OFFICIAL: Mayweather vs Pacquiao

Postby bruins2012 » Fri Feb 20, 2015 8:18 am

I don't really have the words to convey how I'm feeling right now, so let's just let the magic of the internet do it. YouTube! Embedded tweets! Reaction GIFs to embedded tweets!

But in all seriousness: The Fight is by all accounts nearly here. It could be announced tonight. The rumor right now is that it will be announced later this evening. We'll be here. You should be, too. Five-plus years of waiting may finally be over. Mayweather vs Pacquiao may be upon us.


Dan Rafael
Basically every1 involved in #MayweatherPacquiao (both sides) simply waiting for Floyd to announce. All are calm & say negotiation complete.


Bible of Boxing @ringmagazine
Rosenthal: I remain cautious but the buzz is extremely strong that a Mayweather-Pacquiao announcement is imminent. Stay tuned. #boxing


Source involved with Pacquiao-Mayweather talks on a possible announcement: "Ask Floyd." By all accounts, negotiations are done.

Super pumped for this if it were to happen but the article said it would be announced last night so I'm already having my doubts. This fight has been giving me blue balls for ages.

Simple speculation at this point. They've been pretty close a few times before. I won't be holding my breath.

But hey, it is fun to think about. I wonder what the drug testing procedures will be for this one. I know that was a major roadblock at one point in time. Pacquiao claimed he couldn't be subjected to random blood testing because he "is afraid of needles" :roll: ........

I don't really know enough about Pacquiao in order to try and call this fight. Super excited to see though IF it does happen.

Actually that has been exposed to be Bob Arum's bullshit, if you believe Ariza that is.

I don't think there ever was a debate about who the better boxer is lol. Not one expert thinks Pacman wins this fight and guess who Vegas will have at probably a 3 to 1 favorite? Not Manny :lol:

I don't believe shit until these two actually step in the ring.

I don't give a fuck who wins. Fact remains a guy who gets hit millions of times a fight and been knocked out three times isn't a better BOXER than a guy who is considered the best defensive fighter of all time who has never lost a fight. Anyone that knows anything about BOXING can see all Manny's glaring technical flaws. Of which Floyd does not have.

But anybody can land a lucky punch though. Then again we have seen what happens when Floyd gets hit hard and flush. I'm sure you only like Manny because he's a mexi-chank so logic won't ever persuade you in this situation. So I will gladly take advantage of your lack of boxing knowledge and groupie bias and offer to bet you through pay pal if this fight ever gets announced. I have made tons of cash off people thinking Floyd will lose. You can be next.

Lack of boxing knowledge :lol: If you think that there is no on going debate as to who is the better boxer/prize fighter between these 2 fighters then you must have been living under a rock. When i said "Best Boxer" I was pertaining to the overall package not just the tangibles that you can see on paper. And its funny how you automatically concluded that im bias when my first statement in this thread had no hint of prejudice.

Ah, people would still go apeshit if Randy and Fedor were to fight today, imo. Better late than never.
