Mayweather Vs. Pacquiao: ITS ON!

UPDATE 1/31/2015:   NOT SO FAST!  As has been with all reporting regarding the subject of a Mayweather vs Pacquiao bout, it seems that everyone is still jumping the gun.  Now Boxingscene has a report that says otherwise and its coming from the head of Showtime Sports.  All I know is this, I won't buy a Mayweather vs Somebody else or a Pacquiao vs somebody else.  I'm done with either of these guys till they fight each other.

Mayweather Is Fighting Pacquiao!?!? Not So Fast...

I've been reading and hearing about how pacquiao vs mayweather is nearly a done deal.  Apparently all Floyd has to do is sign on the dotted line.  Multiple news sources are reporting that Manny has agreed to Floyd's terms and that Floyd now has to just sign off on that.  Ok, first things first.  Both are old.  Both are at the end of their careers.  Both aren't exciting as they used to be.  Both should have fought each other around 5 years ago.  Why drag this out.  Stop reporting about non stories such as Floyd has to sign the deal and its a go.  When its for real and inked, then lets hear about it.

Now my thoughts as I prefaced earlier.  Not really excited. There's tons of fights in boxing that are more exciting than this. The problem is, those are not happening either.  That's the problem with this sport.  Guerrero vs Thurman?  Good.  Broner vs Molina?  Who gives a crap.  Just like Pacman vs. undefeated Algieri or whatever his name was.  How many of you honestly were following this undefeated Pacman opponent before he fought Manny.  Exactly.

  I'm going to give some points that this fight needs to have in order to be worth it.

1.) action

2.) knockout

3.) interesting lead up

By the way, if they do fight, Mayweather wins.

Brandon Rios Comeback Fight: More Like Come'on...

Brandon Rios is an exciting fighter.  He hung in there in his fight with Manny Pacquiao, but didn't win.  This fight was supposed to be his comeback fight and it was hindered by a DQ.  Rios, if I remember correctly was complaining that Chaves was sticking his thumb in his eye during clinches.  Well, the referee listened to the complaints and DQ'd Chaves.  The fight was so close to the end, you'd wish the ref would've just let them fight it out for the last 3 rounds.  Rios did not want the fight to end this way, he looked angry and pissed off about the DQ even though he had won.  Who's next for Brandon?  I don't know, but I hope it's a bigger name than someone like Chaves.  I would love to see Rios Vs. Broner.  I honestly believe Broner would give Rios problems, but the fight would still be a competition between both.

Mayweather Vs Maidana 2: Rematch is on!

Ok, I haven't been watching too much boxing lately.  The last fight I saw was the first Mayweather vs. Maidana match.  Floyd Mayweather won that one.  I think he lost the first couple of rounds, but he won the rest convincingly.  I think he will win the rematch even easier.  I remember reading a Mayweather getting knocked out prediction on a boxing blog(Xerndro Boxing) that had a poll up that suggested Floyd would get KO'd.  It didn't have too many votes and still doesn't.  I wonder why. My question to anyone reading this is this.  How many of you think Floyd will have it easier this time against Marcos?  He's been in this position before.  I'm not even sure if I'm willing to pay money to see this one.  I'm expecting a repeat tilted with Mayweather looking more impressive.  I almost wish Floyd would have fought someone different since I keep hearing about him only having a few more fights.  Why waste it on someone you beat convincingly?  That's my 2 cents.  Oh, I should also mention that Cotto looked superb against Martinez.  I'd rather see a rematch with Cotto and Floyd.

Amir Khan Is Officially Fighting Luis Collazo On The Mayweather vs. Maidana Undercard!

I don't like to brag, but if you look back at a post I did on who Amir Khan was going to fight next,  you would see that Luis Collazo was at the top of the list of my likely candidates.  Now its official.  When you think about it, it makes sense.  Luis recently dismantled Victor Ortiz in 2 rounds.  This put him all over the boxing world's radar again.  He hasn't really been making a name for himself ever since the Ricky Hatton loss in my eyes.  This is his big second shot.  How will he fair?  I'll break it down for you from my perspective as a boxing fan.

Luis has a punchers chance.  I believe he can probably hit hard enough to hurt, knockdown or possibly even knock out Amir Khan.  I think if he(Collazo) wins, you are more likely to see a repeat of the Garcia vs Khan fight that happened awhile ago.  You also have to throw in the underdog factor.  There's no doubt about it, Collazo is a huge underdog.

Who do I want to win?  Well, I love underdogs, but I am going to have to go with Amir.   Amir Khan's an exciting fighter and I would much rather see him fight Adrien Broner or Floyd Mayweather, which is what this match up here will probably lead to.  I just don't think Collazo vs. Mayweather would be interesting, although him fighting Broner is another story.  If Khan wins, I believe he will out speed Collazo and beat him to the punch every time and win on points.  I don't see him getting a knock out, maybe a stoppage by the ref though.  Amir just has to watch that chin of his.
