The fight was pretty good over all, but I'm pretty sure Manny is moving into the twilight years of his career. I hope that $-May will finally accept the damn match because at this point I don't see Manny getting truly "interested" in any other fight he might have in his career.
    No, I would say he finally did it because this is the first time he's beaten Pac. And I say finally because Marquez got cheated out of a win in their last match.

    I also think they've devalued that fight like fuck now that Pac has lost 2 on the spin and Floyd is never happy about the money situations. If this fight was to happen, I can't see it being as big as it would've been 3 years ago.

    I hope to see this image again whenever the WWE decides to let The Shield chase titles. And hopefully with an IC Title or a US Title.

    Lol, Mayweather is now certainly at least going for a 60-40 split at, when the negotiations start again.

    I can agree with where you are coming from with the Marquez win. I still don't think it was the dominant performance he was hoping for (Pac had him wearing a crimson mask By GAWD!!!!) whereas he just threw a hook while Pac was charging and it happened to land. Seemed more like a KO from UFC than what we expect from a boxing match; that said, Marquez was the decisive winner, obviously. Hopefully, the steroid accusations turn up false when he does his post match drug test.

    As for the $-May fight, it has been devalued ever since Mayweather started ducking Manny at all costs. He was waiting for his momentum to slow down (which after losing 2 belts, it has) so he wouldn't be setting himself up for failure. Now that Manny is sitting in this position, I can see $-May taking this fight (finally) and we will have what, as you correctly pointed out, should have occurred 3 years ago. The point I am making however, is that Manny has so much on his plate that Boxing is a secondary thing to him now. It's awesome for the man, but it also means that he is less interested in his in-ring bouts. The only one I can see him truly investing his all into will be the $-May fight; that was where I was going with it.

    Coming from someone that queued three hours to get George R.R. Martin sign on his copy of A Dance with Dragons, it's not difficult to guess.

    Boxing is still a thing?
    I'd rather have nothing than have a lie.

    Bigger than wrestling and probably bigger than MMA.

    Did anyone see Henderson vs. Diaz last night? That was another damn good fight.
    Yeah, but the thing about it is...........boxing is lame. It took Juan 4 fights to beat Manny. *yawn* UFC is where it's at.
