #MayPac is tracking for an enormous number. If trends continue, I expect it over 4 million

Kevin Iole @KevinI
Pretty certain the #MayPac PPV will wind up over 4 million and quite possibly 4.5 million


Double what Vanna White predicted :lol:

BestWayKilla wrote:^Did they really expect any less? This fight should've happened over 5 years ago. Now, even with all this media hype and huge live gate and PPV buys expected, people don't care about it nearly as much as they would've back when Floyd and Manny were at their best.

This fight is likely going to be made out to be better than it actually is due to all the hype behind it, and upon being re-examined, people will realize it was actually a very "meh" fight (I have the same opinion about the Chuck Liddell-Wanderlei Silva fight). I'm expecting Floyd to cruise to a UD while avoiding pretty much all of Manny's punches and throwing back just enough in return to win rounds. I have no doubt in my mind he has no intention of putting on a show and will instead do enough to win and take home his obscene payout without taking any risks. He'll then probably immediately retire, after which he'll blow through all that money in like 5 years and be bankrupt. Dude rakes it in hand over fist, but goes through it like it's toilet paper.



this is true, but 5 years ago the economy wasn't doing too great and they wouldn't have sold as many PPVs or sold the arena tickets for nearly as much as they did... Floyd and Manny made like triple what they would have if they fought 5 years ago. Although, if they fought 5 years ago, and it lived up to the expectations, a rematch taking place around this time would have sold a lot more and made them both more money!

I was entertained too.. It's fun to watch fighters deploy their tactics effectively. Even if it wasn't a "banger" it was still a nice little chess match to watch. It's better than watching UFC/other MMA fighters use tactics like holding an opponent on a cage for hella long or just taking them down and holding them there until it gets stood up/or they stay just busy enough to not get stood up.

I just hope they won't make the rematch between 'em and sell it down our throats, again.
