    Marquez-Juarez is on showtime. No way they could sell this as a PPV since it was rescheduled and the opponent changed. Should be a good night of boxing, but I think Juarez will get schooled. He has the tools but no heart.

    I think you meant 6PM, per the HBO link above. It says it's live, so that would put it at 2AM in Cardiff.

    Ah yea, thank god they accommodated us Americans. I did not want to wake up early to watch that fight. Actually I'll probably be up watching soccer but yea it's better that it's at 6.

    Kessler vs Calzaghe was a very entertaining fight. I think that Kessler would do better in a re-match. If he threw a little bit more last night, I feel he could have nullified a lot of Calzaghe's attack. Kessler seemed to be looking for the perfect shot, rather than trusting his natural ability to throw and get out of the way. He showed that early in the fight, and again in the 12th round. Great atmosphere for boxing though, that would have been a fun fight to attend. Boxing needs more events like that one.

    Anyone watch the Juarez/Marquez fight? I did not see it.

    I wish Mayweather vs Hatton was in England, they could draw 60,000+ at a soccer stadium for that fight. MGM Garden Arena only holds around 18,000. I wonder why Cesars Palace doesn't host any fights in their outdoor stadium anymore. This fight would be perfect for it.

    Okay, people... big fight this weekend. Shane Mosley vs Miguel Cotto in New York. Cotto will get the majority of the crowd support, but I'm having a hard time believing this fight will go the distance.

    I'd say that Shane, in his prime, would take care of Cotto. I'm still picking Shane, but the age difference is a concern. Cotto has shown that he can get hit, but he eventually wears down his opponent with his relentlessness. If Cotto can take the fight into the late rounds, I think he has a chance. However, he's going to take a bunch of shots in doing that. Mosley won't run and will even brawl, at times. Cotto will push the pace, as he always does, but I think the key will be the body work that Mosley puts into each round. Shane has a brutal body attack, and if he can get that off against Cotto, I think it will make the fight easier for him and possibly offset any fatigue in the late rounds. Should be one hell of a fight. If I wasn't already spending a bunch of money this weekend, I'd skip the Kings game to watch this fight.

    Go Shane!! Pomona High School representin'!!

    Getting back to this. I really hope they don't rush Bernabe Concepcion like they did to Boom-boom.

    Pac-Man to fight JMM in March.

    Whoever wins this fight is the king of the 130 LBS weight class.

    Anyone watching the Hatton/Mayweather 24/7 on HBO??

    I hope Hatton pulls of the upset. Doubt it'll happen, but one can hope. I just hope Mayweather doesn't spend the entire fight running away. I will be a sucker and purchase the fight. Just an excuse to have a party.

    24/7 has been great. The Mayweather stuff is more of the same, but Hatton is great. I like it better than the first one only because Oscar was so boring.

    Anyways HBO does a great job with their sports stuff, especially boxing. I'd love to see what they could do with a big MMA fight.

    Regarding the fight, I really don't think Hatton has a shot. I hope he makes it a fight, Hatton will come forward and his will won't be broken. But I don't think he's fast enough to catch Floyd who will be in and out all night long. And I don't think his hands are fast enough to be first against PBF. I'm predicting Floyd in a 12 round lop sided decision, BUT let's hope Hatton catches him early and makes things interesting.
